Don't Lose My Number Lyrics - Phil Collins

Review The Song (2)



They came at night leaving fear behind
Shadows were on the ground
Nobody knew where to find him
No evidence was found
"I'm never coming back"
They heard him cry
And I believe him
Well he never meant to do anything wrong
It's gonna get worse if he waits too long

Billy, Billy don't you lose my number
Cos you're not anywhere
That I can find you
Oh now Billy, Billy don't you lose my number
Cos you're not anywhere that I can find you, oh no

Searching through the day and into the night
They wouldn't stop till they found him
sponsored links
They didn't know him and they didn't understand
They never asked him why
"Get out of my way"
They heard him shout
Then a blinding light
Ooh all I could see was him running down the street
Out of the shadows and into the night

Now Billy, Billy don't you lose my number
Cos you're not anywhere
That I can find you, oh
Now Billy, Billy don't you lose my number
Cos you're not anywhere that I can find you, oh

Don't give up
Keep running, keep hiding
Don't give up
Billy, if you know you're right
Don't give up
You know that I am on your side
Don't give up
Oh Billy, you better, you better, you better run for your life

Now Billy, Billy don't you lose my number
Cos you're not anywhere
That I can find you, oh
Now Billy, Billy don't you lose my number
Cos you're not anywhere that I can find you, oh

They came at night leaving fear behind
Shadows were on the ground
Nobody knew where to find him
No evidence was found
"I'm never coming back"
They heard him cry
And I believe him
He never meant to do anything wrong
It's gonna get worse if he waits too long

Now Billy, Billy don't you lose my number
Cos you're not anywhere
That I can find you, oh
Now Billy, Billy don't you lose my number
Cos you're not anywhere that I can find you, oh

suspenseful, theatrical lyrics | Reviewer: Dave | 10/11/2007

Phil may have just finished reading a suspense novel prior to writing these lyrics because they leave me with the feeling of being inside of a big hollywood movie. You could say that this hypothetical movie was hypothetically based on the aforementioned hypothetical novel.

In any case, Phil take the "band on the run" songwriting tone and reinvents it as a "man on the run". Perhaps he wanted to capture the feeling of being alone and persecuted, but without the comfort of having a group of people with which to run.

But, there is one person to whom Billy can turn, and that apparently is Phil Collins, who as the song puts it, needs Billy's number in order to help.

Could it be that Phil wanted to project an image of himself as a savior to those who suffer from feelings of persecution? Don't we all feel persecuted in a way at times? Can any of us honestly say that we feel totally accepted by anybody?

Being the creative genius and inspiration to millions that he is, Phil taps into our need for approval and acceptance by extending his offer for us to call him when we are in our time of need. Maybe this song after all is just a way for Phil to tap into and express his own hero complex -the driving force that led to his involvement in so many selfless causes over the years.

As always, Phil has a very interesting way of putting his songs across.
