Phil Collins - Another Day In Paradise



"Another Day in Paradise" is a song recorded by English drummer and singer-songwriter Phil Collins. Produced by Collins along with Hugh Padgham, it was released as the first single from his number-one album ...But Seriously (1989). As with his song for Genesis, "Man on the Corner", the track has as its subject the problem of homelessness; as such, the song was a substantial departure from the dance-pop music of his previous album, No Jacket Required (1985).


The song's music video was directed by Jim Yukich. The video, shot entirely in black and white, features Collins singing in a dark background, interspersed with images of the homeless, the immigrants and the poverty of the chidrens in the streets. The music video also features many messages about the homeless, to convey the full message of the song.



Lyrics



She calls out to the man in the street

"Sir, can you help me?

It's gettin' cold and there's nowhere to sleep

Is there somewhere you can tell me?"


Oh, think twice

'Cause there's another day for you and me in paradise

Oh, think twice

'Cause there's another day for you

You and me in paradise


She calls out to the man in 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

It's just another day for you and me in paradise

Oh, think twice

'Cause it's another day for you

You and me in paradise


Oh, Lord

Is there nothing more any one of us can do?

Oh, Lord

Na, na-na, na, na-na-now


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 it's another day for you and me in paradise

Oh, think twice

'Cause it's another day for you

You and me in paradise

Paradise

Think about it

Paradise

Just think about it

Just think about it
