"Everyday" as written by Charles Kipps, James Ellis Ford and James Anthony Shaw....
'Love can make you do things you never dreamed possible'

I got lost, couldn't find my way
And I guess there's nothing more to say
Love can make you blind, make you act so strange
But I'm here and here I will stay

So everyday I cry
Yes everyday I fall
Do you ever wonder why, why I love everything about you

But everyday I say I'll try to make my heart be still
'Til then every way there is to cry, ourselves to sleep we will

It picked me up, knocked me off my feet
I've got no way to explain
Still I love you, love you, love you but this fire inside
Will never see the light of day

So everyday goes by
And everyday I fall
It makes me wonder why,
My life's worth nothing without you

But everyday I say I'll try
To make my heart be still
'Cause every way there is to cry,
Ourselves to sleep, we will

You'll never know, no, no, no ,no ,no
You'll never know just how close we were
You'll never know, no, no, no ,no ,no
You'll never know
No you'll never see

The book closes and we try to forget
But I know that things won't change
How we feel, how life goes on
And that seems so strange

And so the light fades away
Try, try, try as I may
I can't stop thinking about you
It seems my life's worth nothing without you

But everyday I say I'll try
To make my heart be still
'Til then every way there is to cry,
Ourselves to sleep, we will

Everyday, everyday you know I try so hard
Everyday, everyday it gets a little harder

    General CommentThis song is almost autobiographical for me. I was with someone who was totally amazing in every way (smart, funny, beautiful, passionate, accomplished, family-oriented: the total package); she was more than I could ever, ever wish for. We were totally taken with each other and completely happy together. Somehow, over a short period of time,I became convinced that I was not enough for her... I lacked confidence and I thought that I'd hold her back. I also had a pretty dangerous job that would require us to be apart for long periods of time and I was obligated to do that job for a number of years. I decided to end the relationship (my love for her made me act so strangely). It crushed her and it crushed me, too. I was so completely in love with her even after leaving her. I thought of her/still think of her everyday (multiple times a day). We didn't communicate almost at all (a couple short phone calls and a card) over an 18 year period. I married someone else and have a family (here I am and here I will stay). After 18 years apart, I decided I had to find her... we have resumed communicating and have stay in contact for the past 10 years. She never married but is in a relationship (no kids). She and I still love each other. I'm unable to let my love for her see the light of day because I vowed to be faithful to my wife. The only part of the song that isn't accurate for me is that I never, ever tried to forget her and I don't think I'm worth nothing without her. I was so wrong to leave her... she and I would have been amazing together.

    General CommentI agree that this is a beautiful song, but I'm not sure what exactly it is about. I think it is after a breakup. He knows he needs to move on, but he can't stop thinking about her.

    General CommentThis song is one of my all-time favourites from Phil Collins! but until recently i never knew it was him who sang it! back in 1995 this song was being played ALL over the tv and radio at least once every couple of hours for a time....
    so WHY has it been TOTALLY forgotten? Ive not heard it played for almost a decade, and it was only because I stumbled across it by accident that I heard it again!
    I never forgot this song, it was in my head for years after i heard it, and its so tender and smooth. It reminds me of the good old days when I used to listen to this song on my first ghetto blaster when i was fiddling around with the radio frequencies and seeing what i could pick up instead of doing my school homework! hehe

    General CommentThis is such a beautiful song. It is weird that there aren't a lot of comments about it. It's a very deep and emotional song. Very painful song too.

    General CommentThe song is about wanting someone you can't have. I would guess that in some ways that this other person felt the same way about him but their relationship couldn't be for various reasons (probably because they were both married to other people).

    It is a beautiful song. Phil Collins is an excellent writer. One of his albums consisted of letters he had written his wife as they were divorcing.

    General CommentI Think this song is about a break up....and probably the girl have left the guy.....and the guy doesnt want to call it quits and need her so badly...but he have got no choice....so he cries expressing his pain.....
