People know what they want. They know how to pursue who and what they love. And when they don’t know, they fall back and slink away in fear and cowardice.
The sailor said Brandy was a fine girl and what a good wife she would be but he had to choose the sea. What a fucking crock of shit. What a worthless pathetic piece of shit man. Coward. Worthless. Coward. Your love is the sea because you are terrified of risk, you piece of shit. Brandy is so lucky to be free of your cowardly ass.
THIS is the ballad of the broken hearted being brutally displaced by a new love. What did Phil Collins do to get kicked out of the house? Or did he agree to move out because he cheated? Or did the relationship fall into a rut? Is it ever fair to start a new relationship before the old relationships has become firmly entrenched in the past?
I have many questions! But the mystery doesn’t stop me from enjoying the sweet heartbreak of the song.
