Il testo della canzone Man on the corner (1981)

(Phil Collins)
See the lonely man there on the corner
What he's waiting for, I don't know
But he waits everyday now
He's just waiting for something to show

And nobody knows him
And nobody cares
Cos there's no hiding place
There's no hiding place for you

Looking everywhere at no one
He sees everything and nothing at all
Oh, when he shouts nobody listens
Where he leads no one will go

He's a lonely man, there on the corner
What he's waiting for, I don't know
But he waits everyday now
He's just waiting for something to show

Nobody knows him
And nobody cares
Cos there's no hiding place
There's no hiding place - for you and me
We're just like all the rest
We're looking too hard for something he's got
Or moving too fast to rest
But like a monkey on your back, you need it
But do you love it enough to leave it

Just like the lonely man there on the corner
What he's waiting for, I don't know
But he waits everyday now
He's just waiting for something to show
