Genesis – Dusk lyrics
See my hand is moving
Touching all that's real
And once it stroked loves body
Now it claws the past.

The scent of a flower,
The colours of the morning,
Friends to believe in,
Tears soon forgotten,
See how the rain drives away, another day.

If a leaf as fallen
Does the tree lie broken?
And if we draw some water
Does the well run dry?

The sigh of a mother,
The screaming of lovers,
Like two angry tigers,
They tear at each other,
See how for him lifetimes fears disappear.

Once jesus suffered,
Heaven could not see him.
And now my ship is sinking,
The captain stands alone.

A pawn on a chessboard,
A false move by God will now destroy me,
But wait, on the horizon,
A new dawn seems to be rising,
Never to recall this passerby, born to die.

    To me this song is about lost love. Or unrequited love. And the gist is that it really is not an end all be all; hence the line "if a leaf has fallen, does the tree lie broken?" of course not. So it is with being in love. Sure that person may not have loved you in return, but it's not the end. Even tho it may feel like the end: "a pawn on the chessboard..."
