There must be some misunderstanding
There must be some kind of mistake
I waited in the rain for hours
And you were late

Now its not like me to say the right thing
But you couldve called to let me know
I checked your number twice, dont understand it
So I went home

Well Id been waiting for this weekend
I thought that maybe we could see a show
Never dreamed Id have this feeling
Oh but seeing you is believing
Thats why I dont know why
You didnt show up that night

There must be some misunderstanding
There must be some kind of mistake
I was waiting in the rain for hours
And you were late

Since then Ive been running around trying to find you
I went to the places that we always go
I rang your home but got no answer
Jumped in my car, I went round there
Still dont believe it
He was just leaving

There must be some misunderstanding
There must be some kind of mistake...

    This is one of the last songs Phil Collins made with Genesis before he went solo. This was just a little while before his divorce with his first wife. The song is about his failing relationship with his wife, and they eventually got divorced. Phil Collins went solo shortly after his divorce because he was too devastated to keep playing with the band.
