twilight alehouse lyrics – genesis

1971. released as b-side of “i know what i like” single, 1974.

is it really true what they’re saying
are you really sure there’s n*body come for me
when i’m walking home there is no-one
once there was a house, full of laughter – so warm
trying to pretend there is someone
someone who will care when i need it

i will now receive my comfort, conjured by the magic power of wine
just a drink, i’ll get that drink, and i’m feeling good
just a drink, i’ll get that drink, and i’m feeling fine
just a drink to take my sorrow
just a drink and you can blast tomorrow
just a drink to make me feel like a man again
now i’m down

when i walk outside, there is nowhere
children follow me, with their laughter – so cold…
casting just a glance at the churchyard
casting just a glance, at my painted female friend.

now i’m on my way, i am falling
got to find some ‘elp, ooh i will need that now

so i will receive my comfort, conjured by the magic power of wine
just a drink, i’ll get that drink, and i’m feeling good
just a drink, i’ll get that drink, and i’m feeling fine
just a drink to take my sorrow
just a drink and you can blast tomorrow
just a drink to make me feel like a man again
now i’m down…

i will now receive my comfort, conjured by the magic power of wine
just a drink, i’ll get that drink, and i’m feeling good
just a drink, i’ll get that drink, and i’m feeling fine
just a drink to take my sorrow
just a drink and you can blast tomorrow, now…
