No Son Of Mine Lyrics - Genesis

Review The Song (8)



Well the key to my survival
was never in much doubt
the question was how I could keep sane
trying to find a way out

Things were never easy for me
peace of mind was hard to find
and I needed a place, where I could hide
somewhere, I could call mine

I didn't think much about it
til it started happening all the time
soon I was living with the fear everyday
of what might happen that night

I couldn't stand to hear the
crying of my mother and I remember when
i swore that,
that would be the
sponsored links
Last they'd see of me
And I never went home again

they say that time is a healer
and now my wounds are not the same
I rang that bell with my heart in my mouth
I had to hear what he'd say

He sat me down to talk to me
he looked me straight in the eyes

he said:

You're no son, you're no son of mine
No you're no son, you're no son of mine
You ou walked out, you left us behind
and you're no son, no son of mine

oh, his words how they hurt me, I'll never forget it
and as the time, it went by, I lived to regret it

You're no son, you're no son of mine
but where should I go,
and what should I do
you're no son, you're no son of mine
but I came here for help, oh I came here for you

Well the years they passed so slowly
I thought about him everyday
what would I do, if we passed on the street
would I keep running away

in and out of hiding places
soon I'd have to face the facts
we'd have to sit, down and talk it over
and that would mean going back

they say that time is a healer
and now my wounds are not the same
I rang that bell with my heart in my mouth
I had to hear what he'd say

He sat me down to talk to me
he looked me straight in the eyes

he said:

You're no son, you're no son of mine
You're no son, you're no son of mine
When you walked out, you left us behind
and you're no son, you're no son of mine

oh, his words how they hurt me, I'll never forget it
and as the time, it went by, I lived to regret it

You're no son, you're no son of mine
But where should I go and what should I do
You're no son, you're no son of mine
But I came here for help, oh I was looking for you
You're no son, you're no son of mine - oh
You're no son - hi yeah, hi yeah, hi yeah, hi yeah
You're no son, you're no son of mine - oh-oh, oh-oh... (fades out)

This song means something to us as fathers | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/11/12

This is my father. It is sad that this is so many fathers out there. If you are reading this then maybe you had one or perhaps you are/were one of them. Our job as men is to break that chain, to be the agent of change for our sons. If we make an effort to make that change we win in the end. Our loss need only to be the last in the chain. Please work on yourselves so our children don't have to. Love your sons for who and what they are. We only get the one chance to make that boy a man. Make him a good one.

Empathize Completely | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/28/11

Having had a similar dad when I grew up, I believe one of the band members most likely were talking about their own fathers. It most likely sounds like Mike Rutherford's late dad. Since branching off and forming Mike and the Mechanics, we get a very moving song co-written by him entitled "The Living Years". Of course Phil Collins' voice just seems to give that much more credibility to such an awesome song. God bless you for taking the time to read my post, and always remember that life is too short to be unhappy! 24This [is] the day [which] the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalms 118:24

Powerful | Reviewer: DM | 1/11/10

I've always liked this song. It came out my frosh year in h.s. It's meaning haunts me long after I hear it and always makes me sad. Any abuse is hard to hear about and this song really gets to me.
Beautiful lyrics.

The best of the later years | Reviewer: Blackbird | 12/23/07

I first came to know Genesis through my father, who's a big fan of them. I got the taste of it and I became a Genesis fan. They're not my favorite band, but I got a special love for them. This song is special because it's the only one I truly love out off their latest works.

I personally enjoy the most of their first albuns, with Peter Gabriel, and the first 2 without him, when Steve Hackett was still in the band. I don't like very much of their latest works, their pop phase, when Phil became the main songwriter, but it's still ok.

I would love to go to a concert of their upcoming tour, but they're not comming to my country... Well, at least Peter and Steve didn't reunited with Phil, Tony and Mike, cause if they did I would be ever sadder...

Best song EVER! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/15/07
