"More Fool Me" as written by Anthony Banks, Phil Collins, Peter Gabriel, Michael Rutherford and Steve Hackett....
Here am I
Who while away the mornings
Since you've gone
Too long have I lay alone
Not knowing which way to turn.

And there you are
Quite sure that you were right
Knowing full well
That I'd be the first one
To go down.

And you'd be the one who was laughing
Except when things weren't going your way
And then the lady would say that she'd had enough
Wandering around on her own.

The day you left
Well I think you knew you'd not be back
Well at least it would seem that way
Because you never said goodbye.
But when it comes round to you and me
I'm sure it will work out alright.

And you'd be the one who was laughing
And giving me something I don't need
And you know, I'd always hold you and keep you warm
Oh! more fool me.

Ah, but when it comes
Round to you and me
I ask myself
Do I really believe
In your love.

Yes, I'm sure it will work out alright.

    General CommentThis song reminds me of In Too Deep. I love this song but wondered why it was on such a deep album, it doesn't fit with the theme at all.

    I don't think its about a breakup, but more a man who is in love with a women who is just a friend. Could explain why she does the things she does to him with no feelings.
    ... This also reminds me a of Bread song...

    General Commentthis seems to be a breakup with someone cause mainly by her never bein wrong and knowing she had a certain degree of control over things. he doesnt seem to believe she loved him anyway and has resided himself to a bit of self pity which is fair enough. poor old phil. -one of his first outtings on the vocals too... its nice in a high pitched way.

    General CommentDrivel...Drivel...Drivel...

    There is a reason I won't even consider giving Selling England By the Pound one of my few five star ratings...

    And this is it...

    Drivel...Drivel...Drivel...

    Simply pure, uninspired, boring, pointless, meaningless, ugly DRIVEL!
