Phil Collins: We Fly So Close + Lyrics

We Fly So Close

‘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

Phil Collins: Can’t Find My Way + Lyrics

Can’t Find My Way

‘…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
