As Sure As Eggs Is Eggs (Aching Men's Feet)

On this date (5/18) in 1975, Peter Gabriel left Genesis to pursue a solo career. Drummer Phil Collins replaces Gabriel as lead singer for the group. Although both Gabriel and Genesis ended up more successful, it was mourned by many fans, like me.

And it's hey babe, with your guardian eyes so blue,
Hey my baby, don't you know our love is true,
I've been so far from here, Far from your loving arms,
Now I'm back again, and babe it's gonna work out fine...
Can't you feel our souls ignite
Shedding ever changing colours, in the darkness of the fadingnight,
Like the river joins the ocean, as the germ in a seed grows
We have finally been freed to get back home.

What, Phil Collins can't match the musical genius of one Peter Gabriel? Is that what you think?! You're right. Gabriel is awesome.
