"Dusk" as written by Peter Gabriel, Anthony Banks, Anthony Edwin Phillips and Michael Rutherford....
See my hand is moving
Touching all that's real
And once it stroke the love's body
Now it claws the past

The scent of a flower,
The colors of the morning,
Friends to believe in,
Tears soon forgotten,
See how the rain drives away, another day

If a leaf has fallen
Does the tree lie broken?
And if we draw some water
Does the well run dry?

The sigh of a mother,
The screaming of lovers,
Like two angry tigers,
They tear at each other
See how for him lifetime's fears disappear

Once a Jesus suffered,
Heaven could not see him.
And now my ship is sinking,
The captain stands alone.

A pawn on the chessboard,
A false move by God will now destroy me,
But wait, on the horizon,
A new dawn seems to be rising,
Never to recall this passerby, born to die.

    General CommentA very relaxing song. The lyrics are just beautiful. Just like this lyric, "if a leaf as fallen, does the tree lie broken?" It has such magical and interesting lyrics and instruments. Relaxing song.
