About Fading Lights

Fading Lights is the twelfth and final song on the album We Can't Dance by Genesis. The song was written by Tony Banks, Phil Collins, and Mike Rutherford, with lyrics by Tony Banks. It is the longest song on the album. The melody of the chorus' first line is reminiscent of that of their earlier track "Ripples" from A Trick of the Tail, and the song has a similar theme of relinquishing the past. The drum machine loop at the beginning of the song was sampled and used on the song "I Love You. .. I'll Kill You" by the musical project Enigma on their second album, The Cross of Changes (as they also sampled drums from the same Genesis album the song Dreaming While You Sleep for another song of the same album, The Eyes Of Truth.) The song was played live during the band's 1992 The Way We Walk tour. It also appears on their DVD The Way We Walk - Live in Concert.

Another time it might have been so different
If only we could do it all again
But now it's just another fading memory
Out of focus, though the outline still remains

Far away, away, fading distant lights
Leaving us all behind, lost in a changing world
And you know that these are the days of our lives remember

Like the story that we wish was never ending
We know sometime we must reach the final page
Still we carry on just pretending
That there'll always be another day to go

Far away, away, fading distant lights
Leaving us all behind, lost in a changing world
And you know that these are the days of our lives remember

Another chance hello, another goodbye
And so many things we'll never see again
Days of life that seemed so unimportant
Seem to matter and to count much later on

Far away, away, fading distant lights
Leaving us all behind, lost in a changing world
And you know that these are the days of our lives remember
