Another Day in Paradise-Lyrics

This was the first single released by Phill Collins. This song was written to bring attention about the problem of homelessness. Phill Collins won the Grammy award for this song. One of my favorite song with simple and clear lyrics.

The other thought that comes into my mind is that, each one of us should feel happy and thank god for food and shelter we are enjoying. We should not waste the food because there is someone in the world who is not eating due to poverty.

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
Starts to whistle as he crosses the street
Seems embarrassed to be there

Oh think twice, it's 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 see she's been crying
She's got blisters on the soles of her feet
Can't walk but she's trying

Oh lord, is there nothing more anybody can do
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 every place
'Cos she didn't fit in there
