Snowbound Lyrics - Genesis

Review The Song (3)



Lay your body down upon the midnight snow,
Feel the cold of winter in your hair
Here in a world of your own,
In a casing that's grown
To a children's delight
That arrived overnight.

And here they come to play their magic games
Carving names upon your frozen hand.
Here in a world of your own,
Like a sleeper whose eyes
Sees the pain with surprise
As it smothers your cries
They'll never never know.

Hey there's a Snowman
Hey, Hey what a Snowman
Pray for the Snowman

Ooh, Ooh what a Snowman
They say a snow year's a good year
Filled with the love of all who lie so deep.

Smiling faces tear your body to the ground
Covered red that only we can see.
Here in a ball that they made
From the snow on the ground,
See it rolling away
Wild eyes to the sky
They'll never, never know.

Hey there's a Snowman
Hey what a Snowman
Pray for the Snowman
Ooh, Ooh what a Snowman
They say a snow year's a good year
Filled with the love of all who lie so deep.

Hey there goes the Snowman
Hey,hey there what a Snowman
Hey there lies the Snowman
Hey he was a Snowman
They say a snow year's a good year
Filled with the love of all who lie so deep.

Hey,there goes the snowman
Hey,hey there what a snowman...

This is (to me) great example of the visual story telling ability of many of the earlier Genesis songs. It has a rather Grimm's feel to me, in that the story teller is describing a traveler who chooses a poor night to sleep outside and is encased by an unexpected winter snowstorm and subsequently dies during the night from exposure. The local children arrive in the morning to play, ("here they come to play their magic games") only to discover a "snowman" on their playground. What follows is something best left to the imagination ("Carve their names upon his frozen hand")('Here in a ball that they made/ From the snow on the ground,/ See it rolling away/ Wild eyes to the sky")(They'll never never know") also the line ("pray for the Snowman") infers that this was once a living person) or within the confines of a horror movie scriptwriter's mind. The score is gentle and soothing, but the story is anything but.

Snowbound | Reviewer: Gomez | 4/14/07

Hey all. It remains that Snowbound is probably the best Genesis song ever written. It paints a picture in your head every time it is heard. Folk down south are missing out (with no or minimal snow events). If you don't have it, "Then There Were Three..." is worth every penny of the couple of bucks you'll pay for it these days.

Long live the snowman! | Reviewer: Stolly | 4/28/05

What can i say - a song about the plight of oneself, the misty glazen eyes of all other men, death comes to all, of perpetual rebirth. What life the snowman? What life in whose eyes? Above all its a tribute to my father though he will never know it - it's a song i grew up with - one of his records (remember those big plastic discs) - and it's meaning evolves as i do. Long live the snowman!
