"Another Day in Paradise" as written by and Phil Collins....
She calls out to the man on the street, "Sir, can you help me?
It's cold and I've nowhere to sleep. Is there somewhere you can tell me?"
He walks on, doesn't look back, he pretends he can't hear her.
He starts to whistle as he crosses the street, seems embarrassed to be there.

Oh, think twice, it's just another day for you and me in paradise.
Oh, think twice, it's just another day for you, you and me in paradise.

She calls out to the man on the street, he can tell she's been crying.
She's got blisters on the soles of her feet, she can't walk, but she's trying. (trying)

Oh, think twice, it's just another day for you and me in paradise.
Oh, (oh) think twice, (oh) it's just another day for you, you and me in paradise.

Oh Lord, is there nothing more anyone can do?
Oh oh Lord, there must be something you can say

You can tell from the lines on her face, you can see that she's been there.
Probably been moved on from everyplace, cause she didn't fit in there.

Oh, think twice, it's just another day for you and me in paradise.
Oh, (oh) think twice, (oh) it's just another day for you, you and me in paradise.
Just think about it, oh

It's just another day for you and me in paradise
It's just another day for you and me oh

    General CommentPeople take their wonderful lives for granted, and rarely stop to see and help those who need it.

    General CommentHOW IS THERE ONLY ONE COMMENT ON THIS SONG
    It's my all-time favourite copeland song ever...

    Anyway, I agree with longtripalonex. It's about people turning a blind eye to the struggles other people have to face on a daily basis. It's a "paradise" to us, but for other people it can be complete hell, we just don't see because we just "walk on and don't look back."
