Collins wrote the song about the anger he felt after divorcing his first wife Andrea in 1979. He was so devastated that he left Genesis for a short time. All the original songs on the Face Value album, including the follow-up hit “I Missed Again,” were messages to his first wife in an attempt to lure her back to him.

The song did better in the UK than here in the US, reaching # 2 in England, and # 19 on the American chart.

We’ll take caller # 14 to win tickets to see Walt Disney’s Fantasia accompanied by the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra; 1-800-232-KRTH (5784).
