Genesis - Uncertain Weather Lyrics




A day of uncertain weather
Captured in a frame forever
A face in a faded photograph

He must have had a life
Maybe with a family
People who meant everything to him

A sinner, a saint, a soldier
Caught up in a war he never
Had a chance to start or build a life

All gone long ago
Leaving no trace
Disappearing like smoke in the wind
To become just a face without a name
Leaving no trace
Disappearing like smoke in the wind

Hopes and fears important plans
Forgotten memories
Footsteps fading in the sand, ooh
Schemes and dreams small and grand
Nothing left to see
Footsteps fading in the sand, ooh

Someone who cast a shadow
Maybe just a lazy man
Doesn't make much difference now it's true

A day of uncertain weather
Captured in a frame forever
A face in a faded photograph

All gone long ago
Leaving no trace
Disappearing like smoke in the wind
To become just a face without a name
One more to add to the total
Of those never heard of again

Yes he's gone
Just a face without a name
Leaving no trace
Disappearing like smoke in the wind
All gone
Just a face without a name
Leaving no trace
Disappearing like smoke in the wind...

Genesis Uncertain Weather Comments
  1. Anastasia Ozerova

    2:26 - 2:49 sounds like a recycled Taken In by Mike & The Mechanics. Sneaky

  2. SEHAIKUAN

    Tomek Beksiński w jednej ze swoich autorskich audycji powiedział że warto mieć ten album choćby tylko dla tego jednego utworu.


    pozdrawiam S.

  3. Chen Samurai

    Pezzo fantastico benchè sottovalutato come, peraltro, tutto l'album. Ho letto recensioni impietose sull'intero album. Mi domando se, ai giorni nostri, abituati a tutta la merda che circola, siamo ancora in grado di riconoscere la "qualità" quando la incontriamo. Tutto qui.

  4. Mark Coast

    If Collins had sung this one instead of Ray Wilson it would have been a hit. In fact, I think you can apply this to the whole album.

  5. luis marcelo inostroza bidart

    Melodically brilliant....Tony, go on......

  6. Francisco Melo. Melo.

    Muito sommm

  7. Alwan Tamalus

    May be the best song of Genesis (Tony banks). Great music and great lyrics.

  8. Amit Raam

    Genesis, reduced to writing songs where one waits for the hook ("all gone" etc). a good hook, good chord progression on the chorus, and yet..

    I remember the talk in the forums at the time. "no Phil Collins to drag them to ballad land!" "they say the songs will be long, dark".
    As if length was the issue. or darkness. I'm not talking getting another "TOTT", (what's dark there?). I'd settle even for something comparable to the power and muilti-idea of "Domino".
    (just my 2c)

  9. TheWatcherBis

    1 person's ability to enjoy quality songs has gone long ago disappearing like smoke in the wind.

    Great album,   listen my home studio  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vlQ0IYde_14&t=108s

  11. Hilmar Türkowsky

    Brilliant song from an underrated album. Genesis reminded all the old fans of their early years with Peter Gabriel. This song nearly made me cry.

  12. Christian Ostfeld

    Brillant and pure Genesis song.

  13. Jose Gregorio Yanes Seijas

    Underrated album, the last Genesis album now in 2017 celebrating 20 years of its releasing. This song is one of my very fave from "Calling all stations". A fantastic piece of art.

    Michael Kobylatski

    That is my pain... al l ready 20 years, because, when I hold in my hands Calllin all Stations I understood, that at last! They founded nod just force to go out of influence of good drummer but chip musician and show man, but also to find I will say brilliant replacement to Peter and a very good drummers (not P.C. class, off cource) But most important think, that Guys came back to the same ideas of music which their talent's belongs to! But!

    sACCboy

    imo this album had the potential to reach the wind and wuthering chilling instrumentals! :DDD

  14. George McKenna

    Ray Wilson actually bears a resemblance to Steven Wilson in this image. And the music isn't hugely dissimilar, particularly the "footsteps fading in the sand" section. Great, underrated song!
