Phil Collins - A Long Long Way To Go

<iframe title="YouTube video player" width="480" height="390" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/adXY0Q1Eqzc" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

While I sit here trying to think of things to say
Someone lies bleeding in a field somewhere
So it would seem we've still got a long long way to go
I've seen all I wanna see today

While I sit here trying to move you anyway I can
Someone's son lies dead in a gutter somewhere
And it would seem that we've got a long long way to go
But I can't take it anymore

Turn it off if you want to
Switch it off it will go away
Turn it off if you want to
Switch it off or look away

While I sit and we talk and talk and we talk some more
Someone's loved one's heart stops beating in a street somewhere
So it would seem we've still got a long long way to go, I know
I've heard all I wanna hear today

Turn it off if you want to (turn it off if you want to)
Switch it off it will go away (switch it off it will go away)
Turn it off if you want to (turn it off if you want to)
Switch it off or look away (switch it off or look away)

Switch it off
Turn it off

Winter gettin' colder, summer gettin' warmer
Tidal wave comin' cross the Mexican border
Why buy a gallon, it's cheaper by the barrel?
Just don't get busted singing Christmas carols

That's us, that's right
Gotta love this American ride
Both ends of the ozone burnin'
Funny how the world keeps turnin'
Look Ma, no hands, I love this American ride
Gotta love this American ride

Mama gets her rocks off watchin' Desperate Housewives
Daddy works his ass off payin' for the good life
Kids on the YouTube learnin' how to be cool
Livin' in a cruel world, pays to be a mean girl

That's us, that's right
Gotta love this American ride
Both ends of the ozone burnin'
Funny how the world keeps turnin'
Look Ma, no hands, I love this American ride
Gotta love this American ride

Poor little infamous, America's town
She gained five pounds and lost her crown
Quick fix plastic surgical antidote
Got herself a record deal, can't even sing a note

Plasma gettin' bigger, Jesus gettin' smaller
Spill a cup of coffee, make a million dollars
Customs caught a thug with an aerosol can
If the shoe don't fit, the fit's gonna hit the shan

That's us, that's right
Gotta love this American ride
Both ends of the ozone burnin'
Funny how the world keeps turnin'
Hot dog, hot damn, I love this American ride
Gotta love this American ride, oh yeah

Said goodbye,
Turned around and you were gone, gone, gone...
Faded into the setting sun,
Slipped away.

But I won't cry 'cause I know,
I'll never be lonely,
For you are the stars to me,
You are the light I follow.

I will see you again, woah.
This is not where it ends.
I will carry you with me, oh...
Til I see you again.

I can hear those echos in the wind at night
Calling me in time, back to you.
In a place far away where the water meets the sky,
The thought of it makes me smile.
You were my tomorrow.

I will see you again, woah.
This is not where it ends.
I will carry you with me, oh...
Til I see you again.

Sometimes I feel my heart is breaking...
But I stay strong and I hold on
Cause I know...

I will see you again, woah.
This is not where it ends.
I will carry you with me, yeah yea

I will see you again, woah.
This is not where it ends.
I will carry you with me, oh...
Til I see you again.

Til I see you again...

Til I see you again... yeah yeah yea oh woah.

Til I see you again.

Said goodbye, turned around and you were gone, gone, gone.

Can a person really look at the stars and never be lonely? I love the scenes of people coming back from far away deployments and surprising their family, it never gets old.

There's a bunch of them on YouTube. I like the pet ones the best!

The pets are cool. I guess they suffer too in their own way. I like the brother and sister ones as well. Never had a sister, like seeing how the different gender siblings appear to be close.

With the stories about dogs somehow finding their way home from hundreds or even thousands of miles away, it seems that if they get it in their head that they miss someone, it can be quite a strong emotion.

Well, now, take down your fishin' pole and meet me at The Fishin' Hole,
We may not get a bite all day, but don't you rush away.

What a great place to rest your bones and mighty fine for skippin' stones,
You'll feel fresh as a lemonade, a-settin' in the shade.

Whether it's hot, whether it's cool, oh what a spot for whistlin' like a fool.

What a fine day to take a stroll and wander by The Fishin' Hole,
I can't think of a better way to pass the time o' day.

We'll have no need to call the roll when we get to The Fishin' Hole,
There'll be you, me, and Old Dog Trey, to doodle time away.

If we don't hook a perch or bass, we'll cool our toes in dewy grass,
Or else pull up a weed to chaw, and maybe set and jaw.

Hangin' around, takin' our ease, watchin' that hound a-scratchin' at his fleas.

Come on, take down your fishin' pole and meet me at The Fishin' Hole,
I can't think of a better way to pass the time o' day.
