Genesis – It's Yourself lyrics

Released as b-side of singles ripples, 1976 and your own special way, 1977.

Lyrics to the demo version, beloved summer, in brackets.

Stepping out the back way
Hoping nobody sees
Feeling can be easy
Think how I feel

What will (can) you say?
What will you do?
Why cant you see?
Its yourself I love

(dont you know Im not asking
You must have made up your mind
Is it worth the pain youre causing
To those youre leaving behind

What will you say?
What will you do?
Why cant you see?
Its yourself I love)

Dont you know Id like some answers
You could give me a call
I hardly know the reason
And I really feel no good at all

Where will you go?
Where will you be?
Where can I try?
Its yourself I love
