Lost In A Lost World
(Mike Pinder)

I woke up today 
I was crying
Lost in a lost world
So many people are dying
Lost in a lost world

Some of them are living an illusion
Bounded by the darkness of their minds
In their eyes it's nation 
against nation against nation
With racial pride
Sad hearts they hide
Thinking only of themselves
They shun the light
They think they're right
Living in their empty shells

Oh, can you see their world is crashing?
Crashing down around their feet
Angry people in the street
Telling them they've had their fill
Of politics that wound and kill

The seeds of evolution
Revolution never won
It's just another form of gun
To do again what they have done
With all our brothers' youngest sons

Everywhere you go you see them searching
Everywhere you turn you feel the pain
Everyone is looking for the answer
Well look again, come on my friend
Love will find us in the end
Come on my friend
We've got to bend
Down on our knees and say a prayer

Oh, can you see the world is pining
Pining for someone who really cares 
enough to share his love
With all of us, so we can be
An ever loving family

Have we forgotten we're all children?
Children from a family tree
That's longer than a centipede
Started long ago when you and I
Were only love

I woke today, I was crying
Lost in a lost world
So many people are dying
Lost in a lost world
So many people, so many people
Lost in a lost world
So many people, so many people
Lost in a lost world


New Horizons (Justin Hayward) Well I've had dreams enough for one And I've got love enough for three I have my hopes to comfort me I got my new horizons out to sea But I'm never going to lose your precious gift It will always be that way And I know I'm going to find My own peace of mind Someday, someway Where is this place that we have found Nobody knows where we are bound I long to hear, I need to see 'Cause I've shed tears too many for me But I'm never going to lose your precious gift It will always be that way 'Cause I know I'm going to find my own peace of mind Someday, someway On the wind soaring free Spread your wings I'm beginning to see Out of mind far from view Beyond the reach of the nightmare come true Well I've had dreams enough for one And I got love enough for three I have my hopes to comfort me I got my new horizons out to sea But I'm never going to lose your precious gift It will always be that way 'Cause I know I'm going to find my own peace of mind Someday, someway
For My Lady (Ray Thomas) My boat sails stormy seas Battles oceans filled with tears At last my port's in view Now that I've discovered you Oh I'd give my life so lightly For my gentle lady Give it freely and completely To my lady As life goes drifting by Like a breeze she'll gently sigh And slowly bow her head Then you'll hear her softly cry Oh I'd give my life so lightly For my gentle lady Give it freely and completely To my lady Words that you say when we're alone Though actions speak louder than words But all I can say is I love you so To drive away all my hurt Oh I'd give my life so lightly For my gentle lady Give it freely and completely To my lady Set sail before the sun Feel the warmth that's just begun Share each and every dream They belong to everyone. Oh I'd give my life so lightly For my gentle lady Give it freely and completely To my lady
Isn't Life Strange (John Lodge) Isn't life strange? A turn of the page Can read like before Can we ask for more? Each day passes by How hard will man try? The sea will not wait You know it makes me want to cry, cry, cry Wish I could be in your heart To be one with your love Wish I could be in your eyes Looking back there you were And here we are Isn't love strange? A word we arrange With no thought or care Maker of despair Each breath that we breathe With love we must weave To make us as one You know it makes me want to cry, cry, cry Wish I could be in your heart To be one with your love Wish I could be in your eyes Looking back there you were And here we are Isn't life strange? A turn of the page A book without light Unless with love we write To throw it away To lose just a day The quicksand of time You know it makes me want to cry, cry, cry Wish I could be in your heart To be one with your love Wish I could be in your eyes Looking back there you were And here we are

You And Me
(Justin Hayward & Graeme Edge)

There's a leafless tree in Asia
Under the sun there's a homeless man
There's a forest fire in the valley
Where the story all began

What will be our last thought?
Do you think it's coming soon?
Will it be a comfort
Or the pain of a burning wound?

All we are trying to say
Is we are all we've got
You and me just cannot fail
If we never, never stop

You're an ocean full of faces
And you know that we believe
We're just a wave that drifts around you
Singing all our hopes and dreams

We look around in wonder
At the work that has been done
By the visions of our father
Touched by his loving son

All we are trying to say
Is we are all we've got
You and me just cannot fail
If we never, never stop

All we are trying to say
Is we are all we've got
You and me just cannot fail
If we never, never stop

You and me just cannot fail
If we never, ever, never, ever stop

The Land Of Make-Believe (Justin Hayward) We're living in a land of make-believe And trying no to let it show Maybe in that land of make-believe Heartaches can turn into joy We're breathing in the smoke of high and low We're taking up a lot of room Somewhere in the dark and silent night Our prayer will be heard Make it soon So fly little bird Up into the clear blue sky And carry the word Love's the only reason why, why Open all the shutters on your windows Unlock all the locks upon your doors Brush away the cobwebs from your daydreams No secrets come between us anymore Oh, say it's true Only love can see you through You know what love can do to you We're living in a land of make believe And trying not to let it show... Maybe in that land of make believe Heartaches can turn into joy We're breathing in the smoke of high and low We're taking up a lot of room Somewhere in the dark and lonely night Our prayer will be heard Make it soon So fly little bird Up into the clear blue sky And carry the word Love's the only reason why... Open all the shutters on your windows Unlock all the locks upon your doors Brush away the cobwebs from your daydreams No secrets come between us anymore Oh, say it's true Only love can see you through You know what love can do to you
When You're A Free Man (Mike Pinder) Time quickly passes by If only we could talk again Someday I know I'll see you smiling When you're a free man again High on a mountain side We laughed and talked of things to come Someway I know I'll see you shining When we're all free men again You left your country for peace of mind And something tells me you're doing all right How are the children and Rosemary? I long to see you And be in your company Someday I know I'll see you smiling When you're a free man again I often wonder why Our world has gone so far astray Someway I know I'll see you shining When we're all free men again You gave love freely to those with tears Your eyes were sad then you saw the need You know that love lasts for eternity Let's be God's children And live in perfect peace Peace, perfect peace Perfect peace Peace Someway I know I'll see you shining When you're a free man When we're all free men again
I'm Just A Singer
(In A Rock And Roll Band)
(John Lodge) I'm just a wandering on the face of this earth Meeting so many people Who are trying to be free And while I'm traveling I hear so many words Language barriers broken Now we've found the key And if you want the wind of change To blow about you And you're the only other person to know Don't tell me I'm just a singer in a rock and roll band A thousand pictures can be drawn from one word Only who is the artist? We gotta agree A thousand miles can lead so many ways Just to know who is driving What a help it would be So if you want this world of yours To turn about you And you can see exactly what to do Please tell me I'm just a singer in a rock and roll band. How can we understand Riots by the people for the people Who are only destroying themselves And when you see a frightened person Who is frightened by the people Who are scorching this earth I'm just a wandering on the face of this earth Meeting so many people Who are trying to be free And while I'm traveling I hear so many words Language barriers broken Now we've found the key And if you want the wind of change To blow about you And you're the only other person to know Don't tell me I'm just a singer in a rock and roll band How can we understand Riots by the people for the people Who are only destroying themselves And when you see a frightened person Who is frightened by the people Who are scorching this earth Music is the traveler crossing our world Meeting so many people Bridging the seas I'm just a singer in a rock and roll band We're just the singers in a rock and roll band I'm just a singer in a rock and roll band
