Lyrics of the song Second home by the sea (1983)

(Phil Collins, Mike Rutherford, Tony Banks)
Images of sorrow, pictures of delight
things that go to make up a life
endless days of summer longer nights of gloom
just waiting for the morning light
scenes of unimportance like photos in a frame
things that go to make up a life

As we relive our lives in what we tell you
