Fly Me High
(Justin Hayward)

I'm up to the eyes and I love ev'ryone
Today I could cry I could reach for the sun
I'm walking on air 'n' I'm here 'n' I'm there
I travel the sky but for what I don't care

Fly me straight and fly me high
Fly me straight and fly me high

I'm up 'n' I'm down 'n' I'm gone, I'm around
I'm driving along with no wheels on the ground
Hang on to me tight 'cause it doesn't last long
A few hours more and it'll be gone

Fly me straight and fly me high
Fly me straight and fly me high

I leave you behind on the streets in the gloom
I'm up here alone and there's plenty of room
You won't see me, I'll see you, I'm too fast
Whoops! Here I come, Now I'm gone. Now I'm past

Fly me straight and fly me high
Fly me straight and fly me high

I'm up to the eyes and I love ev'ryone
Today I could cry I could reach for the sun
I'm walking on air 'n' I'm here 'n' I'm there
I travel the sky but for what I don't care

Fly me straight and fly me high
Fly me straight and fly me highback to top
I Really Haven't Got The Time
(Mike Pinder)

You want me to ride
In your car outside
Spend some time with you
Just an hour or two

But I really,
I really haven't
I really haven't got the time
I really
I really haven't
I really haven't got the time
I really haven't got the time

I'm a busy man
Workin' when I can
I got no time to lend
I got no time, time to spend

Oh no, I really
I really haven't
I really haven't got the time
Oh no, I really
I really haven't
I really haven't got the time
I really haven't got the time

(Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!)

Instrumental

I really
I really haven't
I really haven't got the time
Oh no, I really
I really haven't
I really haven't got the time
I really haven't got the time

Workin' nine 'til five
Got to stay alive (I've got to stay alive)
Find somebody who (Go find somebody who)
Got some time for you (Who's got the time for you)

But I really
No, no, no, no
I really haven't
I really haven't got the time
Oh no, I really
No, no, no, no
I really haven't
I really haven't got the time
I really haven't got the time

Really haven't got the time

Leave This Man Alone
(Justin Hayward)

Ah, leave this man alone, Ah, leave this man alone

Young girls with long faces come to me at night and stay the night
Why am I so lonely?
Tell me is it right? (Is it right?)
Leave them, leave them, leave them, leave those things alone
Leave them, leave them, leave them, leave those things alone

Someone said I loved you, but I can't think where (I can't think where)
You know so much about me
So don't stand and stare, stand and stare
Leave me, leave me, leave me, leave my mind alone
Leave me, leave me, leave me, leave this man alone

Ah, ah, leave this man alone
Ah, ah, leave this

(Instrumental)

Ah, ah, leave this man alone
Ah, ah, leave this

Someone said I loved you, but I can't think where (I can't think where)
You know so much about me
So don't stand and stare, stand and stare
Leave me, leave me, leave me, leave my mind alone
Leave me, leave me, leave me, leave this man alone

Ah, ah, leave this man alone
Ah, ah, leave this man alone
Ahhhhback to top
Love And Beauty
(Mike Pinder)

I look around at other people
I brush their shoulders at the corner of the street
But all they notice is their feet
It wasn't meant this way
Their minds have gone astray

If they could lift their eyes they'd see
There's people smiling just like me and I'll agree
It's not their fault because it's raining
It's all work and no play, it's just another day

(Love) Love and beauty (Love)
(Love) Love and beauty (Love)
(Love) Love and beauty (Love)
Should be everybody's duty
To welcome every man as a friend

I wish that I could change the world
For every boy there'd be a girl for him to know
And maybe people would look up
Then they might realize they're not the only ones alive

(Love) Love and beauty (Love)
(Love) Love and beauty (Love)
(Love) Love and beauty (Love)
Should be everybody's duty
To welcome every man as a friend

(Love) Love and beauty (Love)
(Love) Love and beauty (Love)back to top
Cities
(Justin Hayward)

Neon the city's sun
Taxis like beetles run, and I see
Pavements with yellow lines
Grey walls and big bold signs with darkness
Up above, all around
In the sky, on the ground
This is what, I have found
Cities, cities

Here the flowers don't grow
Here the river's just a sewer
People who move below
Buildings with smells and noise and darkness
Up above, all around
In the sky, on the ground
This is what, I have found
Cities, cities

Not for me
No, no I don't believe you
It's not the place to be
No, no I won't believe you

Here the flowers don't grow
Here the river's just a sewer
People who move below
Buildings with smells and noise and darkness
Up above, all around
In the sky, on the ground
This is what I have found
Cities, cities, citiesback to top
A Simple Game
(Mike Pinder)

As time goes by you will see
That we're going to be free
You and me, we'll touch the sky
Can you see in your mind's eye
That we are one
We're all the same
And life is just a simple game

There, by your side, I will be
When this crazy world is free
Free from doubt
When it finds out
Exactly what we're meant to be
That we are one
We're all the same
And life is just a simple game

Thoughts of another day
Flashing through my head
Thinking how life could be
All of the things that our great men have said
Be what we want to be
What we deserve to be
What we are meant to be

As time goes by, you will see
That we're going to be free
You and me, we'll touch the sky
Can you see in your mind's eye
That we are one
We're all the same
And life is just a simple game

We're gonna be free
Oohhh, gonna be free
Gonna be free
(Free, gonna be free, gonna be free, Oohhh)back to top
Gimme' A Little Somethin'
(John Lodge)

My life is not as easy as you say
My life is not anything but as the day
My life is surrounded by the things of the day that have gone
My world is built on everything that I want can be won (one?)

Gimme' a little somethin' to help me on my way
Gimme' a little somethin' to help me on my way

(Love) (Love)

My heart is not as cold as you can say
My heart is not anything but as the day
My heart is warmed by the way that you love and are gone
My life is founded on the thoughts that we two are just one

Gimme' a little somethin' to help me on my way
Gimme' a little somethin' to help me on my way

(Love) (Love)

Gimme' a little somethin' to help me on my way
Gimme' a little somethin' to help me on my way
Gimme' a little somethin' to help me on my wayback to top
Please Think About It
(Mike Pinder)

There in your eyes, I see
That you want to be free
There by your side, I'll be
If you still want me

Please think about it (Think about it)
I need your love
I'm no good without it (Think about it)
Please think about it (Think about it)
Give me your love
I can't live without it

Oh no
Never leave my side
Baby please decide
I'm in love with you
I hope you want me too

Don't go
Say there's nothing wrong
Stay where you belong
I'll be good to you
That's all I wanna do

Instrumental

Please think about it (Think about it)
I need your love
I'm no good without it (Think about it)

I can't live without it

Oh no

Baby please decide
I'm in love with you
I hope you want me, too

Don't go

But, if you decide to stay
I will be your guide

I'm no good without it (Think about it)
Please think about it (Think about it)
Give me your love

Long Summer Days
(Justin Hayward)

Long summer days, I keep thinking
What to do with my time
So many ways, I keep sinking
What's to do with my time

Take me back, I don't mind
(Take me back) I've got time
(Take me back) and let me start again

Time hurries by, I keep thinking
What's to do in our time
Don't let it by, just keep thinking
What's to do in our time

Take me back, I don't mind
(Take me back) I've got time
(Take me back) and let me start again

Utopia's within our sight (Utopia)
Don't kick it or we lose it
Though you think the world's too fast
It's that way 'cause we choose it
Automation is the cry (Automation)
Our minds have been forgotten
To understand me, you must try
My thoughts are turning rotten

Oh, please, please
Don't mess it up now for me
Please, please
Don't sit there and condemn me
Please, please, please

Long summer days, I keep thinking
What's to do with my time
So many ways, I keep sinking
What's to do with my time

Take me back, I don't mind
(Take me back) I've got time
(Take me back) and let me start again

Ah, ah, ah, ah long summer daysback to top
King And Queen
(Justin Hayward)

It's like awaking from a dream
All I remember is a lullaby
I couldn't tell you where I've been
A thousand images just flutter by

Takin' my time
In a white limousine
If I was the King
She'd be my Queen

And my thoughts are growing louder
And my mind has lost its way
And the flames are getting higher ev'ryday

My mind is back behind my eyes
And there before me sits a butterfly
And as I watch, she gently cries (And as I watch, she gently cries)
Can there be anyone who'll pity her? (Who'll pity her?)

How many faces
Have all of you been?
If I was the King
She'd be my Queen

And my thoughts are getting louder
And my mind has lost its way
And the flames are getting higher ev'ryday

My mind is back behind my eyes
And there before me sits a butterfly
And as I watch, she gently cries (And as I watch, she gently cries)
Can there be anyone who'll pity her? (Who'll pity her?)

How many faces
Have all of you been?
If I was the King
She'd be my Queen

And my thoughts are getting louder
And my mind has lost its way
And the flames are getting higher ev'ry day

And the flames are getting higher ev'ry day

And the flames are getting higher ev'ry dayback to top
What Am I Doing Here?
(Justin Hayward)

Pale the young squire who goes to fight
To die at his master's side
Living is just a dream inside
You ask me why he cried
"What am I doin' here?"
"What am I doin' here?"

Beautiful princess, fair and pale
Stares out across the sea
Alone in her castle dark and grey
Her love she'll never see
"What am I doin' here?"
"What am I doin' here?"

Tenderly bury the fair young dead
Place a wooden cross at his head
All the words you can say
Have been said
It's for you my tears are shed

What can be done, you won't believe
Listen and you may see
Everyone's dream is deep within
Find it and you'll be free
"What am I doin' here?"
"What am I doin' here?"

Tenderly bury the fair young dead
Place a wooden cross at his head
All the words you can say
Have been said
It's for you my tears are shed

Tenderly bury the fair young dead
Place a wooden cross at his head
All the words you can say
Have been said
It's for you my tears are shedback to top
Late Lament
(Graeme Edge)

Breathe deep the gathering gloom
Watch lights fade from every room
Bedsitter people look back and lament
Another day's useless energy spent.
Impassioned lovers wrestle as one,
Lonely man cries for love and has none.
New mother picks up and suckles her son,
Senior citizens wish they were young.
Cold hearted orb that rules the night,
Removes the colors from our sight.
Red is grey and yellow white,
But we decide which is right.
And which is an illusion???
