Schwa Lyrics

Solsbury Hill

Lyricist: Peter Gabriel
Vocalist: Ed McGee
Climbing up on Solsbury Hill 
I could see the city light 
Wind was blowing, time stood still 
Eagle few out of the night 
He was something to observe 
Came in close I heard a voice 
Standing, stretching every nerve 
I 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 said, grab your things 
I've come to take you home 
Eh, don't quit 
To keep in 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 
Oh, my life was in a rut 
'Til I thought of what I'd say 
Which connection I should cut 
I was feeling part of the scenery 
I'd walk right out of the machinery 
My heart going boom-boom-boom 
Hey, he said, grab your things 
I've come to take you home 
Eh, back home 

When illusion spin her net 
I'm never where I want to be 
And liberty, she'd pirhouette 
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 a replacement 
I'll tell them what the smile on my face meant 
My heart going boom-boom-boom 
Hey, I said, you can keep my things 
They've come to take me home
