Gabriel, Peter - No Way Out Lyrics




saw a group of people forming
round a figure lying down
and someone runs to make a phone call
and the man kneels on the ground
the man kneels on the ground
there's a tightening in my chest
i know that I'm drawn in
oh god let it not be - you

don't leave us
don't leave like this
don't leave me here again
i'm not quitting on you
no one else
you're not quitting on us
no running out

the colour in your shirt is darkening,
against the paleness of your skin
i remember how you held the goldfish
swimming around in a plastic bag
swimming around in a plastic bag

you held it up so high
in the bright lights of the fair
it slipped and fell
we looked everywhere

don't leave us (your eyes are bright, your blood is warm)
don't leave like this (your heart is strong, you're holding on)
don't leave me here again (i feel your pulse, i hold your hand)
i'm not quitting on you
there's no one else
you're not quitting on us
there's no way out
no way out

don't leave us
don't leave like this
don't leave me here again (i feel your pulse, i hold your hand)
i'm not quitting on you
there's no one else
you're not quitting on us
no running away - no way out

Gabriel, Peter No Way Out Comments
  1. Alex Mambulla

    Engraçado ele saiu da banda Gênesis para cantar solo, e acabou criando uma outra banda, não se pode aplicar a ele o título de cantor solo, na verdade ele criou uma nova banda só que sem nome de banda, apenas levando o seu nome .

  2. Jbird

    It claims he says don’t leave us, but it sounds like he says don’t leave rough...................drives me crazy, anyone else hear it?

    Jbird

    On the album version

  3. Serge Teplov

    Gabriel voice is magic

  4. tm502010

    What type of bass is Richard playing? Such a beautiful looking instrument...

    Scott McAra

    I'm not sure who you are calling Richard as the bassist's name is Tony Levin. I'm not sure which bass he's playing.

    so many tracks peter has done which touch life. all of our lives in one way or another.  it is important music like this gets listened too. Gabriel is one of the rare breed of musicians that feel every single note and can reach out through his music. legendary

  14. Moira Keenan

    Powerful!

  15. Rick Green

    Thank God for Visual Lyrics. Thank God for Peter Gabriel. A musical genius.

  16. C Goode

    .. I love how the female vocalist could not seem any more apathetic. Seriously, watch her expression.

    The percussionist is far more involved than she is.

    Rick Green

    That female vocalist is his amazing daughter Melanie Gabriel.

    Tony Hill

    That's Melanie, Peter's daughter!

    Scott McAra

    I'm not seeing it the way you see it. She just seems focused on her father's vocal queues.

  17. genesis forever

    I'm sure this song is about his relationship with his then girl freind now wife Meabh, just lesson to the words.  When you die your dead no comming back.  I think she didn't trust him and had some personal probles as well, (maybe).

    j.d. thompson

    It's about a father having a heart attack at a carnival with his family there

  18. Nella Crosiglia

    arcangelo!

  19. Lyktwz

    Peter Gabriel and the Bald Men Band.

    Brian J. Carnevale

    +Crenshawzfinest So true. What astounds me is how crisp and sharp he still sounds, sounds like he did 30 years ago. Fantastic stuff.

    Brian J. Carnevale

    wish he put out more material.

    genesis forever

    Well Peter did put out I'm A mazing and The Veil both SUCK!!!! it takes him so long to put out he forgets what music should sound like, not that TECHNO GARBAGE!!!  sound like he just flips a switch!!!

  22. genesis forever

    this song is graet but it sounds like someone  trapped in a relationship and can't get out.

    SwooshGangJoe

    +genesis forever It's about death. Not a realtionship.

    genesis forever

    +Crenshawzfinest I know but read between the lines. Thats what I THINK.

    progtoeternity

    The lost relationship between your biology and your soul, taking shape as there is no coming back possible
