Many Too Many Lyrics - Genesis

Review The Song (5)



Many too many have stood where I stand
Many more will stand here too,
I think what I find strange is the way you built me up
Then knocked me down again.

The part was fun but now it's over,
Why can't I just leave the stage?
Maybe that's because you securely locked me up
Then threw away the key.

Oh mama,
Please would you find the key.
Oh pretty mama,
Please won't you let me go free.
I thought I was lucky
I thought that I'd got it made.
How could I be so blind?

You said good-bye on a corner
sponsored links
That I thought led to the straight.
You set me on a firmly laid and simple course
Then removed the road.

Oh mama,
Please help me find my way.
Oh pretty mama,
Please lead me through the next day.
I thought I was lucky
Oh I thought that I'd got it made.
How could I be so blind? Oh no...

I love this song. This was one of my late brother's albums and I remember listneing to it when I was about five or six. I too have heard it many times. There are very few artists that can compose music like this anymore. The industry wants sure bets in pre-packaged forms. The outro is truly wonderful and makes me want to hear more. Tremendous feeling in the guitar solos. Helps me see those days like they were yesterday.

It seems that long since my world revolved around fabulous music like this. I always wondered who the mama is, although 'fame that you love but which will always control you' works fine. The fading outro still makes makes me well up.



good song | Reviewer: graham | 2/26/10

Known the song since my youth and never ever read the lyrics untill today. Im 52 years now. Brings back memeries of cornwall in about 77 i think drink drugs and crazy life style A surviver of thise times



How fame works | Reviewer: KD | 3/16/09

I have heard this song an endless number of times and I never really focused on any part of it except the chorus. This is one of the better songs about fame. It is personified as a woman who does not lead you anywhere ("How could I be so blind?").

This song should be mandatory at American Idol.
