Phil Collins – I Cannot Believe It's True lyrics

When I opened your letter yesterday
I could not believe my eyes
'Cos I've already given all I have to give
And I think it must have slipped your mind
But I remember not so long ago
I gave it all, it's gone
And I gave it all to you
Now I'm living on borrowed time, but it's mine

Oh, d'you hear me?
I cannot believe it's true
Are you really doing the things you do.
No I cannot believe it's you, really you

Oh these people I'm talking to don't understand
They don't seem to realize
They're listening but they're not hearing me
They're being too cruel to be kind
Any kind of feeling that I had is gone
'Cos I gave it all, it's gone
And I gave it all to you
Now I'm living on borrowed time, but it's mine

Oh, d'you hear me?
I cannot believe it's true
Are you really doing the things you do.
No I cannot believe it's you, really you

Over and over I keep on telling myself
Over and over I hope I'm gonna make up
Over and over I know it's really happening
And there's nothing that I can say
'Cos nothing can change all the things that you've done to me
Nothing can make me stay

Oh, 'cos you know I cannot believe it's true
Are you really doing the things you do
No I cannot believe it's you, really you

I know it's a crying shame, it's all the same to you
It seems all so well laid out but I cannot get through
Never meant it to show
It started happening, that's all you know.

Oh, I gave it all to you
Now I'm living on borrowed time, but it's mine

Oh, d'you hear me?
I cannot believe it's true
Are you really doing the things you do
No I cannot believe it's you, really you

Over and over I keep on telling myself
Over and over I Hope I'm gonna make up
But over and over I know it's really happening
And there's nothing that I can say
'Cos nothing can change all the things that you do to me
Nothing can make me stay

'Cos you know I cannot believe it's true
Are you really doing the things you do
No I cannot believe it's you, really you
