Tracklist

(Collins ?)

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

Life is a Rat Race
Chasing easy money

Life is a Rat Race
Chasing your tail

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

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

Life is a Rat Race
Chasing easy money

Life is a Rat Race
Chasing your tail

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

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

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

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

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

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

Just reach out
It’s everywhere

Reach out and touch it

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

Listen

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

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

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

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

Just reach out
It’s everywhere

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

Just catch the feeling people
You know
It’s everywhere

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

(I’ve got blisters on my fingers!)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I only wanna see him play
All the girls ‘n’ boys they wanna see him play
Nobody else they wanna see him play
And he brings a tear to the eye
He’ll make you smile of make you cry
And nobody asks him why
Cos they just wanna see him play

They come from every way, every night
He’s got a band so out there, it’s outta sight
And the boys in the dancehall are rocking in the aisle
The girls up front – they wanna see him smile

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

They wanna, they wanna, they wanna see him play

Ah, station to station, coast to coast

He makes every evening feel like Saturday night
And if you’re happy or sad he’ll make the feeling right

I only wanna see him play
All the girls ‘n’ boys they wanna see him play
Nobody else they wanna see him play
And he brings a tear to the eye
He’ll make you smile of make you cry

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?

(Collins/Stuermer)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

(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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I remember the laughing
We were always laughing

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

Bon… Franchement ce n’est pas terrible. Motown c’est cool, les chansons sont bonnes, Phil chante bien bien qu’on sente qu’il était déjà diminué mais l’ensemble ne décolle pas et est trop homogène. Une chanson ne ressemble pas aux autres et sort du lot : la chanson titre. 

Tracklist

(Norman J Whitfield & Edward Holland Jr.)

I love you girl, with all my heart and soul.
I can’t understand why you treat me cold.
Your every wish, girl, is my command
And that’s why I can’t seem to understand why,
Girl, girl, girl why you wanna make me blue?
I’m askin’ you girl, girl, girl why you wanna make me blue?

One day you say you love me too.
The next day you tell me that we are through.
My love for you is just a game.
But each time we play, girl, my heart feels the pain.
Girl, girl, girl why you wanna make me blue? Oh
Girl, girl, girl why you wanna make me blue? So blue

[Instrumental]

Woo girl, girl, girl why you wanna make me blue? (Make me blue)
Oh girl, oh girl, oh girl tell me why can’t you be true? (Can’t be true)
The way you treat me it just isn’t fair.
You make it so plain you just don’t care.
You have a ball around my time.
Sleepless nights are getting me tired.
Girl, girl, girl why you wanna make me blue?
I’m askin’ you girl, girl, girl why you wanna make me blue? Baby
Girl, girl, girl why you wanna make me blue?

(Edward Holland Jr., Lamont Dozier & Brian Holland)

Whenever I’m with him
Something inside starts to burnin’
And I’m filled with desire
Could it be a devil in me
Or is this the way love’s supposed to be?

It’s like a heat wave, burnin’ in my heart
I can’t keep from cryin’, it’s tearin’ me apart

Whenever he calls my name
Soft, low, sweet and plain
I feel right there, I feel that burnin’ flame
Has a high blood pressure got a hold on me
Or is this the way love’s supposed to be?

It’s like a heat wave, burnin’ in my heart
I can’t keep from cryin’, it’s tearin’ me apart

Ooh, ooh, heat wave
Ooh, ooh, heat wave

Sometimes I stare in space, tears all over my face
I can’t explain it, don’t understand it
I ain’t never felt like this before
Now that funny feelin’ has me amazed
I don’t know what to do, my head’s in a haze

It’s like a heat wave, burnin’ in my heart
I can’t keep from crying, it’s tearin’ me apart

Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, oh yeah
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, oh yeah
I feel it burnin’, right here in my heart

(Stevie Wonder, Sylvia Moy & Henry Cosby)

Baby, everything’s alright
Uptight, out of sight
Baby, everything’s alright
Uptight, out of sight

I’m a poor man’s son, from across the railroad tracks
The only shirt I own is hangin’ on my back
But I’m the envy of every single guy
Since I’m the apple of my girl’s eye

When we go out stepping on the town for a while
My money’s low and my suit’s out of style
But it’s all right if my clothes aren’t new
Out of sight because my heart is true

She says baby everything’s alright
Uptight, out of sight
Baby, everything’s alright
Uptight, clean out of sight

She’s a pearl of a girl, I guess that’s what you might say
I guess her folks brought her up that way
The right side of the tracks, she was born and raised
In a great big old house, full of butlers and maids

She says, « No one is better than I »
I know I’m just an average guy
No football hero or smooth Don Juan
Got empty pockets, you see I’m a poor man’s son

Can’t give her the things that money can buy
But I’ll never, never, never make my baby cry
And it’s alright, what I can’t do
Out of sight because my heart is true

She says baby everything’s alright
Uptight, clean out of sight
Baby, everything’s alright
Uptight, clean out of sight
Baby, everything’s alright
Uptight

Baby, everything’s alright
Uptight, way out of sight
Baby, everything’s alright
Uptight, clean out of sight

(Gerry Goffin & Carole King)

You gotta give me some
Give me some of your lovin’
You gotta give me some of your lovin’

Now I’m not a greedy girl
I don’t need the world
(Just give me some)
Some of your lovin’ now, oh, oh, oh, oh

Now I don’t expect you to guarantee
Your faith and devotion to only me
I’m aware you got a lot of wild oats to sow
But baby when I need you
Don’t you tell me no

You gotta give me some
(Give me some of your lovin’)
Oh yes you do now
You gotta give me some of your lovin’

Now I’m not a jealous child
My demands are mild
(Just give me some)
Some of your lovin’ now, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

I know a man likes to feel that he’s been around
Before he decides to settle down
I’ve no doubt
Some day you’re gonna feel that way too
But baby, just remember
(Until you do)

You gotta give me some
(Give me some of your lovin’)
Oh yes you do now
I mean to tell you
(You gotta give me some)
Of your lovin’

Now I’m not a greedy girl
I don’t need the world
(Just give me some)
Some of your lovin’ now, oh oh, oh, oh

You gotta give me some, some of your lovin’
I mean to tell you
(You gotta give me some of your lovin’)
Oh, don’t forget about me now
I mean to tell you, oh
Ah, you gotta give me some of your lovin’
Some of your lovin’

(Edward Holland Jr. & Norman J. Whitfield)

I know you wanna leave me
But I refuse to let you go
If I have to beg and plead for your sympathy
I don’t mind ’cause you mean that much to me

Ain’t too proud to beg and you know it
Please don’t leave me girl, don’t you go
Ain’t too proud to plead, baby, baby
Please don’t leave me girl, don’t you go

Now I heard a cryin’ man is half a man
With no sense of pride
But if I have to cry to keep you I don’t mind weepin’
If it will keep you by my side

Ain’t too proud to beg, sweet darlin’
Please don’t leave me girl, don’t you go
Ain’t too proud to plead, baby, baby
Please don’t leave me girl, don’t you go

If I have to sleep on your door step all night and day
Just to keep you from walkin’ away
Let your friends laugh, even this I can stand
‘Cause I wanna keep you any way I can

Ain’t too proud to beg, sweet darlin’
Please don’t leave me girl, don’t you go
Ain’t too proud to plead, baby, baby
Please don’t leave me girl, don’t you go

Now I’ve got a love so deep in the pit of my heart
And each day it grows more and more
I’m not ashamed to come and plead to you, baby
If pleadin’ keeps you from walkin’ out the door

Ain’t too proud to beg, sweet darlin’
Please don’t leave me girl, don’t you go
Ain’t too proud to plead, baby, baby
Please don’t leave me girl
Baby, baby baby, baby, baby, please

(Brian Holland, Lamont Dozier, Edward Holland Jr.)

Girl, every single time
You take me out with you
You always flirt around
With someone new

But I never criticize
The tearful things you do
‘Cause I’m so afraid
Of losing you

But in my lonely room
Tears I don’t have to hide
‘Cause I just lock my door
And let myself go
I lay right, I lay right down and cry

Every place we go
People are whispering
About your flirting ways
And it hurts me so to hear

Oh in the public’s eye
I just push behind
All my hurt inside
I pretend that I don’t mind

But in my lonely room
Tears I don’t have to hide
In my lonely room
Tears I don’t have to hide

In my lonely room
Tears I don’t have to hide

(Edward Holland Jr., Brian Holland & Lamont Dozier)

I know you’re leaving me behind
I’m seeing you, darling, for the very last time
Show a little tenderbess before you go
Please let me feel your embrace once more

Take me in your arms, rock me, rock me a little while
Hold me darling, rock me, rock me a little while
We all must feel heartache sometime
Right now, right now can’t you see that I’m feeling mine

I tried my best to be strong, but I’m not able
I’m like a helpless child wrapped up in a cradle
Let me know joy before I grieve
Hold me, darling, before you leave

Take me in your arms, rock me, rock me a little while
Oh, darling, rock me, rock me a little while
I’m losing you and all my happiness
My life is over, I got to confess

I’ll never see your smiling face no more
I’ll never hear your knocking on my door
Before you leave me, baby, leave me behind
Please let me hold you just one more time

Take me in your arms, rock me, rock me a little while
Oh, darling, rock me, rock me a little while

Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby ……

I said I never would beg, and I said I wouldn’t plead, no
But here I am, baby, baby, baby, please
Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby please
Please, please, baby, please

Take me in your arms, rock me, rock me a little while
Hold me, darling, rock me, rock me a little while…

(Stevie Wonder)

Where has my love gone?
How can I go on?
It seems dear love has gone away

Where is my spirit?
I’m nowhere near it,
Oh yes, my love has gone astray

But I’ll blame it on the sun,
The sun that didn’t shine,
I’ll blame it on the wind and the trees

I’ll blame it on the time that never was enough,
I’ll blame it on the tide and the sea,
But, my heart blames it on me

Who poured the love out?
What made this bitter doubt?
Is peace not here for me to see?

Wish I could tell you,
What I am feeling,
But, words won’t come for me to speak

But I’ll blame it on the sun,
That didn’t fill the sky,
I’ll blame it on the birds and the trees

I’ll blame it on the day that ended once too soon,
I’ll blame it on the nights that could not be,
But, my heart blames it on me

[Background]…Yeh, yeh, yeh, ooh,
Your heart blames it on you this time

(Norman J. Whitfield & Barrett Strong)

It was the third of September
That day I’ll always remember, yes I will
‘Cause that was the day, that my daddy died
I never got a chance to see him
Never heard nothin’ but bad things about him
Momma I’m depending on you, to tell me the truth
Momma just hung her head and said, son

[Chorus]
Papa was a rolling stone,
Where ever he laid his hat was his home
And when he died, all he left us was alone
Papa was a rolling stone, (my son, yeah)
Where ever he laid his hat was his home
And when he died, all he left us was alone

Hey Momma!
Is it true what they say that Papa never worked a day, in his life
And Momma, some bad talk goin’ round town sayin’ that
Papa had three outside children
And another wife, and that ain’t right
Heard some talk Papa doing some store front preachin’
Talking about saving souls and all the time leechin’
Dealing in dirt, and stealing in the name of the Lord
Momma just hung her head and said

Papa was a rolling stone, (my son)
Where ever he laid his hat was his home
And when he died, all he left us was alone
Hey Papa was a rolling stone, (dad gumma it)
Where ever he laid his hat was his home
And when he died, all he left us was alone

Hey Momma,
I heard Papa called himself a jack of all trades
Tell me is that what sent Papa to an early grave
Folks say Papa would beg, borrow, steal
To pay his bills
Hey Momma,
Folks say Papa never was much on thinking
Spent most of his time chasing women and drinking
Momma I’m depending on you, to tell me the truth
Momma looked up with a tear in her eye and said, son

Papa was a rolling stone, (well, well, well, well)
Where ever he laid his hat was his home
And when he died, all he left us was alone (lone, lone, lone, alone)
Papa was a rolling stone,
Where ever he laid his hat was his home
And when he died, all he left us was alone

(I said) Papa was a rolling stone, (yes he was my son)
Where ever he laid his hat was his home
And when he died, all he left us was alone
(My daddy was, yes he was, yeah he was)
(Papa was a rolling stone,
Where ever he laid his hat was his home)

(Stevie Wonder & Syreeta Wright)

I never dreamed you’d leave in summer
I thought you would go then come back home
I thought the cold would leave by summer
But my quiet nights will be spent alone

You said there would be warm love in springtime
That was when you started to be cold
I never dreamed you’d leave in summer
But now I find myself all alone

You said then you’d be the life in autumn
Said you’d be the one to see the way
I never dreamed you’d leave in summer
But now I find my love has gone away

Why didn’t you stay?

(Edward Holland Jr., Lamont Dozier, Brian Holland)

Standing in the shadows of love
I’m getting ready for the heartaches to come
Can’t you see me standing in the shadows of love
I’m getting ready for the heartaches to come

I wanna run but there’s no way to go
‘Cause heartaches will follow me I know
Without your love, a love I need
It’s the beginning of the end for me

‘Cuz you’ve taken away all of my reasons for living
When you pushed aside all the love I’ve been giving
Now wait a minute

Didn’t I treat you right, now baby didn’t I
Didn’t I do the best I could, now didn’t I, didn’t I?

So don’t you leave me standing in the shadows of love
I’m getting ready for the heartaches to come
Don’t you see me standing in the shadows of love
Trying the best to get ready for the heartaches to come

All alone I’m destined to be
With misery my only company
It may come today, and it might come tomorrow
But it’s for sure I’ve ain’t got nothing but sorrow

Now won’t your conscience kinda bother you
How can you watch me cry after all I’ve done for you?
Now hold on a minute

Gave you all the love I had, now didn’t I
When you needed me I was always there, now wasn’t I

Standing in the shadows of love
Getting ready for the heartaches to come
I’m trying not to cry out loud
You know cryin’, it ain’t gonna help me none

What did I do to cause all this grief?
Now what did I say to make you wanna leave?
Now wait a minute

I gave my heart and soul to you now didn’t I
And didn’t I always treat you good now didn’t I

I’m standing in the shadows of love
I’m getting ready for the heartaches to come
Don’t you see me standing in the shadows of love
Trying the best to get ready for the heartaches to come

Oh, I’m standing in the shadows of love

(Curtis Mayfield)

I’ve been trying hard to forget
That you’ve been cheating
Wishin’ you I’d never met
‘Cause you’ve been cheating

Can’t you know lies can be seen in your eyes
And from wrong you’ll never be free
While you sit cryin’, you’ve been lyin’
You’ve been cheatin’, cheatin’ on me

Yeah, you made me suspect and I know
You don’t want me
Cookies crumble, and that’s how it goes
You don’t want me

Can’t you know lies can be seen in your eyes
And from wrong you’ll never be free
While you sit cryin’, you’ve been lyin’
You’ve been cheatin’, cheatin’ on me

Another lover you discover
Our love’s gone and I don’t know why
It’s just as well, though at last I do know
All you said was just a lie

So I’m trying hard to forget
That you’ve been cheating
Wishin’ you I’d never met
‘Cause you’ve been cheating

Can’t you know lies can be seen in your eyes
And from wrong you’ll never be free
While you sit cryin’, you’ve been lyin’
You’ve been cheatin’, cheatin’ on me

Ooh, ooh, baby – you’ve been cheating
You must not love me – you’ve been cheating
You must not want me – you’ve been cheating
You just don’t care

(William « Smokey » Robinson)

If it’s love that you’re running from, there’s no hiding place.
(You can’t run, you can’t hide, you can’t run, you can’t hide)
Love has problems I know but they’re problems, we’ll just have to face.
Oh yeah, yeah.
If you just put your hand in mine,
We’re gonna leave all our troubles behind.
Keep on walkin’, don’t look back. (Don’t look back)
And don’t look back. Oh yeah, yeah.
And don’t look back, baby. (Don’t look back)
(The past is behind you, let nothing remind you.)

If your first lover broke your heart,
There’s something that can be done.
(You don’t run, you don’t hide, you don’t run, you don’t hide)
Don’t end your faith in love because of what he’s done.
So if you just put your hand in mine,
We’re gonna leave all our troubles behind.
Keep on walking, don’t look back. (don’t look back)
Forget about the past now.
Don’t look back, baby. (don’t look back)
Keep on walking and don’t look back. Hmmm (don’t look back)
(The past is behind you, let nothing remind you)

[Instrumental]

Love can be a beautiful thing.
Though your first love let you down.
Oh yeah, yeah
‘Cause I know we can make love bloom, baby.
The second time around.
Oh yeah, yeah
So if you just put your hand in mine,
We’re gonna leave all our troubles behind.
Keep on pushing and don’t look back. (don’t look back)
Now, till I say, we won’t look back, girl. (don’t look back)
Keep on walking and won’t look back. (don’t look back)
Forget about the past now, baby.
And don’t look back.
Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, don’t look back.

(William « Smokey » Robinson)

I don’t like you but I love you
Seems that I’m always thinking of you
Oh ho ho, you treat me badly
I love you madly, you’ve really got a hold on me
You really got a hold on me
You really got a hold on me
You really got a hold on me

Baby, I don’t want you but I need you
Don’t want to kiss you but I need to
Oh ho ho, you do me wrong now
My love is strong now, you’ve really got a hold on me
You really got a hold on me
You really got a hold on me
You really got a hold on me

Baby, I love you and all I want you to do
Is just hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me
Tighter, tighter

I want to leave you, don’t want to stay here
Don’t want to spend another day here
Oh ho ho, I want to split now
I just can quit now, you’ve really got a hold on me
You really got a hold on me
You really got a hold on me
You really got a hold on me

Baby, I love you and all I want you to do
Is just hold me, please, hold me, squeeze, hold me, hold me

You really got a hold on me
You really got a hold on me
You really got a hold on me
You really got a hold on me

(Phil Spector, Peter Anders & Vincent Poncia Jr.)

Do I want you for my baby?
Do I want you by my side?
Do I wanna run & kiss your lips
& say you’re my lovin’ guy?
Oh oh oh (oh oh) oh oh oh (oh oh oh)
(Do I love you? Yes I love you)

Do I need your arms around me?
Do I live my life for you?
Do I always feel so warm each time
I look in your eyes of blue?
Oh oh oh (oh oh) oh oh oh (oh oh oh)
(Do I love you? Yes I love you) oh oh

& do I need you every minute of the day?
& would I die if you should ever go away?
& does it mean so much to feel your tender touch?
Do I love you? Do I love you?

Oh I swear I’m gonna get you
If it takes me all my life
I’ll hope & pray & dream & sleep
‘Cause I’m gonna be your wife
Oh oh oh (oh oh) oh oh oh (oh oh oh)
(Do I love you? Yes I love you)

(repeat & fade)
(Do I love you? Yes I love you)

(Brian Holland, Edward Holland Jr. & Lamont Dozier)

(Lamont Dozier, Brian Holland & Edward Holland Jr.)

Darlin’, darlin’
If I could have you to call my very own
I work my fingers through the bone, I am alone
To you I’d always come home

‘Cause there’s something about you, baby
That makes me keep loving you
There’s something about you, baby
Makes me love you just a little bit more
Truly does, just a little bit more

Sweet sweet thing, I’m satisfied
Sweet sweet thing, you set my soul on fire
I need you, yeah, badly
No matter what price I have to pay
‘Cause without you, darlin’, I’d worry hard
I love you anyway

‘Cause there’s something about you, baby
That makes me keep loving you
There’s something about you, baby
Makes me love you just a little bit more
Truly does, just a little bit more

Sweet sweet thing, I’m satisfied
Sweet sweet thing, you’re my only desire

I’m just your puppet on a string
And tears sometimes it brings
But do me any way you wanna when you wanna
I’ll keep you just the same

‘Cause there’s something about you, baby
That makes me keep loving you
There’s something about you, baby
Makes me love you just a little bit more
Truly does, just a little bit more

You’re a real heartbreaker
You will never let me sit down
There’s something about you, baby
That shakes me all up inside
You’re a real heartbreaker
And I need you just the same
[Incomprehensible]

(Brian Holland, Lamont Dozier, Edward Holland Jr.)

Love is here
And oh, my darling, now, you’re gone
Love is here
And oh, my darling, now, now, you’re gone

You persuaded me to love you
And I did but instead of tenderness
I found heartache instead

Into your arms I fell
So unaware of the loneliness
That was waiting there

You closed the door to your heart
And you turned the key
Locked your love away from me

Love is here
And oh, my darling, now, you’re gone
You made me love you
And oh, my darling, now, you’re gone

You said loving you
Would make life beautiful
With each passing day

But as soon as love
Came into my heart
You turned and you walked
Just walked away

You stripped me of my dreams
You gave me faith, then took my hope
Look at me now

Look at me
See what loving you has done to me
Look at my face
See how cryin’ has left it’s trace

After you made me all your own
Then you left me all alone
You made your words sound so sweet
Knowing that your love I couldn’t keep

My heart cries out for your touch
But you’re not there
And the lonely cry fades in the air

Love is here
And oh, my darling, now, you’re gone
Love is here
And oh, my darling, now, you’re gone

You made me love you
Oh, my darling, now, you’re gone
You made me love you
Ooh, oh, oh, my darling, now, you’re gone

(Stevie Wonder & Ivy Jo Hunter)

I remember yet before we met
When every night and day
I had to live the life of a lonely one.
And I remember meeting you,
Discovering love could be so true
When shared by two, ‘stead of only one.

When you said you loved me
We could not be parted.
Said, I built my world around you
And I’m truly glad I found you

Because loving you has made my life sweeter than ever.
I never felt so good before.
Loving you has made my life sweeter than ever.
Yes it has, you know it has.

Each night I pray we’ll never part
Because the love within my heart
Grows stronger from day to day.
Best I try, hard I try
To reassure and satisfy.
You know I’d be lost if you went away.

[Bridge:]
Because loving you has made my life sweeter than ever.
Yes it has, I know it has.
Loving you has made my life sweeter than ever.

[Bridge:]
Because loving you has made my life sweeter than ever.
I never felt so good before.
Loving you has made my life sweeter than ever.
Yes it has, you know it has.
Loving you has made my life sweeter than ever.
Don’t you know my baby there.
Loving you has made my life sweeter than ever.

(Warren Moore, Robert Rogers, William « Smokey » Robinson & Marvin Tarplin)

Honey, you do me wrong but still I’m crazy about you
Stay away too long and I can’t do without you
Every chance you get, you seem to hurt me more and more
But each hurt makes my love stronger than before

I know flowers grow through rain
But how can love grow through pain

Ain’t that peculiar
A peculiarity
Ain’t that peculiar, baby
Peculiar as can be, oh

You tell me lies that should be obvious to me
But I’m so much in love with you baby ’til I don’t want to see
But that things you do and say are designed to make me blue
It’s a dog gone shame my love for you makes all your lies seem true

But if the truth makes love last longer
Why do lies make my love stronger

Ain’t that peculiar, baby
Peculiar as can be
Ain’t that peculiar
A peculiarity, yeah yeah

I cried so much just like a child that’s lost his toy
Maybe baby, you think these tears I cry are tears of joy
A child can cry so much until you do everything they say
But unlike a child, my tears don’t help me to get my way

I know love can last through years
But how can love last through tears

Ain’t that peculiar, baby
Peculiar as can be
Ain’t that peculiar, honey
Peculiar as can be

Said, « I don’t understand it, baby »
It’s so strange sometimes
Ain’t that peculiar, darlin’
Oh

(Robert Rogers, Warren Moore, Marvin Tarplin & William « Smokey » Robinson)

Going to a go go, everybody
Going to a go go, c’mon now

Going to a go go
Don’t you wanna go
And that’s alright, tell me, yeah
That’s alright, yeah

(Edward Holland Jr., Lamont Dozier & Brian Holland)

Running around the corridors
Blood on the walls
Blood on the floors
And your brain is full of fear
Evil laughs and dreadful cries
Nowhere to run nowhere to hide
Seems like death is standing near

[CHORUS]
Nowhere to run
Nowhere to run
What the hell is going on

There’s killer behind you back
Just waiting for attack
And your heart is beating fast
Your body’s shaking, you’re going insane
Something’s going on in your brain
Death will overtake you at last

[CHORUS]

The might is over, the dawn is breaking
All night long you have been waiting
It’s cleaning up inside your head
You think you’re safe, you’re feeling high
But you’re wrong I’ll tell you why
Nobody escapes the castle of death

[CHORUS]

(Curtis Mayfield)

I wanna talk about my baby, yeah, yeah
With her pretty smile, yeah, yeah
She’s ’bout to drive me crazy, yeah, yeah
Makes my heart beat wild

So everybody say, yeah, yeah, yeah
Everybody say, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, everybody say, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I want to talk about my baby, yeah, yeah
She does the walk real nice, yeah, yeah
There’s no questions about maybe
For her, I’d make any sacrifice

So everybody say, yeah, yeah, yeah
Let me hear you say, yeah, yeah, yeah
Let me hear you say, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

And when she walks that walk
I can’t help but feel that she’s for real
And when she talks that talk
I can’t quite explain just how I feel
Talking about my baby

I want to talk about my baby, yeah, yeah
To me, she’s everything, yeah, yeah
She might fuss and call me lazy
But to her, I’m still the king

So everybody say, yeah, yeah, yeah
Well, everybody say, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, everybody say, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Talking about my baby
You know we’re talking about my baby
Talking about my baby
No one else but me

My baby and me
She’s my baby, oh
[Incomprehensible]

(Marvin Gaye, Ivy Jo Hunter, William Stevenson)

OK, talk to you
South America, Australia, France, Germany, UK, Africa

Calling out around the world
Are you ready for a brand new beat
Summer’s here and the time is right
For dancing in the streets

They’re dancing in Chicago
Down in New Orleans
In New York City

All we need is music, sweet music
There’ll be music everywhere
They’ll be swinging, swaying, records playing
Dancing in the street, oh

It doesn’t matter what you wear, just as long as you are there
So come on, every guy, grab a girl, everywhere, around the world
They’ll be dancing, dancing in the street

It’s an invitation across the nation, a chance for folks to meet
They’ll be laughing and singing, music swinging
Dancing in the street

Philadelphia, PA
Baltimore in DC now
Don’t forget the motor city
On the streets of Brazil
Back in the USSR
No matter where you are

All we need is music, sweet music
There’ll be music everywhere
They’ll be swinging, swaying, records playing
Dancing in the street, oh

It doesn’t matter what you wear
Just as long as you are there
So come on every guy, grab a girl, everywhere, around the world
They’ll be dancing, dancing in the streets

Way down in L.A., everyday
Dancing in the streets
Cross in China too
Me and you
Dancing in the street

Don’t you know
They’ll be dancing
Dancing in the street
Dancing in the street

(Gerry Goffin & Carole King)

I think I’m going back
to the things I learned so well in my youth
I think I’m returning to
the days when I was young enough to know the truth

Now there are no games to only pass the time
No more electric trains, no more trees to climb
Thinking young and growing older is no sin
And I can play the game of life to win

I can recall a time
when I wasn’t ashamed to reach out to a friend
Now I think I’ve got
a lot more than my toys to lend

Now there’s much to do than watch my sailboat glide
And every day can be my magic carpet ride
A little bit of freedom is all we lack
So catch me if you can, I’m going back

A little bit of courage is all we lack
So catch me if you can, I’m going back
Going back

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

(Collins)

(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)

(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.

Je ne commente que les chansons chantées par Philou, et vu qu’il y a énormement de versions différentes de ce disque, je me contente de ce que j’ai. Note pour le listing des chansons : à cause de toutes les versions existantes je ne met qu’une fois (comme pour Tarzan) les chansons.
Bon le disque en lui même : le disque est très agréable, mais peu surprenant. C’est au choix des ballades lentes ou rythmées, mais des ballades. Et ça sens un peu le réchauffé. Surtout niveau des paroles : franchement le « I’ll be there for you, you’ll be there for me » de Welcome, on l’a déjà vu, notamment dans « Testify » (la chanson)… Pareil pour le titre de la chanson « Look Through My Eyes » alors que déjà il y avait un « Through My Eyes » sur « Testify » (l’album cette fois !). Il n’en reste pas moins que les chansons sont bonnes (ma préférence allant à On My Way et au final de Look Through My Eyes) et que le disque est indispensable pour tout fan qui se respecte !

(Collins)

There are things in life you’ll learn and
In time you’ll see
Cause out there somewhere
It’s all waiting
If you keep believing
So don’t run, don’t hide
It will be all right
You’ll see, trust me
I’ll be there watching over you

Just take a look through my eyes
There’s a better place
somewhere out there
Just take a look through my eyes
Everything changes
You’ll be amazed what you’ll find
If you look through my eyes

There will be times on this journey
All you’ll see is darkness
Out there somewhere daylight finds you
If you keep believing

So don’t run, don’t hide
It will be all right
You’ll see, trust me
I’ll be there watching over you

Just take a look through my eyes
There’s a better place
somewhere out there
Just take a look through my eyes
Everything changes
You’ll be amazed what you’ll find
If you look through my eyes

All the things that you can change
There’s a meaning in everything
And you will find all you need
There’s so much to understand

Just take a look through my eyes
There’s a better place
somewhere out there
Just take a look through my eyes
Everything changes
You’ll be amazed what you’ll find
If you look through my eyes

Take a look through my eyes

(Collins)

When the earth was young
and the air was sweet
And the mountains kissed the sky
In the great beyond, with its many paths
Man and nature lived side by side

In this wilderness of danger and beauty
Lived three brothers, bonded by love
Their hearts full of joy
they ask now for guidance
Reaching out to the skies up above

Great Spirits of all who lived before
Take our hands and lead us
Fill our hearts and souls
with all you know
Show us that in your eyes
we are all the same
Brothers to each other
In this world we remain truly
brothers all the same

Give us wisdom to pass to each other
Give us strength so we understand
That the things we do
the choices we make
Give direction to all life’s plans

To look in wonder
at all we’ve been given
In a world that’s not always as it seems
Every corner we turn
only leads to another
A journey ends, but another begins

Great Spirits of all who lived before
Take our hands and lead us
Fill our hearts and souls
with all you know
Show us that in your eyes
we are all the same
Brothers to each other
In this world we remain truly
brothers all the same

Brothers all the same

(Collins)

There’s nothing complicated about the
way we live
We’re all here for each other, happy to give
Proud of who we are
Humbled beneath the stars

We’ve everything we need
The moon, the sun
There is more than enough here for everyone
All we have we share
And all of us we care, so come on

Welcome to our family time
Welcome to our brotherly time
We’re happy giving and taking to the
friends we’re making
There’s nothing we won’t do

Welcome to our family time
Welcome to our happy to be time
This is our festival, you know and best of all
We’re happy to share it all

There’s a bond between us, nobody can explain
It’s a celebration of life,
and seeing friends again
I’d be there for you
I know you’d be there for me too…
so come on

Welcome to our family time
Welcome to our brotherly time
We’re happy giving and taking to the
friends we’re making
There’s nothing we won’t do

Welcome to our family time
Welcome to our happy to be time
This is our festival, you know and best of all
We’re happy to share it all

Remembering loved ones departed
Someone dear to your heart
Finding love, and planning a future
Telling stories and laughing with friends
Precious moments you’ll never forget

This has to be the most beautiful
The most peaceful place I’ve ever been to
It’s nothing like I’ve ever seen before
When I think of how far I’ve come,
I can’t believe it…and yet I see it
In them I see family
I see the way we used to be

Come on…

Welcome to our family time
Welcome to our brotherly time
We’re happy giving and taking to the
friends we’re making
There’s nothing we won’t do

Welcome to our family time
Welcome to our happy to be time
This is our festival, you know and best of all
We’re happy to share it all

We’re here to share it all

(Single Version) (Collins)

Everywhere I turn, I hurt someone
But there’s nothing I can say to change
the things I’ve done
Of all the things I hid from you
I cannot hide the shame
And I pray someone, something will come
to take away the pain

There’s no way out of this dark place
No hope, no future
I know I can’t be free
But I can’t see another way
I can’t face another day

Tell me where, did I go wrong
Everyone I loved, they’re all gone
I’d do everything differently
but I can’t turn back the time
There’s no shelter from the storm
inside of me

There’s no way out of this dark place
No hope, no future
I know I can’t be free
But I can’t see another way
I can’t face another day

I can’t believe the words I hear
It’s like an answer to a prayer
When I look around I see
This place, this time, this friend of mine

I know its hard but you
found somehow
To look into your heart and
to forgive me now
You’ve given me the strength to see
just where my journey ends
You’ve given me the strength
to carry on

I see the path from this dark place
I see my future
Your forgiveness has set me free
On and I can see another way
I can face another day!

I see the path, I can see the path
I see the future
I see the path from this dark place
I see the future

I see the path, I can see the path
I see the future

(Collins)

Tell everybody I’m on my way
New friends and new places to see
With blue skies ahead yes
I’m on my way
And there’s nowhere else
that I’d rather be

Tell everybody I’m on my way
And I’m loving every step I take
With the sun beating down yes
I’m on my way
And I can’t keep this smile off my face

‘Cause there’s nothing like seeing
each other again
No matter what the distance between
And the stories that we tell
will make you smile
Oh it really lifts my heart

So tell ’em all I’m on my way
New friends and new places to see
And to sleep under the stars
Who could ask for more
With the moon keeping watch over me

Not the snow, not the rain
Can change my mind
The sun will come out, wait and see
And the feeling of the wind in your face
Can lift your heart
Oh there’s nowhere I would rather be

‘Cause I’m on my way now-
well and truly
I’m on my way now

(I’m on my way now)

Tell everybody I’m on my way
And I just can’t wait to be there
With blue skies ahead yes
I’m on my way
And nothing but good times to share

So tell everybody I’m on my way
And I just can’t wait to be home
With the sun beating down yes
I’m on my way
And nothing but good times to show
I’m on my way

Yes, I’m on my way

(Collins)

Everywhere I turn, I hurt someone
But there’s nothing I can say
to change the things I’ve done
I’d do anything within my power
I’d give everything I’ve got
But the path I seek is hidden
from me now

Brother Bear, I let you down
You trusted me, believed in me
and I let you down
Of all the things I hid from you
I cannot hide the shame
And I pray someone, something will
come, to take away the pain

There’s no way out of this dark place
No hope, no future
I know I can’t be free
But I can’t see another way
I can’t face another day

(Collins)

Come with me, I’ll take you now
To a place that you fear
For no reason why
Your heart has turned away from me
And I will make you understand

Everything will become clear to you
When you see things through
another’s eyes
Everything will become clear to you
Whatever’s meant for you, you will find

Come with me, I’ll take you there
To a place where you’ll see
Everything you need to be the one
you need to be
And all of those things that you feared
Will disappear from you in time

Everything will become clear to you
When you see things through
another’s eyes
Everything will become clear to you
Whatever’s meant for you, you will find

4/5

Bon alors : Testify. C’est excellent. C’est du très très bon Phil. Avec sa nouvelle voix, celle qu’on lui connait depuis Dance into the light et Tarzan, sauf que par moment elle est éraillée !! C’est surprenant de sa part, lui qui a été toujours si cristallin même quand il hurlait… C’est très proche de Both Sides musicalement, Phil utilise plein de BAR sur ce disque, contrairement à Dance into the light, plein de grosse batterie dont il a le secret. Quasiment pas de cuivre… Évidemment, c’est musicalement irreprochable. Je suis d’accord avec Phil quand il dit que c’est un disque qui contient quelques unes de ses meilleures chansons… Testify par exemple, qui est le gros morceau du disque : mélodie envoutante et hypnotique, arrangements magnifique, très lent, très posé, qui décolle progressivement, la batterie entre, frappe… argh 🙂 C’est le In the air tonight du 21ème siècle… Mes préfèrences vont ensuite à This Love, This Heart qui est une grande ballade avec une mélodie géniale et des changements de tonalités bien ammenés et Thru my eyes, pour l’ambiance et le coté optimiste de la chanson… Donc voilà, pour être franc, je n’attendais pas autant de ce disque, mais Phil c’est Phil, faut pas en douter :))) Je m’attendais à un truc chiant et plein de chansons d’amour ennuyante (suite à un mariage et à une naissance…), à l’eau de rose tout le temps, et ben non… Franchement, c’est un disque excellent, avec quelques petites points faibles, mais rien de bien grave, parce qu’ils s’intègrent bien dans le disque…

Tracklist

(Collins)

This is your wake up call… young hearts be free

Get up, get on, get out about and shout it
Tell ’em all you’re dressed and on your way
Oh there’s absolutely no doubt about it
This is your wake up call
You’re gonna miss it all

Am I the only one out there that’s listening
Cos it’s such a lovely noise that I can hear
Eyes are opening up to all around them
This is their wake up call
They’re gonna miss it all

Can you feel what’s happening here
Everything is changing all around you
It’s in the air, electricity
Everybody, yes everybody’s waking up
Good morning to you

You’re not the only one out there who’s running
But the man who’s sitting next to you’s asleep
So pick him up and shake him till he hears you
This is his wake up call
He’s gonna miss it all

Can you feel what’s happening here
Everything is changing all around you
It’s in the air, electricity
Everybody, yes everybody’s waking up
Good morning to you

Those who’ve done all they can do sleep easy
Those that turn away, they sleep alone
But there’s no doubt about it absolutely
This is a wake up call
We’re gonna miss it all

This is your wake up call
This is your wake up call
This is your wake up call
You’re gonna miss it
You’re gonna miss it all

(Collins)

I’ll try to make the sun shine brighter for you
I will even play the fool if it makes you smile
I’ll try to make you laugh if there’s a tear in your eye
After all is said
After all is done
I’d do anything for you

Come with me, close your eyes
Hold my hand, it’ll be alright
Don’t be scared, don’t be shy
Lift your head it’s gonna be alright

I’ll try to make the stars shine brighter for you
And I’ll take you on my shoulders, hold you way up high
I’ll even chase the rainbow hanging in the sky
Cos after all is said
After all is done
I’d do anything for you

Come with me, close your eyes
Hold my hand, it’ll be alright
Don’t be scared, don’t be shy
Lift your head it’s gonna be alright

Through the eyes of innocence
You will find, you will see
There’ll come a time it all makes sense
And you won’t know, but it will show inside, deep inside

Come with me, close your eyes
Hold my hand, it’ll be alright
Don’t be scared, don’t be shy
Lift your head it’s gonna be alright

I’ll try to make the days last longer for you
From the daybreak, ’til the sunset, ’til the end of time
I’ll keep you safe, away from the heartache
Cos when all is said
And when all is done
I’d do anything for you

Come with me, close your eyes
Hold my hand, it’ll be alright
Don’t be scared, don’t be shy
Lift your head it’s gonna be alright

(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

(Collins)

Don’t get me started on politicians
And the lies they spread
Don’t even mention sex and religion
And who they take to bed
But if you see me running down the street
Know where I’m running to
I’m tired of honesty being denied us
I’m coming looking for you

Don’t hold me down, I’m on my way
And nothing’s gonna turn me round
Don’t turn around, give it to me straight
I’m on my way and nothing’s gonna shake me
I’ll hold my ground
Wild horses won’t make me

Don’t get me started on information
Magazines and T.V.
There’s one man under his big umbrella
While it’s raining on you and me
Everyday it’s getting harder to judge
Fiction from fact
I’m tired of truth being denied me
It’s mine and I want it back

Don’t hold me down, I’m on my way
And nothing’s gonna turn me round
Don’t turn around, give it to me straight
I’m on my way and nothing’s gonna shake me
I’ll hold my ground
Wild horses won’t make me

Business as usual in our pressure steamer
Where reality slips from view
They say that we can’t take it
I think I can, can you?

Don’t get me started on blood and thunder
with people flying blind
Not caring what or who they take with them
Or what they leave behind
It’s one mans god against another
While the river of tears roll by
The things they do in the name of their father
Can someone tell me why

Don’t hold me down, I’m on my way
And nothing’s gonna turn me round
Don’t turn around, give it to me straight
I’m on my way and nothing’s gonna shake me
I’ll hold my ground
Don’t get me started

(Collins)

The sun is rising in the sky
Here we’re waiting, standing by
Round in circles, round and round
Pulse is racing, can’t sit down
The noise of people fills the air
Search for silence goes nowhere
Time just passes, starts to rain
I look at you and I feel your pain

Day after day watching it grow, counting the time
In each and every way the pleasure is mine
Through all of the high times
Through all of the low times
The farther we reach, the farther we see
The farther we go

Time after time waiting for you, when will you come
Wanting to play the game we’ve begun
Through all of the high times
Through all of the low times
The more we can give, the more we can keep
The more there will be

Like the man said he was right
’bout something coming in the air tonight
Well if it’s coming, let it be now
I feel it’s close, I just know somehow
I can’t hold on much longer
My head is filled with wonder
But if these things don’t come to pass
I’ll bring you water and fill your glass

Everyday the stronger it grows, it’s easy to see
Getting to feel how good it can be
Through all of the high times
Through all of the low times
The more that we teach, the better we learn
The better we’ll be

(Collins)

Gently rolling Father time
Is calling to him now,
And though he hears him
He looks out to sea.
Somewhere out there lie his dreams
A story with no ending
And till he finds his answers
He won’t be going nowhere

For him, it’s not too late
It’s not too late
For some it’s never too late

Quietly knocking on her door.
He patiently stands waiting,
And though she hears him
She sits steadfast in her chair.
Somewhere out there never seen
Her hopes and dreams lie waiting,
And till she finds an answer
She won’t be going nowhere

For her, it’s not too late
It’s not too late
For some it’s never too late

For everything we know that’s certain
There is much we cannot see,
So we choose to close the curtain,
Never knowing what could have been

It’s not too late, it’s not too late, never too late

Slowly rocking the baby’s bed
He strokes it’s head and whispers
And though it hears him,
It keeps smiling and kicks it’s feet
Somewhere out there is a life,
A lifetime made for living
So it holds on fast, it ain’t going nowhere

For some it’s not too late,
It’s not too late
For some it’s never too late
For some it’s not too late
It’s not too late
For some its never too late

(Collins)

This love, this heart, these arms to hold
So tight to you, I won’t let go
Can this be real, or just some dream that feels so true
I wish you love, I wish you more
You are all that I live for
I’ll never hurt you believe me
My heart beats just for you
It only beats for you

I’ll keep the fire alight for you
Can’t think of nothing else, what can I do
This lonely heart of mine, it only beats for you
It only beats for you

You bring me peace, you make me smile
You give me strength and all the while
You ask for nothing, only love
And my heart beats just for you
It only beats for you

I’d say all these things to you
If you were here, but that’s not gonna be
COs you ‘re not here at all
There’s only me
But I won’t stop trying

I won’t give up, I’ll wait for you
‘Til you come back, it’s all I can do
I’ll be right here, I’m going nowhere without you
Give me the chance, just make the call
Just say the words, I’m waiting for
Just let this heart of mine show you
It only beats for you

Yes it only beats for you
It only beats for you
This love, this heart
These arms, they’re only for you
This love, this heart
These arms, they’re only for you
They’re only for you

(Collins)

No matter where you go I’ll be there
No matter where you hide I’ll find you
I’ll be there looking through the window watching everything you do
There’s no escaping me
I’ll be like your worst enemy
I’m right behind you every place you run to I’ll be there with you

COs being without you is driving me crazy
Oh I just don’t know what to do
Yes being without you is driving me crazy
COs all I want is you ….
And I like it

If all the world’s a stage and we are,
We’re only just two crazy players
Please understand why I just can’t go on without you anymore
There’s no escaping me
I want you back, can’t you see
I’m losing all control and cannot guarantee my sanity

COs being without you is driving me crazy
And I don’t know what to do
Yes being without you is driving me crazy
COs all I want is you
Being without you is driving me crazy
I don’t know how long I’ll last
Being without you is driving me crazy
Feel my pulse it’s going so fast

You, you’re driving me crazy
Me, I’m out of my mind
You, you’re making me crazy
Me, I’m running out of time

I am your conscience, I’m your guide
I know just what you feel inside
I share your darkest thoughts with you but share no consequences for them
There’s no escaping me
I’m with you while you sleep
I hear your lies, I hear your truth
I hear you speak before you do

But being without you is driving me crazy
and I don’t know what to do
Yes being without you is driving me crazy
COs all I want is you
Being without you is driving me crazy
I don’t know how long I’ll last
Being without you is driving me crazy
Feel my pulse it’s going so fast

(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

(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)

It’s never where you think you’ll find it
The thing you think you’re looking for
It could take you all your lifetime
And still you’d never quite be sure

You could look everywhere
Because you know it’s there
Somewhere beneath the sky
But too close and you’ll get burned
There’s no lesson learned
Yet some people pass it by

You’ll see things different when you look thru my eyes
Things are different if you see what I see
Just look closely and you’ll see thru my eyes
It could be different, you’ll see how it could be,
If you can see

You may need help to find your way home
Those who brought you here have flown
The road you take is full of hope or sadness
The choice you make will be your own

But you’re not alone in there
Just say hello in there
Cos there are many just like you
They’ll help you find someway
To make it all the way
They’ll tell you all you have to do

You’ll see things different when you look thru my eyes
Things are different if you see what I see
Just look closely and you’ll see thru my eyes
It could be different, you’ll see how it could be,
If you can see

No one warns you of the heartache
No one can hide you from the storm
But from the shadows there will come the sunshine
A place to dry and keep you warm

Though no one tells you how
Your hearts beating faster now
Getting stronger day by day

Suddenly it’s clear, what you seek is near
It’s what you learn along the way

Its never where you think you’ll find it
The thing you think you ‘re looking for
Well it could take you all your lifetime
Still you’ll never quite be sure
You’ll find it, just look closer

(Collins)

Somehow you reach in and you touch my heart
Somehow you reach in, you touch my soul
When I look at you, I see everything we could be

Eyes wide open, looking at me
What can I offer you that you’ve never seen
Just don’t be afraid, someone is watching
You will see

Somehow when you smile the day seems brighter
Somehow when you smile you melt my heart
When I look at you I see all things we should be

And in your darkest hour, hold out your hand for me
Something will guide you, I’ll be beside you
And when its rough out there, I’m with you everywhere
I will be right behind you if you should fall

Someday you will find everything you look for
Someday you will find a love like mine
When you smile at her you will feel the things you could be

Eyes wide open, looking at me
What can I offer you that you’ve never seen
Just don’t be afraid, someone is watching
You will see, you will see

Somehow you reach in and you touch my heart
Somehow you reach in, you touch my soul
When I look at you, I see everything we could be

5/5

C’est court (5 morceaux en fait) mais c’est très bon. Les textes semblent parfois niais, mais il faut garder le contexte du dessin animé (c’est censé être une maman singe qui élève un garçon dans You’ll be in my heart alors forcement…). La batterie est excellente, bref du très grand Phil Collins et il n’y a pas grand chose de plus à dire… Si ce n’est que ma préférence va a Son of Man…

Tracklist

(Collins)

Put your faith in what you most believe in
Two worlds, one family
Trust your heart
Let fade decide
To guide these lives we see

A paradise untouched by man
Within this world blessed with love
A simple life, they live in peace

Softly tread the sand below your feet now
Two worlds, one family
Trust your heart
Let fade decide
To guide these lives we see

Beneath the shelter of the trees
Only love can enter here
A simple life, they life in peace

Raise your head up
Lift high the load
Take strength from those that need you
Build high the walls
Build strong the beams
A new life is waiting
But danger’s no stranger here

No words describe a mother’s tear
No words can heal a broken heart
A dream is gone, but where there’s hope

Somewhere something is calling for you
Two worlds, one family
Trust your heart
Let fade decide
To guide these lives we see

(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)

Oh, the power to be strong
And the wisdom to be wise
All thise things will
come to you in time
On this journey that you’re making
There’ll be answers that you’ll seek
And it’s you who’ll climb the mountain
It’s you who’ll reach the peak

Son of man, look to the sky
Lift your spirit, set it free
Some day you’ll walk tall with pride
Son of man, a man in time you’ll be

Though there’s no one there to guide you
No one to take your hand
But with faith and understanding
You will journey from boy to man

Son of man, look to the sky
Lift your spirit, set it free
Some day you’ll walk tall with pride
Son of man, a man in time you’ll be

In learning you will teach
and in teaching you will learn
You’ll find the place beside the
ones you love
Oh, and all the things you dreamed of
The visions that you saw
Well, the time is drawing near now
It’s yours to claim it all

Son of man, look to the sky
Lift your spirit, set it free
Some day you’ll walk tall with pride
Son of man, a man in time you’ll be

Son of man
Son of Man’s a man for all to see

(Collins)

(Instrumental)

(Collins)

Whatever you do, I’ll do it too
Show me everything and tell me how
It all means something
And yet nothing to me

I can see there’s so much to learn
It’s all so close and yet so far
I see myself as people see me
Oh, I just know there’s something
bigger out there

I wanna know, can you show me
I wanna know about these
strangers like me
Tell me more, please show me
Something’s familiar about these strangers like me

Every gesture, every move that she makes
Makes me feel like never before
Why do I have
This growing need to be beside her

Ooo, these emotions I never knew
Of some other world far beyond this place
Beyond the trees above the clouds
I see before me a new horizon

I wanna know, can you show me
I wanna know about these
strangers like me
Tell me more, please show me
Something’s familiar about these strangers like me

Come with me now to see my world
Where there’s beauty beyond your dreams
Can you feel the things I feel
Right now, with you
Take my hand
There’s a world I need to know

I wanna know, can you show me
I wanna know about these
strangers like me
Tell me more, please show me
Something’s familiar about these strangers like me

…I wanna know

4/5

J’ai hésité à mettre 5 étoiles, mais il faut dire qu’à la longue, ca se ressemble beaucoup et que c’est certainement lassant. Ceci dit, je ne connais rien au Jazz et je n’aime pas le Jazz en général. Pourtant, j’aime ce disque. PC et son Big Band revisitent des classiques de Jazz, mais aussi les morceaux de PC et de Genesis. Et ceux ci sont méconnaissables, il faut lire le nom du titre pour être sûr de soi ! Sauf pour Against all odds et The Los Endos Suite qui sont quand même fortement identifiables. Ma préférence va définitivement pour Invisible Touch qui est merveilleusement interprétée, à la limite d’être émouvante (si si, je parle bien d’Invisible Touch). PC voulait se faire plaisir avec son Big Band, non seulement il y est arrivé, mais en plus il est arrivé à me faire plaisir (je n’ose pas dire qu’il a fait plaisir a tout ceux qui ont écouté le disque alors…) Je n’avais qu’une peur c’est que les morceaux ne supportent pas le passage au Jazz.. Il n’en est rien et ce disque fait tout sauf musique d’ascenceur.

Là aussi, 4 étoiles pour un Greatest Hits, ca peut paraître beaucoup, mais il faut dire ce qui est, c’est un bon Greatest Hits, qui rempli bien son rôle, à savoir réunir les plus gros succès de susceptibles de séduite un auditeur occasionnel. Nullement fait pour les fans. D’où la note… Ceci dit, cette compilation nous permet enfin d’avoir les quatre titres inédits en version studio dont j’ai parlé pour Serious Hits… Live. Ainsi qu’un inédit ;True Colors, reprise de Cindy Lauper qui ne casse franchement pas la baraque… Pour le reste, pas de surprise.

Tracklist

(Collins)

She calls out to the man on the street
« Sir, can you help me?
It’s cold and I’ve nowhere to sleep,
Is there somewhere you can tell me? »

He walks on, doesn’t look back
He pretends he can’t hear her
Starts to whistle as he crosses the street
Seems embarrassed to be there

Oh think twice, it’s another day for
You and me in paradise
Oh think twice, it’s just another day for you,
You and me in paradise

She calls out to the man on the street
He can see she’s been crying
She’s got blisters on the soles of her feet
Can’t walk but she’s trying

Oh think twice…

Oh lord, is there nothing more anybody can do
Oh lord, there must be something you can say

You can tell from the lines on her face
You can see that she’s been there
Probably been moved on from every place
‘Cos she didn’t fit in there

Oh think twice…

(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

Easy lover
She’ll get a hold on you believe it
Like no other
Before you know it you’ll be on your knees
She’s an easy lover
She’ll take your heart but you won’t feel it
She’s like no other
And I’m just trying to make you see

She’s the kind of girl you dream of
Dream of keeping hold of
You’d better forget it
You’ll never get it
She will play around and leave you
Leave you and deceive you
Better forget it
Oh you’ll regret it

No you’ll never change her, so leave it, leave it
Get out quick cos seeing is believing
It’s the only way
You’ll ever know

Easy lover
She’ll get a hold on you believe it
Like no other
Before you know it you’ll be on your knees
She’s an easy lover
She’ll take your heart but you won’t feel it
She’s like no other
And I’m just trying to make you see

You’re the one that wants to hold her
Hold her and control her
You’d better forget it
You’ll never get it
For she’ll say there’s no other
Till she finds another
Better forget it
Oh you’ll regret it

And don’t try to change her, just leave it, leave it
You’re not the only one, ooh seeing is believing
It’s the only way
You’ll ever know, oh

No don’t try to change her, just leave it, leave it
You’re not the only one, ooh seeing is believing
It’s the only way
You’ll ever know, oh

She’s an easy lover (she’s a easy lover)
She’ll get a hold on you believe it (get a hold on you)
(She’s) like no other
Before you know it you’ll be on your knees (you’ll be down on your knees)
She’s an easy lover
She’ll take your heart but you won’t feel it (you won’t feel it)
She’s like no other
And I’m just trying to make you see (trying to make you see)

(Holland/Dozier/Holland)

I need love, love
ooh, ease my mind
And I need to find time
someone to call mine;

My mama said
You can’t hurry love
No, you’ll just have to wait
She said love don’t come easy
But it’s a game of give and take
You can’t hurry love
No, you’ll just have to wait
Just trust in a good time
No matter how long it takes

How many heartaches must I stand
Before I find the love to let me live again
Right now the only thing that keeps me hanging on
when I feel my strength, ooh, it’s almost gone

I remember mama said
You can’t hurry love
No you’ll just have to wait
She said love don’t come easy
It’s a game of give and take
How long must I wait
How muck more must I take
Before loneliness
Will cause my heart, heart to break?

No, I cant bear to live my life alone
I grow impatient for a love to call my own
But when I feel that I, I can’t go on
Well these precious words keep me hanging on

I remember mama said
You can’t hurry love
No, you’ll just have to wait
She said love don’t come easy
Well, it’s a game of give and take
You can’t hurry love
No, you’ll just have to wait
Just trust in a good time
No matter how long it takes, now break!

Now love, love don’t come easy
But I keep on waiting
Anticipating for that soft voice
To talk to me at night
For some tender arms
hold me tight
I keep waiting
Ooh, till that day
But it ain’t easy (Love don’t come easy)
No, you know it ain’t easy

My mama said
You can’t hurry love
No, you’ll just have to wait
She said love don’t come easy
It’s a game of give and take…

(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…

(Collins)

You know I never meant to see you again
and I only passed by as a friend
All this time I stayed out of sight
I started wondering why

Now I, I wish it would rain down, down on me
Yes I wish it would rain, rain down on me now

You said you didn’t need me in your life
I guess you were right
Well I never meant to cause you no pain
But it looks like I did it again

Now I, I wish ….

Though your hurt is gone, mines hanging on, inside
And I know it’s eating me through every night and day
I’m just waiting on your sign

‘Cos I know, I know I never meant to cause you no pain
And I realize I let you down
But I know in my heart of heart of hearts
I know I’m never gonna hold you again

Now I…

(Collins)

(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/Stuermer)

We had a life, we had a love,
But you don’t know what you’ve got ’til you lose it
Well that was then and this is now
And I want you back
How many times do I have to say I’m sorry

How can something so good go so bad
How can something so right go so wrong
I don’t know, I don’t have all the answers
But I want you back
How many times can I say I’m sorry

You can run, and you can hide
But I’m not leaving less you come with me
We’ve had our problems but I’m on your side
You’re all I need, please believe in me

I only wanted someone to love
But something happened on the way to heaven
It got a hold of me and wouldn’t let go
And I want you back
How many times do I have to say I’m sorry

You can run…

They say you can’t take it with you
When you go
And I believe it
But taking what I’ve got or being
here with you, you know
I’d rather leave it

You can run…

(Bishop)

(Released as Phil Collins & Marilyn Martin single, 1985)

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

(Collins)

‘Though we might hate to admit it, there are always two sides to every story…’


Find yourself in the gutter in a lonely part of town
where death waits in the darkness with a weapon to cut some stranger down
sleeping with an empty bottle, he’s a sad and an empty hearted man
all he needs is a job, and a little respect, so he can get out while he can

We always need to hear both sides of the story

A neighbourhood peace is shattered it’s the middle of the night
young faces hide in the shadows, while they watch their mother and father fight
he says she’s been unfaithful, she says her love for him has gone
and the brother shrugs to his sister and says « looks like it’s just us from now on »

We always need to hear both sides of the story

And the lights are all on, the world is watching now
people looking for truth, we must not fail them now
be sure, before we close our eyes
don’t walk away from here
’til you hear both sides

Here we are all gathered in what seems to be the centre of the storm
neighbours once friendly now stand each side of the line that has been drawn
they’ve been fighting here for years, but now there’s killing on the streets
while small coffins are lined up sadly, now united in defeat

We always need to hear both sides of the story

And the lights are all on, the world is watching now
people looking for truth, we must not fail them now
be sure, before we close our eyes
don’t walk away from here
’til you see both sides

White man turns the corner, finds himself within a different world
ghetto kid grabs his shoulder, throws him up against the wall
he says « would you respect me if I didn’t have this gun
‘cos without it, I don’t get it, and that’s why I carry one »

We always need to hear both sides of the story

(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

(Collins)

There’s this girl that’s been on my mind
All the time, Sussudio oh oh
Now she don’t even know my name
But I think she likes me just the same
Sussudio oh oh

Oh if she called me I’d be there
I’d come running anywhere
She’s all I need, all my life
I feel so good if I just say the word
Sussudio, just say the word
Oh Sussudio

Now I know that I’m too young
My love has just begun
Sussudio oh oh
Ooh give me a chance, give me a sign
I’ll show her anytime
Sussudio oh oh

Ah, I’ve just got to have her, have her now
I’ve got to get closer but I don’t know how
She makes me nervous and makes me scared
But I feel so good if I just say the word
Sussudio just say the word
Oh Sussudio, oh

Ah, she’s all I need all of my life
I feel so good if I just say the word
Sussudio I just say the word
Oh Sussudio I just say the word
Oh Sussudio I’ll say the word
Sussudio oh oh oh
Just say the word

(Collins)

It’s there in the eyes of the children
In the faces smiling in the windows
You can come on out, come on open the doors
Brush away the tears of freedom

Now we’re here, there’s no turning back
We have each other
We have one voice

Hand in hand we will lay the tracks
Because the train is coming to carry you home

Come dance with me
Come on and dance into the light
Everybody dance into the light

There’ll be no more hiding in shadows of fear
There’ll be no more chains to hold you
The future is yours – you hold the key
And there are no walls with freedom

Now we’re here, we won’t go back
We are one world
We have one voice

Side by side we are not afraid
Because the train is coming to carry you home

Come dance with me
Come on and dance into the light
Everybody dance into the light

Do you see the sun – it’s a brand new day
Oh, the world’s in your hands, now use it
What’s past is past, don’t turn around
Brush away the cobwebs of freedom

Now we’re here, there’s no turning back
You have each other
You have one voice

Hand in hand you can lay the tracks
Because the train is coming to carry you home

Come dance with me
Come on and dance into the light
Everybody dance into the light

(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 can feel it coming in the air tonight, Oh Lord
I’ve been waiting for this moment, all my life, Oh Lord
Can you feel it coming in the air tonight, Oh Lord, Oh Lord

Well, if you told me you were drowning
I would not lend a hand
I’ve seen your face before my friend
But I don’t know if you know who I am
Well, I was there and I saw what you did
I saw it with my own two eyes
So you can wipe off the grin, I know where you’ve been
It’s all been a pack of lies

And I can feel it coming in the air tonight, Oh Lord
I’ve been waiting for this moment for all my life, Oh Lord
I can feel it in the air tonight, Oh Lord, Oh Lord
And I’ve been waiting for this moment all my life, Oh Lord, Oh Lord

Well I remember, I remember don’t worry
How could I ever forget, it’s the first time, the last time we ever met
But I know the reason why you keep your silence up, no you don’t fool me
The hurt doesn’t show; but the pain still grows
It’s no stranger to you or me

And I can feel it coming in the air tonight, Oh Lord…

(Collins)

Take that look of worry
I’m an ordinary man
They don’t tell me nothing
So I find out what I can
There’s a fire that’s been burning
Right outside my door
I can’t see but I feel it
And it helps to keep me warm
So I, I don’t mind
No I, I don’t mind

Seems so long I’ve been waiting
Still don’t know what for
There’s no point escaping
I don’t worry anymore
I can’t come out to find you
I don’t like to go outside
They can’t turn off my feelings
Like they’re turning off a light
But I, I don’t mind
No I, I don’t mind
Oh I, I don’t mind
No I, I don’t mind

So take, take me home
Cos I don’t remember
Take, take me home
Cos I don’t remember
Take, take me home
Cos I don’t remember
Take, take me home, oh lord
Cos I’ve been a prisoner all my life
And I can say to you

Take that look of worry, mine’s an ordinary life
Working when it’s daylight
And sleeping when it’s night
I’ve got no far horizons
I don’t wish upon a star
They don’t think that I listen
Oh but I know who they are
And I, I don’t mind
No I, I don’t mind
Oh I, I don’t mind
No I, I don’t mind

So take, take me home
Cos I don’t remember
Take, take me home
Cos I don’t remember
Take, take me home
Cos I don’t remember
Take, take me home, oh lord
Well I’ve been a prisoner all my life
And I can say to you

But I don’t remember
Take, take me home…

Quatre étoiles ! Oui, ça peut paraître beaucoup, mais trois c’était insuffisant. PC est de retour, il a quitté Genesis, il va bien, il est joyeux et ça s’entend. Trop content de pouvoir rejouer de la batterie (il pensait ne plus pouvoir en jouer après avoir joué pendant la tournée Both Sides avec un poignet cassé (il a dit souffrir le martyr chaque fois qu’il frappait la caisse claire et je le crois !). Son médecin lui avait dit que l’os était mort), il a tout joué sur une vraie batterie et pas une seule BAR sur ce disque ! Ça sonne parfois très PC (That’s what you said, Love Police, Oughta know by now) mais rien de bien embêtant. Dance into the light, la chanson titre est une bombe, pareil pour Lorenzo et d’autres comme River so Wide). Lorenzo justement, écrit en hommage à un gamin Africain atteint d’Adrenoleucodystrophie et dont la mère a envoyé les paroles à PC pour qu’il en fasse une chanson. PC a sorti de ses tiroirs des rythmes africains (ça s’entend aussi sur River so wide, d’ailleurs, on a la même impression sur la BO de Tarzan). Au milieu de tout ca, on a deux ballades superbes : It’s in your eyes et surtout The same moon. On trouve aussi une bonne petite chanson qui bouge bien (Take me down) ainsi qu’une chanson rigolote : Wear my hat. Pour finir, PC fait une très belle reprise du classique de Bob Dylan : The times they are a-changin’. En le réorchestrant et en jouant de la cornemuse dessus. Sacrilège pour certains, pas pour moi.

I remember the night you weren’t at home
Had to work late is what I heard
That’s what you said
I can never forget the way it felt,
you needed some time to work it out,
that’s what you said
and now I feel a fool.

‘Cos late at night I call your name,
I’m wondering what for,
‘cos I’ve seen those other guys
sniffin’ around your door.

Whatever happened to the words
‘Lovers for all eternity?’
That’s what you said,
I was your Romeo, you were my Juliet,
eternally
that’s what you said
and now I feel a fool.

‘Cos late at night I hear your voice
calling out my name,
oh I know it’s just a dream
but every night’s the same.

I carried a torch for you, through the thick and thin
you know it don’t seem right that I won’t see you again
No no

Late at night I call your name,
I’m wondering what for,
‘cos I keep seeing those other guys
sniffin’ around your door.

I carried a torch for you through the wind and rain
I’ll never forget you, but I won’t see you again
No no

I thought your friends all liked me
I thought I fitted in just right,
that’s what you said.
Soon I’ll be gone and you’ll be free,
you can go find the things that you want.
That’s what you said
and I won’t feel a fool

‘cos late at night I still call your name,
I’m wondering what for,
‘cos I keep seeing those other guys
sniffin’ around your door.

What for?

(Music – Collins/Lyrics – Michaela Odone)
Once upon a time I made a lion roar –
he was sleeping in the sunbeams on the old zoo floor.
I had gone to see the park where my papa used to play,
it’s called called Villa Borghese and it’s on the way
to East Africa.

Down on Grand Comoro Island, where I grew past four,
I could swim and fish and snorkel on the ocean floor,
and the wind laughed, and the wind laughed through the trees as if to say,
here’s a child who’ll want the world to go his way
in East Africa, in East Africa.

Suddenly for me the world turned upside down –
far from my friends the lions and the dolphins came this awful sound.

Dark shadows, sounds of thunder raging over me,
came this monster called ‘A-dre-no-leu-ko-dys-tro-phy’
Where’s my East Africa?

Well they said, they said, they said (the ones who know it all)
they said from now on for you there will be no more standing tall,
so I took my parents’ hands, I lifted my head to say
I’ll just have to be a hero, there’s no other way!
Back to East Africa
Back to East Africa
Back to East Africa
Come with me I’m going back, going back to East Africa.

(Collins)
Father comes home ‘cos his money’s run out –
seems a little loose tonight, he starts to shout.

Dinner’s not on the table, seems mother’s not able,
she’s staring at the TV.

You can smell it on his breath, feel it in his touch,
he never meant to hit her hard, but he’s like that when he’s had too much.

It’s just another story ’bout going too far,
it’s just another story ’bout going too far.

Well the kid’s at school, she’s getting good grades,
but the peer pressure’s starting now – too bad, she had it made.

Seems there’s always someone trying to push you to do something, you know, ain’t the way they told you to –
it’s hard to see
the things you taught her, how to be, it’s like you told her nothing, selective memory.

Come on try it, it’s just a smoke, ain’t gonna kill you, so she takes a toke –
fade to grey.

It’s just another story ’bout going too far,
it’s just another story ’bout going too far.

Well the guys at work seemed OK, they’d buy you a drink, get you laid, what’s wrong with that?

Why’d they have more money than you, expensive cars, expensive clothes, d’you ever think of what they do?

At night they’re out, shakin’ people down, when they’re walking together seems they own the town.

But hey, who’s gonna talk, you are their alibi, don’t turn around, don’t ask questions, just walk –

It’s just another story ’bout going too far,
it’s just another story ’bout going too far.

(Collins)

Sometimes I lie awake, wondering if I’ll make it out of here,
but the wind blows round my heels, so I stay
I remember lying there, wishing I could be someone else
trying to find somehow to get away.

If I asked him nicely d’you think he’s show me how to fly,
‘cos the dust has weighed my wings down, and I’m too tired to try.

Sometimes I sit here hearing voices in my head
I try to understand, to make some sense.
I wonder if I had to, would I lie to save myself?
A plea of guilty, but self defence.

If I asked him nicely d’you think he’d show me how?
I’m sure he’s out there listening, but he’s too tied up right now to try

Try, all of my sins
‘cos I can’t stop now,
just don’t leave me behind.

Sometimes I lie awake, wondering if I’ll get out of here,
but the words stick in my throat and I stay.
I remember lying there, wishing I could be someone else,
trying to find somehow to get away

If I asked him nicely d’you think he’s show me how to fly,
‘cos the dust has weighed my wings down, and I’m too tired to try.

(Collins)

She came looking for me with her arms open wide,
like some long lost friend of mine.

She said ‘Excuse me, but do you remember me ?’
I said ‘No, I don’t believe I do’
So she looked me up and down
and undressed me with her eyes,
then she said ‘You’ve got everything I need, you’ve got everything I want’

So I said ‘OK,

you can wear my hat,
you can have my coat,
you can take my shirt
‘cos I don’t need it.
You can wear my shoes,
you can take my socks,
come on take my bag it’s yours

If you love it,
you can have it if you love it,
ain’t no problem if you love it,
come on take it if you love it.

So her friend came up to me
with a pen and paper in her hand,
expressing some interest in the number of my room,
She said ‘Excuse me, but do you remember me? ‘
I said ‘No,’ she said ‘Can I appeal to you?’

So I looked her up and down
and realising her insinuations I blushed
she said ‘Listen babe you don’t know me,
no you don’t know me but you owe me,

and I love you,
yes I love you,
put your arms around me ‘cos I love you,
I got all your records and I love you’

So I suggested

you can wear my hat,
you can have my coat,
you can take my shirt
‘cos I don’t need it.
You can wear my shoes,
you can take my socks,
come on take my bag it’s yours

If you love it,
you can have it if you love it,
ain’t no problem if you love it,
come on take it if you love it.

Well later on that day this guy came to me
with a scrap of paper in his hand
he said ‘Hey buddy can you sign your name for me?’
I said ‘Why, do I owe you money?’ He said ‘No’
I said ‘Listen pal do I know you? Have we ever met?
Why do you want my name on this little piece of paper?

He said ‘I love you,
I don’t know you but I love you,
like my brother I love you,
put your arms around me ‘cos I love you’

I said ‘Hey let’s not rush things

you can wear my hat,
you can have my coat,
you can take my shirt
‘cos I don’t need it.
You can wear my shoes,
you can take my socks,
come on take my bag it’s yours

If you love it,
you can have it if you love it,
ain’t no problem if you love it,
come on take it if you love it.

You can wear my hat,
You can wear my hat,
You can wear my hat,
Come on wear my hat.’

(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.

(Collins)

You oughta know by now
that a man can’t hold on forever,
so why do you keep waiting here
when you know it makes me want you more?

You oughta know by now
how it fells to be loved,
so why d’you keep me hanging here,
with this stone around my heart, dragging me down, down, down

when all I’m trying to do is trying to get next to you, let me in, let me in.

You oughta know by now
or maybe someone should show you
that a man needs to be loved
and even in this man’s world
with you it don’t come easy

You oughta know by now
that no man can sleep at night
with a burning in his heart
that would tear this man apart
take me out of my misery,

‘cos all I’m trying to do is trying to get next to you, let me in, let me in.

You oughta know by now
just how good it feels to be wanted,
and no man could love you more,
so why can’t you show me something,
just a little bit of something?

You oughta know by now
all the things a man has to do in his life,
and all these things I do
you know that I do it all for you, I do it all for you.

‘Cos all I’m trying to do is trying to get next to you,
yes all I’m trying to do is trying to get next to you.

Let me in, let me in,
Let me in your heart.

(Collins)

Seems I’ve lingered too long in the darkness
unlock the door, turn the light on and wait.
I should know better than to rest on a promise
but this body before you has seen too much pain.

Take me down, take me down to the water,
take my hand, learn me all I should know.
Here I am, I’m waiting for you
just give me a sign, oh feet please don’t fail me now.

It’s at this time we feel the emotion,
nothing is wasted, nothing is lost.
I’m sure that I’ve been here before sometime
some bridges are reached but never are crossed.

Take me down, take me down to the water,
take my hand, learn me all I should know.
Here I am, I’m waiting for you
just give me a sign, oh feet please don’t fail me now.

Take me down, take me down to the water,
take my hand, learn me all I should know.
Here I am, I’m waiting for you
just give me a sign, oh feet please don’t fail me now.

Don’t fail me now
‘cos it’s out of my control.
I’m coming with you,
I’m right beside you,
oh feet don’t fail me now.

Seems I’ve lingered too long in the darkness
unlock the door, turn the light on and wait.
I should know better than to rest on a promise
but this body before you has seen too much pain.

Take me down, take me down to the water,
take my hand, learn me all I should know.
Here I am, I’m waiting for you
just give me a sign, don’t let me go.
Take me down, take me down to the water,
take my hand, learn me all I should know.
Here I am, I’m waiting for you
just give me a sign, oh feet please don’t fail me now.

(Collins)

When the daylight comes and I look across the room,
I see you’re gone.
As the morning breaks and I reach to hold your hand
I can see, see I’m the only one.
Well, your clothes are gone and your bags are packed
but the bed’s still warm where you lay
now I need your love to come shining through
to carry me, come carry me away.

If you choose a time, I’ll catch the moon
I’ll see you there
from wherever I am, wherever you are
we’ll find somewhere.
I see the same stars in the same sky
shining down on you,
I’ll be looking up from wherever I am
and it’s you I’ll see if you’re looking too.

There’ll be days that’ll seem much longer,
some nights will seem so cold,
But I see hope on the horizon
and it’s gotta come soon – please don’t be too long,
don’t be too long.

If you choose a time, we can catch the moon
I’ll see you there
Whenever it is, from wherever you are
oh we’ll find, yes we’ll find somewhere.
are you looking at the same moon?

(Collins)

If we can cross at the place that divides us.
cross the river, the river so wide,
if we can smother the pain that’s inside us,
deny the demons that wait by our side,
we can find, find the light

Our nights are filled with the light of the same moon,
we share the comfort of the same stars.
Our days are bright with the light of the same sun,
that don’t matter, can’t you see what we are,
what we are, what we become?

Keep our sights on the way ahead,
don’t look back, it won’t help us now.
The storm we left so far behind
seems a dark memory that starts to fade,
but till we see the light we will not be safe.

We all sink or swin in the same ocean,
break our skin and we will bleed
our minutes pass with the same motion,
we face the same danger, we share the same needs,
we’re all the same, you and me.

Keep our sights on the way ahead,
don’t look back, that won’t help us now.
Upstream, the river gets too wide
so we must build that bridge right here,
‘cos if we wait we will not reach the other side.
See under that clear blue sky
the winds of change are blowing hard and long,
and they’ll not stop to rest ‘cos the change is gonna come

Our nights are filled with the light of the same moon,
we share the comfort of the same stars.
Our days are bright with the light of the same sun,
that don’t matter, can’t you see what we are,
what we are, what we become?

Keep our sights on the way ahead,
don’t look back, it won’t help us now.
‘cos upstream the river gets too wide
and if we don’t build that bridge right here, right now,
you know we’ll never ever reach the other side.

(Collins)

Well it’s a long, long road when you’re out there alone,
no matter what side you’re on,
but there’s a heart of gold behind the smile
and it brought me to where I belong.

‘Cos I’d set my sights on finding you
and I’m staying forever, you know it’s true
Yes I’d set my sights on finding you
don’t be lonely tonight, we can make it alright

No matter what you say,
no matter who you are,
love always finds a way
finds a way to your heart.

Well it’s a cold lonely road, but you can survive
no matter which way you choose,
and as long as there’s life behind these eyes
I’m here with you, win or lose.

If you let your light shine on through
someone will come round to pull you through,
yes just let your light shine on through,
don’t be lonely tonight, you can make it alright.

Just hold my hand,
come with me a while, I’ll make you smile.
Just hold my hand
there’s someone who loves you, it’s me, oh it’s me.

No matter what you say,
no matter who you are,
love always finds a way
finds a way to your heart.

It’s alright that you cry if you’re lonely sometime,
no matter who’s by your side,
‘cos the love that you look for is inside us all,
but it’s something you have to find

And I’d set my sights on finding you
and I’m staying forever, you know it’s true.
Yes I’d set all my sights on findingyou
don’t be lonely tonight, we can make it alright.

No matter what you say,
no matter who you are,
love always finds a way
finds a way to your heart.

(Bob Dylan)

Come gather ’round people wherever you roam,
and admit that the waters around you have grown,
and accept it that soon you’ll be drenched to the bone
if your time to you is worth savin’
then you better start swimmin’
or you’ll sink like a stone
for the times they are a-changin’

Come writers and critics who prophecise with your pen
and keep your eyes wide,
the chance won’t come again,
and don’t speak too soon
for the wheel’s still in spin
and there’s no tellin’ who
that it’s namin’
for the loser now
will be later to win
for the times they are a-changin’

Come senators, congressmen,
please heed the call
don’t stand in the doorway,
don’t block the hall,
for he that’ gets hurt
will be he who has stalled,
there’s a battle
outside and it’s ragin’
it’ll soon shake your windows
and rattle your walls
for the times they are a-changin’

Come mothers and fathers
throughout the land,
and don’t criticize
what you can’t understand
your sons and your daughters
are beyond your command,
your old road is rapidly agin’,
please get out of the new one
if you can’t lend your hand
for the times they are a-changin’

The line it is drawn,
the curse it is cast,
the slow one now will
later be fast,
as the present now
will later be past
the order is rapidly fadin’
and the first one now
will later be last
for the times they are a-changin’

3/5

Dernier disque de PC alors qu’il est officiellement encore dans Genesis. Ce disque est un retour à l’ambiance Face Value sans cuivres. C’est celui que préfère PC, avant Face Value. Pourtant j’ai beaucoup de mal à me faire à ce disque. L’ambiance est étrange et mis à part quelques morceaux je n’accroche pas. Ce disque est une performance en lui même car PC y fait tous les instruments, chants, compositions, textes et production. Il ressort de ce disque quelques perles et beaucoup de morceaux que je trouve sans vie qui « sonnent » pareil et dont je ne connais même pas les noms par coeur ! (c’est dire !). Pourtant je n’arrive pas à dire que ce soit un mauvais disque… Peut être parce qu’il contient un des morceau que je préfère : We fly so Close. Derrière, il y a Both sides of the story puis We wait and we wonder, enfin Survivors and Everyday. A la limite We’re sons of our fathers et puis le reste c’est néant dans mon esprit.

Tracklist

(Collins)

‘Though we might hate to admit it, there are always two sides to every story…’


Find yourself in the gutter in a lonely part of town
where death waits in the darkness with a weapon to cut some stranger down
sleeping with an empty bottle, he’s a sad and an empty hearted man
all he needs is a job, and a little respect, so he can get out while he can

We always need to hear both sides of the story

A neighbourhood peace is shattered it’s the middle of the night
young faces hide in the shadows, while they watch their mother and father fight
he says she’s been unfaithful, she says her love for him has gone
and the brother shrugs to his sister and says « looks like it’s just us from now on »

We always need to hear both sides of the story

And the lights are all on, the world is watching now
people looking for truth, we must not fail them now
be sure, before we close our eyes
don’t walk away from here
’til you hear both sides

Here we are all gathered in what seems to be the centre of the storm
neighbours once friendly now stand each side of the line that has been drawn
they’ve been fighting here for years, but now there’s killing on the streets
while small coffins are lined up sadly, now united in defeat

We always need to hear both sides of the story

And the lights are all on, the world is watching now
people looking for truth, we must not fail them now
be sure, before we close our eyes
don’t walk away from here
’til you see both sides

White man turns the corner, finds himself within a different world
ghetto kid grabs his shoulder, throws him up against the wall
he says « would you respect me if I didn’t have this gun
‘cos without it, I don’t get it, and that’s why I carry one »

We always need to hear both sides of the story

(Collins)

‘No matter how much you think you want or need it, the past
has to remain just that, the past…’


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

(Collins)

‘Love can make you do things you never dreamed possible…’


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)

‘…I get along without you very well’ (Hoagy Carmichael. 1939)


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

(Collins)

‘It seems that family values have changed since I was a kid, at
least I remember it that way…’


When I grow up to be a man
like my father was when I was young
I hope i can make him so proud of me
Proud enough to call me his son

What makes these people so different now
what makes these times so strange?
seems most people got most everything they need
how come we see this change

Our sons and daughters seem to be beyond our control
their smile is fading fast, they’re losing their soul
when will we ever learn, yet I’m a believer

When I was a boy, did we have more respect?
this world seemed a nicer place to be
but time slowly passes and one day you look around
you hardly recognise what you see

Our sons and daughters seem to be beyond our control
their smile is fading fast, they’re losing their soul
now when will we ever learn, yet I’m a believer

They’re beyond our control

We’re all sons of our fathers
sometimes I feel like mine
and I can hear him say, the things I say
seems all things come around in time

Why these things happen we’ll never know
guess that was then and this is now
we always knew that change was gonna come
but I want to go back, please tell me how

Our sons and daughters seem to be beyond our control
their smile is fading fast, they’re losing their soul
when will we ever learn, yet I’m a believer

(Collins)

‘…To try to do the right thing…always the right thing.’


I’ve been doing some thinking, here on my own
it’s been on my mind
this debt I owe to you
I have to repay in kind

But I can’t find my way

Tired and weary, I follow the path
that leads to your door
but it occurred to me, all that I have
is already yours

But I can’t find my way

Oh, just to sit a while
Oh, just to sit and watch you smile

But I can’t find my way

Keep the faith you say
to keep the faith I pray
be strong you say
just follow the light

Wheels keep turning but the close I get
the farther I seem
peace will only come
finding the peace within

But I can’t find my way

(Collins)

‘…I never meant to break your heart, please forgive me.’


No I never meant to hold you back
I never meant to turn away
please forgive me

I never meant to break your heart
I’d give my last breath before I do
please forgive me

No I never meant to hold you down
I never meant to break your heart
somehow, somehow
we are survivors

No I never meant to hold you back
I never meant to turn away
here we are standing here
survivors in the night

No I never meant to break your heart
I’ll always be here for you
here’s my word, take my hand
survivors in the night

No I never meant to let you down
I’d give my last breath before I do
all I ever wanted was to be right here
survivors in the night

When all is said and done
we’ll find a way
to put all this behind us
we’ll find some way
‘cos you know that I won’t be leaving
yes I’m here and i won’t be leaving

No I never meant to cause you pain
no I never meant to hurt you
all I want to do now, is to try my best
survivors in the night

When all is said and done
we’ll find someday
we can forget all this
somehow, some way

And as long as I’m here
there’ll be no worries any more
and all these promises I’m making now
I’ll hold each day

So don’t ever. don’t ever, don’t forget
that I never, never meant to break your heart
all I ever wanted was to stand beside you
survivors in the night

We are survivors in the night

(Collins)

‘We never realise just how close we come to disaster
whether in love or everyday life…’


My harbour lights are fading fast
soon they’ll disappear
alone I sit in darkness
hoping someone might come near
though I wait, though I try
no one ever comes
and the feeling that I have flood over me
the river starts to run

We fly so close
we fly so close
sometimes we fly too close

Every place you run to, everywhere you turn
there are places that you know you should not go
but some bridges just won’t burn
all my life, though I try
I cannot change the past
and the ghosts that come back to haunt you
make you realise at last

We fly so close
we fly so close
sometimes we fly too close
we fly too close

My heart is racing much faster now
life passes before my eyes
something’s I see, they make me smile
something’s they make me cry
so I look, so I try to find
a lesson I can learn
the passing of time hasn’t changed my mind
and the ghosts I know return

You know we fly so close
we fly so close
sometimes we fly too close
we fly too close

We fly so close, you and I sometimes
sometimes we fly so close,
we’ll never know how many times
we fly so close
we fly so close

(Collins)

‘…There’s a place for us, somewhere a time and a place.’


So here we are together
just you and me
sitting side by side
don’t know why
with time just racing by
but I don’t want to go

Well I don’t know much about it
‘cos all I am is what you see
in front of you
there’s no more
feels so close and yet so far
but I don’t want to go

Here I am, take my hand
here I am, please take my hand

I’d like to sit here with you if that’s alright
if you don’t mind I could sit and stare all night
sit here waiting for you to hold me tight

It’s sad but I know it’s true
you see I know you well
you’d only laugh at me
and that would hurt me so
just look at me here
you’ve got me pleading with you
but i don’t want to go

‘Cos you know that I love you so
yes you know that I love you so

Here. I will be here love
for you love, I will always be here love

If you look real close
you’ll see my heart is on my sleeve
and it’ll be here waiting
waiting for you, waiting for me
someone once said that if you truly, truly believe
you can make things happen
make things appear to be all that they seem
tell me do you believe?

We’ll find a hideaway
together we’ll find a way
somewhere, somehow, we’ll find some way
there must be somewhere
there must be someplace
we can find somewhere
where they don’t know my face
believe me we can find it
yes we can find it
somewhere, there’s a place for us
somewhere, a time and a place for us
somewhere

(Collins)

‘To the outsider it seems that we in Britain live daily
under the cloud of terrorism. That familiarity sometimes
makes you think of it as almost normal, then suddenly
something will happen…’


We stand, hang our heads disbelieving
then not knowing how could such a thing be wrong
we wonder just what they must be thinking
to take a life of one so young

So tell me when will it be over now, how soon?
how far must we go, to prove to you?

We wait and we wonder how this happened
killing the old, the innocent, the young
while sons follow in fathers footsteps not understanding
that what they do could somehow be so wrong

So tell me when will it be over now, how soon?
how far must we go, to prove to you?

So we will wait and we’ll wonder

No regrets, no forgiveness, no compassion
these brave heroes only know to hit and run
slowly my sadness turns to rage and we wonder
how can these scars ever heal, when all is said and done

So tell me when will it be over now, how soon?
how many tears must fall to prove to you?
please tell me, when will it be over now, how soon?
and how far must they go, to prove to you?

So we wait and we wonder

(Collins)

‘…When all is said and done, there’s just you and me.’


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
