"Please Don't Ask" as written by and Phil Collins....
Please don't ask me how I feel, I feel fine
Oh I cry a bit, don't sleep too good, but I'm fine
When can I see you?
When can I see you?

Again and again I ask myself was I wrong?
Oh but time's a healer, and heaven knows I've been strong
Maybe we could try
Maybe we could work this time

I can remember when it was easy to say I love you
But things have changed since then, now I really can't say if I still do

But I can try
I know that the kids are well, you're a mother to the world
But I miss my boy
I hope he's good as gold

But enough of me, tell me how are you? You look good
Oh you've lost weight I can see, your hair looks nice, you look good
Maybe we should try, don't say it! I know why

I can remember when it was easy to say I love you
But things have changed since then, now I really can't say if I still do

But I can try
I know that the kids are well, you're a mother to the world
But I miss my boy
I hope he's good as gold

    General CommentI don't know too much about Phil's private life, but this one's seems to be about his divorce. He describes to typical behaviour of ex-couples, telling each other how good they look etc. and trying to be nice and start all over again.

    General CommentThis track reminds me of the time after I split up with my girlfriend - questioning whether I did the right thing in going. To a certain extent, I did the same as the person in the song in trying to persuade my ex to take me back again, but knew deep down that things had just changed to much to allow it to happen.

    It's a nice track and very poignant for anyone who's been in the position of the party Phil Collins is singing about...

    General CommentTight track.

    It's authentic, and full of candour.

    As Phil would say: "good as gold".
