Phil Collins – Another Day In Paradise

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , at 1:36 pm by LynxLee

As you guys would know, yesterday Robin Williams committed suicide. It is rather sad, especially when I have grown up watching almost every movie he has starred in. In fact, me and my wife finished watching “The Crazy Ones” just a day before the news broke. He did seem rather tired and depressed towards the end of the show. Yet, that series has GOT to be the most Under-Rated show on TV.

Robin Williams

While everyone is watching Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Walking Dead, Dexter, True Blood, Revenge, Orphan Black, The Blacklist and all the other violence related and sex related tv series; me and my wife wanted to watch good TV shows that portray good humor and not deal with all the issues of life.

The Crazy Ones was just what we loved to watch with all that intelligent quick wits. It’s such a shame that the show received negative reviews. I can’t blame them, they want more violence and sex (in which, I frankly think there are too much).

I often associate Robin Williams with the likes of Phil Collins because they are the mega stars, they are the best of the best and legends at everything they do. If there’s anyone I would look up to and possible be honored to meet, they would be the ones.

Anyhow; Rest in Piece, Robin Williams. We will always fans of your work. Oh, Think Twice.. It’s just another day for you and me in Paradise.

Phil_Collins_AnotherDayInParadiseHe 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
“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…

Phil Collins – Can’t Stop Loving You

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video tagged at 8:57 pm by LynxLee

I can’t stop..

Got your ticket
Got your suitcase
Got your leaving smile
Oh, I could say thats the way it goes
And I could pretend and you wont know
That I was lying

Because I cant stop loving you
(cant stop loving you)
No, I cant stop loving you
(I wont stop loving you)
No, I wont stop loving you
Why should I even try

So youre leaving
In the morning
On the early train
But I could say everythings alright
And I could pretend and say goodbye

Got your ticket
Got your suitcase
Got your leaving smile
Oh, I could say thats the way it goes
And I could pretend and you wont know
That I was lying

Because I cant stop loving you
No, I cant stop loving you
No, I wont 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 dont know

Feeling humble
Heard a rumble
On the railway track
And when I hear the whistle blow
I walk away and you wont know
That ill be crying

Because I cant stop loving you
No, I cant stop loving you
No, I wont stop loving you
Why should i

Even try
Ill always be here by your side (why why why)
I never wanted to say goodbye
Im always here if you change, change your mind

So your leaving
In the morning
On the early train
But I could say everythings alright
And I could pretend and say goodbye
But that would be lying,no

Because I cant stop loving you
(cant stop loving you)
No, I cant stop loving you
(I wont stop loving you)
No, I wont stop loving you
Why should I even try
Because I cant stop loving you
(cant stop loving you)
No, I cant stop loving you
(thats all I can do)
No, I wont stop loving you
Why should i
(why should I)
Why should i
(tell me why)
Why should I even try

Phil Collins – Do You Remember

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged at 3:37 am by LynxLee

I love this song. It’s a trip back to a place where love is common. A nostalgic feel to the whole rhythm. The lyrics brings forth my fears and truths. It’s like a care that’s just enough for what you could do. Maybe that’s what we have been here for. Just to care enough and not too much.

Sometimes too much love is a bad thing. Too much happiness is not good as well. We just need a little moderation in our life. That means to be sad or angry for a while, that may help. Just don’t get addicted to that feeling. Trust me, I know how it is. It ain’t easy. I can’t confirm I’ve gotten over it yet, but I certainly will not let this affect me. Even if it does, I guess there’s not much choice anyway.

This lyrics and a couple more songs.. it always makes me think.. to appreciate what we have now, as everything may not be the same soon. You’ll be happy knowing that you were happy then. And all it was is gonna be the reason why you’re happy next time.

I’m a little emotional tonight.. drank a little too much coffee and my brain’s kicking too much. So here I say, Good Night to all.

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

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

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

We never talked about it
But I hear the blame was mine
Id call you up to say Im sorry
But I wouldnt want to waste your time

cos I love you, but I cant take any more
Theres a look I cant 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
Its a look I know Ill never forget

You couldve come over to my side
You couldve let me know
You couldve tried to see the distance 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 cant wait
To get hurt again

Do you remember…?

There are things we wont recall
Feelings well never find
Its 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 wasnt one of those things
And now its too late

Do you remember…?

Phil Collins – Separate Lives

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged at 3:56 pm by LynxLee

You know how it feels like sometimes.. to know that we are happy, but at times; we just don’t know where we are? The simple feel of being lost.. after a good laugh. Like, you don’t know how to proceed. Not knowing what to do. Knowing, that there’s a lot that you just can’t take.. It’s like being tattooed.. you want something to remember by.. you want a love mark, or strength mark.. yet it hurts, it’s gonna leave a mark. Could be a nice mark, could be a bad one.. but it’s there. Just.. unsure and lost. This song makes me feel that way. Like, you want her; but you know it might not be right. Confusing, really. And the worse part is.. that’s all you can think about..

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

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

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
