three-davids-24There isn’t anything special about these lyrics in terms of an association with David. For me, this is all about the melody, the voice, the sound – and how David might sound singing this. Enjoy!

 Phil Collins - ...Hits - In the Air Tonight

I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord

I’ve been waiting for this moment all my life, oh Lord

Can you feel it coming 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

And I was there and I saw what you did, I saw it with my own two eyes

So you can wipe off that grin, I know where you’ve been

It’s all been a pack of lies


And I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord

I’ve been waiting for this moment all my life, oh Lord

I can feel it in the air tonight, oh Lord, oh Lord

And I’ve been waiting for this moment all 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 know the reason why you keep your silence up, no you don’t fool me

Because the hurt doesn’t show, but the pain still grows

Some stranger to you and me


I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord

I’ve been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord

I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord

I’ve been waiting for this moment all my life, oh Lord, oh Lord


I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord

And I’ve been waiting for this moment all my life, oh Lord, oh Lord

I can feel it coming in the air, I can feel it coming in the air

I’ve been waiting for this moment all my life, my life

I can feel it coming in the air, I can feel it coming in the air

I’ve been waiting for this moment all my li-i-i-i-i-ife

I’ve been waiting for this moment all my life, my life
