all Moody Blues lyrics



Higher And Higher
Blasting, Billowing, Bursting Forth with the
Power of ten billion butterfly sneezes,
Man with his flaming pyre has conquered the wayward breezes,
Climbing to tranquillity far above the cloud,
Conceiving the heavens clear of misty shroud.

Higher and Higher now we've learned to play with fire
We go higher and higher and higher.

Vast vision must improve our sight
and perhaps at last we'll see,
An end to our homes endless blight
and the beginning of the Free,
Climb to tranquillity finding its real worth
Conceiving the heavens flourishing on Earth.

Higher and Higher now we've learned to play with fire,
We go higher and higher and higher.back to top
Eyes Of A Child
Listen hear the sound
The child awakes
Wonder all around
The child awakes
Now in his life
He never must be lost
No thoughts must deceive him
in life he must trust

With the eyes of a child
You must come out and see
That your world's spinning round
And through life you will be
A small part of a hope of a love that exists
In the eyes of a child you will see

Earth falls far away
New life awaits
Time it has no day
New life awaits
Here is your dream
And now how does it feel
No words will go with you
And now what is real?

With the eyes of a child
You must come out and see
That your world's spinning round
And through life you will be
A small part of a hope of a love that exists
In the eyes of a child you will seeback to top
Floating
Floating free as a bird
Sixty foot leaps it's so absurd
>From up here you should see the view
Such a lot of space for me and you

Oh you'll like it,
Gliding around, get your feet of the ground
Oh you'll like it,
Do as you please with so much ease.

Now I know how it feels
To have wings on my heels
To take a stroll among the stars
Get a close look at planet Mars.

Oh you'd like it,
Gliding around, get your feet off the ground
Oh you'd like it,
Do as you please with so much ease.

Bouncing about on the Moon
Guess you'll all be up here soon
The candy stores will be brand new
And you'll buy rock with the Moon right through

Oh you'd like it
Gliding around, get your feet off the ground
Oh you'd like it
Do as you please with so much ease.back to top
Eyes Of A Child Part 2
I'm gonna' sit and watch the web
That you will build this day
Will be a thread of love you weave
It's yours to show the way
Then everything will be as you will see
In the light

With the eyes of a child
You must come out and see
That your world's spinning round
And through life you will be
A small part of a hope of a love that exists
In the eyes of a child you will see

With the eyes of a child
You must come out and see
That your world's spinning round
And through life you will be
A small part of a hope of a love that exists ...back to top
I Never Thought I'd Live To Be A Hundred
I never thought I'd live to be a hundred
I never thought I'd get to the things
That all those other sons do, and they do.

I never thought I'd ever have my freedom
An age ago my maker was refusing me
The pleasure of the viewback to top
Out And In
Gazing past the planets, looking for total view
I've been lying here for hours,
You've got to make the journey out and in

Wonders of a lifetime, right there before your eyes
Searching with this life of ours
You've got to make the journey out and in
Out and in, out and in.

If you think it's a joke, that's all right
Do what you want to do.
I've said my piece and I'll leave it all up to you

Wonders of a lifetime, right there before your eyes
Searching with this life of ours
You've got to make the journey out and in
Out and in, out and in.

If you think it's a joke, that's all right
Do what you want to do.
I've said my piece and I'll leave it all up to you

Gazing past the planets, looking for total view
I've been lying here for hours,
You've got to make the journey out and in
Out and in, out and in
Out and in, out and in
Out and inback to top
Gypsy
A gypsy of a strange and distant time
Travelling in panic all direction blind
Aching for the warmth of a burning sun
Freezing in the emptiness of where he'd come from
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Left without a hope of coming home.

Speeding through a shadow of a million years
Darkness is the only sound to reach his ears
Frightening him with the visions of eternity
Screaming for the future that can never be
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Left without a hope of coming home.
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

A gypsy of a strange and distant time
Travelling in panic all direction blind
Aching for the warmth of a burning sun
Freezing in the emptiness of where he'd come from
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Left without a hope of coming home.

Left without a hope of coming home
Left without a hope of coming homeback to top
Eternity Road
Hark listen here he comes
Hark listen here he comes
Turning, spinning, catherine wheeling
Forever changing, there's no beginning
Speeding through a charcoal sky
Observe the truth we cannot lie

Travelling eternity road
What will you find there
Carrying your heavy load
Searching to find a peace of mind

You'll see us all around
You'll see us all around
Turning, spinning, catherine wheeling
Forever changing, there's no beginning
You're so very far from home and so very much alone.

Travelling eternity road
What will you find there
Carrying your heavy load
Searching to find a peace of mind.

Travelling eternity road
What will you find there
Carrying your heavy load
Searching to find a peace of mind.back to top
Candle Of Life
Something you can't hide
Says you're lonely
Hidden deep inside
Of you only
It's there for you to see
Take a look and be
Burn slowly the candle of life

Something there outside
Says we're only
In the hands of time
Falling slowly
It's there for us to know
With love that we can go
Burn slowly the candle of life

So love everybody
And make them your friends
So love everybody
And make them your friends.

Something you can't hide
Says you're lonely
Hidden deep inside
Of you only
It's there for you to see
Take a look and be
Burn slowly the candle of life

Something there outside
Says we're only
In the hands of time
Falling slowly
It's there for us to know
With love that we can go
Burn slowly the candle of lifeback to top
Sun Is Still Shining
Sun is still shining, look at the view
Moon is still dining with me and you
Now that we're out here, open your heart
To the universe of which we're a part

Everything's turning, turning around
See with your mind, leave your body behind
Now that we're out here open your heart
To the Universe of which we're a part

But if you want to play
stay right back on Earth
Waiting for rebirth.

Sun is still shining, look at the view
Moon is still dining with me and you
Now that we're out here, open your heart
To the universe of which we're a part

But if you want to play
stay right back on Earth
Waiting for rebirth.back to top
I Never Thought I'd Live To Be A Million
I never thought I'd get to be a million
I never thought I'd get to be the thing that
All his other children see. Look at me.back to top
Watching And Waiting
Watching and waiting, for a friend to play with
Why have I been alone so long.

Mole he is burrowing, his way to the sunlight,
He knows there's someone there so strong.

'Cos here there's lots of room for doing
The things you've always been denied
So look and gather all you want to
There's no one here to stop you trying.

Soon you will see me, 'cos, I'll be all around you
But where I come from I can't tell
But don't be alarmed by my fields and my forests
They're here for only you to share.

'Cos here there's lots of room for doing
The things you've always been denied
So look, and gather all you want to
There's no one here to stop you trying.

Watching and waiting, for someone to understand me
I hope it won't be very long
