DH sings “In the Air Tonight” to my Pedophile Father – Lyrics

My husband told me the other day, that ever since he first met my father, my father reminded him of this song.  Phil Collins In the Air Tonight…. My husband knew I was a victim of Childhood Sexual Abuse at the hands of my father, before I did…. He knew when on our wedding night I was not a virgin, yet I strongly believed I was….. He knew when I told him that dad acted like a creep once, but it was mild, and dad was fully repentant… He knew when my relationship with my dad was strange, when my relationship with my mother was strange… I wanted to name my first son after my dad, but DH refused…. DH knew…. And when I finally knew, DH admitted he always knew….. When I hear this song, I imagine the voice of my husbands internal voice singing to my dad, all those years… it is powerful…





“In The Air Tonight”

I can feel it coming in the air tonight, Oh LordI’ve been waiting for this moment, all my life, Oh Lord

Can you feel it coming in the air tonight, Oh Lord, Oh Lord


Well, if you told me you were drowning

I would not lend a hand

I’ve seen your face before my friend

But I don’t know if you know who I am

Well, I was there and I saw what you did

I saw it with my own two eyes

So you can wipe off the grin, I know where you’ve been

It’s all been a pack of lies


And I can feel it coming in the air tonight, Oh Lord

I’ve been waiting for this moment for all my life, Oh Lord

I can feel it in the air tonight, Oh Lord, Oh Lord

And I’ve been waiting for this moment all my life, Oh Lord, Oh Lord


Well I remember, I remember don’t worry

How could I ever forget, it’s the first time, the last time we ever met

But I know the reason why you keep your silence up, no you don’t fool me

The hurt doesn’t show; but the pain still grows

It’s no stranger to you or me


And I can feel it coming in the air tonight, Oh Lord…
