"In the Air Tonight" lyrics
by Phil Collins

I can feel it, comin' in the air tonight, oh Lord
I've been waitin' for this moment, all my life, oh Lord
Can you feel it comin' in the air tonight, oh Lord?
Oh Lord

Well if you told me you were drowning
I would not lend a hand
I've seen your face before, my friend
But I don't know if you know who I am?
Well I was there and I saw what you did
I saw it with my own two eyes
So you can wipe off that grin
Know where you've been
It's all been a pack of lies

And I can feel it comin' in the air tonight, oh Lord
I've been waitin' for this moment, all my life, oh Lord
I can feel it, in the air tonight, oh Lord, oh Lord
And I've been waitin' for this moment all of my life, oh Lord
Oh Lord

Well I remember, I remember, don't worry
How could I ever forget?
It's the first time and the last time we ever met
But I have know the reason why you keep your silence, oh
No you don't fool me
'Cause the hurt doesn't show
The pain still grows
It's stranger to you and me

I can feel it comin' in the air tonight, oh Lord
I've been waitin' for this moment for all my life, oh Lord
I can feel it comin' in the air tonight, oh Lord
I've been waitin' for this moment all my life, oh Lord oh Lord

I can feel it, comin' in the air tonight, oh Lord
I've been waiting for this moment all my life, oh Lord oh Lord
I can feel it, comin' in the air
I can feel it, comin' in the air
I've been waiting for this moment, all my life, my life
I can feel it, comin' in the air
I can feel it, comin' in the air
I've been waitin' for this moment, all my
Li aa aa aa aa aa aa aa aa aa aa aa aa aa aa aa aa aa aa aa aa aa aaa
I've been waitin' for this moment all my life, my life

"In the Air Tonight" is a song by Phil Collins that first appeared on his 1981 album Face Value. It was recorded in 1979 and was the first single of Collins' solo career, and remains one of his best-known hits. The music video, directed by Stuart Orme, was released in 1981.
Drum sound

"Musically, it's an extraordinarily striking record, because almost nothing happens in it ... It's the drum sound in particular that's amazing. You don't hear it at all for the first two minutes of the song ... then there's that great doo-dom doo-dom doo-dom comes in, and the drums come in half way through the song, setting the template for all the Eighties drum songs after that" - Stuart Maconie

The means by which Collins attained the drum sound on this recording was long a source of mystery. The exact process was, as happens so often, a result of serendipity: an unintended use of studio technology giving unexpectedly useful results.(source: Wikipedia)
