"Easy Lover" as written by and Phil/bailey Collins....
Easy lover
She'll get a hold on you believe it
Like no other
Before you know it you'll be on your knees
She's an easy lover
She'll take your heart but you won't feel it
She's like no other
And I'm just trying to make you see

She's the kind of girl you dream of
Dream of keeping hold of
You'd better forget it
You'll never get it
She will play around and leave you
Leave you and deceive you
Better forget it
Oh you'll regret it

No you'll never change her, so leave it, leave it
Get out quick 'cause seeing is believing
It's the only way
You'll ever know

Easy lover
She'll get a hold on you believe it
Like no other
Before you know it you'll be on your knees
She's an easy lover
She'll take your heart but you won't feel it
She's like no other
And I'm just trying to make you see

You're the one that wants to hold her
Hold her and control her
You'd better forget it
You'll never get it
For she'll say there's no other
Till she finds another
Better forget it
Oh you'll regret it

And don't try to change her, just leave it, leave it
You're not the only one, cause seeing is believing
It's the only way
You'll ever know, oh

No don't try to change her, just leave it, leave it
You're not the only one, ooh seeing is believing
It's the only way
You'll ever know, oh

She's an easy lover (she's a easy lover)
She'll get a hold on you believe it (get a hold on you)
(She's) like no other
Before you know it you'll be on your knees (you'll be down on your knees)
She's an easy lover
She'll take your heart but you won't feel it (you won't feel it)
She's like no other
And I'm just trying to make you see (trying to make you see)

She's an easy lover (she's a easy lover)
She'll get a hold on you believe it (get a hold on you)
(She's) like no other
Before you know it you'll be on your knees (you'll be down on your knees)
She's an easy lover
She'll take your heart but you won't feel it (you won't feel it)
She's like no other
And I'm just trying to make you see (trying to make you see)

    General CommentHey i thought this song was just about a girl who is easy to fall in love with cos she plays around with the guy's emotions. As in she is smooth and therefore easy to love. But at the end of the time she will leave the guy for someone else, as in an emotional player. But I didn't think it ment easy as in she is promiscuous.

    General CommentI agree with that last one- it's about those girls that are easy to fall in love with, who can't be pinned down for long, and no matter how hard you try, you won't be the one who's enough to keep her...Does anyone feel sorry for the girl he's singing about? Imagine never ever being satisfied, constantly moving from one guy to the next. Did you ever think that maybe she wasn't trying to make you fall in love with her or break your hearts?

    General Commentthis song is so true about a lot of women out there...awesome song from an awesome artist. Hall and Oates' "Maneater" is bad ass too!

    General CommentHi everyone, I am very sad man, my wife is "one" of this easy lover females - I thought she would change with the time but I relaise that she will never do that, I must dump her and get my life continue without her.

    General CommentI heard Phill Collins talk about this song once. He said that his main role was as a producer to Philip Bailey wich is the artist of this song. Then when the song needed extra vocals of course Collins gladly jumped in and sang. But it was still Phillips song. However Collins understood that the only way the song was going to be a big hit was if it was released with his already good name and white skin (As Philip is black). Sadly, he said we did it and it was a big hit!

    General CommentThis song is about two guys and a girl; guy #1 has just been dumped by the easy lover and he's not sure why(he did everything a boyfriend was supposed to do)and now he's heartbroken. The dumpee is now warning the other guy with this song because he or any other guy will be her next target.

    General CommentI have heard this song lots of times before but it was only until I got it that I really listened to the lyrics of this song. This really relates to me in terms of I have an ex that I really love, and she is like the girl Phil Collins is talking about in this song.
