  • Easy lover
    She'll get a hold on you believe it
    Like no other
    Before you know it you'll be on your knees
    She's an easy lover
    She'll take your heart but you won't feel it
    She's like no other
    And I'm just trying to make you see

    She's the kind of girl you dream of
    Dream of keeping hold of
    You'd better forget it
    You'll never get it
    She will play around and leave you
    Leave you and deceive you
    Better forget it
    Oh you'll regret it

    No you'll never change her, so leave it, leave it
    Get out quick 'cause seeing is believing
    It's the only way
    You'll ever know

    Easy lover
    She'll get a hold on you believe it
    Like no other
    Before you know it you'll be on your knees
    She's an easy lover
    She'll take your heart but you won't feel it
    She's like no other
    And I'm just trying to make you see

    You're the one that wants to hold her
    Hold her and control her
    You'd better forget it
    You'll never get it
    For she'll say there's no other
    Till she finds another
    Better forget it
    Oh you'll regret it

    And don't try to change her, just leave it, leave it
    You're not the only one, ooh seeing is believing
    It's the only way
    You'll ever know, oh

    No don't try to change her, just leave it, leave it
    You're not the only one, ooh seeing is believing
    It's the only way
    You'll ever know, oh

    She's an easy lover (she's a easy lover)
    She'll get a hold on you believe it (get a hold on you)
    (She's) like no other
    Before you know it you'll be on your knees (you'll be down on your knees)
    She's an easy lover
    She'll take your heart but you won't feel it (you won't feel it)
    She's like no other
    And I'm just trying to make you see (trying to make you see) Writer/s: Philip James Bailey, Phil Collins, Nathan East

  • Seventhmist from 7th HeavenMy favorite song that has the name "Phil Collins" on it. But maybe that's because Bailey helped make it so great.
  • Joe from Grants Pass, OrHas anyone here seen the A&E Request show with Collins ? Totally ROCKS !!!
  • John from Fort Worth, TxI was always impressed with the sound of this song. I'm glad I can learn more about it here. I heard it on the radio tonight and I was determined to research it. What a fine collaboration of talent. Years ago, I was first impressed with the guitar sound. Tonight I was impressed with the drumming. Here, I learned who the different lead vocalists were. Neat!
  • Victor from Mexico City, MexicoAnd guitar solo is courtesy of Mr. Daryl Stuermer, a gifted talented musician, collaborator of Phil Collins since Steve Hackett left GENESIS. You can also hear another awesome guitar solo, on GENESIS' "The way we walk"... the "Jesus he knows me" live version is fantastic!
  • Jeff from Austin, Txit WAS an awesome guitar solo. Great song!!
  • Bertrand from Paris, FranceWhoever thought of throwing one of soul and funk's finest falsetto singers together with the very Caucasian Phil Collins must have received a glut of raised eyebrows and sideways glances upon his or her introduction of the idea. But somehow the odd pairing works wonders on this spirited mid-tempo rocker that the two artists also cowrote together. No one's ever accused Collins of not being a fine singer, but Bailey's presence helped reduce the passion deficit that plagued some of Collins' milquetoast solo performances like "Sussudio." Muscular guitar also helps make the most of each singer's stylistic strengths.
  • Brandon from Peoria, IlThis song has one of the best guitar solos i have ever heard.
