"The Least You Can Do" as written by and Phil/stuermer Collins....
I was lying awake last night, waiting for your call
But if the rumors are true, that won't bother you at all
I'm trying hard to understand
What it takes to be your man
Now I don't have to wonder anymore

Least you can do is say you're sorry
Least you can do is give me back my heart
Just give me back my heart

Seems living in hope was wrong those years I was away
Thinking your letters, I never received, had gone astray
You said you'd always be there for me
Like a fool I thought you'd be
Now I don't know what I was thinking at all

But the least you can do is say you're sorry girl
Least you can do is give me back my heart
I won't come around no more
You won't find me standing outside your door
Least you can do is tell me why, tell me why

The least you can do is say you're sorry girl
Least you can do is give me back my heart
I won't come around no more
You won't find me standing outside your door
But the least you can do is tell me why

I won't be your fool anymore
There's no need to be cruel anymore, no, no
Least you can do is say you're sorry girl
The least you can do is give me back my heart
Just give me back my heart

    General CommentI did you a favor by putting these lyrics up. Apparently people don't know about this song but it's unbelievable. If you ever break up with somebody and they just completely stole your heart, turn this baby up and just scream along with Phil (one of the greatest songwriters!) It's just perfect though, after a break-up, the one thing you want is your heart back! Phil, you are amazing!

    General Comment^^^^^^^

    According to many Genesis fans, Phil killed Genesis and is the leading cause of both world hunger and AIDS.

    Me, I'll stick with simply he killed Genesis. He's good for pop, but pop will never reach the heights of progressive rock.

    General Commentindeed it is amazing!!

    and can i just say that it was peter gabriel's own choice to leave genesis!!! and that phil did an excelent job replacing him!!!

    would you rather have had, than when peter left, they just stopt existing? when you're a real genesis fan you want the best thing for the band you love

    and i also believe that genesis whas never progressive rock.

    just my oppinion
