Steppin' In A Slide Zone
(John Lodge)

I took a ride in a limousine
I took a road I'd never been
I met a stranger by the way
His coat was torn but his eyes were clear

Standing in a slide zone
Steppin' in a slide zone

He told me where the river flows
He showed me how the apple grows
He told me of a magic stream
His face was worn but his eyes were clear

Standing in a slide zone
I could be steppin' in a slide zone
Standing in a slide zone
I could be steppin' through a time zone

He went to find a shooting star
Around the bend that's where they are
I went along just for the ride
Suddenly I began to slide

Standing in a slide zone
I could be steppin' through a time zone

The air raced by there was no sound
We drifted high above the ground
And then he said, "You know this place"
And then a smile lit up his face

Standing in a slide zone
I could be steppin' in a slide zone
Standing in a slide zone
I could be steppin' through a time zone

I turned my head and looked below
And there was something that I know
Suddenly I began to fall
I looked around and tried to call

Standing in a slide zone
He had me steppin' in a time zone
Standing in a slide zone
Falling through a time zone

"Help me please!" I thought I said
Then something happened in my head
Music came from all around
And I knew what I had found

Standing in a slide zone
Falling through a time zone
Steppin' in a slide zone
He had me falling through a time zone

Under Moonshine (Ray Thomas) The dawn crept into my room And stole my dream Now I'll never know Just what it means Or what could have been Yet still I try to lie But I'm seen Under moonshine That's where I've been Under moonshine I'm clearly seen Under moonshine That's where I've been Under moonshine I'm clearly seen Creator of dreams That melt with the sun I'll tell you the things This man has done He was a saint And sinner rolled in one But I miss now that he's gone I said I sure miss him Now that he's gone Sure I feel the pain Deep inside I pour like rain Remember when you smile Love's in your eyes [Melt with the sun] [This man has done] [Rolled into one] [Now that he's gone] [Now that he's gone] The world keeps turning The grass still grows green The fruit on my tree is the Biggest you've ever seen But which way's up? You know when you're down You've gotta stand tall With your feet on the ground You must stand tall With your feet on the ground Or maybe I'm crazy And also they say I'm lazy But I'll have my days When I do as I please For you won't see the woods While you're a tree No you'll never see the woods While you're a tree Yes I'm crazy Also they say I'm lazy But I'll have my days When I do as I please You won't see the woods While you're a tree No you'll never see the woods While you're a tree [Grass still grows green] [Biggest you've seen] [Know when you're down] [Feet on the ground] [Feet on the ground] [The dawn] [Crept into my room and stole my dream] [Now I'll never know] [What it means] [Under moonshine] [Under moonshine] [The dawn] [Crept into my room and stole my dream] [Now I'll never know] [What it means] [Under moonshine] [Under moonshine]
Had To Fall In Love (Justin Hayward) What mattered to me Was the right to be free Like I'll be, someday I'm waiting for my heart to lead the way The places I've seen And the road in between Make me wonder why I'm searching for my dreams up in the sky I heard the call And in the mirror I saw the writing on the wall And I had to fall In love with you The face that I've known Seems so lost and alone When you're far away I'm comin' for you, baby, right away The places I've seen And the roads in between Make me wonder why I'm searching for my dreams up in the sky I heard the call And in the mirror I saw the writing on the wall And I had to fall In love with you What mattered to me Was the right to be free Like I'll be someday I'm waiting for my heart To lead the way
I'll Be Level With You (Graeme Edge) Little guy Little hands Little eyes And lots of time Whatcha gonna be What you gonna see When your eyes are level with mine? I'll be level with you I don't know what I would do If I had to face the things That you've got coming down the line If I had to face the things That you've got coming down the line Lots of luck Lots of health Lots of wealth And little pain That's what I want for you But there's little I can do To put you on the gravy train I'll be level with you You'll always end up coming through But you'll find yourself Lost in space now and again But you'll find yourself Lost in space now and again But you have to have a world you can live in Not a world where all the hope is gone And as long as we are here together We'll try to build a home for the free Filled with pity Not pain That's loving and sane Not divided by hate And living in spite 'Til it's too late Life is here Love will come In the end Give it time There's wonders still to do And I know you'll find it's true That yours will be bigger than mine I'll be level with you The one thing I hope you will do Is tell me about what you're doing From time to time Tell me 'bout what you're doing From time to time
Driftwood (Justin Hayward) Just like the driftwood of a dream Left on the seashore of sleep Just like the words that wouldn't rhyme Lost in the desert of time Time waits for no one at all No, not even you You thought you'd seen it all before You really thought you knew I don't remember what was said In the confusion that night I only know what's on my mind What's in the future we will decide Time waits for no one at all No, not even you You thought you'd seen it all before You really thought you knew I've shattered the illusion Of fortune and of fame But darling, now I know you Life could never be the same Oh no, don't leave me driftwood On the shore Time waits for no one, my love No, not even you You thought you'd seen it all before You really thought you knew I've shattered the illusion Of fortune and of fame I'm waking up I'm reaching up I'm getting up from this game Oh no, don't leave me driftwood On the shore No, don't, don't leave me driftwood On the shore

Top Rank Suite
(Justin Hayward)

Rain on the river
Turns the torrent to a flood
Swim or you'll never rise above
Two lonely people
Can mend a broken heart
Love and you'll never fall apart

But can you tell me why?

They made a good bowl of chili at the jazz club
They played a good game of football in Mucron
They got everyone off at the Top Rank babe 
If you could ever get into their suite 
Avenue Tombola and Social
We just drove right on by
We was on our way to the big time, baby
To the great gold record in the sky

Sun in the morning
Brings the flowers from a bud
Hail to the giver
Of life and love
Two lonely people
Can mend a broken heart
Love you'll never fall apart

But can you tell me why?

They made a good bowl of chili at the jazz club
They played a good game of football in Mucron
They got everyone off at the Top Rank babe
If you could ever get into their suite
Avenue Tombola and Social
We just drove right on by
We were on our way to the big time babe
To the great gold record in the sky

But can you tell me why?


I'm Your Man (Ray Thomas) Here I go again Finding it so hard to explain The way I feel when I hold you near Still it hurts when you cry Maybe you think love has passed you by Don't you know I need you so? But I guess you need to know I'm just a man, that's all I am I'm just a man, that's yours I'm yours, you know I'm yours Life keeps changing key I'll look to you please look back at me See I'm changing every day Reaching out for happy days But I'm just a man that's all I am I'm just a man I'm yours I'm simply yours Life keeps changing key I'll look to you please turn and look at me You'll see I'm changing every day In my search for happy days But then I'm just a man That's all I am I'm just a man I'm yours That's yours, simply yours See me as I am, for I'm just a man I'm just a man but I'm yours Oh I'm yours I'm simply yours
Survival (John Lodge) Shadows of night Falling over my head People walking Passing me by Shadows of dreams Falling out of the blue People talkin' What can I do? Where do I go from here? Where do I go from here? I could give you any dream and watch it grow I could take you for a ride but you would know? I could tell you every answer that I know It wouldn't be much though It wouldn't be anything you didn't know But survival Nothing more than survival Survival Nothing more than survival Shadows of days Hanging endless in time Slowly fading Passing us by Shadows of worlds Disappearing from view People asking What could we do? Where do I go from here? Where do I go from here? If I gave you every dream, would they grow? If I took you for a ride, would you know? If I told you every answer that I know It wouldn't be much though It wouldn't be anything you didn't know But survival Nothing more Than survival Survival With nothing more Than survival Survival Nothing more Than survival Survival With nothing more Than survival Survival With nothing more Than survival Survival With nothing more Than survival Survival With nothing more Than survival Survival With nothing more Than survival Survival With nothing more Than survival Survival With nothing more Than survival [In your love I have all] [That I need for survival] [With your love] [I have all that I need for Survival] [With your love] [I have all that I need for Survival] [With your love] [I have all that I need for Survival] [With your love] [I have all that I need for Survival]
One Step Into The Light (Mike Pinder) One step into the light One step away from night It's the hardest step you're gonna take The ship to take you there Is waiting at the head Of the stairs that lead up through your opening mind Above the dark despair Shines a light that we can share Close your eyes and look up in between your brows Then slowly breathing in Feel the life force streaming in Hold it there, then send it back to him All the old things are returning Cosmic circles ever turning All the truth we've been yearning for Life is our saviour Saviour Save your Save your soul The river of living breath Is flowing through the sun He was there before the earth began The world will drag on you Use his love to pull you through Find the mission of your life And start to be All the old things are returning Cosmic circles ever turning All the truth we've been yearning for Life is our saviour Saviour Save your Save your soul There's one thing I can do Play my Mellotron for you Try to blow away your city blues Your dreams are not unfound Get your feet back on the ground The truth will set us free, we cannot lose We cannot love, we just have to choose
The Day We Meet Again (Justin Hayward) The day we meet again I'll be waiting there I'll be waiting there for you 'Cause the years have been so lonely Like a dog without a home It's dangerous when you find out You've been drinking on your own The day we meet again We will walk in peace Through the garden down the road Where the mist of time is lifting See it rising in the air Like the shadow I was chasing When I looked it wasn't there Oh, no But just in case you're wondering What was really on my mind It wasn't what you took my love It's what you left behind And just in case you're wondering Will it really be the same? You know we're only living for The day me meet again So hold on And don't let go Time heals You know, I know The day we meet again I'll be waiting there I'll be waiting there for you 'Cause the years have been so lonely Like a dog without a home It's dangerous when you find out You've been drinking on your own The day we meet again We will walk in peace Through the garden down the road Where the mist of time is lifting See it rising in the air Like the shadow I was chasing When I looked it wasn't there Hold on baby, don't let go
