Album: ...But SeriouslyReleased: 1989Charted:
This song is about a relationship that has passed, perhaps because of cheating, but the singer reflects on everything that was said, and still hangs onto their relationship, even though he knows his chances of ever seeing them back together are less than likely.
This song was a #1 in Canada for 6 weeks, among other foreign Countries, and had a popular guitar part played by Eric Clapton and a lengthy music video which had actor Jeffrey Tambor as a musical director for a stage play harshly judging Phil's singing talent.
In a BBS interview Collins said with his tongue very much in his cheek that this song, "is about a frustrated weatherman that regularly predicts rain showers but never gets it right."
