(From Miami Vice Episode, « Phil the Shill »)

Life is a Rat Race
Chasing easy money

Life is a Rat Race
Chasing your tail

Life is a Rat Race
All animals could have it,
Running around and never fail

Easy money’s gonna come your way, maybe
Easy money’s gonna break your heart

Life is a Rat Race
Chasing easy money

Life is a Rat Race
Chasing your tail

(Released as bonus track from the Dance Into The Light Sessions)

It can be in the way you walk
If you don’t know where you’re going to
It’s in the way that you make love to your lady friend
Some people can just sit still
You can tell that they got it
And even if you can’t dance
You can smile while you pretend

Oh yeah, yeah
Look around
It’s everywhere
Oh yeah, yeah
You’ll find
It’s everywhere

It can be in the way you wear your clothes
When you’re going out the night
It can be in the way that you tip that hat
To a passer-by
It can be in the way that you hold someone’s hand, so tight
And it can be in the way that you kiss a long lost friend Goodbye

Oh yeah, yeah
Look around
It’s everywhere
You can almost touch it
Oh yeah, yeah
You’ll find
It’s everywhere

I just remember
It’s not how smooth you move
It’s what you can’t see
That touches somebody’s heart

Just reach out
It’s everywhere

Reach out and touch it

Oh yeah
It’s everywhere, everywhere, everywhere, everywhere

Listen

It can be in the way you that put your arm
Around someone and give them some comfort
It can be in the thing you say
To show you care
It can be in the way that you talk
To your loved one on the telephone
And it can be in the way you run your fingers through your head

Oh yeah, yeah
Look around
It’s everywhere
So strong you can almost touch it
Oh yeah, yeah
You’ll find
It’s everywhere

Check it out people
You’ll know
It’s everywhere
Ain’t no mystery
You can find it
If you’re looking
You know
It’s everywhere

Remember
It’s what you can’t see
that touches somebody’s heart

Just reach out
It’s everywhere

Yeah, yeah,
It’s everywhere, everywhere, everywhere, everywhere
It’s everywhere

Just catch the feeling people
You know
It’s everywhere

Reach out and touch it
Reach out and touch it
It’s everywhere

Yeah, yeah
It’s everywhere, everywhere, everywhere, everywhere

Lying awake
I look out my window
Wondering to myself
If this madness will ever seize
Oh but I see a light
I see her crack of hope
And I close my eyes

They can’t tear this love apart
Though they try
Should we believe in the things they say ?
Oh but how would they know ?

‘Cos in another time
Another place
It might have been so different

Oh we set aside the world
We’ll laugh
We’ll show them all
If we can float across the stream
Just smile and float across the stream
We’ll see it all pass us by

You know what ?
Oh they don’t know
‘Cos in another time
In another time another place
It might have been so different
Oh but here we are
And here we’ll stay
We’ll set aside the world

We can float across the steam
We can float across the stream
Find a path we want
I know we will
I know we will
Find a path we want
Reach across the hill
And reach across the hill
We gonna go
Believe me, we gonna go
We gonna go
We gonna make it
We gonna make it
‘Cos nothing can stop us now
No, no, nothing can stop us now
We’re gonna make it
Yes, we’re gonna make it, girl
Because nothing can come between us
Not now, nothing can come between us
They try so hard
We can do it
We can do it
We can do it if we want it
We can do it girl
Oh we can do it
We’re gonna cross the street
Find a path for you all

Lying awake
I look out of my window
Wondering to myself
Will this madness ever seize
Oh but I see a light
I see her carck of hope
And I close my eyes
I close my eyes
Nothing can come between us now
We close our eyes
Close our eyes

You’ve been in love that little bit too long
You’ve been in love and I think that you know
You’ve been in love it’s time to move on
You’ve been in love and it’s starting to show

She’s getting to used to your face, getting too used to your smile
She’s saying the same things every morning before you leave her
You’d better run, find out what’s going through her mind
You’d better look out, cos he’s not far behind
You’ve been in love that little bit too long
You’ve been in love and I think that you know
You’ve been in love it’s time to move on
You’ve been in love and it’s starting to show

Suddenly she’s trying to please you, you start to think she’s acting strange
And after all these years she wears make-up in the morning
You’d better run, find out what’s going through her mind
You’d better look out, cos he’s not far behind

Did you really believe she’s doing it all for you?
Oh, can’t you see, there’s somebody else
You never showed it, you should have known it

You’ve been in love, yeah you’ve been in love
You’ve been in love, yeah you’ve been in love

Going round singing all those love songs, songs you haven’t heard for years
You’re gonna have to ask her why she’s so happy
You’d better run, find out what’s going through her mind.
But it may be too late, and I know why

You’ve been in love that little bit too long
You’ve been in love and I think that you know
You’ve been in love it’s time to move on
You’ve been in love and it’s starting to show
You’ve been in love that little bit too long
You’ve been in love, I think that you know
You’ve been in love it’s time to move on
You’ve been in love and it’s starting to show
To show, show, you’ve been in love, oh oh

(I’ve got blisters on my fingers!)

If you see the light on in the window of my room
I’ll be looking out though the shades are drawn
If you should hear someone quietly calling out for your hair
Don’t be alarmed it might just be me

Take me with you, take me there
I’ll go with you anywhere
Show me all the things you know
Are you with me, are you there
I’ll be with you everywhere
Show me all the things you know, you know, you know, you know

The sun always seems to shine on the other side of the mountain
The water is clearer on the other side of the hill
All that water comes to me, ooh as I lay down
Where I am is where I should be

Take me with you, take me there
I’ll go with you anywhere
Show me all the things you know – oh
Are you with me, are you there
I’ll be with you everywhere
Show me all the things you know

I’m holding them close to me
All those things I learned
But there’s no questions and answers
So we watch the candle burn, on and on

So the candle burns all night, burns so bright until morning
When I wake I find myself alone
So if you see me – are you here? – hear someone cry, calling out
Rescue me and take me home – take me home

Take me with you, take me there
I’ll go with you anywhere
Show me all the things you know – you know
Take me with you, take me with you
Take me with you, take me with you
Show me all the things you know
Please show me

Please take me, show me
Just take me, show me…

They come from miles around just to hear him play
He’s on the same street corner almost every day
And there’s always a crowd wherever he goes
And when he blows his horn, well everybody knows

I only wanna see him play

Well I’ve been waiting so long
I’ve been waiting so patiently
Out of the blue you call
You’re leaving him to be with me now

Now maybe I’m right, or maybe I’m wrong
Oh, I gotta know now
I’ll take what you got, so you’d better hold on
You’d better believe it

Cos that’s how I feel when I’m in your arms
That’s how I feel when I’m with you
You make me feel like never before
That’s how I feel when I’m with you

He doesn’t treat you good
He doesn’t say the things that I say
So when he turns around
You’re gonna stab him in the back and then walk away

Now maybe I’m right, or maybe I’m wrong
Oh, I gotta know now
I’ll take what you got, so you’d better hold on
You’d better believe it

Cos that’s how I feel when I’m in your arms
That’s how I feel when I’m with you
You make me feel like never before
That’s how I feel when I’m with you

You’ve been away too long
And now you’re coming home
But I won’t believe it until
I’m holding you tight, tight, tight tonight

Now maybe I’m right, or maybe I’m wrong
Oh, I gotta know now
I’ll take what you got, so you’d better hold on
You’d better believe it

Cos that’s how I feel when I’m in your arms
That’s how I feel when I’m with you
You make me feel like never before
That’s how I feel when I’m with you

That’s how I feel when I’m in your arms
(That’s how I feel when I’m with you) ooh, yeah
That’s how I feel when I’m in your arms
That’s how I feel when I’m with you
That’s how I feel when I’m with you

With a young man, with his heart on his sleeve
Had the body of a man, and a trust of a child
He never meant to hurt anybody
But he broke some hearts along the way

Ooh, it’s all over
Ooh, it’s all done
Ooh, it’s all over
Or, has it just begun?

All that he spoke came right from his heart
Though some had been hurt by the things he had said
Go walking in the long grass to find his peace
Sometimes it’d grow so tall he’d lose his way

Ooh, now it’s all over
Ooh, it’s all done
Ooh, it’s all over
Or, has it just begun?

Ooh, it’s all over
Ooh, it’s all done
Ooh, it’s all over
Or, has it just begun?

(Released as B-side of « One More Night » single, 1985)

I look out the window every day, I see the world go by
Watching I sit and wait for you
Just hoping you’ll catch my eye
You see me stare but I don’t care
I like the way you smile
One day I’ll get to talk to you
Ooh, right now well I’m too shy

But in my world of make believe
You’re the one what I need, oh, oh…

I could imagine me with you
But it’s an impossibility
I’d love to try to realise, I gotta deal with reality
But if you turn my way, I’d look away, ooh even face-to-face
And deep inside me, inside my mind
Someone else is trying to take my place

But in my world of make believe
You’re the one what I need, oh, oh…
Oh, come with me, I’ll show you everything
Come with me, ooh
Come with me, I’ll show you everything
It could be, come along with me and let me take you there, oh, oh…

I look out the window every day, I see the world go by
Watching I sit and wait for you
Ooh, just hoping that you’ll walk by
But if you turn my way, I’d look away, ooh even face-to-face
And deep inside, ooh in my mind
Someone else is trying to take my place

In my world of make believe
You’re the one what I need, oh, oh…

Come with me, ooh
Come with me, I’ll show you everything
It could be, come along with me and let me take you there, oh, oh…

All of my life, come with me, come with me, come with me…
All of my life…
I like the way you smile
All of my life…

(Released as B-side of « It’s in Your Eyes » single, 1996)

I don’t want to see you go
There’s too much to say.

But it’s gone on for too long
I know how much it hurts to hear
You show it and I know it
So there’s no reason for the tears.

I don’t want to see you go
Don’t want to see you cry.

‘Cos I’ve been there and I know it
How much it hurts being left behind
If you hold on, just be strong
There’ll come a time.

All things will come to pass, you know
All things will come around

I see your bags are packed
I guess that means you won’t be back
There’s nothing left could keep me chained
To get you, bring you back again.

If you hold on, won’t be long
We’ll find our time and place once more
Just hold tight, it’s alright
We’ve been here before.

All things will come to pass, you know
All things will come around.

But if you don’t want to stay, say goodbye
My number’s on your wall
‘Cos I’ve been there and I’ve seen it
It’s there beside those other guys
So keep it, you may need it
There’s no more reason for the lies.

(Phil Collins demo version released as B-side of
« We Wait And We Wonder » single, 1994)

Well it was one of those great stories
that you can’t put down at night
the hero knew what he had to do
and he wasn’t afraid to fight
the villain goes to jail, while the hero goes free
I wish it were that simple for me.

And the reason that she loved him
was the reason I loved him too
and he never wondered what was right or wrong
he just knew – he just knew.

Shadows and shape mixed together at dawn
but by time you catch them simplicity’s gone
and so we sort through the pieces
my friends and I
searching through the darkness to find
the breaks in the sky.

And the reason that she loved him
was the reason I loved him too
and he never wondered what was right or wrong
he just knew – he just knew.

And we wonder, yes we wonder
how do you make sense of this
when the hero kills the maiden
with his kiss – with his kiss.

Well it was one of those great stories
that you can’t put down at night
the hero knew what he had to do
and he wasn’t afraid to fight
the villain goes to jail, while the hero goes free
I wish it were that simple for me
– if it were that simple for me.

When I saw him last
he had that look in his eyes
I said, « Do you need to talk? »
he said, « No. »
So I called him up, asked him again and I waited a while –
he began to speak, then he started to cry

You know some things are best left unspoken
and some things just never work out
and sometimes, seems you try and you try and whatever you do
There’s a fix that you’re in, and you just can’t get out
he said, « I need your help, I need it now
Give me the strength to go on »

Though I didn’t know what
I knew that something was wrong
but he still had his pride
he’d tell me in time
Well this feeling inside
kept eating at me
I was losing a friend, and I had to know why

When I heard the voice on the phone, I knew it was bad news
so I rushed to be by his side
and we said goodbye for the last time
I gently hugged him, and kissed him goodbye
he whispered, « I need your help, I need it now
Give me the strength to go on. »

We were always laughing
I just remember laughing, mama
We were always laughing

Oh I need your help, I need it now
Give me the strength to go on

Though as time goes by, and it all becomes clear
we can see the deceit, we see the lies
So I asked myself, over and over, and over again
What did they know? What did they hide?
Fools, leading the innocent blindly
Fools, turning away

And I know that
when I think of my friend with that look in his eyes
and if they told the truth, he might be here today
I need your help, I need it now
Just give me the strength to go on, on

I remember the laughing
We were always laughing

Oh no – it’s just strength we need now
Just the strength to go on…

Just set your sight high, look
’em right in the eye and take it
And make a big big big noise.
Don`t ask why
Just take it wise and making it
Make that a big big big big noise.

You can feel it in the air
Feel it everywhere
There`s a spirit moving
At just look, it`s all around you
Just take a look around you people stars ??? to loose it
Cos if you wanted you gotta go get it
Just to listen up
if there`s something that you need
You better believe

Just set your sight high, look
’em right in the eye and take it
And make a big big big noise.
Don`t ask why
Just take it wise and making it
Make that a big big big big noise.

Better make your play
Don`t let her thing like right or wrong, get it
Cos there`s nothing to it if you just if you reach out and do it, it`ll be ok
Just catch yourself a piece of the action
Just to listen up
if there`s something that you need
You better believe

Just set your sight high, look
’em right in the eye and take it
And make a big big big noise.
Don`t ask why
Just take it wise and making it
Make that a big big big big noise.

Cos if you wanted you gotta go get it
Just to listen up

(Live from both the « …But Seriously » tour and the Phil Collins Big Band)

Dreams will all come true
Being here with you
And time will fly
Caring each day more
Than the day before
Till spring rolls by
And when the springtime has gone
Will my love linger on

‘Cause I’ll be loving you
Always
With a love that’s true
Always
When the things that you plan
Need a helping hand
I will understand
Always, always

Days may not be fair
Always
But that’s when I’ll be there
Always
Not for just an hour
No, no, not for just a day
Not for just a year
Oh but always

Days may not be fair
Always
But that’s when I’ll be there
Always
Not for just an hour
No, no, not for just a day
Not for just a year
Oh but always

Until forever is through
Until there’s just me and you
Always
Oh always

While the city starts to sleep
She’s watching over you
Smoke hangs on the downtown skyline
Moon pushes through
But some people’s on fire tonight
Wind rushing round their feet
Someone’s gonna sleep well tonight
Word is on the street

So high flyer, high flyer
Fly high tonight
Fly angel, fly higher
Fly here tonight

It’s a tribal thing we’re seeing
War paint on the face
A question of territory, pride and space
People strutting and feathers flying
It’s a sorry scene
Someone’s sleeping well tonight
Word is on the street

So high flyer, high flyer
Fly high tonight
Fly angel, fly higher
Fly high tonight

Brother, my brother
Don’t let me down again
Mother oh mother
Wipe your tears again

High flying bird embraced him
Held him to her breast
Soft feathers brushed his face
Finally came to rest
Gently rocking him to and fro
He quietly went to sleep
Someone’s found a place of peace tonight
Word is on the street
So high flyer, high flyer
Fly high tonight
Fly angel, fly higher
Fly away tonight

Hey, now
Hey, now
Seems we’re looking at some sunshine

Hey, now
Hey, now
Seems we’re looking at some sunshine

Running at the door
She stopped to brush her hair
Glancing up and down at her reflection

Did she look ok ?
Just in case he looked away
She thought of some excuses for conversation

She knew that he was cute
She’s seen him yesterday
Talking and laughing with his sister

How long does he stand ?
Will he still be there ?
She satisfied herself with this
But knew she’d only stare

Hey, now
Hey, now
Seems we’re looking at some sunshine

Hey, now
Hey, now
Seems we’re looking at some sunshine

All the night before
His name was everywhere
Though she didn’t know exactly what to call him

Inventing stories
To pass away the time
Until she’d find the courage to confront him

Managing to mention him
In everything she said
She knew she never felt like this before

How long was he staying ?
Will he still be there ?
Oh she knew the time had finaly come
She’d ask him then and there

Hey, now
Hey, now
Seems we’re looking at some sunshine

Hey, now
Hey, now
Seems we’re looking at some sunshine

Hey, now
Hey, now
Seems we’re looking at some sunshine

Hey, now
Hey, now
Seems we’re looking at some sunshine

In a second her heart was broken
She couldn’t believe her eyes
Her pulse was beating faster every minute

Looking out at the window
A car was driving off
His holidays was over, the romance with it

Running out the door
Tears in her eyes
She didn’t know what to say or what to do

Did he leave an address
Would he be back next year
Slowly the sunshine started poking through

Hey, now
Hey, now
Seems we’re looking at some sunshine

Hey, now
Hey, now
Seems we’re looking at some sunshine

Hey, now
Hey, now
Seems we’re looking at some sunshine

Hey, now
Hey, now
Seems we’re looking at some sunshine

Hey, now
Hey, now
Seems we’re looking at some sunshine
