Hold On To Love
(Jon Anderson/Lamont Dozier)

There you have it
You see this love regretting
There's something wrong again
But you had it
In the palm of your hand

Your heart has started bleeding
You gotta get out
You're leaving
You're on your own forever

It's not the space or time or whether
You can leave
You want, you can't have
You need, you can't touch
You plead, it's enough, enough

There's something happening to ya
Love can see right through ya
In a world of make believe
Don't go throwing it all away

Hold on to love
Hold on to love
Treat it as a good thing
Be always ready
With that electric feeling

You work so hard
To be in love with her
She tries so hard
You gotta let it go

Hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on

The more and more yo uhear it
The more it seems to make sense
To hold love in the palm of your hand

But you think that round the corner
They're queuing up to hold her
But that won't make a difference in the end

There's never space or time or whether
Yo u can leave
You want, you can't have
You need, you can't touch
You plead, it's enough, enough

There's something happening to ya
Love can see right through ya
In a world of make believe
Don't go throwing it all away
Hold on to love
There's nothing more important
Treat it as a good thing
Be always ready
With that electric feeling

You work so hard
To be in love with her
She tries so hard
You gotta let it go

Hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on

You work so hard
To be in love with her
She tries so hard
You gotta let it go

Hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on

Hold on to love
There's nothing more important
Hold on to love
Don't let it pass you by
Hold on to love
There's nothing so important
Hold it in the palm of your had
Yeah, yeah

Hold on to love
There's nothing more important
Hold on to love
Don't ever let it pass you by

Hold on to love
Hold on to love
Treat it as a good thing
Treat it as a good thing
Treat it as a good, good thingback to top
If It Wasn't For Love (Oneness Family)
(Jon Anderson)

If it wasn't for love
The moon would disappear
The seas would crash into the land
The sun would not appear
The tears would dry up in the sand

If it wasn't for love

If it wasn't for love
The children of the sun
They would all but melt away
Believe me, that would be
An unncessary day-oh, my
If it wasn't for love

If it wasn't for love
I'd still be all alone
And completely in the dark
No friends would help me through the night
No singing in the park-oh, my
If it wasn't for love

All we need is the truth in our hand
Someone to call a friend
Never fear the darkness
All we need is just the sun in the sky
And the hope of a summer to come
With the meaning of love


If it wasn't for love
Well, how do you expect
A woman or a man
They'd dry up all inside
As if life has never begun

If it wasn't for love

If it wasn't for love
The world would disappear
And we would fly off to the sky
The hatred and the sorrow would be
Showing in our eyes-oh, y
If it wasn't for love

When the moment of truth comes alive
How we'll rejoice and sing the blues away
There's no telling just how we will feel
So important is that very day

We'll imagine a change in our heart
Sometimes it's hard to explain the truth
But we'll see and will know
There's no doubt about it
The meaning of love

If it wasn't for love
The moon would disappear
The seas would crash into the land
The sun would not appear
And tears would dry up in the sand

If it wasn't for love

If it wasn't for love
The children of the sun
They would all but melt away
Believe me, that would be
An unnecessary day-oh, my
If it wasn't for love

Oh, my-if it wasn't for love
Oh, my-if it wasn't for love
Oh, my-if it wasn't for love
Oh, my-if it wasn't for love
Oh, my-if it wasn't for love
Oh, my-if it wasn't for loveback to top
Sundancing (For The Hopi/Navajo Energy)
(Jon Anderson)

I, he said, release, hold it there
Cannot hold it down at all anymore
I begot a singer of song
How it looked to find this destiny there

I, he said, release to the laws
As he set to find the answer to give
How he chased so far for the laws
They would change his whole perception to live

See the sun can dance to the sky

So he walked to path a mountain to climb
With a song he walked right up to the sky
There, amazed, he saw as clear as the day
Getting into tune, we shout at the system

How we play, this man-made dream of the fear
Howe play, this man-made dream of desire
Howe we dance awake this song of the earth
Come along

The four new laws will enter the world
Add a new dimension changing it all

One new law, we travel so fast
Number two will be the salt of the earth

Number three will be our guide to the stars
Number four will be the witness to love
As the four new laws will enter the world
As the four new laws will enter the world

Come alive, the singers out of the sun
Come alive, the dancers out of the moon
Come alive, the passion all to the great
We can dance the Sundance all of the way

Can you dance the dream awake in your life

As he said, release, can't hold any longer

Only wanted too
Ever wanted too
Getting ready too
Always wanted too

As it ever is
As it ever will
As it ever can
As it ever is

Get, get, get, get, get, get what you need

See the four new laws will enter the world
See the four new laws will enter the world

See the four new laws will enter the world
See the four new laws will enter the worldback to top
Is It Me?
(Jon Anderson/Robert Lawrence)

Is it something
Is it something said
I know you're lost
Like someone who's lonely
And cannot see the way

I still love you
There's some things that bind
And so the tale is just a moral of love
It comes and it goes with time

Don't think about the worries
My love will change you
Someday you'll find room
In your heart for my love again

Is it me
Is it me that
Hurt you so badly
Are you ready
Are you changed for this
Because I know that it's not always going

The way you see
Things don't easily change
Those facts of life
That come with the moment
Just memories remain

Don't think about your worries
My love will change you
And open up this feeling of love
In your heart again

Was it me
Was it me that
Hurt you so badly
Are you ready
Are you changed for this
I couldn't stand another day without you

Is it love
Is it this live
Are you ready to be counting
I'm your lover
I'm your everything
And you won't always be telling me
It's all over

Was it me
It's another world
Was it me that
It's another time
Hurt you so badly
I can't believe in love without you

Are you ready
It's another day
Are you cahnged at all
It's another place
I couldn't stand another day without you
I can't believe in love without you

I'm in love
It's another world
I'm in this love
It's another time
It's not easy when I feel so strong about you
I can't believe in love without you

There's no other
It's another day
There's no one but you
It's another time
I couldn't stand another day without your love
I can't believe in love without youback to top
In A Lifetime
(Jon Anderson/Lamont Dozier)

You never realize
How you throw your love away
You never know how much it hurts
Living without love

I was the one
Who wandered on my own
Looking for some familiar road

I was a diamond man at night
I was a fool that couldn't believe at all
Then I met you once again
And you showed me you can't give
Until you're strong enough to love

How could I begin
With no foundation in my heart

And it wasn't until I saw
My life in your eyes

CHORUS
At last I've found true love
Without someone to love, without someone
There's no reason to live
At last I've found true love
In a lifetime

It's never the same
When your dreams have gone away
A day seems like a year
When your love has disappeared

I'm suddenly more aware of you
N' all the things that I've got to do
I'm yours forever and you're mine
And I just don't want to waste another
Day of time

CHORUS

There was a time, there was a time
I got caught in the middle
Of the darkest night-suddenly
Suddenly I could feel
A power so divine

Oh, don't you ever deny my heart
And all the things love stands for
'Cause there's no way
I could ever find a love so right
Not in any other lifetime
I believe this love's so right

At last I've found true love
Without some to love, without someone
There's no reason to live

At last I've found true love
True love
True love
In a lifetime
In a lifetime

At last I've found true love
Without someone to love
There's no reason at allback to top
For You
(Jon Anderson/David Paich)

Tell me that I would sing
Soft as a song would bring
All of a union together in my life
Tell me I'm everyone
As where my heart is searching
Now is finally resting again

Oh, for the perfect sound
Jon, Jon, for my life
As it's something that I must
Explain this and all to you
Haven't you guessed it
Haven't you guessed it at all
This song is for you
This song is for you

Oh, for the perfect sound
Jah, Jah, for my life
As it's something that I must
Explain this and all to you
Haven't you guessed it
Haven't you guessed it at all
This song is for you
This song is for youback to top
New Civilization
(Jon Anderson/Don Freeman/Gordon Peeke)

Can you imagine all the world
Decided where we're going
Can you imagine a new dance
They call it syncopation
Ain't it right to think the start
Of anything just means there's
Something going on-yeah
Something going on-yeah, yeah, yeah

We change our style
We change our clothes upon
The day called summer
To specialize electric
We called a connection brother
Can you imagine how the older
Order took this as a challenge
To democracy

That Saturday night dream
That Saturday night dream

Oh, the magic of it
Yes, it comes together
Oh, the magic of it
They just can't believe it

Living in a new civilization
Living in a new revelation
Living to the tune of a nation
Living in a new civilization

Can you imagine all the rites
Of summer coming closer
Where all is one and one is all
A freedom to discover
The magic songs will come
As all our dreams recover

The songs for the world sing
Songs of the wind
Songs of the sea
Songs of the fire
Songs of the earth

The singers of love

Oh, the magic of it
Yes, it comes together
Oh, the magic of it
Yes, the magic of it
Yes, they just can't believe it
They just can't believe it

We're living in a new civilization
We're living in a new revelation
We're living to the sounds of a nation
We're living in a new civilization

Couldn't stand anymore for a minute
Just looked into the future
It was, it was
As though 'round the corner
Through the ever magic door
Of Persopolis
The changinng order
The incredible journey for all

All our countries
All our people
Beyond war
Space travel
Colorful children
Just simply a new
A new civilization

There within our reach
There within our grasp

I've seen it
Believe me
Now, now, now

I've seen it
Believe me
Now, now, now

I've seen it
Believe me
Now, now, nowback to top
It's On Fire
(Jon Anderson/Don Freeman)

I may not always be the one
But until something comes along
It's never easy but I know
Without you where would I go

I may not always stoop to win
'Cause we can change how we begin
I won't edeny my brothers' sight
Without them now will I fly

Same chance
Same time
Come along

How can I tell you what to be
When you're the best judge of yourself
You hold a power so unique
You have the power to change your world

Same chance
Same steps along the way
Same chance
Same time

I may not always be the one
But until something comes along
It's never easy but I now
Without you where would I go

You may not always see me win
Doesn't mean I won't be dreamin
I can stand as tall as the sky
With this feeling
Wanting only just to be near you
Wanting only just to be near you

Same time
Same place under the sun
Same chance
See, it's almost there

Wanting only just to be with you
Wanting only just to be with you
To be near you
This time

Same time
Same place under the sun
Same chance
It is everywhere

Wanting only just to be near you
Wanting only just to be near you
Wanting only just to be near you

I may not always be the one
But until something comes along
It's never easy, but I know
Without you where would I go

I may not always stoop to win
Doesn't mean I won't be dreamin'
I won't deny my brothers' sight
Without them how will I flyback to top
Betcha
(Jon Anderson/Rhett Lawrence)

It was the perfect opportunity
Looking at your quick mistakes
So yo u finally went and did it
You screamed and ran away

It was the perfect chance
The mystery school
It's all for beginners
How we knew it then
But that didn't mean a thing

So we stacked our promises
To the mothers of invention
Then yo u chased the spiral dream
Wit hthe brothers of time

So you gave your heart of hearts
To the sisters of the union
You were left so high and dry
Just give it up
Just give a little time

Betcha never thought
You'd make
Betcha never thought
You'd see the light of day
Betcha never thought
You'd make it


You were dancing faster all the time
Living life so down and out
But it was so magnificent
You couldn't leave it all alone

So you chased your dreams
When they sing to you, "Bon jour"
It's the perfect dream
But that didn't mean a thing

Something tells me you know who you are
You just make believe it all
Something tells me you were
Just waiting for that perfect time

See this reality
It's the mother of invention
You can spin the spiral dream
Sister, brother, sister of time

CHORUS
Betcha never thought
You'd make it
Betcha never thought
You'd see the light of day
Betcha never thought
You'd have it in your pocket

Just catch you when you're falling

CHORUS

Just catch you when you're falling, falling

CHORUS

Betcha never thought you'd make it
You'd make it

It was the perfect opportunity
Just looking at your quick mistakes
So yo u finally went and did it

Betcha never thought
Betcha never thought
You'd make itback to top
Top Of The World (The Glass Bead Game)
(Jon Anderson/David Paich)

Ah, see we both sing
Get along
Some of us set this treaty
Because I know
Set it to really purify

See the more the reasoning
As the sars they sit at night
We can never really guess
Unless we ask like a mission

And it touches you
Like a measure do
It's a real life
And it gets us by

Some Gemini dold us of a reason
We had something of a catapult force
I'm steering out another vision

Top, very top
Top, very top
Top of the world, we'll see what it's like
Clearer

Just around the corner we heard it
Just around the boat should be there
It came alive so by the fire
For the very first time so heavy

First energy, reach first vision
First energy, caught in the light
First energy, bringing the night

I'm a river, I love you
Night
I'm a river, I love you

Watching
LIke a tiger mystic
Like a unicorn
Water
See the great whale
Skyward
Are you listening
Do shine

It's a gift you're reaching
Day to day you touch me
LIke a vision, we fly to the sky
For the very first time

First energy, reach first vision
First energy, caught in the light
First energy, reach first vision
First energy, bringing the night

I'm a river, I love you
Night
I'm a river, I love you
Night

I'm a river, I love you
I'm a river, I love you

Some Gemini told us of a reason
We had something of a catapult force
I'm steering out another vision

Top, very top
Top, very top
Top of the world, we'll see what it's like
Clearer

I'm a rhythm, I love you
I'm a rhythm, I love you
I'm a river, I love you
I'm a river, I love you
I'm a river, I love youback to top
Hurry Home (Song From The Pleiades)
(Jon Anderson)

The breakthrough was needed
By the sign of the day
Singing out our revolution
CHildren show the way

They made out a charter
Sealed wit ha song
It took me across the river
To where I belong

Hurry home to your heart
Hurry home to the voice
There are times for inner changes
Be ready for the choice

Hurry home, said my love
Hurry home to the stars
Start a new generation
With a freedom that's ours

My friends said bear me witness
I'm coming alive
For the first time in our history
No mountains to climb

Be the living soul of this time
Be ye wise as the moon
Be the first new generation
Coming home, coming soon

They call it the cleansing
Of the loneliest soul
It's an honor just to be alive
>From this love we'll never fall

Hurry home to your heart
Hurry home to the ovice
There's a new point to living
And a freedom of cohoice

There's a call throughout the kingdom
There's a call throughout the land
Be as clear as the stars above
Holding love in your hand

Hurry home to your heart
Hurry home toto the voice
There are times for inner changes
Be ready for the choice

Hurry home, said my love
Hurry home to the stars
STart a new generation
With a freedom that's ours

You're gonna change your history
You're gonna change your style
I've been watching for many years
We're growing so wild

Be the children of the future
Be the children of the age
I'll be standing there being counted
Wit hthe strength that it takes

Hurry home to your heart
Hurry home to the voice
There's a new point to living
And a freedom of choice

There's a call throughout the kingdom
There's a call throughout the land
Be as clear as the stars above
Holding love in your hand

Hurry home to your heart
Hurry home to the voice

Hurry home to your love
