Blue World
(Justin Hayward)

Heart and soul took control
Took control of me
Paid my dues spread the news
Hands across the sea
Put me down turned me round
Turned me round to see
Marble halls open doors
Someone found the key
And it's only what you do
That keeps a-coming back on you
And it's only what you say
That can give yourself away

Underground sight and sound
Human symphony
Heard the voice had no choice
Needed to be free
Fly me high touch the sky
Left the earth below
Heard the line saw the sign
Knew which way to go
Cos it's easier to try
Than to prove it can't be done
And it's easier to stay
Than to turn around and run

It's a blue world
It takes somebody to help somebody
Oh it's a blue world
It's a new world
It needs somebody to love somebody
Oh it's a blue world

Heart and soul took control
Took control of me
Paid my dues spread the news
Hands across the sea
Put me down turned me round
Turned me round to see
Marble halls open doors
Someone found the key
Cos it's easier to try
Than to prove it can't be done
And it's easier to stay
Than to turn around and run

It's a blue world
It takes somebody to help somebody
Oh it's a blue world
It's a new world
It needs somebody to love somebody
Oh it's a blue world
It's a blue world
It takes somebody to help somebody
Oh it's a blue world
It's a new world
It needs somebody to love somebody
Oh it's a blue world

It's a blue world
It needs somebody to love somebody
Oh it's a blue worldback to top
Meet Me Halfway
(Justin Hayward and John Lodge)

Never dreamt I would hope
While I count the miles
Through the wind and the rain
I can see you smile
There ain't no turning back
I can see it in the distance
Got it in my sight

Like a vision like a face
Coming out of the sky
You were there not a dream
You were there in my eyes
There ain't no turning back
I can see it in the distance
Touch it through the night
Driving into the light
When I'm on my own
When I'm all alone

Won't you meet me halfway
Won't you meet me halfway
Is it a dream?
Is it a dream coming true?
Meet me halfway

Like a vision like a face
Coming out of the sky
You were there not a dream
You were there in my eyes
There are no words to say
I can see you in the distance
Hear you through the night
Ain't no easy way
When you're on your own
When you're all alone

Won't you meet me halfway
Won't you meet me halfway
Is it a dream?
Is it a dream coming true?
Meet me halfway


Won't you meet me halfway
Won't you meet me halfway
Won't you meet me halfway
Won't you meet me halfway
Won't you meet me halfwayback to top
Sitting At The Wheel
(John Lodge)

I can hear the music playing
I can hear the word that you're saying
I can see the lovelife in your eyes
What's the use in looking for an answer
I might find out
It could be a disaster
Hold on to your own time
Don't let go
Don't let go

I'm sitting at the wheel
Watching the river roll, roll on by, by, by
Sitting at the wheel
Don't let the river run dry

I can see your face on a piece of tomorrow
I'll hang my dream on a road I can follow
I gotta touch the warmth of your love
(need the warmth of your love, not gonna)
Not gonna take a chance a
Change of direction
Gonna keep on rolling till I find the connection
Hold on to your lifeline
Don't let go
Don't let go

I'm sitting at the wheel
Watching the river roll, roll on by, by, by
Sitting at the wheel
Don't let the river run dry
I'm sitting at
I'm sitting at the wheel

Like a voyeur standing at the edge of time
Looking for a reason
That's got no rhyme
Love took a corner
Shot off for a mile
I'm sitting at the wheel
Rock on, . . . Rocker

I can feel the music playing (Hold on)
I can hear the word that you're saying (Hold on)
I can see the lovelife in your eyes
Ain't no use in looking for an answer (Hold on)
I might find out
That it could be a disaster (Hold on)
Hold on to your own time
Don't let go
Don't let go

I'm sitting at the wheel
Watching the river roll, roll on by, by, by
Sitting at the wheel
Don't let the river run dry
I'm sitting at
I'm sitting at the wheel

I'm sitting at the wheel
Watching the river roll, roll on by, by, by
Sitting at the wheel
Don't let the river run dry (Oh)

I'm sitting at the wheel
Watching the river roll, rock and roll on by
Sitting at the wheel (sitting, sitting, sitting)
I'm just sitting
I'm sitting at the wheel
I'm sitting at the wheel
Watching the river roll by
Rock and roll by
Sitting at the wheel

I'm just sitting
Sitting at the wheel

If you're sitting at the wheel
Watch this rocker roll byback to top
Going Nowhere
(Graeme Edge)

Once more I've loved I've laughed and I've lost
Now I'm alone left counting the cost
Once more sweet child of middling years
Basted again in bitter-sweet tears
I will survive solitude
But come alive
I'll love anew
(Note that the CD booklet gives this line as "Although the new")

Somebody tell me you love me
Somebody tell me you care
I've got a heart full of giving
Going nowhere (going nowhere)

Daylight will come and steal the night sights
Starlight on black replaced with gray light
Now I must go out and set my best pace
Running all day in the human race
But now I know the good news
Before you win you have to lose

Somebody tell me you love me (somebody tell me)
Somebody tell me you care (tell me you care)
I've got a heart full of giving
Going nowhere (going nowhere)

How much longer must I travel on
Looking for someone to help me (help me) sing my song
How much longer will it be
I need to find someone
For the love (find someone for the life, of me)
From me

Somebody tell me you love me (somebody tell me)
Somebody tell me you care (tell me you care)
I've got a heart full of giving
Going nowhere (going nowhere)back to top

Under My Feet
(John Lodge)

It's a hard life
Never let yourself get down
You may never get back
You may never ever turn it round
You may say it took you by surprise
Never ending
Never changing
I didn't see through your disguise
(It took my breath away)

Under my feet (under my feet)
The earth shook
Under my feet (under my feet)
The earth just fell away
Under my feet (under my feet) gave way

Did you never ever want to take a chance
Never thought the time would come round
Quite so fast
Would you walk right through that wall
And keep on walking till you
Couldn't stand on your feet no more
But you came and took me by surprise
When you stole up on me
I didn't see through your disguise
It took my breath away

Under my feet (under my feet)
The earth shook
Under my feet (under my feet)
The earth just fell away
Under my feet (under my feet) gave way

Where were you
When I needed you (when I needed you)
Where were you
When I needed you (when I wanted you)
Where were you
Where were you - I'm holding on

Under my feet (under my feet)
The earth shook
Under my feet (under my feet)
The earth just fell away
Right under my feet (under my feet) gave way

Under my feet
Under my feet
The earth shook
Right under my feet - the earth gave wayback to top
It's Cold Outside Of Your Heart
(Justin Hayward)

The harder I try
Seems the further I fall
The deeper my love seems to be
And I know that I
Never doubted at all
That someone was waiting for me
Then out of the blue
It was over
And how did you think I would survive

Cos it's cold outside
Yes it's cold outside of your heart
Yes it's cold outside
Yes it's cold outside of your heart
I never thought it could happen to me
Like the one that gets you
That you just don't see
And now I don't want to be free
I thought it was always to be
That someone was waiting for me

The longer the shadows
Become in my life
The colder the breeze seems to be
The days roll on by
Still I can't quite believe
That someone's not waiting for me

The flame of desire
Is still burning
The warmth of your body close to mine

Cos it's cold outside
Yes it's cold outside of your heart
Yes it's cold outside
Yes it's cold outside of your heart
It's a big world to face all alone
And I'm begging you now just to come on home
Cos I, I don't want to be free
I thought it was always to be
That someone was waiting for me
You know that it's you that I need
You see I refuse to believe
That someone's not waiting for meback to top
Running Water
(Justin Hayward)

Time hurries on
Look and it's gone
The changing of the autumn tide
The hopes that live
The dreams that die
If I could have you by my side
I'd give it all away

You, you and I
We must hold on
We must try
To reach beyond that far off cloud
Along the road we're traveling now
If I could only show you how
I need you there with me

Oh running water
Don't care what people say
We live to love another day
Oh running water
Don't throw your love away
We live to love another day

Time hurries on
Turn around and it's gone
If only we could hold that dream
If only life was what it seemed
I know my darling what you mean
I've seen it slip away

Oh running water
Don't care what people say
We live to love another day
Oh running water
Don't throw your love away
We live to love another dayback to top
I Am
(Ray Thomas)

Salt water never grew roses
Seems roses can't grow in the sea
A river can fashion a valley
From a thousand sweet drinking streams

I am (built in the image of the Father)
I am (from the outside looking in)
I am the son (but inside is a different place)
Yes I am (beautify earth -- and scream, I AM)
I am the son
Yes I am the son of love
I am

Born in time when eyes could see
What's written in the stars
Freedom was ever
And ever was never far
I am (I am)back to top
Sorry
(Ray Thomas)

Just look at me now
Because I'm tired of yelling
Look at me now
It's only me I'm selling
I'm not willing to trade
My life to make the sale
You turn me around
You put me down
Look at me now

I'm hanging out my heart to dry
For the last time
I'll tell you the reason why
It's for the last time

Laid-back uptown turnaround people - lie
Laid-back uptown turnaround people - wear disguises
Sorry, a word they only use too late
Sorry is a word that only ever means forgive my yesterdays (Sorry)
Laid-back uptown turnaround people - lie (uptown people lie)
Laid-back uptown turnaround people - wear disguises
And sorry that's a word they only use too late
Sorry is a word that only ever means forgive my yesterdays (Sorry)

Here I am loving you
You're laying there so quietly
I can feel your breath upon my skin
Afterglow came suddenly
With you it always did

I'm hanging out my heart to dry (Look at me now)
For the last time
I'll tell you the reason why (Look at me now)
It's for the last time
Laid-back uptown turnaround people - lie (Look at me now)
Laid-back uptown turnaround people - wear disguises
(Look at me now)

They say sorry that's a word
They only use too late
Sorry is a word that only ever means
Forgive my yesterdays (Sorry)

(Uptown people lie)
Laid-back uptown turnaround people - wear disguises
They say sorry (laid-back turnaround people)
That's a word they only use too late (uptown people lie)
Sorry is a word that only means forgive
(laid-back turnaround people)
