Say It With Love
(Justin Hayward)

I've been thinking
The way people do
'Bout the things that matter
To me and you
I've decided to do what I can
and to find the kind of man
I really am
I can see
The world from here
And it sometimes makes me
Want to disappear
Back to nature
And where we belong
And with just one truth I've found
You can't go wrong

CHORUS
Wherever you go
Whatever you do
Whatever you say
Say, say, say
Say it with love.

I remember
A time long ago
When I heard those guitars
That I worship so
I was captured
I wanted to stay
And to hear that kind of music
Everyday
Heard the songs
around the world
Saw the smiling faces
On the boys and girls
I was destined
To play come what may
And there's just one thing
I knew I had to say

CHORUS

Underneat
A sea of doubt
There's a million voices shouting
Let me out, let me out
When we go
We never return
'Cos there's just one lesson
That we've got to learn

Bless The Wings (That Bring You Back)
(Justin Hayward)

Like the rose that blooms in the wintertime
As it reaches up through the snow
The more life keeps apart
The more love will grow
Like the seed that grows in the darkness
As it reaches up to the sun
I will always reach out for you
'Cos you are the one

CHORUS
I bless the wings that bring you
Back across the shore
If I could touch you now my darling
And love you just once more
If I could hold you, hold you, hold you,
I know you'd understand,
I know you'd understand.

As I cross the bridge by the waterfall
As I make my way by the stars
There's a shadow walking beside me
Here in my heart
Like the restless wind in the tree tops
Like a whispered voice in my ear
I will always be there for you
I'll always be here.

CHORUS

In a far off wonderland
That flashes past my eyes
The kiss of inspiration that was mine
The dust of many centuries
Has blown across this land
But love will not be scattered like the sand

Like the sunrise over the mountainside
Like the bird that has to be free
There's a part of you that will always be
Part of me
Like the seed that grows in the darkness
As it reaches up to the sun
I will always reach out for you
'Cos you are the one.

Is This Heaven?
(Justin Hayward/John Lodge)

Walking home with you last night
You said the world is beautiful
And how things look that way when you're
Love
I love this world
When I'm in your arms
Is this heaven?

I opened up the letter that the
Postman gave to me this morning
Had to stop myself from shouting out
"I love this world"
When I'm in your arms
Is this heaven?
When I'm in your arms
Is this heaven?

I know that heaven waits
For those whose love is true
I want to be there when
The age love is come again

Tell me all about yourself
And how you came to me like in a dream
And every night I dream of you
I dream of you
When I'm in your arms
Is this heaven?
When I'm in your arms
Is this heaven?

I know that heaven waits
For those whose love is true
Don't ask me where or when
The time for us will come again

I sit and watch the sun go down
And in the darkness there's no sound
While in the sky tonight the stars all cry "I love
You"
Are they crying out over you
'Cos you're in my heart
Is this heaven?
'Cos the story starts and ends with youback to top
Say What You Mean (Parts I & Ii)
(Justin Hayward)

Say what you mean
Mean what you say
Say what you mean
Mean what you say
Think about the words
That you're using
Speak for yourself
Say what's on your mind
Think about the life
That you're choosing
Whenever you need somebody
Whenever you're looking
For somebody who knows
When trouble won't leave you alone.

Say what you mean
Mean what you say
Look into the world of tomorrow
Say what you mean
Want what is true
Check out of that room
Full of sorrow
I'm ready to take you with me
I'm ready to be the one
Who's there by your side
When you've just got
Nowhere to hide.

And oh,
The angels will walk with you
Whenver you need them
Yeah, the glory that comes with love
Yeah, yeah, yeah,
And oh,
The treasure that waits for us
Whenever we need it
Now, I just can't hold it back
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

The work and the pain
The thunder and the rain
The Word of the earth has been spoken
The bird on the wing
Free as the wind
Knowing that the spell
Has been broken
Now you can laugh with meaning
Now you can throw away
The cloak of disguise
As you turn your face
To the sky

The blue of the night
The secrets of the light
The touch of the hand
That can lead you
I know you recognise
Then you realise
That he's seen you
Into the strange unknown of love
Standing before me
How your nakedness shows
Now I just can't leave you alone

And oh,
I'm ready to take you now
Whenever you want to go
Yeah, my heart is there for you
Yeah, yeah, yeah
And oh,
The glory that comes with love
For always and ever, now
Now you can feel me love
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Say what you mean, mean what you say
Tell me about the love that you're feeling
Say what you mean what you say

Say what you mean, mean what you say
Say what you mean, mean what you say

Let's walk into the forest
Only witnessed by the moon
And the breeze that once would chill us
Now excites
Say what you mean, mean what you say
And we'll touch the secret places
As the earth beneath us breathes
And the raw exquisite ecstasy
Rushes in

Say what you mean, mean what you say
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.back to top
Lean On Me (Tonight)
(John Lodge)

Lean on me
I'll be there
Whenever you need someone
To share in every prayer
In every dream
You've left somewhere
'Till tomorrow
Will be just like it was when we were young
'Cos tonight
I'm gonna take you where
I've never taken you before

Lean on me
I'm everywhere
Where ever you look I'll be
Forever yours
The northern lights
The Southern Cross
I'll give to you
'Till tomorrow
Will be just like it was when we were young
'Cos tonight
I'm gonna take you where
I've never taken you before

If you're lonely
You know where you can find me
You know there's no escape when you are on
Your own
And if you're worried
And you can see your world slip through your
Fingers
I'll reach out for you in my heart
There's no more dancing in the dark

You're not alone
Tomorrow
Will be just like it was when we were young
'Cos tonight
I'm gonna take you where
I've never taken you before

Will be just like it was when we were young
Tonight I'm gonna take you where
I've never taken you before
Will be just like it was when we were youngback to top
Hope And Pray
(Justin Hayward)

I see the headlights
Shining on the wall
It seems I've got a visitor
who is kind enough to call

CHORUS
And I hope and pray, everyday
I hope and pray it's you

I thought I heard some footsteps
On the floor
And tell me am I dreaming
Or is someone at the door

CHORUS

Autumn turns to winter
And winter turns to spring
I only know the passing of the days
And if you were to ask me
About the meaning of my life
It kind of lost its meaning
On the day you went away
You know that when it comes
To matters of the heart
I thought I had it covered
But it's tearing me apart

CHORUS

Autumn turns to winter
And winter turns to spring
The summer sun still lingers
In my head
If it wasn't for the letters
That you wrote me from the heart
I'd sometimes wonder baby
If I dreamed it all instead
You see I've got to feel your hand
Upon my face
I need to get the calling
To rejoin the human race

CHORUSback to top
Shadows On The Wall
(John Lodge)

When the fantasy we live in
Lies in pieces on the ground
And there is no false illusion
That can turn your heart around
Nothing can change the way I feel
Nothing can take your love from me
If only I didn't worry
If only I could see
If only I could see

CHORUS
Chasing shadows on the wall
Chasing shadows as they dance on the floor
Chasing dreams that were forever young
Now I'm on my own
Chasing shadows on the wall
Shadows on the wall

On the sea of mediocrity
Drifting from a distant shore
No goodbyes no celebration
No-one there to close the door
Only the silence that I feel
Only the lonely road is real
If only I didn't lose you
If only we could be
If only we could be

CHORUSback to top
Celtic Sonant
(Ray Thomas)

Deep peace of the running wave to you
Deep peace of the flowing air to you
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you
Deep peace of the shining star to you
Deep peace of the son of peace to you

One man stood firm guarding cups overflowing
Brimful of memories and yesterday's dreams
He could never explain his own silent thunder
The ocean just blows rough at this time of year

CHORUS
And the wheel keeps on turning
The wheel keeps on turning
The wheel keeps on turning
Turning around

Words left unsaid may have special meanings
Dust hidden pages fill the books left unread
One bleak page left the poet crying
He failed to remember there's a price on his head

CHORUS

Away we sail with alour flags flying
Too many changes can cause us delay
Each star in the sky is there for a reason
Making it so bright for this time of day

CHORUSback to top
Magic
(John Lodge)

When I look in your eye
I can't see why
There's no reflection of me
When I look in your heart
Let it be the start
Work your magic on me

When I look in your eye
I can't see why
It's all a mystery to me
When I ask you to look inside and tell me why
Nothing can change what will be

CHORUS
Baby work your magic on me
Baby work your magic on me
I'm in a state of permanent confusion
Without your love
Without your love
Baby work your magic on me

When I look in your mind
Is there a reason why
It's all an illusion to me
I was lost in the game
That only two could play
When you work your magic on me

CHORUS

What kind of love is this you're talking about
It's got no reason go no easy way out
What kind of love has got a hold of me
What kind of love
What kind of love
What kind of love
Baby work your magic on me

When I look in your eye
I can see why
There's no reflection of me
I should have known from the start
That you would steal my heart
If you work all your magic on me

CHORUSback to top
Never Blame The Rainbows For The Rain
(Justin Hayward/Ray Thomas)

Sailing along
The river of time
Adrift on dreams
Through midnight chimes
Positively frozen
Crystal waterfalls
The mountain of hope
Is there to be climbed
The sea of serenity
Is rightfully mine
Step on to the water
Knowing what is true

CHORUS
Never blame the rainbows for the rain
And learn to forget the memories
That cause yo pain
The last whispered wish of age
Is to live it all again
So never blame the rainbows for the rain

The beat of my heart
The rhythm of love
The earth that's beneath us
The heavens above
I can hear forever
Calling out to me
The changes we go through
Are making me strong
The shelter of friendship
Is where we belong
Look into the future
Knowing what we see

CHORUS

The whirlpool of doubt
Can spin you around
The wave of emotion
Takes you up
Pulls you down
Leaving far behind us
Sweet young passion's spray

CHORUS
