(Rutherford)

(Face B de Working In Line)

And it really doesn’t matter what you say or what you do
After many years of being oh-so close, it’s over

I know you know, I know
Now that I’m out in the cold with the lonely people
Darling, darling, darling, darling, darling
I never thought that I could feel so all alone
Cos I will be whatever I should be, for you

I know you know, I know
Now that I’m out in the cold with the lonely people
Darling, darling, darling, darling, darling
You know it hurts me so, to be so all alone

And though it’s dark around us, I can see love in your eyes
I’ve covered all the angles, nothing will be a surprise

Cos I know that you know, I know you know
That everything is better in the morning
You’ve got to say that I, say that I
I’m really out of place

Oh, I know I’m a lucky boy
Now that I’m out in the cold with the lonely people
Darling, darling, oh darling, darling, darling
It leaves me cold to think, it’s after all these years

You hear they tell me something, I can see that in your eyes
And though I’ve covered all the angles, will it still be a surprise?

(Rutherford)

(Face B de Against All Odds de Phil Collins)

Did you ever wonder
Just who’s in control
Underneath the surface
Feel a different world

I feel the knife in my shoulder
But it doesn’t hurt at all
I’ll still be the loser
Whichever way I fall

It’s just a dream that I had and I’m making a big mistake
It’s just a dream that I had and I’m making a big mistake
It’s just a dream that I had and I’m making a big mistake
It’s just a dream that I had and I’m making a big mistake

I don’t think you care
Just what’s goin’ on
They get some information for you
Don’t stay too long

I can do what I want to
And I could say what’s in my mind
I’ve gotta make some decisions
I’m running out of time

It’s just a dream that I had and I’m making a big mistake
It’s just a dream that I had and I’m making a big mistake
It’s just a dream that I had and I’m making a big mistake
It’s just a dream that I had and I’m making a big mistake
It’s just a dream that I had and I’m making a big mistake
It’s just a dream that I had and I’m making a big mistake

(Face B de The Living Years)

Don’t stop now, it’s a work of art
Watching you work the route takes away my breath
Show him how, show him what to do
It’s a master-class, baby I’m impressed
She said, « Who do you think you’re talkin’ to?
I treat all my men with a little respect »
I said, « That may be the case baby,
But I know who you are, I don’t wanna be next »

(Ooh) Don’t waste your time, don’t throw those lines at me
(Ooh) Too many friends, too many casualties
(Ooh) You point those eyes just like a loaded gun
(Ooh) I’m not about to be just anyone

Things don’t change, there will always be
Someone the same as you, someone the same as me
That’s okay, there’s no need to rush
Please don’t adjust your philosophy
She said, « Who do you think you’re talkin’ to?
All I ask is just a little respect »
I said, « That may be the case baby,
But I know who you are, I don’t wanna be next »

(Ooh) Don’t waste your time, don’t throw those lines at me
(Ooh) Too many friends, too many casualties
(Ooh) I don’t need this, I need a tender heart
(Ooh) You worked alone, I knew that from the start

(Ooh) Don’t waste your time, don’t throw those lines at me
(Ooh) Too many friends, too many casualties
(Ooh) You point those eyes just like a loaded gun
(Ooh) I’m not about to be just anyone

No, no, no, keep away from me baby
I know who you are, hey, don’t wanna be next
Keep away, you’re wasting your time, you’ll ruin your lines, oh yeah

(Rutherford/Robertson)

(Face B de Get Up et Stop Baby)

I didn’t get it, not at all
When to run or when to crawl
Consistency, that’s not my game
A whisper, then a shout
My youthfulness, I sense today
Forever may have fell away
Reluctantly, I have to say
It’s time we talked things out

Cos I think I’ve got the message
I can hear you loud and clear
You don’t have to spell it out for me, my dear
You don’t have to paint a picture
Or whisper in my ear
Cos I think I’ve got the message, loud and clear

I don’t know what gets into me
Makes me act so foolishly
The steady hand, once in control
Been missing, here of late
I know it’s been a bumpy ride
So up and down, from side to side
I’ll get my head out of the clouds
And try to see things straight

Cos I think I’ve got the message
I can hear you loud and clear
You don’t have to spell it out for me, my dear
You don’t have to paint a picture
Or whisper in my ear
Cos I think I’ve got the message, loud and clear

You don’t have to paint no picture
Or whisper in my ear
I think I’ve got the message loud and clear
Yes, I think I’ve got the message
Loud and clear

(Rutherford/Robertson)

(Face B de Over my shoulder)

I’m thinking, I’m always the last to know
Seems like, I come on a little slow
You disappear before my eyes
How come I was the last to realize
Oh oh oh oh

Hoping, praying for something new
Wishing, that somebody might be you
Saw you standing in the street
Never thought we ever get to meet
Oh oh oh oh oh

Are you for real or just a fantasy
I like to think you just exist for me
So real to me
Whatever I do it only goes to show
It seems to me I’m still the last to know
Oh oh oh oh oh

Seems like, I’m always the least aware
Thinking, yeah
It’s not that I didn’t care
I got nobody else to blame
But it would help me if I knew you’re name
If I knew you’re name

Are you for real or just a fantasy
I like to think you just exist for me
Oh you feel so real
Whatever I do it only goes to show
It seems to me I’m still the last to know

Oh oh oh
I’m always the last to know
Don’t you know I’m thinking
Always the last to know
And I ask you
You disappear before my eyes
How come I’m the last one to realize
Always the last to know
Always the last

(Face B de A Beggar On A Beach Of Gold)

One two, one two

You’re dreamin’, your fast Dina has turned sixty-three
You hate readin’, you hate ridin’, you hate history
Your standing in nomans land til you hear the band checking
One two, (one two, one two)

No Chopin, or Beethoven, just a little R N B
’cause, in your dreams, in your dreams, in your dreams
You’ll be up there to
In your dreams, in your dreams, in your dreams
There’ll be lovin’ you

Every weekend it’s always the same
The boys watching Eric, the girls watch in vain
And the young contenders sit down here again
There all down here again
Boys at the front

Your hands spinnin’, with young women, playin’ on your mind
They say traction, but no action, ’cause you don’t have the time
Nobody can make you choose, so you play the blues
‘casue you want to (one two, one two)

Young liein’, you keep tryin’, not to toe the line
‘casue, in your dreams, in your dreams, in your dreams
You’ll be up there to
In your dreams, in your dreams, in your dreams
There’ll be lovin’ you

Every weekend it’s always the same
The boys watching Eric, the girls watch in vain
And all the young contenders sit down here again
Ain’t no trouble going down
Boys at the front

In your dreams, in your dreams, in your dreams
You’ll be up there to
In your dreams, in your dreams, in your dreams
There’ll be lovin’ you

Every weekend it’s always the same
The boys watching Eric, the girls watch in vain
And all the young contenders sit down here again
Ain’t no trouble

Every weekend it’s always the same
The boys watching Eric, the girls watch in vain
And the young contenders sit down here again
Down here again
Boys at the front

Boys at the front
Boys at the front

Thank you

(Face B de A Beggar On A Beach Of Gold)

Let me go said the little boy
And it’s just like me
Let me go said the little boy
And it’s just like me

And they stole my future, and they stole my place
And it’s just like me
But they won’t tell my story, they won’t show my face
And it’s just like me

When every single thing in the world is broken
There’s nothing left worth hanging on to

All I wanted was the tender touch
Never wanted much, but noone belived me
All I needed was a little luck
It would have meant so much, if someone belived me
All I needed was a little time
When we threw that line, well it worked out fine
All I wanted was the tender touch
Now it means so much, cause somebody needs me

Let me go said the little boy
And it’s just like me
Let me go said the little boy
Hey, it’s just like me

And it’s bit by bit, and piece by piece
And it’s just like me
I can’t see no conclusion, I can’t get no relief
And it’s just like me

When every mothers son in the world was running
I had my spirit broken in two

All I wanted was the tender touch
Never wanted much, but noone belived me
All I needed was a little luck
It would have meant so much, if someone belived me
All I needed was a little time
When you threw that line, well it worked out fine
All I wanted was the tender touch
Now it means so much, cause somebody needs me

Let me go
And it’s just like me

And it’s just like me

When every single thing in the world is broken
There’s nothing left worth hanging on to

All I wanted was the tender touch
Never wanted much, but noone belived me
All I needed was a little luck
It would have meant so much, if someone belived me
All I needed was a little time
When you threw that line, well it worked out fine
All I wanted was the tender touch
Now it means so much, cause somebody needs me

All I wanted was the tender touch
Never wanted much, but noone belived me
All I needed was a little luck
It would have meant so much, if someone belived me
All I needed was a little time
When you threw that line, well it worked out fine
All I wanted was the tender touch
Now it means so much, cause somebody needs me

All I wanted was the tender touch

(Rutherford/Carrack)

(Face B de Another Cup Of Coffee)

Lying sleepless wide awake, wondering how much I can take
You never change
Tired of living with your lies, comes to me as no surprise
You never change

No more tears left to cry
I have to forget you, all over again
No matter how many times that you try
I know that you never change

Like a habit hard to break, I can learn from my misstakes
You never change
Now I feel like I’ve been here before, oh a thousand times or more
But you never change

No more tears left to cry
I have to forget you, all over again
No matter how many times that you try
I know that you never change

All this time I finally realize that it’s all over
There’s no point in taking time to talk it over
There’s to much sorrow, to much pain to go through it all again
Cause you never change

No more tears left to cry
I have to forget you, all over again
No matter how many times that you try
I know that you never

No more tears left to cry
I have to forget you, all over again
No matter how many times you try to explain
I know that you never change

You never change

(Rutherford/Robertson)

(Face B de Another Cup Of Coffee)

You don’t know what love is baby, someday you may
You don’t know the hurt you cause
And all the thoughtless things you say

You don’t know, you don’t know

You don’t know what trust is maybe, someday you find
Someone is obsessed by you
Remember to be kind, then you know

What you don’t know

Cut to the chase
Spare me the lie, right to your face with no disguise
I’m not beeing mean, seems you’ve a lot to learn

Well you don’t need to be smart, or try to be cool
Noone suggesting you’re a fool
To your face, to your face, to your face

Baby, you don’t know what love is, someday you may
You don’t know the pain you cause
With all the crazy things you say

You don’t know, oh you don’t know

You don’t know what hope is baby, you have to try
Put your faith in someone, doesn’t mean he’ll make you cry

You don’t know, you don’t know

Put down your guard
Give me a break, just take a chance that’s all it takes
To my face, to my face, to my face

Tell me, You don’t know what love is, someday you may
You don’t know the pain you cause
With all these crazy things you say

You don’t know, no you don’t know

You don’t know what love is baby
But someday you may
And you don’t now the hurt you cause
All the silly thoughtless things you say

You don’t know, you don’t know, you don’t know baby
You don’t know the thoughtless things you say
You don’t know what love is
Someday you may, someday you may

You don’t know

(Rutherford/Carrack)

Face B de A Beggar On A Beach Of Gold

Nobody told me what I had to do to make you happy
Nobody told me what I had to do to make you stay
Somebody help me, how can I get your attention
Somebody tell me, why have we ended up this way

When I first saw you
Darling always from the start, I wanted to be with you
If I could only hold you
Take you in my arms, I can be there too

Tell me again, is there nothing I can do
To make you belive, every word I’m saying is true
Tell me you know what I mean

Nobody told me that I would be running round in circles
Nobody told me I’d just be waiting by the phone
Somebody help me, tell me ther’s no misunderstanding
Somebody tell me, why am I sitting here alone

All I’m asking
Darling look into my eyes, tell me what you see
Is it a dream
Or is it a fading memory, of you and me

Tell me again, is there nothing I can do
To make you belive, every word I’m saying is true
Tell me you know what I mean

Nobody told me what I had to do to make you happy
Nobody told me what I had to do to make you stay
Somebody help me, how can I get your attention
Somebody tell me, why we’ve ended up this way

Nobody told me, Nobody told me
Somebody help me, Somebody help me

(Rutherford/Neil)

Face B de A Beggar On A Beach Of Gold

Help me, help me understand
I still find it hard to comprahend
Tell me, tell me who I am
The one who shared your life or just a friend

I can read your heart like an open book
But I can’t belive the thinhgs you do
I can’t belive the things you do

Show me, show me what you need
Do you really know or do you care

You don’t now me if you think I can’t see
promises you break when I’m not there

I can read your face like an open book
But I can’t belive the things you do
I can’t belive the things you do

When you’re alone and looking out across the years
You’re caught in space, you’re caught in time

And when you add up all the laughter and the tears
I hope your future will be mine

Help me, help me understand
I still find it hard to comprahend
Tell me, tell me who I am
The one who shared your life or just a friend

Just a friend

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

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

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

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
All the girls ‘n’ boys they wanna see him play
Nobody else they 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

(Released as B-side of « Dance Into The Light » single, 1996)

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?

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.

(Collins/Crosby)

(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.

(Released as B-side of « We Wait And We Wonder » CD single, 1994)

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…

(Featured on the soundtrack of « Buster », 1988)

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
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.

(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

(Released as a b-Side of « Can’t Stop Loving You » Single, 2002)

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

(Face B de Wall Of Sounds)

They say every action
Has an opposite and an equal one
For each little action
It’s like you’re looking back at a loaded gun

So don’t fire the first shot
Before you think it through
When you can hear above the push and shove
Then it’ll all come back to you
Yes it all comes back to you

You don’t remember
What you did to get where you are right now
You don’t recall it
But you must’ve done something wrong somehow

You can’t be an island
In anything that you do
You can put it out – a scream and shout
But it’ll all come back to you
Yes it’ll all come back to you

Your reflection
Looks into your face
Putting you back in your place
As you ride for the fall
He will always be calling your name
Cause when it’s all said and done
He and you are both one and the same

One word in anger
And another comes back to break your day
One voice of reason
And everybody will hear the things you say

One punch in frustration
Could be leaving you black and blue
But if you give your heart
Wake up, get smart
Then it’ll all come back to you
Yes it’ll all come back to you

Your reflection
Looks into your face
Putting you back in your place
As you ride for the fall
He will always be calling your name
When it’s all said and done
He and you are both one and the same

So don’t fire the first shot
Before you think it through
When you can hear above the push and shove
Then it’ll all come back to you
Yes it’ll all come back to you

They say every action
Has an opposite and an equal one
For each little action
It’s like you’re looking back at a loaded gun

So don’t fire the first shot
Before you think it through
When you can hear above the push and shove
Then it all comes back to you
Yes it all comes back to you

They say every action
Has an opposite and an equal one
For each little action
It’s like you’re looking back at a loaded gun

Coffret sorti en 2019 regroupant les7 albums « rocks » de Tony Banks publiés entre 1979 et 1995 plus un DVD avec les clips.

3/5

Une compilation regroupant les participations multiples (mais pas exhaustives, il en manque beaucoup) de Phil au court du temps. Et oui, il compte Genesis comme une « participation » en faisant figurer No Son Of Mine sur le disque. Autrement c’est très sympa. Je ne sais pas si c’est un disque qui s’écoute beaucoup de fois tant les morceaux se suivent sans logique mais il est intéressant pour montrer un aperçu de tout ce que Phil a pu faire.

Catastrophe. Rien ne va. Depuis la couverture absolument affreuse, jusqu’à l’idée. Compilation maladroite sortie à l’occasion d’une pseudo réunion (première interview à 5 dans la même pièce depuis le départ de Peter Gabriel) et de la sortie du documentaire de la BBC « Together and Apart », elle est inutile. La « nouveauté » est l’intégration pour la première fois de morceaux des carrières solos des membres du groupe. Enfin, pas Ant et pas Ray, faut pas déconner non plus… Bref passez votre chemin et choisissez plutôt The Platinum Collection pour découvrir le groupe.

En 2009 est sorti le coffret Live rassemblant les albums Live du groupe. Avec quelques particularités. 

L’album Live de 1973 s’est vu augmenté de titres isolés de la tournées The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway.

The Way We Walk a été remis dans l’ordre chronologique du concert (avec quelques différences, les morceaux ne sont pas exactement les mêmes). Les trois morceaux qui n’avaient pas été enregistrés lors de la tournée We Can’t Dance ont été placés après Turn It On Again, sans même prendre la peine de faire un fade out des cris du public, pouvant laisser penser qu’il s’agit du même concert… 

Un album live bonus enregistré en 1973 a été rajouté.

Extra tracks - Live at the Rainbow 1973

1 : Dancing with the Moonlit Knight

2 : The Cinema Show

3 : I Know What I Like (In Your Wardrobe)

4 : Firth of Fifth

5 : More Fool Me

6 : The Battle of Epping Forest

7 : Supper’s Ready

Remarque : Watcher Of The Skies et The Musical Box sont présents sur le DVD 5.1 compagnon du CD. Les morceaux stéréo ont été offerts en téléchargement à l’époque par le groupe.

Bon, je mets quatre étoiles parce que c’est Genesis, mais bon, je vous préviens je vais être sévère avec ce disque, parce que je suis fan et que je m’en donne le droit ! Évidemment il y a les excellentes faces b, évidemment il y a les versions live inédites, évidemment il y a un excellent work in progress de Mama, et ça, seul suffit à faire les quatre étoiles, mais franchement, où sont passées les versions live de Eleventh Earl of Mar, Tonight Tonight Tonight version longue, Keep it Dark, pourtant enchainé en concert avec It’s Gonna Get Better, présent sur le disque, ou encore In that Quiet Earth ? Que signifie cet horrible fade out à la fin de Man on the corner ? N’aurait il pas été mieux de mettre Who Dunnit? qui suivait ce morceau normalement ? Où sont passés Me and Virgil et Match of the Day, toutes deux faces b ? Était ce bien nécessaire de les sacrifier au nom des remix de Invisible touch, Tonight Tonight Tonight et Land of confusion, très dispensables ? Bref, bien qu’excellent, cet objet, destiné aux fans, laisse un goût amer d’inachevé et de peu mieux faire… Enfin, quand on est fan on peut bien faire son chieur chiant et exigeant non ?

Well there’s a place where two worlds collide
The pile of stone against the pull of the tide
You can stay with your feet on the ground
Or step into the water, leave the dry behind

On the shoreline
Meet me on the shoreline
Where you can only swim if you try

Well, if there’s somewhere on the other side
It might be better, it might be as bad
Someday soon you’ll have to make a move
Cos you can’t stay forever, ah just waiting

On the shoreline (on the shoreline)
Meet me on the shoreline (on the shoreline)

Take me over, lead me through

Well can you take me there, to the other side
Where everything is new, uncertain and strange
Don’t ever let me go till we’re there
I don’t know what it is I’m looking for
And until it’s found I won’t be sure…

Well, there are squares in the game of life
When you can keep on moving or turn aside
Yes, there are times when you have to decide
To put your feet in the water, or stay

On the shoreline (on the shoreline)
Meet me on the shoreline (on the shoreline)
Where you can only swim if you try
I’ll be there – oh
On the shoreline (on the shoreline)
I’ll be there on the shoreline (on the shoreline)
Where you can only swim if you try
I’ll be there
I’ll be there – oh
Yes, I’ll be there
I’ll be there…

In life there are those decisions
Which direction you should take
It’s only later that you realize
All those simple mistakes you make
I don’t like being alone
Don’t wanna be by myself
But since you’ve gone that’s all I can think oF
I can’t think of nothing else

Oh, I said I’m sorry, soon I give it up
You know I’m sorry, soon I give it up
You know I’m sorry, soon I give it up
Cos my heart’s on fire
My heart’s on fire

Woh can you take me there
Oh, come back and take me there
Cos I need to be with you
Be there with you

Yes there is no denying
Our love is not untrue
I know I’ve lied so many times before
But deep down there’s only you
I need you here by my side
Together our love could grow
But first you have to believe that I want you
More than you’ll ever know

Woh, I said I’m sorry and I give it up (give it up)
You know I’m sorry, soon I give it up (give it up)
You know I’m sorry, soon I give it up (give it up)
Cos my heart’s on fire
My heart’s on fire

Woh can you take me there
Oh, come back and take me there
Cos I need to be with you
Be there with you

(give it up, give it up, give it up…)

With it we take our chances
What will be will be
But I don’t care what the people may think
Just as long as you’re here with me
Don’t like being alone
Don’t wanna be by myself
And since you’ve gone, well that’s all I can think of
I can’t think of nothing else

Woh, I said I’m sorry and I give it up (give it up)
You know I’m sorry soon I give it up (give it up)
You know I’m sorry soon I give it up
Cos my heart’s on fire
My heart’s on fire

Woh can you take me there
Oh, come back and take me there
Cos I need to be with you
Be there with you
You, be there with you

Hearts on fire
Hearts on fire
Hearts on fire
My heart’s on fire
Hearts on fire, hearts on fire…

What was it you said to me
Back in the days when things looked fine
’bout how we would be together
Until we left the earth behind
Oh, it’s funny how things can change
Cos there was a time I thought I’d be the one
Who’d leave and start again
But now I’d stay forever

Ooh my hopes are as the leaves upon the water
Just sunk in the night
And though I know you couldn’t care, you oughtta
Ah, the end of a life
Or maybe when you’re older, and you’re thinking back
You might recall
Now did I act carefully, did I do right?
Or were we meant to be, all of our lives
In love and harmony, all of our lives?

So now, take my hand
Come, hold me closely
As near as you can
Believing all that we could be
And all that we have been
And all that we are

Everyday seems summertime
The river flow with wine
Ooh when you were here with me
I wish we’d stayed that way forever

Oh my hopes are as the leaves upon the water
Just sunk in the night
And though I know you couldn’t care, you oughtta
Ah, the end of a life
Or maybe when you’re older, and you’re thinking back
Well you might recall
Now did I act carefully, did I do right?
Or were we meant to be, all of our lives
In love and harmony, all of our lives?

So now, take my hand
Come, hold me closely
As near as you can
Believing all that we could be
And all that we have been
And all that we are

Oh my hopes were as the leaves upon the water
Ah, sunk in the night
And though I know you couldn’t care, you oughtta
Oh, the end of a life
And maybe when you’re older, and you’re thinking back
Oh, you might recall
Now did I act carefully, did I do right?
Or were we meant to be, all of our lives
In love and harmony, all of our lives?

So now, take my hand
Come, hold me closely
As near as you can
Believing all that we could be
And all that we have been
And all that we are

Paperlate paperlate
Paperlate paperlate

Paperlate, oh I’m sorry but there is no one on the line
Paperlate, oh I’m sorry but rest easy no news is good news

Ooh it’s too easy to live like clockwork
Tick tock watching the world go by
Any change would take too long
So dry your eyes
Ooh it’s too easy to live in a cold sweat
Just sitting dripping in pools below
You can wipe your face
Kill the pain
But the fever won’t go, no no

Paperlate
Pull it together now
Put your feet back on the ground
Paperlate
Ooh don’t worry now
You’re not alone
Look around you
Paperlate
Ooh I’m sorry but there’s no one on the line
Paperlate
Ooh I’m sorry but rest easy no news is good news

Ooh it’s too easy to compute your future
Taking no risks and playing too safe
Any change would take too long
So dry your eyes
Ooh it’s too easy to talk about rocking the boat
Making changes and changing track
But you’d better not lock that door
Cos you’ll be coming back

Ah you’re breathing faster
Silence the only sound
There’s no need to be nice on the way up
Cos you’re not coming down

Paperlate paperlate
Paperlate paperlate
Paperlate paperlate
Paperlate paperlate

Paperlate
Ooh I’m sorry but there’s no one on the line
Paperlate
Oh I’m sorry but rest easy no news is good news…

The girl from all those songs
Who made everything feel right
She came in like an angel, into your lonely life
And filling your world with light
Oh, and everybody told you « you’re oh so lucky »

Curtains part revealing a country scene
Clothed in green and brown
Evidence of autumn
And recent rain
On a winding lane, a byway
Walking on that road is a certain girl
In all the world the one
Guaranteed to move you and turn your head
When all’s been said and done

The girl from all those songs
Who made everything feel right
She came in like an angel, into your lonely life
And filling your world with light
Oh, and everybody told you « you’re oh so lucky »

The night is clear but cool
Ooh maybe dawn is breaking as you turn to find her gone
Then you see the note
Ooh you cannot believe it
And you think you’ll go insane…

But that was many years ago
And though the pain is dim
A something still remains
Though you hardly can recall
Her face or form
Her memory lingers on
Ooh she made everything feel right
She came in like an angel (in like an angel),
Into your lonely life (into your life)
And filling your world with light
Oh and everybody told you « you’re oh so lucky »

Ooh yeah
You know I never wanted to be closer
And I’ll still be here until it’s over
No, no I never wanted to be closer
But you’ll be back, I could’ve told you

Well I always knew
Yes I could see it coming
Your ambitious streak
You always want things beyond your reach
Well now you’ve got what you wanted
And you’re free to be the things
You always said you’d be
You’re up there looking down
Tell me what do you see – oh

Cos you know
You know I never wanted to be closer
And I’ll still be here until it’s over
No, no I never wanted to be closer
Yeah, but you’ll be back, I could’ve told you

Well it seems to me
That you’ve got to fight for yourself
In this world we live in
It’s dog-eat-dog and never give in
Why worry when you’re holding the aces
Don’t throw it away cos you know
I’d rather be you than me
Up there looking down
Tell me what do you see – oh

hey hey yeah

Ooh yeah
You know I never wanted to be closer (never wanted)
And I’ll still be here ’til it’s over
No, no I never wanted to be closer (never wanted)
Ooh but you’ll be back, I could’ve told you

It’s been a long time coming
But at last we seem to be moving on, straight ahead
We’re finally getting something done
Time flies and ‘fore you know it
You’ll be getting closer to where
You always knew you’d be
Up there looking down
Tell me what do you see – oh

Cos you know
No, no I never wanted to be closer (never wanted)
I’ll still be here until it’s over
No, you know I never wanted to be closer (never wanted)
Yeah but you’ll be back, I could’ve told you

hey hey yeah…

INSIDE

Brother Seems they’re letting him out next year
He’s behaving himself, I hear
Governor Conway says it will be fine
Just as long as he can tow the line

It’s the same old story
But it says here « Mum you’re not to worry »
‘Cos some you lose and some you lose

At this party, he was on his own
All he did was say he’d take her home
But it seems they didn’t go straight there
‘cos on the porch, she told him,
« put your hand here »

Yes it’s that same old story
They told her mum she’s not to worry

Police « If what she says is so,
we’ll never let him go! »

Him « Never a word could be heard
Not even the sound of a bird
Singing it over again, telling a different story
Never the same as before
See the summer going out by the door »
Brother And now that you’ve paid for those lies
Get another disguise

« It’s twenty years now since our Kid came free
Oh I remember August ’53
But it wasn’t quite like they said
With that behind you, you can’t plan ahead
Yes it’s the same old story
They say you’re free, but don’t worry
What they said’s not so
They’ll never let you go! »

Him « Never a word could be heard
Not even the sound of a bird
Singing it over again, telling a different story
Never the same as before
See the summer going out by the door »
Brother And now that you’ve paid for those lies
Get another disguise

You are terrified by the smallest sound
Because you live your life in such a sheltered world
As do those who surround you
Well I have seen you stung by poisonous flies
And you suffer much too much from their bites
There you sit in your comfort watching other people get caught by the
storm

Many a thing that used to be a secret
Has become so talked about
Not worth a second thought
There’s different kinds of secrets now
Times change, it’s not enough to say
It seemed a good idea a hundred years ago
You think it’s not your problem
It really doesn’t matter at all

Every stone that’s thrown must fall to the ground
But you don’t give a thought to where they might come down
You are feeding the fire over which you’ll be roasted

Anywhere that they don’t speak the same
In any place that they don’t think the same
You think it’s not your problem
No no

You think it’s not your problem
It really doesn’t matter at all
Oh…

Maybe it’s not your fate to be a leader of men
But you just leave it all to someone else and complain
You could be so much stronger, but it really doesn’t matter any longer
Cos you’re feeding the fire over which you’ll be roasted
Cos you’re feeding the fire over which you’ll be roasted

I see your smiling face, by the open door
There’s the morning light
Shining in your hair, and in your eyes

And just a little way behind that smile of yours
I see another one, oh so far away
If only for one second, I could hold you close to me
When the Master calls for me again
There’s nothing I can say, or I can do

Goodbye, my love
Time has come to say farewell
I hear the call again
Goodbye to the world
I’ve sheltered for so long
Oh there’s so much my love, that I can never say

And in a little while, in a little while
There’s nothing left to see

As the years go by and I have not returned
And the night has come, falling all around
Ooh if you count the stars you’ll know
How many have gone out
And when the Master calls for me again
There’s nothing that I can say
Or I can do

Stand in the sun
Shut your eyes and feel the world
It’s changing every day
Goodbye my love
Each day will seem so long
Ooh there’s so much I feel, that I can never say

I can’t see you
I can’t feel you anymore
I’ve just a memory of that open door

When they went to bed that night no-one would have believed
That in the morning light would not be there
The dark hung heavy on the air like the grip of a jealous man
No place was there known to have been spared
Then panic took control of minds as fear hit everyone
The day the light went out of the daytime sky

Artificial light could hardly penetrate the gloom
Nothing out of reach could be observed
Looting, pillage, murder, rape became the rule of that day
Who hit him no one knew or whom he hit
Cars were caught in pileups and the planes could never land
The day the light went out of the daytime sky

« Now I can rest here after my journey
Now I can feed here before I continue »

Some there were who’s heads were clear who sought, tried to find
The nature of this deadly foe, the dark
It seemed the sun was still somewhere though hidden from their sight
By something, though amorphous, yet alive
And so they looked for ways to rid themselves of the parasite
The day the light went out of the daytime sky

« Now I can rest here after my journey
Now I can feed here before I continue »

They tried in many fruitless ways to see the noonday sun
By blasting with their missiles through the dark
But soon a kind of sleepy state came over everyone
Till nothing seemed to stir or even breathe
And when the darkness chose to disappear not many had survived
Then came a shadow – another had arrived
And again the light went out the daytime sky

She packed her bags and dressed
Long before the sunrise
No one knew
She told them many times
About how she would teach them
And now it’s time
Standing quietly by the door
Her face is numb with fear
She stops and then goes on
« Leave forever – it’s now or never »

Quickly walking down the street
It’s cold and grey, dawn’s breaking
She don’t mind (she don’t mind)
Why she feels so grown up now
Her life is just beginning
She don’t know (she don’t know)
She’s standing in the pouring rain
Her make-up’s running down
She wonders now she’s here
« Where will I go? Who do I know? »

Now, now she’s not quite so sure
I may be wrong but home seems so much more friendly now
And they might worry but she doesn’t want them to
Cos causing pain, that’s not the thing that she set out to do

So she’s back in bed before
Anyone can miss her
She feels good (she feels good)
Knowing the chance was there
Deciding not to take it
That’s her choice (that’s her choice)
She’s still awake, her mum comes in
« Me and dad, we’ve had a chat
And we’re sorry for the things we said
Please forgive us – you wouldn’t leave us? »

Who put fifty tons of shit on the Foreign Office roof?
Who suffers from nine known diseases?
Who gets up in the morning when the sun comes up
And makes their beds, paper clips, bus tickets
All around their heads?
Who congregate around Trafalgar Square
Taking pot shots at the tourists?
Oh you’ve got to watch out
When you wander round the square in the morning
Cos they’re everywhere, they’re everywhere

Here we have an honest man
A civil servant to boot
He lived high up in the Ministry
And when he wished to make a point
He knew just what to do
His window ledges were all covered in grease
« I want them out of here »

He said to me, « I want them gone »
Because you see – Oh don’t you see
None of us are getting any younger
You’ve got to follow your nose
And if it tells you that you’ve got to go
Well that’s because, they’re everywhere,
They’re everywhere

So we called in those men, those horrible men
We set them to work on the rooftops
You see their van is very plain
And I know they’re too ashamed
To wear their by appointment badges anymore
Sometimes they use vaseline, sometimes they use the pill
I’ve often seen them with a gun
But as the years go by, old habits seem to die
And nowadays they knockatize them all
Oh you’ve got to watch out
As you wander round the square in the morning
Oh they’re everywhere, they’re everywhere

Stepping out the back way
Hoping nobody sees
Feeling can be easy
Think how I feel

What will you say?
What will you do?
Why can’t you see?
It’s yourself I love

Don’t you know I’d like some answers
You could give me a call
I hardly know the reason
And I really feel no good at all

Where will you go?
Where will you be?
Where can I try?
It’s yourself I love

Eh bien, il existe un endroit où deux mondes entrent en collision
Le tas de pierres contre la force de la marée
Et tu peux rester les pieds sur terre
Ou aller dans l’eau, laisser le sec derrière

Sur le rivage
Rencontre-moi sur le rivage
Où tu peux seulement nager si tu essayes

Eh bien, s’il y a quelque part de l’autre côté
C’est peut-être mieux, c’est peut-être aussi mauvais
Un jour, bientôt, tu devras partir
Car tu ne peux pas rester éternellement, ah simplement à attendre

Sur le rivage (Sur le rivage)
Rencontre-moi sur le rivage (Sur le rivage)

Emporte-moi, fais-moi traverser

Eh bien, peux-tu m’emmener là-bas, de l’autre côté
Là où tout est nouveau, incertain et étrange
Ne me laisse pas partir tant que nous n’y sommes pas
Je ne sais pas ce que je cherche
Et tant que je ne le trouve pas, je n’en serai pas sûr.

Eh bien, il y a des carrés dans le jeu de la vie
Quand tu peux continuer de t’écarter ou de détourner
Oui, parfois quand tu dois décider
De mettre les pieds dans l’eau, ou de rester

Sur le rivage (Sur le rivage)
Recontre-moi sur le rivage (Sur le rivage)
Où tu peux simplement nager si tu essaies
Je serai là, oh
Sur le rivage (Sur le rivage)
Je serai là sur le rivage (Sur le rivage)
Où tu peux simplement nager si tu essaies
Je serai là
je serai là, oh
Oui, je serai là
Je serai là
Je serai là

Dans la vie il y a ces décisions
Quelle direction on devrait prendre
Ce n’est que plus tard qu’on réalise
Toutes ces erreurs bêtes qu’on fait
Je n’aime pas être seul
Je ne veux pas être tout seul
Mais depuis que tu es partie, c’est tout ce à quoi je peux penser
Je ne peux penser à rien d’autre

Oh, j’ai dit que je suis désolé, j’abandonne vite
Oui tu sais je suis désolé, j’abandonne vite
Oui tu sais je suis désolé, j’abandonne vite
Car mon cœur est enflammé
Mon cœur est enflammé

Oh peux-tu m’emmener là
Oh, reviens et emmène-moi là
Car j’ai besoin d’être avec toi
D’être là avec toi

Oui, c’est indéniable
Notre amour n’est pas faux
Je sais que j’ai menti tant de fois auparavant
Mais au fond il n’y a que toi
J’ai besoin de toi ici à mes côtés
Ensemble notre amour pourrait grandir
mais d’abord tu dois croire que je te veux
Plus que tu ne le sauras jamais

Oh, j’ai dit que je suis désolé, et j’abandonne vite (abandonne)
Oui tu sais je suis désolé, j’abandonne vite (abandonne)

Avec ça, nous prenons notre chance
Ce qui doit arriver, arrivera
Mais je me moque de ce que les gens peuvent penser
Tant que tu es là avec moi
Je n’aime pas être seul
Je ne veux pas être tout seul
Et depuis que tu es partie, bien c’est tout ce à quoi je peux penser
Je ne peux penser à rien d’autre

Mon cœur est enflammé

Oh peux-tu m’emmener là
Oh, reviens et emmène-moi là

Être là avec toi
Toi, être là avec toi

Cœurs enflammés, cœurs enflammés…

Qu’est ce que c’était, ce que tu me disais
À cette époque où tout allait bien
À propos de de notre vie ensemble
Jusqu’à que nous abandonnions la terre
Oh, c’est drôle comme les choses peuvent changer
Car il fut une époque où je pensais que je serais celui
Qui partirais et recommencerais
Mais maintenant je resterais pour toujours

Oh mes espoirs sont commes les feuilles sur de l’eau
Simplement noyés dans la nuit
Et bien que je sache que tu t’en moquerais, tu ne devrais pas
Ah, la fin d’une vie
Ou peut-être quand tu seras plus vieux, et que tu repenses
Tu te rappeleras peut-être
Maintenant est-ce que j’ai agi prudemment, est-ce que j’ai bien fait?
Ou étions-nous faits l’un pour l’autre, toute notre vie
Dans l’amour et l’armonie, toutes notre vie?

Alors maintenant, prends ma main
Viens, serre-moi fort
Aussi près que tu le peux
Croyant tout ce que nous pourrions être
Et tout ce que nous avons été
Et tout ce que nous sommes

Chaque jour ressemble à l’été
La rivière coule avec du vin
Oh quand tu étais ici avec moi
Si seulement nous étions restés ainsi pour toujours

Oh mes espoirs sont commes les feuilles sur de l’eau
Simplement noyés dans la nuit
Et bien que je sache que tu t’en moquerais, tu ne devrais pas
Ah, la fin d’une vie
Ou peut-être quand tu seras plus vieux, et que tu repenses
Tu te rappeleras peut-être
Maintenant est-ce que j’ai agi prudemment, est-ce que j’ai bien fait?
Ou étions-nous faits l’un pour l’autre, toute notre vie

Viens, serre-moi fort

Et bien que je sache que tu t’en moquerais, tu ne devrais pas
Ah, la fin d’une vie

La fille de toutes ces chansons
Qui a fait que tout allait bien
Elle est entrée comme un ange, dans ta vie solitaire
Et a rempli ton monde de lumière
Oh, et tout le monde te disait « tu es si chanceux »

Les rideaux séparés révèlent une scène de campagne
Revêtue de vert et marron
Le signe de l’automne
Et la pluie récente
Sur un chemin sinueux, écarté
Marchant sur cette route, on voit une certaine jeune fille
Dans tout le monde, la seule
Qui garantit de te remuer et de te faire tourner la tête
Au bout du compte

La fille de toutes ces chansons
Qui a fait que tout allait bien
Elle est entrée comme un ange, dans ta vie solitaire
Et a rempli ton monde de lumière
Oh, et tout le monde te disait « tu es si chanceux »

La nuit est claire mais fraîche
Oh peut-être que l’aube se dissipe lorsque tu te retournes pour découvrir qu’elle est partie
Puis tu vois la note
Oh tu ne peux pas le croire
Et tu penses que tu vas devenir fou

Mais c’était il y a des années
Et bien que la douleur aie diminué
Quelque chose demeure
Bien que tu puisses à peine te rappeler
de son visage ou de sa silhouette
Son souvenir persiste
Oh elle a fait que tout allait bien
Elle est entrée comme un ange (comme un ange),
Dans ta vie solitaire (dans ta vie solitaire)
Et a rempli ton monde de lumière
Oh et tout le monde te disait « Tu es si chanceux »

Oh ouais
Tu sais je n’ai jamais voulu être plus proche
Et je resterai toujours ici jusqu’à ce que ce soit fini
Non, non je n’ai jamais voulu être plus proche
Mais tu reviendras j’aurais pu te dire

Eh bien j’ai toujours su
Oui je la voyais venir
Ta tendance ambitieuse
Tu veux toujours des choses qui ne sont pas à ta portée
Eh bien maintenant tu as ce que tu voulais
Et tu es libre d’être tout
Ce que tu as toujours dit que tu serais
Tu es là-haut regardant en bas
Dis-moi ce que tu vois, oh

Car tu sais
Tu sais je n’ai jamais voulu être plus proche
Et je resterai toujours ici jusqu’à la fin
Non, non je n’ai jamais voulu être plus proche
Ouais, mais tu reviendras, j’aurais pu te dire

Eh bien il me semble
Que tu dois te battre pour toi
Dans ce monde où nous vivons
Les loups se mangent entre eux et il ne faut jamais céder
Pourquoi s’inquiéter quand tu as les atouts en main
Ne le gaspille pas car tu sais
Je préfèrerais mieux être toi que moi
Là-haut regardant en bas
Dis-moi ce que tu vois, oh

Hé hé ouais

Oh ouais
Tu sais je n’ai jamais voulu être plus proche (jamais voulu)
Et je resterai toujours ici jusqu’à ce que ce soit fini
Non, non je n’ai jamais voulu être plus proche (jamais voulu)
Ouais, mais tu reviendras, j’aurais pu te dire

Ca a été long à venir
Mais enfin on dirait que nous avançons, droit devant
Nous sommes enfin en train de faire activer les choses
Le temps passe vite et avant que tu le saches
Tu te raprocheras d’où
Tu as toujours su que tu serais
Là-haut regardant en bas
Dis-moi ce que tu vois, oh

Car tu sais
Non, non je n’ai jamais voulu être plus proche (jamais voulu)
Et je resterai toujours ici jusqu’à ce que ce soit fini
Non, non je n’ai jamais voulu être plus proche (jamais voulu)
Ouais, mais tu reviendras, j’aurais pu te dire

hé hé ouais…

À L’INTERIEUR

Le frère: il semble qu’ils vont le laisser sortir l’année prochaine
Il se comporte bien, j’ai entendu
Le gouverneur Conway dit que ça va aller
Tant qu’il peut rester en ligne

C’est toujours la même histoire
Mais ça dit ici « Maman tu n’as pas à t’inquiéter »
Car tu en perds certains et tu en perds certains

À cette soirée, il était seul
Tout ce qu’il a fait était, dit-il, de la ramener chez elle
Mais il semble qu’ils n’y sont pas allés directement
Car dans le porche, elle lui a dit,
« Met ta main là »

Oui c’est toujours cette vieille histoire
Ils ont dit à leur mère qu’elle n’a pas à s’inquiéter

Police: « si ce qu’elle dit est vrai,
Nous n’allons jamais le laisser partir! »

Lui: « Jamais un mot n’aurait pu être entendu
Pas même le son d’un oiseau
Chantant encore et encore, racontant une histoire différente
Jamais la même qu’auparavant
Regarde l’été sortir par la porte »
Le frère: et maintenant que tu a payé pour ces mensonges
Prends un autre déguisement

« ça fait 20 ans maintenant que notre fils a été libéré
Oh je me souviens Août 1953
Mais ce n’était pas vraiment comme ils ont dit
Avec ça derrière toi, tu ne peux pas faire de projets
Oui c’est toujours la même histoire
Ils disent que tu es libre mais ne t’inquiète pas
Ce qu’ils ont dit n’était pas vrai
Ils ne te laisseront jamais partir! »

Lui: « Jamais un mot n’aurait pu être entendu
Pas même le son d’un oiseau
Chantant encore et encore, racontant une histoire différente
Jamais la même qu’auparavant
Regarde l’été sortir par la porte »
Le frère: et maintenant que tu a payé pour ces mensonges
Prends un autre déguisement

DEHORS

(Banks/Collins/Rutherford, main lyricist Banks)

Released as B-side of « Land Of Confusion » single, 1986.


Tu es terrifié par le moindre bruit
Parce que tu vis ta vie dans un monde tellement protégé
Comme tous ceux qui t’entourent
Hé bien je t’ai vu te faire piquer par des mouches vénimeuses
Et tu souffres beaucoup trop de leurs morsures
Là tu t’asseoies dans ton confort observant les autres gens pris dans la tempête

De nombreuses choses qui, avant, étaient secrètes
Sont devenues de grands sujets de conversation
Qui ne valent pas la peine d’hésiter
Il y a plusieurs sortes de secrets maintenant
Les temps changent, ce n’est pas suffisant de dire
Que ça semblait être une bonne idée il y a 100 ans
Tu penses que ce n’est pas ton problème
ça n’a vraiment pas du tout d’importance

Toute pierre lancée doit tomber par terre
Mais tu ne songes pas à l’endroit où elles pourraient atterrir
Tu alimentes le feu sur lequel tu seras grillé

Quel que soit l’endroit où ils ne parlent pas pareil
Dans n’importe quel endroit où ils ne pensent pas pareil
Tu penses que ce n’est pas ton problème – non non

Tu penses que ce n’est pas ton problème
Que ça n’a vraiment pas du tout d’importance – oh

Peut-être que ce n’est pas ton destin, d’être un meneur d’hommes
Mais tu laisses tout à quelqu’un d’autre et te plains
Tu pourrais être tellement plus fort, mais ça n’a vraiment plus d’importance à présent
Car tu nourris le feu sur lequel tu seras grillé
Car tu nourris le feu sur lequel tu seras grillé

Je vois ton visage souriant, par la porte ouverte
Il y a la lumière du jour
Brillant dans tes cheveux, et dans tes yeux

Et juste derrière ce sourire qui est le tiens
J’en vois un autre, si loin d’ici
Si seulement pour une seconde, je pouvais te serrer dans mes bras
Quand le Maître m’appellera à nouveau
Il n’y a rien que je puisse dire, ni que je puisse faire

Au revoir, mon amour
Le temps est venu de dire adieu
J’entends l’appel encore
Au revoir au monde
J’ai crié si longtemps
Il y a tant de choses, mon amour, que je ne puisse jamais dire

Et dans quelques temps, dans un peu de temps
Il n’y aura plus rien à voir

Alors que les années passent et je ne suis pas revenu
Et la nuit est venue, tombant tout autour
Si tu comptes les étoiles tu sauras
Combien se sont éteintes
Et quand le Maître m’appellera à nouveau
Il n’y a rien que je puisse dire, ou que je puisse faire

Reste au soleil
Ferme les yeux et ressens le monde
Il change chaque jour
Au revoir mon amour
Chaque jour semblera si long
Il y a tant de choses que je ressens, que je ne puisse jamais dire

Je ne peux pas te voir
Je ne peux plus te sentir
J’ai juste le souvenir de cette porte ouverte

Quand ils sont allés au lit cette nuit-là personne n’aurait cru
Que le matin, la lumière ne serait pas là
L’obscurité planait lourdement dans l’air comme la prise d’un homme jaloux
Aucun endroit n’était connu pour avoir été épargné
Puis la panique prit le contrôle des esprits au moment où la peur frappait tout le monde
Le jour où la lumière s’est éteinte du ciel dans la journée

La lumière artificielle pouvait à peine pénétrer l’obscurité
Rien hors d’atteinte ne pouvait être observé
Les saccages, les pillages, les meurtres, les viols devinrent la règle ce jour-là
Qui le frappait, personne n’a su ou qui a t-il frappé
Des voitures été prises dans des carambolages et les avions ne pouvait jamais atterrir
Le jour où la lumière s’est éteinte du ciel dans la journée

« Maintenant je peux me reposer ici après mon voyage
Maintenant je peux manger ici avant de continuer »

Certains avaient l’esprit clair, et ont cherché, essayé de trouver
La nature de cet ennemi mortel, le noir
Il semblait que le soleil était encore quelque part, bien que caché à leurs yeux
Par quelque chose d’amorphe, mais bien vivant
Et alors ils cherchaient des solutions pour se débarrasser du parasite
Le jour où la lumière s’est éteinte du ciel dans la journée

« Maintenant je peux me reposer ici après mon voyage
Maintenant je peux manger ici avant de continuer »

Ils ont essayé de nombreuses choses en vain pour voir le soleil de midi
En explosant leurs missiles à travers le noir
Mais vite une sorte de torpeur s’empara de tout le monde
Jusqu’à ce que rien ne semble bouger ou même respirer
Et quand les ténèbres ont choisi de disparaître, peu avaient survécu
Puis vint une ombre – une autre était arrivée
Et encore une fois la lumière s’est éteinte du ciel dans la journée

Elle a fait ses valises et s’est habillée
Bien avant le levé du jour
Personne ne savait
Elle leur avait dit plusieurs fois
Comment elle les montrerait
Et maintenant c’est le moment
Restant silencieusement à côté de la porte
Son visage est engourdi par la peur
Elle s’arrête, et puis continue
« Pars pour toujours – C’est maintenant ou jamais »

Descendant rapidement la rue
Il fait froid et gris, l’aube pointe
Elle se moque de savoir (elle se moque de savoir)
Pourquoi elle se sent maintenant si adulte
Sa vie ne fait que commencer
Elle ne sait pas (elle ne sait pas)
Elle reste sous la pluie battante
Son maquillage coule
Elle se demande pourquoi elle est là maintenant
« Où irai-je? Qui est-ce je connais? »

Maintenant, maintenant elle n’est plus vraiment sûre
Je peux avoir tort mais la maison lui semble beaucoup plus accueillante maintenant
Et ils pourraient s’inquiéter mais elle ne le veut pas
Car faire de la peine, ce n’est pas ce qu’elle cherche à faire

Alors elle est de retour dans son lit avant
Que quelqu’un ne s’en rende compte
Elle se sent bien (elle se sent bien)
Sachant que l’opportunité était là
Décidant de ne pas la prendre
C’est son choix (c’est son choix)
Elle est toujours éveillée, sa maman entre
« Moi et papa, nous avons eu une petite conversation
Et nous sommes désolé pour les choses que nous avons dites
S’il te plaît pardonne-nous – tu ne vas pas nous quitter? »

(Banks/Collins/Rutherford)

Who put fifty tons of shit on the Foreign Office roof?
Who suffers from nine known diseases?
Who gets up in the morning when the sun comes up
And makes their beds, paper clips, bus tickets
All around their heads?
Who congregate around Trafalgar Square
Taking pot shots at the tourists?
Oh you’ve got to watch out
When you wander round the square in the morning
Cos they’re everywhere, they’re everywhere

Here we have an honest man
A civil servant to boot
He lived high up in the Ministry
And when he wished to make a point
He knew just what to do
His window ledges were all covered in grease
« I want them out of here »

He said to me, « I want them gone »
Because you see – Oh don’t you see
None of us are getting any younger
You’ve got to follow your nose
And if it tells you that you’ve got to go
Well that’s because, they’re everywhere,
They’re everywhere

So we called in those men, those horrible men
We set them to work on the rooftops
You see their van is very plain
And I know they’re too ashamed
To wear their by appointment badges anymore
Sometimes they use vaseline, sometimes they use the pill
I’ve often seen them with a gun
But as the years go by, old habits seem to die
And nowadays they knockatize them all
Oh you’ve got to watch out
As you wander round the square in the morning
Oh they’re everywhere, they’re everywhere

Sortant de l’arrière
En espérant que personne ne voit
Sentir peut être facile
Pense à la façon dont je me sens

Que diras-tu?
Que feras-tu?
Pourquoi ne vois-tu pas?
C’est toi que j’aime

Ne sais-tu pas que j’aimerais quelques réponses
Tu pourrais m’appeler
Je connais à peine la raison
Et je ne me sens vraiment pas bien du tout

Où iras-tu?
Où seras-tu?
Où puis-je essayer?
C’est toi que j’aime

5/5

On pouvait s’attendre au pire avec une telle compilation, mais il n’en est rien. Phil ne s’est pas moqué de nous. Ok, tous les grands tubes sont là, mais pas que, et c’est en ça que cette compilation est audacieuse. Tout d’abord on a un certain nombre de perles oubliées, comme Don’t Let Him Steal Your Heart Away ou un maximum de chansons de Both Sides, mais on a surtout des chansons inédites comme Tearing and Breaking, une version quasi a capela de True Colors à tomber par terre qui enterre à 10 Km sous terre la précédente version, et des petites surprises comme Somewhere, The Way You Look Tonight etc. Un double CD en plus, avec autant de chansons pas connues du grand public, voire des fans. Qui osera dire que Phil n’a pas pris un risque ? (alors qu’il aurait pu se contenter d’une compil sans surprise, sur un cd, avec juste One More Night et Do You Remember and co…)

Tracklist

(Martyn/Collins)

Tearin’ and breakin’ down
Tearin’ my heart
Tearin’ and breakin’ down
Tearin’ my heart

Tearin’ and breakin’ down
Tearin’ my heart
There goes my heart again
Tearin’ and breakin’ down
Tearin’ my heart
Watch my heart fly away

All the love that I have ever known
Came from the sweetest things
Every time I was looking for love
I found it in here

Tearin’ and breakin’ down
Tearin’ my heart
There goes my heart again
Tearin’ and breakin’ down
Tearin’ my heart
Watch my heart fly away

All the tears you found in your eyes
I know that they were mine
All the love you were trying to disguise
I never could deserve

Tearin’ and breakin’ down
Tearin’ my heart
There goes my heart again
Tearin’ and breakin’ down
Tearin’ my heart
Watch my heart fly away

Saw that look in the eyes
And I felt so sorry for myself
I could have cried
Heard you sing about
Then you know it felt so strange
Cause I’ve only tried

Tearin’ and breakin’ down
Tearin’ my heart
There goes my heart again
Tearin’ and breakin’ down
Tearin’ my heart
Watch my heart fly away

(Collins)

We never talked about it
But I hear the blame was mine
I’d call you up to say I’m sorry
But I wouldn’t want to waste your time

‘Cos I love you, but I can’t take any more
There’s a look I can’t describe in your eyes
Yes we could try, like we tried before
When you kept on telling me those lies

Do you remember…?

There seemed no way to make up
‘Cos it seemed your mind was set
And the way you looked it told me
It’s a look I know I’ll never forget

You could’ve come over to my side
You could’ve let me know
You could’ve tried to see the difference between us
But it seemed too far for you to go.

Do you remember…?

Through all of my life
In spite of all the pain
You know people are funny sometimes
‘cos they just can’t wait
To get hurt again

Do you remember…?

There are things we won’t recall
Feelings we’ll never find
It’s taken so long to see it
Cos we never seemed to have the time

There was always something more important to do
More important to say
But « I love you » wasn’t one of those things
And now it’s too late

Do you remember…?

(Collins)

One more night, one more night
I’ve been trying ooh so long to let you know
Let you know how I feel
And if I stumble if I fall, just help me back
So I can make you see

Please give me one more night, give me one more night
One more night cos I can’t wait forever
Give me just one more night, oh just one more night
Oh one more night cos I can’t wait forever

I’ve been sitting here so long
Wasting time, just staring at the phone
And I was wondering should I call you
Then I thought maybe you’re not alone

Please give me one more night, give me just one more night
Oh one more night, cos I can’t wait forever
Please give me one more night, ooh just one more night
Oh one more night, cos I can’t wait forever
Give me one more night, give me just one more night
Ooh one more night, cos I can’t wait forever

Like a river to the sea
I will always be with you
And if you sail away
I will follow you

Give me one more night, give me just one more night
Oh one more night, cos I can’t wait forever
I know there’ll never be a time you’ll ever feel the same
And I know it’s only words
But if you change your mind you know that I’ll be here
And maybe we both can learn

Give me just one more night, give me just one more night
Ooh one more night, cos I can’t wait forever
Give me just one more night, give me just one more night
Ooh one more night, cos I can’t wait forever

(Featured on the soundtrack of « Against All Odds » ,1984)

How can I just let you walk away, just let you leave without a trace
When I stand here taking every breath with you, ooh
You’re the only one who really knew me at all

How can you just walk away from me,
when all I can do is watch you leave
Cos we’ve shared the laughter and the pain and even shared the tears
You’re the only one who really knew me at all

So take a look at me now, oh there’s just an empty space
And there’s nothing left here to remind me,
just the memory of your face
Ooh take a look at me now, well there’s just an empty space
And you coming back to me is against all odds and that’s what I’ve got to face

I wish I could just make you turn around,
turn around and see me cry
There’s so much I need to say to you,
so many reasons why
You’re the only one who really knew me at all

So take a look at me now, well there’s just an empty space
And there’s nothing left here to remind me, just the memory of your face
Now take a look at me now, cos there’s just an empty space

But to wait for you, is all I can do and that’s what I’ve got to face
Take a good look at me now, cos I’ll still be standing here
And you coming back to me is against all odds
It’s the chance I’ve gotta take

Take a look at me now

(Collins)

Could’ve given you everything that you need
but I cannot turn back the years
The perfect love was all you wanted from me
but I cannot turn back the years

So we have to be strong, and I’m finding that hard
we have to move on, but no matter how hard I try
if your heart’s in pieces, you look for the truth
and when I look deep down inside I know, it’s too bad I love you

Sometimes. hits me in the morning, hits me at night
that I cannot turn back the years
so I look out my window, turn off my light
but I cannot turn back the years

Can’t make it seem easy, when you’re all that I see
can’t live in a dream and I won’t serenade the truth
people are hurting and they’re looking to me
and I look at you there’s nothing more to say, it’s too bad I love you

But I’m never gonna give it up

All that I lived for, all that I dreamed
but I cannot turn back the years
You’re the water i drink, you’re the air that I breathe
but i cannot turn back the years

So we have to be strong, and I’m finding that hard
we have to move on, but no matter how hard I try
if your heart’s in pieces, you look for the truth
and when I look deep down inside I know, it’s too bad I love you

But I’m never gonna give it up

(Wine/Bayer/Sager)

(Featured on the soundtrack of « Buster », 1988)

When I’m feeling blue, all I have to do
Is take a look at you, then I’m not so blue
When you’re close to me, I can feel your heart beat
I can hear you breathing near my ear
Wouldn’t you agree, baby you and me got a groovy kind of love

Anytime you want to you can turn me onto
Anything you want to, anytime at all
When I kiss your lips, ooh I start to shiver
Can’t control the quivering inside
Wouldn’t you agree, baby you and me got a groovy kind of love, oh

When I’m feeling blue, all I have to do
Is take a look at you, then I’m not so blue
When I’m in your arms, nothing seems to matter
My whole world could shatter, I don’t care
Wouldn’t you agree, baby you and me got a groovy kind of love
We got a groovy kind of love
We got a groovy kind of love, oh
We got a groovy kind of love

(Collins)

I got lost, couldn’t find my way
and I guess there’s nothing more to say
love can make you blind, make you act so strange
but I’m here and here I will stay

So everyday I cry
yes everyday I fall
do you ever wonder why, why I love everything about you

But everyday I say I’ll try to make my heart be still
’til then every way there is to cry, ourselves to sleep we will

It picked me up, knocked me off my feet
I’ve got no way to explain
still I love you, love you, love you but this fire inside
will never see the light of day

So everyday goes by
and everyday I fall
it makes me wonder why,
my life’s worth nothing without you

But everyday I say I’ll try
to make my heart be still
‘cos every way there is to cry,
ourselves to sleep, we will

You’ll never know, no, no, no ,no ,no
you’ll never know just how close we were
you’ll never know, no, no, no ,no ,no
you’ll never know
no you’ll never see

The book closes and we try to forget
but I know that things won’t change
how we feel, how life goes on
and that seems so strange

And so the light fades away
try, try, try as I may
I can’t stop thinking about you
it seems my life’s worth nothing without you

But everyday I say I’ll try
to make my heart be still
’til then every way there is to cry,
ourselves to sleep, we will

Everyday, everyday you know I try so hard
everyday, everyday it gets a little harder

(Collins)

You were lonely and you needed a friend
And he was there at the right time with the right smile
Just a shoulder to lean on
Someone to tell you it’ll all work out alright

Don’t let him steal your heart away
No, don’t let him steal your heart away
Don’t let him steal your heart away
No, don’t let him steal your heart away

You can look at him the way you did me
And hold him close say you’re never letting go
But any fool can see you’re fooling yourself
But you ain’t fooling me

So don’t let him steal your heart away
No, don’t let him steal your heart away

And don’t pack my suitcase, I’ll be back
And don’t take my pictures off a’ the wall
Oh, did you hear me?
Don’t let him change a thing ‘cos I’ll be back
Jus tell him to pack his things and get out of your life
And just give me one more chance
I’ll show you I’m right, I’m right

‘Cos I’ve been thinking and I know it was me leaving you lonely
But hoping you could be strong
But could you look at me straight
Tell me what else can I do but say I was wrong?

So don’t let him steal your heart away
No, don’t let him steal your heart away

Well he’s gonna try to make it work for you
Make you think your whole life’s been leading to this
But whatever you do
Think about me and don’t be fooled by his kiss

And don’t let him steal your heart away
Please, don’t let him steal your heart away

And don’t pack my suitcase, I’ll be back
And don’t take my pictures off a’ your wall
Oh, did you hear me?
Don’t let him change a thing ‘cos I’ll be back
Jus tell him to pack his things and get out of your life
And just give me one more chance
I’ll show you I’m right
You know I’m right

You were lonely and you needed a friend
And he was there at the right time with the right smile
Just a shoulder to lean on
Someone to say don’t you worry it’ll all be alright
But he’s no good for you
He’ll make you think your whole life’s been leading to this
And whatever you do
Think about me, oh, and don’t be fooled by his kiss

(Collins)

Please come out tonight I need you here
its been a long, long time and I can’t wait
let’s find out, let’s see what it’s like out there
if it rains we’ll find somewhere, somewhere dry and warm

You’ll say « my, it’s been a long, long time »
I’ll say « how are you? I’ve been fine »

Please come out tonight, let’s go out and see the world
we can try to find, find somewhere
it seems so long ago, I can hardly remember the time
it’s all I want, it’s all I want, so let’s see what we find

You’ll say « there’s so much you need to know »
I’ll say « are you really sure you have to go? »

We don’t need a reason, no explainations
just stay with me here, tonight
I won’t say a word
I just need you here

Please come out tonight, let’s go out and find ourselves
you can lean your head on my shoulder, remember?

You’ll say « My, is that the time? »
I’ll say « why not stay with me tonight? »

We don’t need a reason
it’s so warm inside
there’s no one between us
if someone comes we can hide
just lay here beside me
just see what it’s like

Please come out tonight

(Collins)

It must be love, I’m feeling
This must be love
Oh this must be love, I’m feeling
This must be love

Well I wait in every day, just in case,
You decide to call
And I can hardly wait, ‘cos I never thought time could pass so slowly

It must be love, I’m feeling
This must be love
Oh this must be love, I’m feeling
This must be love

Happiness is something I never thought I’d feel again, but now I know
It’s you that I’ve been looking for
And day by day more and more
I know what you think, you’ve heard it before
Don’t tell me I know
But this feeling inside my heart,
You know I’m never letting go
‘Cos I think that…

It must be love, I’m feeling
This must be love
Oh this must be love, I’m feeling
This must be love

Words can only say so much
It’s hard to express
The things you do to me
You’re everything I could ever dreamed you’d be

This must be love, I’m feeling
This must be love
Oh this must be love, I’m feeling
This must be love…

(Collins)

It’s in your eyes,
the love you hide away.
You can’t disguise
the things you feel, the thing you say

If you just call my name
any time at all, I’ll be there.

I don’t know why,
the way you’re falling away from me.
I can’t describe
it’s how it feels, it’s what I see.

If you just call my name
anytime at all,
anytime at all,
anytime at all, I’ll be there.

I look around, all I see is you
but you gotta tell me that you want me too.
Look at me, you’re all that I need, it’s true.

I’m here, just call my name
anytime at all, I’ll be there.

I look around, all I see is you
but you gotta tell me that you want me too.
Look at me, you’re all that I need, it’s true.

I can’t disguise
the love I wait for you to share
I can’t deny
if you reach out and touch my hand it’s there.

Or just call my name,
anytime at all,
anytime at all,
anytime at all, I’ll be there.

(Nicholls)

So you’re leaving in the morning on the early train
I could say everything’s alright
And I could pretend and say goodbye
Got your ticket
Got your suitcase
Got your leaving smile
I could say that’s the way it goes
And I could pretend and you won’t know
That I was lying

Cause I can’t stop loving you
No I can’t stop loving you
No I won’t stop loving you
Why should I?

We took a taxi to the station, not a word was said
And I saw you walk across the road
For maybe the last time I don’t know
Feeling humble
I heard a rumble
On the railway track
And when I hear that whistle blow
I’ll walk away and you won’t know
That I’ll be crying

Cause I can’t stop loving you
No I can’t stop loving you
No I won’t stop loving you
Why should I?

Even try ……I’ll always be here by your side
Why, why, why ……I never wanted to say goodbye
Why even try ….I’m always here if you change, change your mind

So you ‘re leaving in the morning on the early train
I could say everything’s alright
And I could pretend and say goodbye
But that would be lying

Cause I can’t stop loving you
No I can’t stop loving you
No I won’t stop loving you
Why should I even try?

(Collins)

I want to testify, testify my love for you
I’m here to testify, testify my love for you
And I will do, all that I can do for you
Together, we will be together

Come on testify, testify your love for me
Testify, testify your love for me
You can be all the things you want to be
And together, we will be together

Every heart that’s ever been broken
Knows these things must not go unspoken
Giving yourself, giving each other
The strength to lean on one another
I’ll be there for you, you’ll be here for me

That is why I want to testify, testify my faith in you
Come on and testify, testify your trust in me
We can be all the things we want to be
And together, we can do it together

Every heart that’s ever been broken
Knows these things must not go unspoken
Giving yourself, giving each other
The strength to lean on one another
I’ll be there for you, I know that you’ll be here for me

I want to testify, testify my love for you
I’m here to testify, testify my love for you
I will do everything that I can do for you
And you know together, we will always be together

(Steinberg/Kelly)

You, with the sad eyes:
don’t be discouraged, oh, I realize
it’s hard to take courage
In a world full of people, you can lose sight of it
And the darkness inside you makes you feel so small

But I see your true colors shining through
I see your true colors, and that’s why I love you
So don’t be afraid to let them show-
your true colors, true colors
Beautiful, like a rainbow

Show me your smile
Don’t be unhappy, can’t remember when
I last saw you laughing
This world makes you crazy; when you’ve taken all you can, baby,
just call me up because you know I’ll be there

But I see your true colors shining through
I see your true colors, and that’s why I love you
So don’t be afraid to let them show-
Just show your true colors, true colors
Beautiful, like a rainbow

Such sad eyes
Take courage, now; I realize
This world makes you crazy; when you’ve taken all you can, baby,
just call me up because you know I’ll be there

And I see your true colors shining through
I see your true colors, and that’s why I love you
So don’t be afraid, to let them show
only your true colors, true colors
true colors, beautiful,
beautiful like a rainbow, yeah, yeah

Show me your colors
show me your rainbow
show me your colors
show me your rainbow
that’s why I love you

(Collins)

Come stop your crying
It will be all right
Just take my hand
Hold it tight

I will protect you
from all around you
I will be here
Don’t you cry

For one so small
you seem so strong
My arms will hold you
Keep you safe and warm
This bond between us
can’t be broken
I will be here
Don’t you cry

‘Cause you’ll be in my heart Yes, you’ll be in my heart
From this day on
Now and forever more

You’ll be in my heart
No matter what they say
You’ll be here
in my heart always
Always

(Collins)

I read all the letters, I read each word that you’ve sent to me
And though it’s past now, and the words start to fade
All the memories I have start, still remain

I’ve kept all the pictures, but I hide my feelings so no-one knows
Oh sure my friends all come round, but I’m in a crowd on my own
It’s ‘cos you’re gone now, but your heart, still remains
And it’ll be here if you come again

You see, I’d heard the rumours, I knew before you let me know
But I didn’t believe it, not you,
No you would not let me go
Seems I was wrong, but I love, I love you the same
And that’s the one thing that you can’t take away but just remember…

If leaving me is easy,
Going back is harder…

(Mayfield)

I’ve been trying, lord knows that I’ve been trying
to understand why can I be your only man

Now you said you loved me so sincerely
that I believed that you loved me
Yet I can’t understand why
Can I be your only man

Day after day you tread me in your way
I wanna go but my heart says no
Acting so strange but my love still remains
So keep on trying boy she’s gonna change

(Collins)


I’ve forgotten everything about you
’til someone says your name
I’ve forgotten all the reasons I loved you
’til someone tells me that you rang

The memories are hazy now
I don’t recall at all
there’s nothing, there’s nothing there
just me
and I don’t understand why

I can’t recollect my feelings
’til someone mentions that they saw you
I really don’t remember all the things you said
’til someone shows me where you live

Why is everything so hazy now
I don’t recall at all
there’s nothing, there’s nothing there
just me
and I don’t understand why

I can’t recall your smile
the touch of your hand holding mine
and I can’t remember why
holding you seemed so right

The memories they’re hazy now
I don’t recall at all
there’s nothing, there’s nothing there
just me
and I don’t understand why

I’ve forgotten everything about you
’til someone says your name
I’ve forgotten all the reasons I loved you
’til someone tells me that you rang

(Bernstein/Sondheim)

There’s a place for us,
Somewhere a place for us.
Peace and quiet and open air
Wait for us
Somewhere.

There’s a time for us,
Some day a time for us,
Time together with time spare,
Time to learn, time to care,
Some day!

Somewhere.
We’ll find a new way of living,
We’ll find a way of forgiving
Somewhere . . .

There’s a place for us,
A time and place for us.
Hold my hand and we’re halfway there.
Hold my hand and I’ll take you there
Somehow,
Some day,
Somewhere!

(Collins/Stuermer)

I was lying awake last night, waiting for your call
But if the rumours are true, that won’t bother you at all
I’m trying hard to understand
What it takes to be your man
Now I don’t have to wonder anymore

Least you can do is say you’re sorry
Least you can do is give me back my heart
Just give me back my heart

Seems living in hope was wrong those years I was away
Thinking your letters, I never received, had gone astray
You said you’d always be there for me
Like a fool I thought you’d be
Now I don’t know what I was thinking at all

But the least you can do is say you’re sorry girl
Least you can do is give me back my heart
I won’t come around no more
You won’t find me standing outside your door
Least you can do is tell me why, tell me why

The least you can do is say you’re sorry girl
Least you can do is give me back my heart
I won’t come around no more
You won’t find me standing outside your door
But the least you can do is tell me why

I won’t be your fool anymore
There’s no need to be cruel anymore …no, no
Least you can do is say you’re sorry girl
The least you can do is give me back my heart ….just give me back my heart

(Collins/Dozier)

(Featured on the soundtrack of « Buster », 1988)

Well, there was no reason to believe she’d always be there
But if you don’t put faith in what you believe in
It’s getting you nowhere
Cos it hurts, you never let go
Don’t look down, just look up
Cos she’s always there to behind you, just to remind you

Two hearts, believing in just one mind
You know we’re two hearts believing in just one mind

Cos there’s no easy way to, to understand it
There’s so much of my life in her, and it’s like I’m blinded
And it teaches you to never let go
There’s so much love you’ll never know
She can reach you no matter how far
Wherever you are

Two hearts, believing in just one mind
Beating together till the end of time
You know we’re two hearts believing in just one mind
Together forever till the end of time

She knows (she knows)
There’ll always be a special place in my heart for her
She knows, she knows, she knows
Yeah, she knows (she knows)
No matter how far apart we are
She knows, I’m always right there beside her

We’re two hearts…

(Bishop)


You called me from the room in your hotel
All full of romance for someone that you met
And telling me how sorry you were, leaving so soon
And that you miss me sometimes when you’re alone in your room
Do I feel lonely too?

You have no right to ask me how I feel
You have no right to speak to me so kind
We can’t go on just holding on to time
Now that we’re living separate lives

Well I held on to let you go
And if you lost your love for me, well you never let it show
There was no way to compromise
So now we’re living (living)
Separate lives

Ooh, it’s so typical, love leads to isolation
So you build that wall (build that wall)
Yes, you build that wall (build that wall)
And you make it stronger

Well you have no right to ask me how I feel
You have no right to speak to me so kind
Some day I might (I might) find myself looking in your eyes
But for now, we’ll go on living separate lives
Yes for now, we’ll go on living separate lives
Separate lives

(Robinson)

I’ve got sunshine on a cloudy day
When it’s cold outside
I’ve got the month of May

I guess you’d say
What can make me feel this way

My girl (my girl, my girl ooh)
Talkin’ bout my girl
(My girl)

I’ve got so much honey
The bees envy me
I’ve got a sweeter song
Than the birds in the tree

Well, I guess you say
What can make me feel this way

My girl (my girl, my girl ooh)
Talkin’ bout my girl
My girl

Ooh
Hey hey hey
Hey hey hey
Ooh yeah

I don’t need no money
Fortune or fame
I’ve got all the riches baby
One man can claim

Well, I guess you say
What can make me feel this way

My girl (my girl, my girl, ooh)
Talkin’ bout my girl
My Girl
Talkin’ bout my girl

I’ve got sunshine on a cloudy day
With my girl,
I even got the month of May
My girl
Talkin’ bout
Talkin’ bout
My girl
Talkin’ bout my girl

(Berlin)

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

(Kern/Fields)

Someday,
When I’m awfully low
And the world is cold,
I will feel a glow just thinking of you
And the way you look tonight.
But, you’re lovely
With your smile so warm
And your cheek so soft.
There is nothing for me but to love you
Just the way you look tonight.

With each word your tenderness grows,
Tearing my soul apart.
And that love that wrinkles your nose,
Touches my foolish heart.

But you’re lovely,
Never, never change.
Keep that breathless charm.
Won’t you please arrange it, ’cause I love you
Just the way you look tonight–
Just the way you look tonight.
