Peter Gabriel

English musician who first came to fame as the lead vocalist of the progressive rock group Genesis.
Peter Gabriel
Red rain is coming down.
Red rain.
Red rain is pouring down,
Pouring down all over me.
Gabriel quotes
Changing your ways, changing those surrounding you.
Changing your ways, more than any man can do.
Open your heart, show him the anger and pain, so you heal.
Maybe he's looking for his womanly side, let him feel.
In your eyes,
The light, the heat.
In your eyes,
I am complete.
In your eyes,
I see the doorway to a thousand churches.
In your eyes,
The resolution of all the fruitless searches.

Gabriel Peter quotes
This old familiar craving.
I've been here before, this way of behaving.
Don't know who the hell I'm saving anymore.
Let it pass, let it go, let it leave.
From the deepest place I grieve.
This time I believe
And I let go...
Gabriel Peter
In the blood of Eden,
Lie the woman and the man.
With the man in the woman,
And the woman in the man.
Peter Gabriel quotes
Waiting your time, dreaming of a better life.
Waiting your time, you're more than just a wife.
You don't want to do what your mother has done,
She has done.
This is your life, this new life has begun.
It's your day - a woman's day.
It's your day - a woman's day.
Peter Gabriel
In the big house,
Where the sun lives,
With the walls so white and blue.
In the red soil,
All the green grows.
And the winds blow across your face.
They blow across your heart.
It's the time of the turning and there's something stirring outside.
It's the time of turning and we'd better learn to say our goodbyes.
Gabriel Peter quotes
The time I like is the rush hour, cos I like the rush
The pushing of the people I like it all so much
Such a mass of motion do not know where it goes
I move with the movement and... I have the touch.
It's the time of turning and there's something stirring outside.
It's the time of turning and the old world's falling.
Nothing you can do can stop the next emerging.
Time of the turning and we'd better learn to say our goodbyes.
Gabriel Peter
There's nothing to gain when there's nothing to be lost.
There's nothing to gain if you stay behind and count the cost.
Make the decision that you can be who you can be,
You can be.
Tasting the fruit come to the Liberty Tree.
Peter Gabriel
And in this moment, I need to be needed.
With this darkness all around me, I like to be liked.
In this emptiness and fear, I want to be wanted.
'Cause I love to be loved.
I love to be loved.
I love to be loved.
Yes, I love to be loved.

Peter Gabriel quotes
Looking down on empty streets, all she can see
Are the dreams all made solid
Are the dreams all made real.
Peter Gabriel
If we can stand up
When all else falls down,
We'll last through the winter.
We'll last through the storms.
We'll last through the north winds
That bring down the ice and snow.
We'll last through the long nights
Till the green field's growing again.
Growing again.
Gabriel quotes
Love I get so lost, sometimes.
Days pass and this emptiness fills my heart.
When I want to run away,
I drive off in my car.
But whichever way I go,
come back to the place you are.
Gabriel Peter
Shock the monkey to life.
Gabriel Peter quotes
I'm scared of swimming in the sea,
Dark shapes moving under me.
Every fear I swallow makes me small.
Inconsequential things occur,
Alarms are triggered,
Memories stir.
It's not the way it has to be.
Peter Gabriel
D.I.Y., D.I.Y., D.I.Y., D.I.Y.
Don't tell me what I will do, 'cos I won't.
Don't tell me to believe in you, 'cos I don't.
Be on your guard, better hostile and hard, don't risk affection;
Like flesh to the bone in the no-go zone,
You're still looking for the Resurrection.
Come up to me with your "What did you say?"
And I'll tell you, straight in the eye:
D.I.Y., D.I.Y.
Peter Gabriel quotes
Cover me, when I sleep
Cover me, when I breathe
You throw your pearls before the swine
Make the monkey blind
Cover me, darling please.
Monkey, monkey, monkey.
Don't you know you're going to shock the monkey?
Peter Gabriel
And the eyes of the world are
watching now.
Gabriel Peter
In this proud land we grew up strong;
We were wanted all along.
I was taught to fight, taught to win;
I never thought I could fail.
