The Voice
(Justin Hayward)

Won't you take me back to school?
I need to learn the golden rule
Won't you lay it on the line?
I need to hear it just one more time
Oh, won't you tell me again
Can you feel it?
Won't you tell me again
Tonight

Each and every heart it seems
Is bounded by a world of dreams
Each and every rising sun
Is greeted by a lonely one
Oh won't you tell me again
Can you feel it?
Oh won't you tell me again
Tonight

'Cause out on the ocean of life my love
There's so many storms we must rise above
Can you hear the spirit calling?
As it's carried across the waves
You're already falling
It's calling you back to face the music
And the song that is coming through
You're already falling
The one that it's calling 
Is you

Make a promise, take a vow
And trust your feelings, it's easy now
Understand the voice within
And feel the changes already beginning
Oh, won't you tell me again
Can you feel it?
Won't you tell me again
Tonight

And how many words have I got to say?
And how many times will it be this way?
With your arms around the future
And your back up against the past
You're already falling
It's calling you on to face the music
And the song that is coming through
You're already falling
The one that it's calling 
Is you

Each and every heart it seems
Is bounded by a world of dreams
Each and every rising sun
Is greeted by a lonely, lonely one
Won't you tell me again
Can you feel it?
Oh won't you tell me again
Tonight

Talking Out Of Turn (John Lodge) When I took a little loving from you Oh I never thought about the hurting inside But I took a little more than I should Oh why can't explain that I ever would Let you slip through my fingers Let you escape like yesterday I would appreciate you knowing I thought your love had come to stay Talking out of turn Shot to pieces When will I learn? Talking out of turn Shot to pieces When will I learn? But I took a little more of your each day When I didn't see that I was breaking you apart With angry words of love I didn't mean Oh I can't believe that I ever would Talk myself out of tomorrow Talked like a fool to yesterday And as the evening loses colour Your love began to fade away [Fade Away...] Talking out of turn Shot to pieces When will I learn? Talking out of turn Shot to pieces When will I learn? Talking out of turn Talking out of turn If I upset you I didn't mean to hurt you I didn't mean to make you cry I don't need an alibi To start me talking out of turn When I took a little loving from you Oh I can't believe that I ever would Let you slip through my fingers Let you escape like yesterday I would appreciate you knowing I thought your love had come to stay Talking out of turn Shot to pieces When will I learn? Talking out of turn Shot to pieces When will I learn?
Gemini Dream (Justin Hayward & John Lodge) Long time, no see Short time for you and me So fine, so good We're on the road Like you knew we would First night, so long State of mind What can go wrong? We're here, the time is right To rock 'n' roll Right through the night Make it work out Make it work Make it work out Make it work out For each other tonight Stage fright, candle light You can let go Tonight's the night Came back for you Glad to see That you came, too There's a place, a Gemini dream There's no escaping from the love we have seen So come with me, turn night to day You're gonna wake up You know you're gonna wake up in a Gemini dream Turned round to see Where we've been And what we believe In life, love Take a chance See it through You'll be glad That you came, too There's a place a Gemini dream There's no escaping from the love we have seen So come with me, turn night to day You're gonna wake up You know you're gonna wake up in a Gemini dream Long time, no see The lights go up For you and me We're here The time is right To rock 'n' roll Right through the night Living it Believing it Wanting it Make it work out Make it work Make it work out Make it work out For each other tonight Long time no see Short time for you and me So fine, so far, so good We're on the road Like you knew we would
In My World (Justin Hayward) In my world It's heaven on earth when you're close to me I could see That moment of truth when you spoke to me In my world It's never too late, we can both be free In my world It's heaven on earth when you're near If you knew The changes I feel that you put me through And you do I see in your eyes that you really do And it's true It happened so fast that it must be true In my world It's heaven on earth when you're near And I'm only just beginning To believe what you have done How you turned it upside down This world of mine And it seems while I was looking It was right in front of me All the time In my world It's heaven on earth when you're close to me I could see That moment of truth when you spoke to me In my world It's never too late we can both be free In my world It's heaven on earth when you're near 'Cause I'm only just beginning To believe what you have done How you turned it upside down This world of mine And it seems while I was looking It was right in front of me All the time If you knew The changes I feel that you put me through And you do I see in your eyes that you really do And it's true It happened so fast that it must be true In my world It's heaven on earth when you're near
Meanwhile (Justin Hayward) Just in a simple conversation You can hear the feeling change Like a river running down Down to the sea And if you need an explanation I defy you to explain But something's not the same And it's bothering me I think I see where I went wrong I think I see what's going on Meanwhile and far away As the night draws in He's holding her right now I can feel it all begin Meanwhile and far away When the day is done I ride away, my friend Into the setting sun And the river's running down Down to the sea I let love slip right through my fingers And I watched it drift away But still I had to say What was written for me I thought I'd end up as the hero Thought the glory would be mine Very soon I was to find It wasn't to be 'Cause in this part I've got to play It doesn't quite turn out that way Meanwhile and far away As the night draws in He's holding her right now I can feel it, I can feel it all begin Meanwhile and far away When the day is done I ride away, my friend Into the setting sun And the river's running down Down to the sea

Nervous (John Lodge) Why I am so nervous? Please explain to me Why I can't sleep I close my eyes to shelter In the dark I try to hide If you leave me on my own I'm worried I could lose my way In my mind's confusion I see you everywhere But we don't speak I try so hard to touch you But you're always out of reach If you walked right by Would I see in it your eye? Would you turn away? Seems to me I've been a long time On this road Has there been a sign Another way And I've passed it by? I don't know what it is that drives me on Gotta keep movin' Gotta keep movin' on Bring it on home Let's bring it on home, your love Bring it on home Let's bring it on home, your love Bring it on home Let's bring it on home, your love Down parallel lines Don't question faith Don't answer lies Tell me why I'm nervous Please explain to me Why I can't sleep Please explain to me Why you're always out of reach If the water ran dry Would I see it in your eye? Would you walk away? It seems to me I've been a long time on this road And I wonder why Has there been a sign that points another way And I've passed it by? I don't know what it is that drives me on Gotta keep movin' Gotta keep movin' on Bring it on home Let's bring it on home, your love Bring it on home Let's bring it on home, your love Bring it on home Let's bring it on home, your love Down parallel lines Don't question faith Don't answer lies You know you gotta keep movin' Bring it on home Let's bring it on home, your love Bring it on home Let's bring it on home, your love [Straight lines before my eyes...] [Straight lines before my eyes...] [Straight lines before my eyes...] [Straight lines before my eyes...] [Straight lines before my eyes...]
Painted Smile (Ray Thomas) I can sing I can dance Just give me a chance To do my turn for you There's a change I'll slip But with stiff upper lip I'll sing a song for you Laughter is free But it's so hard to be a jester All the time And no one's believing I'm the same when I'm bleeding And I hurt all the time deep inside I've shed a tear for the lying While everyday trying To paint this smile for you Backflips, cartwheelings Somersault feelings What is there left to do? Laughter is free But it's so hard for me A jester all the time No one's believing I'm the same when I'm bleeding And I hurt all the time deep inside Roll up, roll up Enjoy the show Pick me up, wind me up, put me down You'll see me go And this painted smile May miss for a while Then come back and steal your show I sing, I dance Give me a chance to do my turn for you With backflips, cartwheelings, Somersault feelings What's there left to do? Laughter is free But it's so hard to be a jester All the time No one's believing I'm the same when I'm bleeding And I hurt all the time deep inside Laughter is free But it's so hard to be a jester All the time No one's believing I'm the same when I'm bleeding And I hurt all the time deep inside
Reflective Smile (Ray Thomas) Your painted smile hides you, still While you search yourself within Yesterday and tomorrow's found Fused as one upon solid ground As all around the milling crowd Confuse themselves with raging sounds And their love's forgetfulness abounds So be thankful for your greasepaint, clown If Loneliness wears the crown Of the Veteran Cosmic Rocker
Veteran Cosmic Rocker (Ray Thomas) The lights go down The stage is set The man in the wings breaks out in sweat A backstage joker spiked his coke While the dressing room was full of smoke A crowd of fools got him high He's afraid he's gonna die He's the apple of their eye He steps into the remaining light The crowd go wild He's outta sight Arms held high in the sign of peace His manager signed the one night lease The house is full, getting high He's afraid he's gonna die He's the apple of their eye He struts, he strolls His love is rock 'n' roll He's the Veteran Cosmic Rocker He steps into the remaining light The crowd go wild, he's out of sight Arms held high in the sign of peace His manager's signed a one night lease The crowd are full getting high He's afraid he's gonna die He's the apple of their eye He struts, he strolls His life is rock 'n' roll He's the Veteran Cosmic Rocker He's afraid that he will die...
