"Going Back" (2010)

Girl (Why You Wanna Make Me Blue) lyrics - Phil Collins

(originally by The Temptations)

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
Of sleepless nights I'm getting 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?
Oh oh girl, girl, girl, why you wanna make me blue?

(Love Is Like A) Heatwave lyrics - Phil Collins

(originally by Martha Reeves And The Vandellas)

Whenever I'm with him
Something inside
Starts to burnin'
And I'm filled with desire

Could it be the devil in me
Or is this the way love's supposed to be

Just like a heatwave
Burning in my heart
Can't keep from cryin'
It's tearing me apart

Whenever he calls my name
So slow, sweet and plain
I feel, yeah, yeah, well I feel that burning flame

Has my blood pressure got a hold on me
Or is this the way love's supposed to be

Just like a heatwave
Burning in my heart
Can't keep from cryin'
It's tearing me apart

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

But that doesn't mean it has me amazed
I don't know what to do, my head's in a haze

Just like a heatwave
Burning in my heart
Can't keep from cryin'
It's tearing me apart

Don't pass up this chance
This time it's a true romance

Heatwave

Uptight (Everything's Alright) lyrics - Phil Collins

(originally by Stevie Wonder)

Baby, ev'rything is all right, uptight, out of sight
Baby, ev'rything is all right, uptight, out of sight.

I'm a poorman's son, from across the railroad tracks,
The only shirt I own is hangin' on my back,
But I'm the envy of ev'ry 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 ev'rything is alright, uptight, out of sight.
Baby, ev'rything is 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 poorman's son.
She says give her the things that money can buy
But I'll never, never make my baby cry,

And it's all right, what I can't do,
Out of sight because my heart is true,
She says baby ev'rything is alright, uptight, clean out of sight.
Baby, ev'rything is alright, uptight, clean out of sight.
Baby, ev'rything is alright, uptight, ah ah ah ah,
Baby, ev'rything is alright, uptight, clean out of sight.
Baby, ev'rything is alright, uptight, clean out of sight.

Some Of Your Lovin' lyrics - Phil Collins

(originally by Dusty Springfield)

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'

In My Lonely Room lyrics - Phil Collins

(originally by Martha Reeves And The Vandellas)

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 and
Lay right down and cry

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

But in the public's eye
I just push behind
All my hurt inside
And pretend I don't mind

But in my lonely room
Tears I don't have to hide
In my lonely, lonely
Lonely, lonely room

I push my pride aside
And lay right down and cry
In my lonely room
In my lonely room
Let myself go... [fade]

Take Me In Your Arms (Rock Me A Little While) lyrics - Phil Collins

(originally by Kim Weston)

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

Take me in your arms, come on and rock me, and 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, now, I'm feeling mine

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

Take me in your arms, come on and rock me, and rock me a little while
Hold me darling, rock me, rock me a little while
I'm losing you and my happiness
My life is over, I must confess

I'll never, never see your smiling face no more
I'll never, never hear your knock on my door
Before you leave me, leave me behind
Please let me feel happy just one more time

Take me in your arms, come on and rock me, and rock me a little while
Hold me darling, and rock me, rock me a little while

I said I never wouldn't beg, I said I wouldn't plead
Here I am, baby, begging you please
Baby, baby, please, baby, baby, please

Baby, take me in your arms
Come on and rock me, and rock me a little while
Hold me darling

Blame It On The Sun lyrics - Phil Collins

(originally by 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

Yeh, yeh, yeh, ooh,
Your heart blames it on you this time

Papa Was A Rolling Stone lyrics - Phil Collins

(originally by The Temptations)

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, (my son)
Where ever he laid his hat was his home
And when he died, all he left us was alone

[Chorus]

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 them talking Papa doing some store front preachin'
Talked about saving souls and all the time reaching
Dealing in debt, and stealing in the name of the law
Momma just hung her head and said...

[Chorus 2x]

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...

[Chorus 4x]

Never Dreamed You'd Leave In Summer lyrics - Phil Collins

(originally by Stevie Wonder)

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?

Standing In The Shadows Of Love lyrics - Phil Collins

(originally by The Four Tops)

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

Do I Love You lyrics - Phil Collins

(originally by The Ronettes)

Here I am on bended knees
I lay my heart down at your feet
Now do I love you

All you have to do is ask
I'll give until there's nothing left
Do I love you

As long as there is life in me
Your happiness is guaranteed
I'll fill your heart with ecstasy, forever darling

Do I love you?
Do I love you?
Do I love you?
Indeed I do Indeed I do

The very thing that I want most
Is just to have and hold you close
Do I love you?

From early morning until late at night
You fill my heart with pure delight
Do I love you?

Whenever I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord your soul to keep
And bring you home safe to me, for ever darling

Do I love you?
Do I love you?
Do I love you?

Indeed I do, sweet darling, indeed I do

Now whenever I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord your soul to keep
And bring you home safe to me
For ever darling

Do I love you?
Do I love you?
Do I love you?
Indeed I do, little darling, indeed I do

Jimmy Mack lyrics - Phil Collins

(originally by Martha Reeves And The Vandellas)

Jimmy, Jimmy, oh Jimmy Mack, when are you coming back?
Jimmy, Jimmy, oh Jimmy Mack, when are you coming back?
My arms are missing you, my lips feel the same way too
I tried so hard to be true, like I promised I'd do
But this boy keeps coming around, he's trying to wear my resistance down

[Chorus:]
Hey Jimmy, Jimmy, oh Jimmy Mack, when are you coming back
Jimmy, Jimmy, oh Jimmy Mack, when are you coming back
He calls me on the phone, about three times a day
Now my heart's just listening to what he has to say
But this loneliness that I have within keeps reaching out to be his friend

[Chorus]

Need your loving, need your loving

[Instrumental break]

I wanna say, I'm not getting any stronger, I can't hold out very much longer
Trying hard to be true, but Jimmy, he talks just as sweet as you

[Chorus]

Need your loving, need your loving
Need your loving, need your loving...
(Jimmy, Jimmy, oh Jimmy Mack, when are you coming back)

[Repeats out]

Something About You lyrics - Phil Collins

(originally by The Four Tops)

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

Love Is Here And Now You're Gone lyrics - Phil Collins

(originally by The Supremes)

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
Oh, my darling
Now you're gone
