I can feel it coming in the air tonight, Hold on
I've been waiting for this moment, all my life, Hold on
Can you feel it coming in the air tonight, Hold on, Hold on

Well, if you told me you were drowning
I would not lend a hand
I've seen your face before my friend
But I don't know if you know who I am
Well, I was there and I saw what you did
I saw it with my own two eyes
So you can wipe off the grin, I know where you've been
It's all been a pack of lies

And I can feel it coming in the air tonight, Hold on
I've been waiting for this moment for all my life, Hold on
I can feel it coming in the air tonight, Hold on, Hold on
And I've been waiting for this moment all my life, Hold on, Hold on

Well I remember, I remember don't worry
How could I ever forget, it's the first time, the last time we ever met
But I know the reason why you keep your silence up, no you don't fool me
The hurt doesn't show; but the pain still grows
It's no stranger to you or me

And I can feel it coming in the air tonight, Hold on...

    I have heard that Phil colins witnessed a friend row another man out to the middle of a lake at night and drown him, he then wrote this song to sing live and gave his friend (who had not been found out yet) front row seats and sung this song. Apparently the friend confessed within 48hrs
