Lost In A Lost World
(Mike Pinder)

I woke up today, I was crying,
Lost in a lost world,
Cos' 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,
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 caan you see their world is crashing
Crashing down around their feet
And angry people in the street,
Are telling them they've had their fill
Of politics that wound and kill
Grow, 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'll see them searching
Everywhere you turn you'll feel the pain
Everyone is looking for the answer
We'll look again, come on my friend
Love will find them in the end
Come on my friend we've got to bend
On our knees and say a prayer.

Oh can you feel 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 you forgotten we're all children
Children from a family tree
That's longer than a centipede
And started long ago when you
And I were only love-

I woke up today, I was crying,
Lost in a lost world,
Cos' so many people are dying,
Lost in a lost world.back to top
New Horizons
(Justin Hayward)

I've had dreams enough for one
And I've got love enough for three
I have my hopes to comfort me
I've got my new horizons out to sea

CHORUS
But I'm never gonna lose your precious gift
It will always be that way
And I know I'm gonna 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
Cos' I've shed tears too many for me.

CHORUS

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.

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

CHORUS
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.

CHORUS

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

CHORUS

Set sail towards the sun
Feel the warmth that's just begun
Share each and every dream
They belong to everyone

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

CHORUS
You know it makes me want to cry, cry, cry-
Wished I could be in your heart
To be one with your love
Wished I could be in your eyes
Looking back there you were, and here we are.

Isn't life strange
A word we arrange
With no thought or care
Maker of despair
Each breath that we breathe
With love me must weave
To make us as one

CHORUS

Isn't life strange
A turn of a page
A book without light
Unless with love we write;
To throw it away
To lose just a day
The quicksand of time

You And Me
(Graeme Edge/Justin Hayward)

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 of comfort,
Or the pain of a burning wound.

CHORUS
All we are trying to say is
We are all we've got
You and me just cannot fail
If we never never stop.
Ah! Never stop.

You're an ocean full of faces,
Aand 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 vision of our father,
Touched by his loving son.

The Land Of Make-Believe
(Justin Hayward)

We're living in the 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 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 up the shutters on your windows
Unlock all the locks upon your doors
Brush away the cobwebs from your day-dreams
No secrets come between us any more
Oh say it's true
Only love will 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, why.

Open up the shutters on your windows
Unlock all the locks upon your doors
Brush away the cobwebs from your day-dreams
No secrets come between us any more
Oh say it's true
Only love will see you through
You know what love can do to you.back to top
When You're A Free Man
(Mike Pinder)

Time quickly passes by,
If only we could tak again
someday I hope 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 alright,
How are the children
And Rosemary
I long to see you
And be in your company
Someday I hope 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 aall free men again.

You gave love freely
To those with tears
You're eyes were sad when
You saw the need
You know that love lasts,
For eternity,
Let's be God's children,
And live in perfect peace.

Someway I know I'll see you shining
When you're a free man,
When we're all free men again,
Yeah....back to top
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 travelling 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.

Music is the traveller crossing our world
Meeting so many people bridging the seas
We're just the singers in a rock and roll band.
