Good afternoon Wembley!
Good afternoon the world really🙂
OK. This song is, er, mildly appropriate for today.

😎 Phil Collins

I must’ve dreamed a thousand dreams
I’ve been haunted by a million screams
Oh, but I can hear the marching feet
Oh they’re moving into the street.

Now did you read the news today?
They say the danger’s gone away
Oh, but I can see the fires still alight
And oh, they’re burning into the night.

There’s too many men
There’s too many people
Making too many problems
And there’s not much love to go round
Can’t you see
This is a land of confusion?

Now this is the world we live in
And these are the hands we’re given
Use them and let’s start trying
To make it a place worth living in.

Ah, superman where are you now?
Seems everything’s gone wrong somehow
Oh the men of steel, the men of power
Simply losing control by the hour.

This is the time
This is the place
When we look to the future
But there’s not much love to go round
Tell me why this is a land of confusion.

Now this is the world we live in
These are the hands we’re given
Use them and let’s start trying
To make it a place worth living in.

Remember long ago –
Yes when the sun was shining
And the stars were bright
All through the night
And the sound of your laughter
As I held you tight
So long ago –

But I won’t be coming home tonight
‘Cos my ge-generation will put it right
We’re not just making promises
Ooh that we know we’ll never keep.

‘Cos there’s too many men
There’s too many people
Making too many problems
And there’s not much love to go round
Can’t you see
This is a land of confusion?

Now this is the world we live in
These are the hands we’re given
Use them and let’s start trying
To make it a place worth fighting for.

Now this is the world we live in
And these are the names we’re given
Stand up and let’s start showing
Oh just where our lives are going to.
