Easy lover

 

 

Un bel duetto tra i tanti degli Anni ‘80 è quello di Phil Collins e Philip Bailey in “Easy lover”, un brano del 1984 che vede il fascino solista del batterista dei Genesis unito a quello della voce degli Earth, Wind & Fire. Ne uscì un pezzo che scalò le classifiche arrivando al primo posto in Gran Bretagna e in Olanda e al secondo negli Stati Uniti. La canzone venne inserita solo nell’album di Bailey, Chinese Wall. Collins la cantò nei concerti e la inserì solo in una versione dal vivo nel disco live del 1990 prima di una raccolta di successi del 1998.

 

EASY LOVER
(Phil Collins, Philip Bailey, Nathan East)

Easy lover
She'll get a hold on you believe it
Like no other
Before you know it you'll be on your knees
She's an easy lover
She'll take your heart but you won't feel it
She's like no other
And I'm just trying to make you see
She's the kind of girl you dream of
Dream of keeping hold of
You'd better forget it
You'll never get it
She will play around and leave you
Leave you and deceive you
Better forget it
Oh you'll regret it
No you'll never change her, so leave it, leave it
Get out quick cos seeing is believing
It's the only way
You'll ever know
Easy lover
She'll get a hold on you believe it
Like no other
Before you know it you'll be on your knees
She's an easy lover
She'll take your heart but you won't feel it
She's like no other
And I'm just trying to make you see
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsfreak.com/p/phil+collins/easy+lover_20108038.html ]
You're the one that wants to hold her
Hold her and control her
You'd better forget it
You'll never get it
For she'll say there's no other
Till she finds another
Better forget it
Oh you'll regret it
And don't try to change her, just leave it, leave it
You're not the only one, ooh seeing is believing
It's the only way
You'll ever know, oh
No don't try to change her, just leave it, leave it
You're not the only one, ooh seeing is believing
It's the only way
You'll ever know, oh
She's an easy lover (she's a easy lover)
She'll get a hold on you believe it (get a hold on you)
(She's) like no other
Before you know it you'll be on your knees (you'll be down on your knees)
She's an easy lover
She'll take your heart but you won't feel it (you won't feel it)
She's like no other
And I'm just trying to make you see (trying to make you see)
