Ripples

This song is by Genesis and appears on the album A Trick of the Tail (1976) and on the compilation album Archive #2 1976-1992 (2000).

Bluegirls come in every size
some are wise and some otherwise
They've got pretty blue eyes
For an hour a man may change
For an hour her face looks strange
Looks strange, looks strange

Marching to the promised land
Where the honey flows and takes you by the hand
Pulls you down on your knees
While you're down a pool appears
The face in the water looks up
And she shakes her head as if to say
That it's the last time you'll look like today

Sail away, away
Ripples never come back
Gone to the other side
Sail away, away

The face that launched a thousand ships
Is sinking fast, that happens you know
The water gets below
Seems not very long ago
Lovelier she was than any that I know

Angels never know it's time
To close the book and gracefully decline
The song has found a tale
My, what a jealous pool is she
The face in the water looks up
And she shakes her head as if to say
That the bluegirls have all gone away

Sail away, away
Ripples never come back
Gone to the other side
Look into the pool
Ripples never come back
Dive to the bottom and go to the top to see where they have gone
Oh, they've gone to the other side
