Genesis — Undertow. Read More Edit Wiki. The curtains are drawn Now the fire warms the room Meanwhile outside Wind from the north-east chills the air It will soon be snowing out there And some there are Cold, they prepare for a sleepless night Maybe this will be their last fight But we're safe in each other's embrace All fears go as I look on your face Better think awhile Or I may never think again If this were the last day of your life, m friend Tell me, what do you think you would do then?
Stand up to the blow that fate has struck upon you Make the most of all you still have coming to you Lay down on the ground and let the tears run from you Crying to the grass and trees and heaven finally on your knees Let me live again, let life come find me wanting Spring must strike again against the shield of winter Let me feel once more the arms of love surround me Telling me the danger's past, I need not fear the icy blast again Laughter and music and perfume linger here And there, and there Wine flows from flask to glass and mouth As it soothes, confusing our doubts And soon we feel Why do a single thing today There's tomorrow sure as I'm here So the days they turn into years And, still no tomorrow appears Better think awhile, Undertow song meanings.
Add your thoughts 7 Comments. General Comment I think this is one of the most moving songs ever! The music is just brilliant. As for the lyrics, I actually find them very uplifting: Telling us that everyday we should remind ourselves that life is a treasure and therefore we have to seize the day instead of waiting for a tomorrow that never appears.
The chorus with the description of how we'd react to our last day is just beautiful. I don't think the person in the song is really ill or going to die.
Undertow - Genesis - …And Then There Were Three… my mind, it seems more like someone - averagely happy, averagely wealthy - is suddenly struck by the insight that life is precious. In the first stanza, the thought of other poor people not surviving the night starts him thinking about "the last day". In La Mentira - Lucho Gatica - Por Siempre. second stanza, he realises that a day spent with drinking wine and doing nothing is a wasted day Undertow - Genesis - …And Then There Were Three… that he wouldn't do so if he knew his time left on earth was limited.

I'd like to memorize the chorus and use it frequently as a spell to give me and others extra energy and love and optimism and fortitude when fate blows those cold chilly nights into our lives. Have I made the most of the gifts I've been gifted with? Can't I Litanei (langsam) Piano - Alban Berg - Arnold Schoenberg · Anton Webern · Kammerorchester Der Jungen my heart wider to this sacred wondrous and terrifyingly surprising and mysterious universe, and Undertow - Genesis - …And Then There Were Three… the immensity of it bring me to my tearful knees?
Shall I live on, and on again, as the waves of shadow and light wash through my life, the summer fall winter spring of it all, picking me up one more time than it drops me, rebirthing me one more time than it kills me, waking me up one more time than it puts me to sleep?
Can I feel the arms of love around me, even if right now there are only memories and hopes and intuitions of unpresent arms? Can I feel love and loved anyway and finally give my heart trustingly to the Universe, and once and for all fall into foolish love with Life not because I'm sure that it won't break my heart, but rather because I'm sure that it will, again, over and over, and mend it one more time than it breaks it, helping me grow grow grow ever onward toward forever, or at least as long as i care to?
While deeply appreciative of the warm sweet breezes, in this ever-changing dancing universe, can I, as i think I must, withstand the icy blast again? Can I admit safety is nicer, bit not let my desire for it stifle my willingness to try new things and risk it all sometimes, can I risk it all now, knowing life becomes a crazy caged animal if I lose my sense of adventure. Can I refine my sense of adventure, crafting ingenious risks that pay off nicely if they go well, and teach meaningful lessons on how to do it better next time if things don't go well?

This includes the album in remixed stereo Undertow - Genesis - …And Then There Were Three… surround sound, and related video tracks. The only exception is the track "Say It's Alright Joe", which was not remixed because the band was unable to locate the multitrack recordings.
In an April review for Melody Makerreporter Chris Welch praised the album as "strong, confident" that is "as good as any they have made in the band's post-Gabriel years". Welch noted the songs have "a sense of purpose" and come with "a remarkably powerful sound", and picked "Ballad of Big" as his favourite track. The rest of the album is "a tapestry of imaginary landscapes filled with the struggling mythic heroes that Genesis has learned to depict so well".
He concluded that Genesis succeed at points on the album but thought many songs on it fail to go anywhere, "blending into one another like some sort of hip musak". The album, he Undertow - Genesis - …And Then There Were Three…has "hard, almost ominous" tracks like "Down and Out" and "softer, more melodic" ones like "Say It's Alright Joe", all of which create "a magical, mystical sound that sets them apart from the numerous similar but usually inferior European art-rock Undertow - Genesis - …And Then There Were Three….
He names Banks as the one of the trio most responsible for their sound with his "rich" arrangements complemented by Rutherford's restrained guitar work which is "more felt than heard" which worked well to his praise on "Burning Rope".
Walters, however, thought Collins's vocals has shortcomings that lacks expansion or breathtaking moments, though is a drummer who can still be melodic. Other Long Distance Runaround - Yes - Classic Yes were more critical of the album, including Village Voice critic Robert Christgau and Jon Pareleswho said that "without lead guitarist Steve Hackett, the band loses Undertow - Genesis - …And Then There Were Three… last remaining focal point; the rest is double-tracking.
Hence a sound as mushy as the dread Moody Blueswith fewer excuses. He also declared Rutherford's lead guitar playing as "unbearably clumsy" compared to Hackett but remains a "rare bassist" whose string guitar playing reminded the reviewer of Rutherford on Trespass and the surrounding period in the band's history.
Retrospective appraisals have also been mixed. Considine deemed it "a genuine pop breakthrough" that "does hone the playing so that there's less empty flash and wasted energy",  while MusicHound Rock said it "put Genesis on the radio with 'Follow You, Follow Me' but Undertow - Genesis - …And Then There Were Three… the meaty songcraft and ambitious arrangements of its predecessors".
Genesis embarked on the The group needed an additional touring member to cover all the material, but Rutherford only wanted to play lead guitar on the new songs from The successful applicant would have to play bass on the new material and Undertow - Genesis - …And Then There Were Three… Hackett's old lead parts.
Johnson suggested instead that they consider jazz-fusion guitarist Daryl Stuermerwho was already a Genesis fan. Collins later said the tour was "an end of an era" and thought the group did not need to play live as much in the future. All songs arranged and performed by Genesis. Genesis recorded two additional songs that were left off the album, and released as B-sides.
