The Wizard
Hensley/Clarke

He was the wizard of a thousand kings
And I chanced to meet him one night wandering
He told me tales and he drank my wine
Me and my magic man kinda feeling fine

He had a cloak of gold
And eyes of fire
And as he spoke I felt a deep desire
To free the world of its fear and pain
And help the people to feel free again

Why don't we listen to the voices in our hearts
'Cause then I know we'd find we're not so far apart
Everybody's got to be happy
Everyone should sing
For we know the joy of life
The peace that love can bring

So spoke the wizard in his mountain home
The vision of his wisdom means we'll never be alone
And I will dream of my magic night
And the million silver stars that guide me with their lightback to top
Traveller In Time
Byron/Kerslake

Ev'ry day I have to look to the sun
To see where it was that I have come from
I have a feelin' that there must be a time
When I'll get a chance to go home
'Cause I'm so tired of bein' here alone
But I am just a traveller in time
Tryin' so hard to pay for my crime

If I could go back the same way I got here
And see the people that I once held so near
I'd do my best to find an answer for you
But first I must wait till I'm set free
And I don't know how long that's gonna be
'Cause I'm man with a whole lot on his mind
Just out there somewhere travellin' in time
Travellin' in time

I've tried for so long to find
Some way of helpin' mankindback to top
Easy Living
Hensley

This is a thing I've never known before
It's called easy livin'
This is a place I've never seen before
And I've been forgiven

Easy livin'
And I've been forgiven
Since you've taken your place
In my heart

Somewhere along the lonely road
I had tried to find ya
Day after day on that windly road
I had walked behind ya

Easy livin'
And I've been forgiven
Since you've taken your place
In my heart

Waitin', watchin', wishin' my whole life away
Dreamin', thinkin', ready for my happy day
And some easy livin'

Somewhere along the lonely road
I had tried to find you
Day after day on that windy road
I had walked behind you

Easy livin'
And I've been forgiven
Since you've taken your place
In my heartback to top
Poet's Justice
Hensley/Kerslake

Cold winds and cloudy skies
Turned to sweetness in her eyes
Fantasies I realised
Came to life to my surprise

Rain came and took her away
Just when I thought she was here to stay
Sun gone I was left high and dry
Love came by and touched me
And kissed me so long

Shine hard October moon
Eagle take me to her soon
Run swiftly silver stream
Find my love or let me dream

Half of me is all of her
I'd be much happier if I were whole
All my words and wisdom fall
The poets justice leads me to my goal
Leads me to my goal

Cold winds and cloudy skies
Turned to sweetness in her eyes
Fantasies I realised
Came to life to my surpriseback to top
Circle Of Hands
Hensley

Circle of hands
Cold spirits plan
Searching my land for an enemy
Came across Love's sweet cost
And in the face of beauty
Evil was lost

Sky full of eyes, minds full of lies
Black from their cold hearts, down to the graves
Murdered the dawn, spreading their scorn
Cursing the sun of which love was born

We must keep them away
Or pretty soon we'll pay
And count the cost in sorrow
Sacrifice, the future has its price
And today is only yesterday's tomorrowback to top
Rainbow Demon
Hensley

There rides the Rainbow Demon
On his horse of crimson fire
Black shadows are following closely
On the heels of his desire

Riding on in the mist of morning
No one dared to stand in his way
Possessed by some distant calling
Riding on through night and day

Rainbow Demon - pick up your heart and run
Rainbow Demon - lives for his sword and his gun

Riding on in the mist of morning
No one dared to stand in his way
Possessed by some distant calling
Riding on through night and day

Rainbow Demon - pick up your heart and run
Rainbow Demon - lives for his sword and his gunback to top
All My Life
Box/Byron/Kerslake

I had a little look for a minute today
And I told her there was something
That I wanted to say

Just sitting there glowing with her red light on
So I've gotta move fast
And it shouldn't take long

Maybe she will, maybe she won't
We can get it so together
If she doesn't say don't

I've never ever thought I was looking for a wife
But I think I could love her
For the rest of my life

I only took one 'cause I couldn't take two
I wanna make love
And it's gotta be you

Every little thing that I ever tried to say
Is comin' out right
In my own kinda way

Take it, make it, it really feels fine
She must be Lady Luck
If she's gonna be mine

I've never ever thought I was looking for a wife
But I think I could love her
For the rest of my life

I will love you all my lifeback to top
Paradise
Hensley

I feel you trying
Though in my heart I know you're lying
And though your love for me is dying
I see you crying

It's the pain of your secret heart
Bringing you to tears
Filling you with fears
For your mind and for your soul

I touch you softly now
Born on by hope until the end somehow
I am a man and I must keep my vow
I must go on

But the wall of your secret heart
Keeps my distance clear
Helps my footsteps fall
Back in line inside my mind

What's the use you turned me loose
And left me here to cry
Where's the love we talked about
Where's my sunny sky

Secret hearts and sorry tales
Will never help love grow
Spread your wings my daunted soul
The time has come to go

I will not be hurried down
Or blackened by your lies
I must go and find my dream
And live in paradise

What's the use you turned me loose
And left me here to cry
Where's the love we talked about
Where's my sunny sky

Secret hearts and sorry tales
Will never help love grow
Spread your wings my daunted soul
The time has come to go

I will not be hurried down
Or blackened by your lies
I must go and find my dream
And live in paradise

What's the use you turned me loose
And left me here to cry
Where's the love we talked about
Where's my sunny skyback to top
The Spell
Hensley

What do you think I am
Do you think I'm dreamin'
Don't you know I know
What it is you're schemin'

Who d'you think gave you the right
Hidden by the dead of night
To take the world and turn it upside down
When it should be 'round

Seems I made it just in time
To use my reason and my rhyme
To save us from the evils of your mind

I will cast the spell
Be sure I'll cast it well
I will light a fire
Kindled with desire

I'll fill you with fear
So you know I'm here
And I won't be treated like a fool

So no good you pretending
There'll be no happy ending
I'm alive and darkness is my tool


But when the night is over
And daytime steals your cover
The goodness of the morning sun
Will warm away what you have done
And leave you cold

I have no need for moonlight
You're wrong to trust in sunlight
For I exist not just in storms
But in life itself in so many forms
To leave you cold

I will leave you now
But you won't defeat me
You had best beware
When you come to meet me

Love and truth will follow me
And army of reality
Brought from every corner of the world

You will never break the spell
I'll summon all the fires of hell
And this is my advice for what it's worth

Let us not begin this fight we cannot win
Be sure you're watching me
'Cause all through your life
Every day and every night
You should know that I'll be watching youback to top
