In The Air Tonight Lyrics

I can feel it, comin' in the air tonight, oh Lord
I've been waitin' for this moment, all my life, oh Lord
Can you feel it comin' in the air tonight, oh Lord?
Oh Lord

Well if you told me you were drowning
I would not lend a hand
I've seen your face before, my friend
But I don't know if you know who I am?
Well I was there and I saw what you did
I saw it with my own two eyes
So you can wipe off that grin
Know where you've been
It's all been a pack of lies

And I can feel it comin' in the air tonight, oh Lord
I've been waitin' for this moment, all my life, oh Lord
I can feel it, in the air tonight, oh Lord, oh Lord
And I've been waitin' for this moment all of my life, oh Lord
Oh Lord

Well I remember, I remember, don't worry
How could I ever forget?
It's the first time and the last time we ever met
But I have know the reason why you keep your silence, oh
No you don't fool me
'Cause the hurt doesn't show
The pain still grows
It's stranger to you and me

I can feel it comin' in the air tonight, oh Lord
I've been waitin' for this moment for all my life, oh Lord
I can feel it comin' in the air tonight, oh Lord
I've been waitin' for this moment all my life, oh Lord oh Lord

I can feel it, comin' in the air tonight, oh Lord
I've been waiting for this moment all my life, oh Lord oh Lord
I can feel it, comin' in the air
I can feel it, comin' in the air
I've been waiting for this moment, all my life, my life
I can feel it, comin' in the air
I can feel it, comin' in the air
I've been waitin' for this moment, all my
Li aa aa aa aa aa aa aa aa aa aa aa aa aa aa aa aa aa aa aa aa aa aaa
I've been waitin' for this moment all my life, my life

this song has a different meaning to each. i think it means he knows a perennial liar, and that person is coming with more lies, but they can wipe off that grin, he knows where he's been, it's all been a pack of lies, cuz he can see it comin' in the air tonite!

Phil brought this guy to his concert to let him know that he knew he witnessed the drowning and did nothing

Me is right, it has no meaning, only an expression of anger as the drums symbolize. Anger from separation of his ex-wife.

The song is about don't ask for when Ur in the wrong whether relationship or otherwise. They don't make a song about a kid or girl that they knew read your bible

You heard utter crap. Phil confirmed himself that it is simply an expression of his frustration at the time about the divorce. That myth about an actual man dying or drowning is total nonsense.

I heard its about him witnessing a murder and sometime down the road he was on his boat and saw the same guy drowning. Phil then just sat there n watched him drown.

The truth is, the song was written after Collins wad inspired by the bittersweet love affair of Stonesy and Holly after he met them in a boozer in South Tyneside, UK.
