The Lady Lies Lyrics - Genesis

Review The Song (3)



The man steps out in the moonlight
At the sound of a scream from below.
He thinks he is a warrior
So he picks up his sword and goes.

From the mouth of the monster
He rescues the maiden fair.
But we know she's a demon
Come to lure him to demon's lair.

Through restless foliage and tall trees he leads
To a house in a clearing, a place in her fear she calls home.

"Come with me, I need you,
I fear the dark and I live all alone.
I'll give you wine and food too
And something special after if you like."

And though his body bids him
To enter in with her,
sponsored links
There was something in her manner
That his mind could not ignore.

Also it is whispered
In the kingdom far and wide,
To beware a little cottage
In the forest in a glade.

For who knows what magic takes place in his world?
So he just thanks her kindly preparing to go on his way.

"Come with me, I need you,
I fear the dark and I live all alone.
I'll give you wine and food too
And something special after if you like.

Come to my garden,
Taste the fruits and the spices of love.
You can't resist me,
I'm the kind that your dreams tell you of."

"So glad you could make it
We had everything arranged.
So glad you saw fit to pay a call."

Some men never listen,
And others never learn,
But why this man did as he did
Only he will ever know.

He knew he was walking
Into a waiting trap,
Neatly set up for him
With a bait so richly wrapped.

So he went inside there to take on what he found
But he never escaped them, for who can escape what he desires?

"Come with me, I need you,
I fear the dark and I live all alone.
I'll give you wine and food too
And something special after if you like."

ANother great story | Reviewer: Wile E Coyote | 8/20/13

You can see that even with the departure of the great Peter Gabriel, they still can write awesome stories, one of which can be seen as truth when a man leves his wife for an affair with another woman even though he knows its wrong he does it anyway...wow, pretty awesome indeed

Fantastic prog song | Reviewer: Diogo | 9/20/09

This song is simply awesome! The lyrics and story itself are amazing.

Another highlight in this fantastic prog rock epic is Collins drum work, which is simply amazing, joining extreme creativity and virtuosity

Regards

One of my Vintage Classic favorites! | Reviewer: DareDelSol | 5/21/07

I'm glad I finally took the time to look up some words I was not sure of all this time... Long live Genesis! The music is fast, loud and great live on "Live At The Uptown (Chicago)" 1978. This would make an awesome video - I can envision the scenes come to life like "With a bait so richly wrapped"... can't you just see that girl?
