DESOLATION... CREATION... COMMUNICATION...
The Story In Your Eyes (Justin Hayward) I've been thinking about our fortune And I've decided that we're really not to blame For the love that's deep inside us now Is still the same And the sounds we make together Is the music to the story in your eyes It's been shining down upon me now I realise Listen to the tide slowly turning Wash all our heartaches away We're part of the fire that is burning And from the ashes we can build another day But I'm frightened for your children That the life that we are living is in vain And the sunshine we've been waiting for Will turn to rain Listen to the tide slowly turning Wash all our heartaches away We're part of the fire that is burning And from the ashes we can build another day But I'm frightened for the children That the life that we are living is in vain And the sunshine we've been waiting for Will turn to rain When the final line is over It's certain that the curtain's gonna fall I can hide inside your sweet, sweet love Forever more
Our Guessing Game (Ray Thomas) Walking in the sand Thinking of things Adventures in my mind Tall ships that sail Across the ocean wide They won't wait for me See the way they glide Away so gracefully And with tomorrow What will become of me? They leave me so much to explain That's the start of our guessing game There are times when I think I've found the truth There are times when I know that I'm wrong And the days when I try to hide my fears Bless the days when I'm feeling strong Bless the days when I'm feeling strong Wonder why we try so hard? Wonder why we try at all? You wonder why the world is turning around When in the end it won't matter at all Standing in the town Looking at people Counting their frowns Unhappy faces hurrying around So blind they cannot see All of these things The way life ought to be And with tomorrow What will they make of me? It leaves me so much to explain That's the start of our guessing game There are times when I think I've found the truth There are times when I know that I'm wrong And the days when I try to hide my fears Bless the days when I'm feeling strong Bless the days when I'm feeling strong There are times when I think I've found the truth There are times when I know that I'm wrong And the days when I try to hide my fears Bless the days when I'm feeling strong
Emily's Song (John Lodge) Lovely to know the warmth Your smile can bring to me I want to tell you but the words you do not know Sing me a lullaby Of songs you cannot write And I will listen for there's beauty where there's love And in the morning of my life And in the evening of my day I will try to understand in what you say... Rivers of endless tides Have passed beneath my feet And all too soon they had me standing on my own Then when my eyes were closed You opened them for me And now we journey through our lives to what will be And in the morning of my life And in the evening of my day I will try to understand in what you say Through all that life can give to you Only true love will see you through And will stand beside you now in what you say And in the morning of my life And in the evening of my day I will try to understand in what you say Take me into your world Alone I can not go For I've been here so long You're leaving me behind Walk with me now Into your land of fairy tales And open up that book of pages in my mind And open up that book of ages in my mind And open up that book of pages in my mind And open up that book of ages in my mind
After You Came (Graeme Edge) Since it began I've got one dream And really it's my only blessing If I can come through then so can you And you will find there's no regretting Things that you want from your life's font Will never let your spirit grow Come back to earth for what it's worth For you've been dreaming of the ceiling not a home I've been doing my best What else can I do? Is there something I've missed That will help you through? I've reached the top of my wall I've found another way to fall For some short time For a while you and I Were joined to eternity Then we're split in two Back to me and you Like the rain rising from the sea Rising from the sea We all can see what we shall be But knowing's really not controlling With time perhaps I'll pass the traps And find some peace and understanding After you've come and while you're gone You leave me guessing it's depressing Never to know the way to go To find some time along a little less pressing So you just have to laugh When it hurts so much You're so far away And so hard to touch I've reached the top of the wall And all I've found Is another way to fall Since it began I've got one dream And really it's my only blessing If I can come through then so can you And you will find there's no regretting Things that you want from your life's font Will never let your spirit grow Come back to earth for what it's worth For you've been dreaming of the ceiling not a home I've been doing my best What else can I do? Is there something I've missed That will help you through? I've reached the top of the wall And all I've found Is another way to fall




   

One More Time To Live
(John Lodge)

Look out of my window
See the world passing by
See the look in her eye

One more time to live and I have made it mine
Leave the wise to write 
for they write worldly rhymes
And he who wants to fight begins the end of time
For I have riches more than these
For I have riches more than these

[Tell me someone why there's only confusion]
[Tell me someone that this is all an illusion]
[Tell me someone]
[Tell me someone]

[Tell me someone why this talk of revolution]
[Tell me someone when we're changing evolution]
[Tell me someone]
[Tell me someone]

[Changes in my life]
[Changes in my life]
[Changes in my life]
[Changes in my life]
 
Look out on the hedgerow
As the world rushes by
Hear the birds sing a sigh

One more tree will fall, 
how strong the growing vine
Turn the earth to sand and still commit no crime
How one thought will live provide the others die
For I have riches more than these
For I have riches more than these

Nice To Be Here (Ray Thomas) Nice to be here hope you agree Lying in the sun Lovely weather, must climb a tree The show has just begun All the leaves start swaying To the breeze that's playing On a thousand violins And the bees are humming To a frog sat strumming On a guitar with only one string I can see them they can't see me I feel out of sight I can see them they can't see me Much to my delight And it seems worth noting Water rats were boating As a lark began to sing The sounds kept coming With Jack Rabbit loudly drumming On the side of a biscuit tin I can see them they can't see me I feel out of sight I can see them they can't see me Much to my delight Silver minnows were devising Water ballet so surprising A mouse played a daffodil A mole came up blinking Underneath an owl who's thinking How he came to be sat on a hill I can see them they can't see me I feel out of sight I can see them they can't see me Much to my delight I know you won't believe me But I'm certain that I did see A mouse playing daffodil All the band was really jumping With Jack Rabbit in there thumping I found that I couldn't sit still I just had to make it with them 'Cause they played my kind of rhythm And the bees hummed in harmony And the owl played his oboe Then the frog's guitar solo It was all just too much for me I know you won't believe me But I'm certain that I did see A mouse playing daffodil All the band was really jumping With Jack Rabbit in there thumping I found that I couldn't sit still...
You Can Never Go Home (Justin Hayward) I don't know what I'm searching for I never have opened the door Tomorrow might find me at last Turning my back on the past But time will tell Of stars that fell A million years ago Memories can never take you back Home, sweet home You can never go home anymore All my life I never really knew me till today Now I know why I'm just another step along the way I lie awake for hours I'm just waiting for the sun When the journey we are making has begun Don't deny the feeling That is stealing through your heart Every happy ending needs to have a start All my life I never really knew me till today, Now I know why I'm just another step along the way Weep no more for treasures You've been searching for in vain 'Cause the truth is gently falling With the rain High above the forest Lie the pastures of the sun Where the two that learned the secret Now are one I don't know what I'm searching for I never have opened the door Tomorrow might find me at last Turning my back on the past Ah, time will tell Of stars that fell A million years ago Memories can never take you back Home, sweet home You can never go home anymore
My Song (Mike Pinder) I'm going to sing my song And sing it all day long A song that never ends How can I tell you All the things inside my head? The change in these past years Has made me see our world In many different ways How can I tell you? Love can change our destiny Love can change the world Love can change your life Do what makes you happy Do what you know is right! And love with all your might Before it's too late Where did I find all these words? Something inside of me is burning There's life in other worlds Maybe they'll come to earth Helping man to find a way One day I hope we'll be In perfect harmony A planet with one mind Then I could tell you All the things inside my head I'm going to sing my song And sing it all day long A song that never ends How can I tell you All the things inside my head? I'm going to sing my song A song that never ends...
