Something Happened on the Way to Heaven

Phil Collins is a brilliant songwriter…but his songs are sometimes better sung by other people.

here is the cover:

here is the original:

We had a life, we had a love
But you don’t know what you’ve got ’til you lose it
Well that was then and this is now
And I want you back
How many times do I have to say I’m sorry, yes I’m sorry

How can something so good go so bad
How can something so right go so wrong
I don’t know, I don’t have all the answers
But I want you back
How many times can I say I’m sorry

You know, you can run, and you can hide
But I’m now leaving ‘less you come with me
We’ve had our problems but I’m on your side
You’re all I need, please believe in me, oh yeah

I only wanted someone to love
But something happened on the way to heaven
It got a hold of me and wouldn’t let go
And I want you back
How many times do I have to say I’m sorry, yes, I’m sorry

You know, you can run, and you can hide
But I’m not leaving less you come with me
We’ve had our problems but I’m on your side
You’re all I need, please believe me

You know, you can run, and you can hide
But I’m not leaving till it’s all over
We’ve had our problems but I’m on your side
You’re all I need, let me show you
They say you can’t take it with you when you go
And I believe it
But taking what I’ve got or being here with you
You know I, I’d rather leave it

We had a life, we had a love
But you don’t know what you’ve got ’til you lose it
Well that was then and this is now
And I want you back
How many times do I have to say I’m sorry, yes I’m sorry
You know you can run, and you can hide
But I’m not leaving less you come with me
We’ve had our problems but I’m on your side
You’re all I need, please believe in me

You can run, and you can hide
But I’m not leaving until it’s all over
We’ve had our problems but I’m on your side
You’re all I need, please believe in me
