"In The Air Tonight (Phil Collins Cover)" as written by and Phil Collins....
I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord
And I've been waiting for this moment for 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
Well 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
Well I've been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord
I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord
Well I've been waiting for this moment for 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, the last time we ever met
But I know the reason why you keep your silence up, oh no you don't fool me
Well the hurt doesn't show, but the pain still grows
It's no stranger to you and me

I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord
Well been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord
I can feel it in the air tonight, oh Lord, oh Lord
Well I've been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord
I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord
And I've been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord
I can feel it in the air tonight, oh Lord, oh Lord, oh Lord
Well I've been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord, oh Lord

I can feel it in the air tonight, oh Lord, oh Lord, oh Lord, oh Lord
Well I've been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord, oh Lord, oh Lord

    General CommentWow this is an amazing cover. Nonpoint is a great band, personally I think Development is their best CD. If you go to their website at nonpoint.com you can hear some other stuff if you like this.

    General CommentHmm... you guys know that Phil Collins wrote this, because he witnessed a girl drown, right? It's a kick ass song, but it's supposed to be depressing and not rock/tribal like they make it sound.

    General CommentJames W. is correct about this. The drowning story and the murder story, while entertaining, are both complete urban legends. Phil Collins said on many times that this song was about how much hurt he was going through during his split with his first wife. No idea on what she did but as you can tell by the lyrics it wasnt pleasant.

    Cover isnt bad but i still like the original more since it sounds much more haunting than this one. An interesting fact is that this song's original version was used on the Miami Vice t.v. show while this cover is used on the movie's soundtrack.
