SOLSBURY HILL (Peter Gabriel) Peter Gabriel - 1977 Also recorded by: BB Band; Daryl Braithwaite; Peter Gabriel; Different World; Erasure; Peter Gabriel; Genesis; David Knapp; Love Seed Mama Jump; Saga; David Young. Climbing up on Solsbury Hill I could see the city light Wind was blowing time stood still Eagle flew out of the night He was something to observe Came in close I heard a voice Standing stretching every nerve Had to listen had no choice I did not believe the information Just had to trust imagination My heart going boom boom boom „Son“ he sad, „grab your things I’ve come to take you home“. To keepin’ silence I resigned My friends would think I was a nut Turning water into wine Open doors would soon be shut So I went from day to day Tho’ my life was in a rut ‘Till I thought of what I’d say Which connection I should cut I was feeling part of the scenery I walked right out of the machinery My heart going boom boom boom. „Hey“ he said, „grab your things I’ve come to take you home“ Hey, back home. When illusion spins her net I’m never where I want to be And liberty, she pirouettes When I think that I am free Watched by empty silhouettes Who close their eyes but still can see No one taught them etiquette I will show another me Today I don’t need her replacement I’ll tell them what the smile on my face meant My heart going boom boom boom. „Hey“ I said „You can’t keep my things, They’ve come to take me home“.
