"That's All" as written by Andy Khachaturian, David Hakopyan, Artin Karamian and Sammy J. Watson....
Just as I thought it was going alright
I find out I'm wrong, when I thought I was right
S'always the same, it's just a shame, that's all
I could say day, you'd say night
Tell it's black when I know that it's white
S'always the same, it's just a shame, that's all

I could leave but I won't go
Though my heart might tell me so
I can't feel a thing from my head down to my toes
So why does it always seem to be
Me looking at you, you looking at me
S'always the same, it's just a shame, that's all

Turning me on, turning me off
Making me feel like I want too much
Living with you's just putting me through it all of the time
Running around, staying out all night
Taking it all instead of taking one bite
Living with you's just putting me through it all of the time

I could leave but I won't go
It'd be easier I know
I can't feel a thing from my head down to my toes
But why does it always seem to be
Me looking at you, you looking at me
S'always the same, just a shame, that's all

Truth is I love you
More than I wanted to
There's no point in trying to pretend
There's been no-one who
Makes me feel like you do
Say we'll be together til the end

I could leave but I won't go
It'd be easier I know
I can't feel a thing from my head down to my toes
But why does it always seem to be
Me looking at you, you looking at me
S'always the same, just a shame, that's all

Just as I thought it was going alright
I find out I'm wrong when I thought I was right
S'always the same, just a shame, that's all
I could say day, you'd say night
Tell me it's black when I know that it's white
S'always the same, it's just a shame, that's all

That's all

    General CommentCool, I get to be the first to comment on this song. It has been one of my favorite songs since I was real young and I mainly liked it because of the piano in it and I never really paid attention to the lyrics. Now that I'm older and I just went through a divorce it was scary as to how this song was tailor made for my situation (after I read the lyrics). I'm the type that can't leave someone I love even if it is for the right reasons. But I'm sure glad my ex-wife had the courage to leave me, I'm much happier now! So the song is creapy in a way but in another way I enjoy hearing it from time to time to as a reminder of what I just went through. Phil sing this song just perfect.

    General CommentThis song is much to do about the poo of a relationship.

    My InterpretationAs a songwriter who routinely uses figures of speech to ascribe multiple meanings to the same sequence of words, I can tell you
    EXACTLY what this song is about:

    ______________
    C.O.C.A.I.N.E.
    ______________

    I am certain this is Phil Collin's ode to the contradictions inherent in a chronic cocaine abuser's never ending quest for elation;
    followed immediately by guilt and remorse.

    Don't believe me?

    Just listen to the song again right now with THAT premise in mind...

    " I could leave but I won't
    go,
    it would be easier I know..
    I can't feel a thing from my head down to my toes.."

    I mean, really: c'mon people!

    cheers!
