International versions

The song was also performed by Phil Collins in various other languages besides English, namely German, French, Spanish, Italian and Japanese.

Critical reception

GenesisNews said the song is a "compact...strong ballad" and reminiscent of older Phil Collins songs such as "I Wish It Would Rain Down" due to its "speed, harmonies and female backing vocals". [2] Allmusic deemed it "forgettable ". [3] Some critics were not fond of its use in the final film, as it drowned out the dialogue in what was supposed to be the movie's emotional highpoint.
