I'm one of many, I speak for the rest but I don't understand
Tonight tonight, oh tonight, tonight
He brings another day another night, another fight
Well there's another day done and there's another gone by
He's a man of our times a man of our times
Tonight tonight, oh he's burning bright

He's a man of our times, he's a man of our times, ooh, ooh, ooh.
And in the beating of your heart there is another beating heart

All at once I can see what we do,
Me into me and you into you
Me into me and you into you
Tonight, tonight, oh he's s burning bright
Everyone is on their feet cos he is out, out on the street
There's another day done and there's another gone by.
No more me into me and you into you
Tonight tonight, oh he's burning bright.

Man of our times, he's a man of our times
He's a man of our times, ooh, ooh, ooh.
And in the beating of your heart, there is another beating heart

He's a man of our times...

    General CommentThis is a wonderful "mood" song on the album "Duke" and works nicely with the other Banks/Rutherford pieces, and thankfully outweighs the pop selections that Collins there. While his voice and drumming are a stunning fit for the band, it is unfortunate that he steered them so far into the mainstream.

    The song intends more epic scale than its length allows; the feeling evoked is intense. The lyrics are vague enough to give you the right to fill in your own blanks, but angry/haunted enough to nudge you in the right direction.

    General CommentI wonder if this is about politicians. Remember when this was written, there was great political upheaval in the UK with Margaret Thatcher becoming Prime Minister.
