Love
I get so lost sometimes
Days pass
And this emptiness fills my heart

When I want to run away
I drive off in my car
But whichever way I go
I come back to the place you are

All my instincts
They return
The grand façade
So soon will burn

Without a noise
Without my pride
I reach out from the inside

In your eyes
The light, the heat
In your eyes
I am complete
In your eyes
I see the doorway
To a thousand churches
In your eyes
The resolution
In your eyes
Of all the fruitless searches

Oh, I see the light and the heat
In your eyes
Oh, I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light
The heat I see in your eyes

Love
I don't like to see so much pain
So much wasted
And this moment keeps slipping away

I get so tired
Working so hard for our survival
I look to the time with you
To keep me awake and alive

And all my instincts
They return
And the grand façade
So soon will burn

Without a noise
Without my pride
I reach out from the inside

In your eyes, in your eyes
In your eyes, in your eyes

In your eyes
The light the heat
In your eyes
I am complete
In your eyes
I see the doorway
To a thousand churches
In your eyes
The resolution
In your eyes
Of all the fruitless searches

Oh, I see the light and the heat
In your eyes
Oh, I want to be that complete
I wanna touch the light
The heat I see in your eyes

In your eyes, in your eyes
In your eyes, in your eyes
In your eyes, in your eyes

What's with the Peter Gabriel obsession lately? 3-5 times a day is a bit much.

 
I think it's cool, assuming that your count is correct. One of the features of RP is the idiosyncratic approach to the music. Sometimes a theme flows through the selection, at other times who knows? But like many maybe most of us, he probably finds a particular musician more compelling, in some way, for a while, then moves on. The difference is that he has his own station.
Without a doubt the greatest version of this song. Heck, this is the greatest version of a lot of other songs, too. A showstopper.

This sir, is my favorite version ever, of this song .. when Youssou N'Dour's solo bit and the ambient echo hit .. I just get that feeling of "wow" from the start of the last word in the solo .. till you can't hear it echoing ..

It also take me back to one of the few live concerts I've been so lucky to have time and money to go see .. PG's UP! tour .. and then reminds me of Blind Boys of Alabama doing the opening for it, and how good that was too!

And for anyone that's never said it before.. Thank U 'atrocity' for having uploaded this.

If there's some obsession please let it run the course... I've heard some versions here at RP that never I knew and oh how I love.

The non live version gets a 10 :-)
Must have been a great show in Athens !{#Dance}
Gives me goosebumps! I never tire of this version. 
Manu Katché was the drummer ??
It was an magical song until they extended it (and performed it live in concert). Then it became even more magical.
 
Magical.
It was an okay song until they extended it. Then it became irritating. 
wow, recorded in 88, such a great song.  :) ...I remember when, with my own ears n eyes; I experienced his BLOOD tour... front row...  Montreal...  will never slip away in my mind...  
  incredible performance.. {#Cheers}

Did I hear that was taken from a Japanese Video disc? (I was cleaning the kitchen at the time!) If so, I suspect this was the original mix done in the late 80s. Bowers & Wilkins Society Of Sound released a remastered version in 24 bit FLAC a few years ago, and sounds much better to my ears. Have a look here:

The new mix is also available on a Blu-ray and doesn't have that unfortunate little speed glitch in the middle like this one does. (Not a copying error, it really is that way on the disc.)
