English Sunset
(Justin Hayward)

I want to ride the range
Across those skies of black
I want to see for myself
And see me coming back
And when I've gone the distance
I'll be making tracks
For an English sunset

We're on a runaway train
Rolling down the track
And where it's taking us to
Who knows where it's at
But if we hold together
We can make it back
For an English sunset
We want an English sunset

I feel the rhythm of the earth
In my soul tonight
May it never fade away
And I've decided I can live
With humility
And the sad decay
'Cause that's the English way

We keep the faith alive
In everything we do
And at the end of the road
We still keep coming through
And though it's sad and sorry
What else can we do?
It's an English sunset
An English sunset [More tea, Vicar?]

I feel the rhythm of the earth
In my soul tonight
May it never fade away
And I've decided they can wait
For the requiem
We take it day by day
'Cause that's the English way
I saw the English sunset  [ENGLAND!!]


Haunted (Justin Hayward) I really miss you when the nights are long And only silence is heard in this world of song But life goes on And forever more I'll be haunted by your love I see you walking through the gates of home And then I wake up to find I'm still all alone I should have known But forever more I'll be haunted by your love Lonely is the river as it tumbles to the ocean Searching for our future We can't find our way back home My only comfort is the love we shared And as I walk through this world With sadness everywhere I've had my share And forever more I'll be haunted by your love And forever more I'll be haunted by your love Standing in the doorway As the sunrise greets the morning Searching for our future We can't find our way back home I really miss you when the nights are long And only silence is heard in this world of song But life goes on And forever more I'll be haunted by your love Haunted by your love Haunted by your love
Sooner or Later (Walking On Air) (Justin Hayward a John Lodge) Walk on the water Swim with the life tide Clear away the storm clouds You got to roll with the punches Shelter from the weather Have no fear of the darkness Sooner or later, oh Sooner or later, oh We'll be walkin' on air Live for the moment 'Cause life is worth living Love will surround you Sooner or later, oh Sooner or later, oh We'll be walkin' on air We'll be walkin' on air Love is out there waiting for you Wearing no disguise Nothing left behind closed doors It's right before your eyes So take a walk in the sunshine Send a message on your online Then you can do it in your own time Sooner or later, oh Sooner or later, oh We'll be walkin' on air Walkin' on air We'll be walkin' on air Walk on the water Shelter from the weather Clear away the storm clouds Sooner or later, oh Sooner or later, oh Sooner or later, oh Sooner or later, oh We'll be walkin' on air Walkin' on air We'll be walkin' on air
Wherever You Are (John Lodge) These times have passed and gone It's time that we moved on Into a new tomorrow And leave behind the hurt The sorrow and the pain 'Cause tonight will never Pass this way again Wherever you are Wherever you go Wherever you stand Let your shadow show Whatever you think Whatever you do Whatever you want Let your feelings show These times have passed and gone It's time that we moved on Into a new tomorrow And leave behind the hurt The sorrow and the pain 'Cause tonight will never pass this way again 'Cause tonight will never pass this way again Just like the winter sun That hides behind the dawn Just like the shifting sands That ride upon the storm Tonight will never pass this way again 'Cause tonight will never pass this way again 'Cause tonight will never pass this way again 'Cause tonight will never pass this way again
Foolish Love (Justin Hayward) We ran through the summer fields Between the earth and sky Little did we realize We were flying you and I We sang to the stars above We praised the earth below You fell into my arms that night And I've never let you go It was beautiful, glorious We were riding on a wave With foolish hearts, and foolish love We would give ourselves away Remember how we cried out loud Heard angry voices shout I love you as I loved you then No danger and no doubt It was beautiful, glorious We were riding on a wave With foolish hearts, and foolish love We would give ourselves away And now as we look behind To see the road of life Turning to the ones we love Salvation is in sight 'Cause it was beautiful, glorious We were riding on a wave With foolish hearts, and foolish love We would give ourselves away Remember how we cried out loud Heard angry voices shout I love you as I loved you then No danger and no doubt
Love Don't Come Easy (John Lodge) The way you looked at me tonight I've never seen that look In your eyes before But then again I don't think I've ever looked Had the time to spare The will to share with you What have I missed What have I done I'm gonna turn back the tide Like it's just begun Time changes Time changes Time changes for the better After all we've been through Love don't come easy for me The way you looked into my eyes I could see the hurt I saw through your disguise Just give me time I can make it up to you Let me heal the pain I'm scared of losing you What have I missed Where have I gone wrong If I could turn back the time So we've just begun Time changes Time changes Time changes for the better After all we've been through Love don't come easy for me For me What have I missed What have I done I'm gonna turn back the tide So we've just begun Time changes Time changes Time changes for the better After all we've been through Love don't come easy for me Love don't come easy After all we've been through Love don't come easy for me Love don't come easy
All That Is Real Is You (Justin Hayward) All the world over I've searched for a dream I've found out that life is not what it seems I've seen all the wonders the world has to give But all that is real is you All of the silver and all of the gold Seems worthless to me Lifeless and cold I've known all the treasure A man can possess But all that is real is you So bring me back home My love, my love Oh how I need you Take me back home My love, my love Oh how I love you Even the place where my heart used to fly The warm summer breeze The wild seabirds cry All are illusions and all just a dream 'Cause all that is real is you So bring me back home My love, my love Oh how I need you Take me back home My love, my love Oh how I love you. All the world over I've searched for a dream I've found out that life is not what it seems I've seen all the wonders the world has to give But all that is real is you 'Cause all that is real is you

Strange Times
(Justin Hayward a John Lodge)

Long time ago
Back in the mist of time
Back when the crystal waters flowed
There was a world
So strange and so beautiful
All life would flourish and would grow

Years went by
Time just fell away
Love was worshipped like the sun
But as we arrive at the house of the water sign
We're living in strange times
Strange times, strange times

What do we need?
What do we hunger for?
Who holds the secrets, who will know?

Temples of greed
In ruins on the river bed
Wastelands that lived before the snow

Time stands still
As we race through the universe
On our way to the sun
And as we arrive at the house of the water sign
We're living in strange times
Strange times, strange times

It's you and I forever
We won't be afraid
Even if the stars are falling down, 
down, down, down, down
Falling down

Time stands still as we race through the universe
On our way to the sun
And as we arrive at the house of the water sign
We're living in strange times
Strange times, strange times
Strange times, strange times
Strange times, strange times

Words You Say (John Lodge) Words you say to me I listen in sympathy But I don't know what it is That makes me ignore you I hear you every night I listen but the words Don't seem right My mind seems somewhere else What else can I tell you? I don't know what to do I'm losing you Something I can't control You are in my heart and soul I don't want to wake up now I don't want to wake up now I don't want to wake up now I don't want to wake up now Words you say to me I'm living in fantasy If I don't know what it is I simply ignore you I hear you every night I listen but the time is never right My life is so confused What more can I tell you? Don't turn and walk away Don't leave this way Something I can't control You are in my heart and soul I don't want to wake up now I don't want to wake up now I don't want to wake up now
My Little Lovely (Ray Thomas) Fairy tales sometimes come true Use fairy dust and pixie glue Then all the love will stick to you My little lovely Always believe and never doubt That wizards cast their spells about There's such a lot you won't lose count If you look closely Ripples are like dreams Searching for the shore Poured together make oceans roar Night visions make spirits soar So choose one wisely Not all angels can grow wings They seem to soar by other means You can fly although it seems A little slowly Fairy tales sometimes come true Use fairy dust and pixie glue Then all the love will stick to you My little lovely Ripples are like dreams Searching for the shore Poured together make oceans roar Night visions make spirits soar My little lovely
Forever Now (John Lodge) If we could live forever Where would our dreams lead us to Living in a world of ever Changing expectation If it could be If it could be It would be forever now If we could be here forever Where in this world would heaven be As we race across the universe In search of confirmation Why can't it be Why can't it be Why can't it be forever now There's no way out There is no return There's no way back There's no way to learn The final act The curtain falls On the stage On the stage Standing at the crossroads Waiting for the new millennium For if it could be If it could be It would be forever now If we could live forever Where would our dreams lead us to Living in a children's world Of simple fascination If it could be, If it could be It would be forever now If it could be, If it could be It would be forever now For if it could be If it could be It would be forever now If it could be, If it could be It would be forever now
The One (Justin Hayward a John Lodge) No surprise Hey, that you wanna be the one again No surprise You wanna be the one Heard you had a story to tell Sold your soul in a kiss and tell Sliding down on a helter skelter ride Into yesterday No way out, the price of fame Once it's told will you be the same Rolling down on a roller coaster ride We'll be waiting for you No surprise Hey that you wanna be the one again No surprise No surprise Hey that you wanna be the one No surprise You wanna be the one Shock the world with your fall from grace Glory days gone without a trace No surprise you're a face without a name But we all still love you No surprise Hey that you wanna be the one again No surprise No surprise Hey that you wanna be the one No surprise You wanna be the one It's time to tell you We're faithful and true Take us back to the days When we could dream 'Cause it makes us happy No surprise Hey that you wanna be the one again No surprise No surprise Hey that you wanna be the one No surprise No surprise Hey that you wanna be the one again No surprise No surprise Hey that you wanna be the one No surprise No surprise Hey that you wanna be the one
The Swallow (Justin Hayward) Time goes by Seems like the blink of an eye It's so crazy What can we do? It's so strange Life in the really slow lane Take it easy That's what we'll do Just me and you In the wide outside See the swallow as he glides Like a spiral up to freedom We're all right Maybe get lucky tonight Only lovers feel like we do We take our time Leave all our worries behind No more mind games Simple and true That's what we'll do In the wide outside See the swallow as he glides Like a spiral up to freedom Time goes by Seems like the blink of an eye It's so crazy What can we do? It's so strange Life in the really slow lane Take it easy That's what we'll do Just me and you That's what we'll do Just me and you That's what we'll do
Nothing Changes (Graeme Edge) The dark cloak of winter's war Left a future still unsure Sitting in a class Of the future's past We saw a list of dates And we knew we would last To see them all 1984 was a year to fear Hope was dead A police state here Halley's comet was to fly by And we would see a shining In the night sky Now 2001 is soon to come And just as soon Will have come and gone Nothing changes Standing at the crossroads Of what is, will be, and was The obvious eludes us Not because the zeroes line up We should change our way of thought More, if we do not The way ahead Is dangerously fraught And if we did the things We all know to be right Left would be the childish fears Of danger in the night We, each of us are fine For we have all heard the word But grouped together Babel's triumph stampedes The thoughtless herd Nothing changes Nothing changes And nothing stays the same And life is still A simple game
