ANOTHER DAY IN PARADISE BY PHIL COLLINS

ANOTHER DAY IN PARADISE BY PHIL COLLINS

LYRICS

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, ’cause it’s just another day for you,
You and me in paradise, think about it
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
She can’t walk but she’s trying
Oh think twice, ’cause 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, think about it
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
Cause she didn’t fit in there
Oh think twice, ’cause another day for you and me in paradise
Oh think twice, it’s just another day for you,
You and me in paradise, just think about it, think about it
It’s just another day for you and me in paradise
It’s just another day for you and me in paradise, paradise
It’s just another day for you and me in paradise
It’s just another day for you and me in paradise, paradise
It’s just another day for you and me
It’s just another day for you and me
It’s just another day for you and me in paradise
In paradise

Baby making music
until the lyrics hit ya
then the loneliness smacks
that snare so sharp
makes ya think twice
ya spin in circles
dancing in the street
calling the name
tears on your cheeks
blistered feet
the pain runs deep
it’s enough
to make ya think twice.

A promised paradise
the other side of pain
an emergence
or backslide of gains?
Two steps forward
4 back
loneliness kind of hits ya
just like that.

-Curvy Red Gurl, 2019.

SEEKING A DISTANT PARADISE

The sun doesn’t leave me alone,
throwing hard shadows on a covered face.
Happiness is ever in the middle distance,
but rarely closer in my sad eyes,
& I’m too close to the poison regret of the city,
so I walk the rugged lines in Nature’s palm
praying for just one day in Paradise.

Sunrise smiles
to kiss the sky
all around misery
quivers in the breeze
my forlorn thoughts
ferments in a gentle wish
where sunbeams lights
a path for those
who in darkness screams..
a prelude of hope
in flowers bloom
to sprout beauty
in choices of fools.
