Return To Fantasy
( Hensley/Byron )

Searching every day
Looking every day
Trying to make a connection
To find the piece of the action
Like the hungry poet
Who doesn't know
He is close to perfection
Choice is the question
Moonlight night after moonlight night
Side by side they will see us ride
But if they cared to look, then they would see
It's our return to fantasy, fantasy, fantasy

Can you understand
That in every man
There's a need to unwind
That's never been defined
Somewhere deep within
There's another being
You are somehow abusing
By the person you're using
Moonlight night after moonlight night
Side by side they will see us ride
But if they cared to look, then they would see
It's our return to fantasy, fantasy, fantasy

Travelling faster than lightning
Close than ever before
We can go on for you, and take you nearer to
The legend of mystery from the beginning of time
Dreaming... TIME... Dreaming...
We can return to the land of the good and the kind
TIME... Dreaming... TIME... Dreaming...
Why don't you come to our party and open your minds

In another place
There's a newer face
Like an unfinished painting
Your creator is waiting
The brush and pen describe
What it is inside
That will set your mind thinking
While the others are sinking
Moonlight night after moonlight night
Side by side, they will see us ride
But id they cared to look, then they would see
It's just our return to fantasy, fantasy, fantasyback to top
Shady Lady
( Hensley/Box/Byron/Kerslake )

Out from St.Louis, I wasn't choosy
I just wanted to get back on the road
I hitched in cars, and worked in bars
Lookin' for a place to lay down my load
I met a lady, a shady lady
And someone told me I was al on my own
She poured a beer and said when I'm finished here
Hang around cause I'm taking you home
Don't worry, I'll treat you alright
Don't worry you can stay all night
I thought it was an easy ride
But I didn't know where I was until I got inside

She said okay sonny, give me your money
And don't start any foolin' around
I said what, I said what
Don't you think you're turning me upside down
She said I don't care, I've been everywhere
But I'll take you in and give you a spin
You'll know some tricks by the time we through

Shady lady, you want it all your own way
Shady lady, you won't let go of your prey
Shady lady, eat me up and spit me out
But let's get started now I know what you're talkin' about

Now in the morning, as day was dawning
Shady asked me if I'd stay there awhile
I said stay, baby no way
But I couldn't keep myself from a smile
I said now bye-bye's, go in and dry your eyes
That ain't fitti' for a lady like you
Why not be smart, and give your life another start
But take care now whatever you do

Shady lady I'm on my way
Shady lady we'll meet again one day
And don't worry cause when we do
I'm gonna make sure that there ain't very much left of youback to top
Devil's Daughter
( Byron/Box/Hensley/Kerslake )

I don't believe in your kind of affection
You're takin' me in the wrong direction
Don't give me none of that holy water
Comin' on like you're the Devil's Daughter

Just take me to your chapel
Show me to your leader
Take me to your chapel
I wanna meet your leader

How do you find the time to exist
I've got to keep my strength of mind to resist
Comin' on like you're the Devil's Daughter

Just take me to your Chapel
Show me to your leader
Take me to your chapel
Show me to your leaderback to top
Beautiful Dream
( Hensley/Byron/Box/Kerslake )

Sail down the stream, such a beautiful dream
Never stopping never touching anything
Till dawn awakes you with a breath of the spring

Far from the crowds, way above the clouds
We can take you to the edge of the day
And show you living in a new kind of way
We take you floating to
A sea of morning dew
Where everyone's the same
And no-one knows your name
And there you'll see that you can
Live your life to the extreme
Such a beautiful dream

We'll take you floating to
A sea of morning dew
Where everyone's the same
And no-one knows your name
And there you'll see that you can
Live your life to the extreme
Such a beautiful dream } 3 x times

Prima Donna
( Byron/Box/Kerslake/Hensley )

I'll go down fighting but I'd rather be delightin'
All the people who come to see
The Devil's from Chicago, now where the hell do they go
When we get in our limousines

We just want to be, where it's all going on
But tell me what do you do when it's over and everyone who loved you is gone
You're our kind of people, you're the church and we're the steeple
But we're all inside the hall

If we've got what you need then we'll give you the speed
To get up and have a ball

We just want to be where it's all going on
But tell me what do you do when it's over and everyone who loved you is gone
And you're just another Prima Donna of rock'n'roll
So please let me know when you want me to go

You're our kind of people you're the church and we're the steeple
But we're all inside the hall
If we've got what you need then we'll give you the speed
To get up and have a ball

We just want to be where it's all going on
But tell me what do you do when it's over and everyone who loved you is gone
And you're just another Prima Donna of rock'n'roll
So please let me know when you want me to goback to top
Your Turn To Remember
( Hensley )

I was always the one who did the thinkin'
It was me, I'm sorry I, who made the plans
There was never a thought we might do somethin' between us
It's so clear I think I'm beginning to understand
I was the one who had to lay it out and pay it out
I would work all night even though I wanted to play out and stay out

Now it's your turn to remember
It's your turn to try to understand

When the time came for staying together
You refused to even talk about for ever
It was easy telling me you love me
I was a little late in finding out the truth
The rule of love was there you had to bend it
Now the damage is done it's impossible to mend it

Now it's your turn to remember
It's your turn to remember

I feel a little better
Talking about her yet her
Memory's not good for me
The skies are not so grey now
I've found a new tune to play now
It's a better song
It'll be followin' onback to top
Showdown
( Hensley/Byron/Box/Kerslake )

It's gonna happen before too long
It's getting hard to tell who's right an who's wrong
I can see it coming so I gotta be strong

There's gonna be a showdown
There's gonna be changes in this town
We're gonna see a showdown

A time's gonna come in the future when
A whole lotta people gonna think again
We're gonna keep right on till you break and then

There's gonna be a showdown
There's gonna be changes in this town
We're gonna see a showdown

Do you want to be out of touch, only you can decide
For something different you're out of luck
'cause on we will ride, on we will ride

The music explodes like a gun in your hand
We're gonna give you more than your head can stand
Than we'll sit down and talk man to man

There's gonna be a showdown
There's gonna be changes in this town
We're gonna see a showdownback to top
Why Did You Go
( Byron/Box/Hensley/Kerslake )

I woke up today with my head in a daze
'cause my love had gone
With nothing to do, just to dream about you
And how we went wrong

But oh oh oh
Why did you go
I loved you so
Didn't you know

I walk into town with my head hanging down
Tryin' to hide my pain
The people I meet, as I float down the street
Tell me try again

But oh oh oh
Why did you go
I loved you so
Didn't you know

When I remember how good it was
It makes me cry
'cause my life's been turned upside down
All I want is someone, but how do you say
Please will you stay
Please will you stay
I'll settle down to the life of a clown
To remain alive
I'll work till I bleed, and if I can succeed
Maybe I'll survive

But oh oh oh
Why did you go
I loved you so
Didn't you knowback to top
A Year Or A Day
( Hensley )

Seen from a height of a thousand miles the earth
looks like the same as it did
How is it we can fly faster than day
but we can find the things we need

Young man said the old man
Let the youth in your heart be at rest
We may all be dead in a year or a day
When the devil is put to the test

The day of creation was our finest hour, it's
something that we ought to defend
But it's been so abused since the first day of light
that no glory can come in the end

Young man cried the old man
There is victory in staying alive
And if you care so little far the world we're in
Why and what do you want to survive

Can't we try, let the past go by, with it's lessons firmly
settled in our minds
To our children one by one and before the darkness comes
let us leave a world full of light of a different kind

In truth they should meet and with love their hearts should beat
And with patience solve the problems of our time
It's wouldn't be so hard to do, it's only up to me and you
Let us not bequeath a life that is a crimeback to top
