"Doesn't Anybody Stay Together Anymore" as written by and Phil/stuermer Collins....
You keep on walking so you don't fall down
It's the same old story
You keep on hiding so you can't be found
It's the same old story
Oh but I know you, you're the one who ran
You know why, it's because you can, oh
It's alright, 'cause I don't mind
I'm just trying to help, but I wonder why
Doesn't anybody stay together anymore
I wonder why, doesn't anybody stay together anymore

My friends keep falling and they can't get up
It's the same old story
Well one says white and the other one black
It's the same old story
And I don't know why you keep emotions walled up
Your heart's on your sleeve, but your sleeve is rolled up
But it's alright, 'cause I don't mind
I'm just trying to help, but I wonder why
Doesn't anybody stay together anymore
I wonder why, doesn't anybody stay together anymore

Things can change, from a misunderstanding
Nobody talks, nobody hears, oh oh oh
Makes me wonder why, doesn't anybody stay together anymore
Oh I wonder why, doesn't anybody stay together anymore

You keep on looking for that higher ground
It's the same old story
Your glass is empty and the chips are down
It's the same old story
But I don't know why, your emotions walled up
Your heart's on your sleeve, but your sleeve is rolled up
But it's alright, 'cause I don't mind
I'm just trying to help, but I wonder why

Doesn't anybody stay together anymore
I wonder why, doesn't anybody stay together anymore
Oh I wonder why, doesn't anybody stay together anymore

    General CommentThis is a break-up song. It could be about one of his many divorces, but I have to wonder if he wrote it for a couple that he thought would be together forever.
