Lyrics

play She calls out to the man on the street
play 'Sir, can you help me?
play It's cold and I've nowhere to sleep,
play Is there somewhere you can tell me?'

play He walks on, doesn't look back
play He pretends he can't hear her
play Starts to whistle as he crosses the street
play Seems embarrassed to be there

play Oh think twice,
play it's another day for you and me in paradise
play Oh think twice,
play 'cause it's just another day for you,
play You and me in paradise, think about it

play She calls out to the man on the street
play He can see she's been crying
play She's got blisters on the soles of her feet
play She can't walk but she's trying

play Oh think twice,
play 'cause it's another day for u and me in paradise
play Oh think twice,
play it's just another day for you,
play You and me in paradise, think about it

play Oh Lord, is there nothing more anybody can do
play Oh Lord, there must be something you can say

play You can tell from the lines on her face
play You can see that she's been there
play Probably been moved on from every place
play 'Cause she didn't fit in there

play Oh think twice,
play 'cause it's another day for u and me in paradise
play Oh think twice,
play it's just another day for you,
play You and me in paradise,
play just think about it, think about it

play It's just another day
play for you and me in paradise
play It's just another day
play for you and me in paradise, paradise
play Just think about it, paradise, just think about it
play Paradise, paradise, paradise

meaning Meaning

It is a protest song.

Collins sings the song from a third-person perspective, observing as a man crosses the street to ignore a homeless woman, and he implores listeners not to turn a blind eye to homelessness because, by drawing a religious allusion, "it's just another day for you and me in paradise". Collins also appeals directly to God by singing: "Oh Lord, is there nothing more anybody can do? Oh Lord, there must be something you can say?"
