Take Your Chances
Justin Hayward

The secret that you keep 
Is hidden way down deep 
I see it in the window of your soul 
I hear it in your voice 
I feel it in your touch 
The love that's in your heart you can control 

So take your chances 
Let's not pretend 
'Cause we may never 
Pass this way again 

The pleasures of the night 
The darkness and the light 
It's hard to see the writing on the wall 
I hear it in your voice 
I feel it in your touch 
I see it through the window of your soul 

So take your chances 
Let's not pretend 
'Cause we may never 
Pass this way again 

Is It Just A Game
Justin Hayward

The world is a lonely place 
But I soon found out 
That love was the saving grace 
I know that once in a thousand years 
There will come a time 
When joy will replace our fears 
And you and I 
Will fly away together 

Is it just a game that we're playing now? 
Were we born to win? Can we lose somehow? 
*Does it all come down to what we've done before? 
*Is it truth and love that we're searching for? 

The world is a lonely place 
And the rain that falls 
Like tears running down your face 
I know that once I can feel 
The sun shining down on me 
I'll run to your warm embrace 
And you and I 
Will fly away together 

Is it just a game that we're playing now? 
Were we born to win? Can we lose somehow? 
*Does it all come down to what we've done before? 
*Is it peace and love that we're searching for? 

The world is a lonely place 

Is it just a game that we're playing now? 
Were we born to win? Can we lose somehow? 
Does it all come down to what we've done before? 
Is it peace and love that we're searching for? 

The truth may be hard to find 
But then love is blind

One Again
Justin Hayward

Why worry? 
It's alright 
I'm with you through the night 
I've listened to your dreams 
I feel the presence that you've seen 

Step out of the darkness 
And into the light 
The words of the promise 
That was made were right 
No tears and no troubles 
No heartache, no pain 
I know that we're going to be one again 

Still waters run so deep 
The world listens when you speak 
One nation of the free 
All believing that there'll be 

No troubles and no hunger 
No heartache, no pain 
I know that we're living to be one again 
Walk out of the darkness and into the sun 
And wake to the morning when we live as one 

Step out of the darkness and into the light 
The fire that we've kindled is still burning bright 
The dawn of tomorrow comes back to today 
We'll capture that moment, and we'll fly away 

Moving Mountains
Justin Hayward

The cool of the evening 
The strange unknown of the night 
The warmth of the morning 
The graceful bird in its flight 
Well don't be afraid of the world 
Let me take you by the hand 
We can move mountains 

The gift of tomorrow 
The friends we've left far behind 
The ones we remember 
Their love will live in our minds 
Well don't turn around 
Don't look back 
Let me take you by the hand 
We can move mountains 

Cause the sands of time 
Are on our side 
Put your hand in mine 
Let our fortunes ride 
We'll sail away 
On a wave of love 
Let the four winds blow 
From heaven above 

The wind on the water seems 
To whisper soft in my ear 
The call of the ocean 
Across the waves I can hear 
Don't be afraid of the world 
Let me take you by the hand 
We can move mountains 

Cause the sands of time 
Are on our side 
Put your hand in mine 
Let our fortunes ride 
We'll sail away 
On a wave of love 
Let the four winds blow 
>From heaven above 

Silverbird
Justin Hayward and Jeff Wayne

I can understand the rain that falls 
Waves that crash upon the shore 
And I know that everyone 
Must have freedom today 
And baby, in my dreams I see 
I see you walking away 

I can understand the moon and stars 
Wonders of this world of ours  
And I see the fire of life 
Burning brighter each day 
And baby, in my dreams I see 
I see you walking away 
So far away 
I see you walking away 

So fly, my silverbird 
You know that I 
Am waiting for you 
And everywhere you go 
I'm with you still 
I know you will 
Return someday 

Through the rain and the snow 
Whe there's nowhere left to go 
I hope you'll say:
"Oh darling, now I understand and I'm home 
To stay"

When I close my eyes, I see you there
In everyone and everywhere 
And I feel the power of love 
Like an ocean today 
And baby, in my dreams I see 
I see you walking away 
So far away 
I see you walking away 

So fly, my silverbird 
You know that I 
Am waiting for you 
And everywhere you go 
I'm with you still
I know you will 
Return someday 

Through the rain and the snow 
When there's nowhere left to go 
I hope you'll say:
"Oh darling, now I understand and I'm home 
To stay"

So fly, my silverbird 
You know that I 
Am waiting for you 
And everywhere you go 
I'm with you still
I know you will 
Return someday 

Through the rain
And the snow 
When there's nowhere left to go 
I hope you'll say:
"Oh darling, now I understand and I'm home 
To stay"

Through the rain 
And the snow 
Where there's nowhere left to go 
I hope you'll say:
"Oh darling, now I understand and I'm home 
To stay"


 

Lost And Found
Justin Hayward

I was lost
I was wandering in the dark
I was searching for the spark
That would light my life
I was lost
I didn't know where I was from
I was always on the run
Trying to find myself
I was out on my own
Then you brought me back home
I was lost but now I'm found
I'm so glad that you're around
To shelter me

I was lost 
I didn't know the words to say 
I just couldn't find a way 
To express myself 
I was blind 
I just couldn't read my mind 
I didn't know what I would find 
When I met myself 
I was out on my own 
Then you brought me back home 
I was lost 
But now I'm found 
I thank God that you're around 
To shelter me 

I love the way you tell me 
That you love me, yes I do 
And I love the way you ask me 
If I love you, yes I do 

I was lost 
There was so much I had to learn 
I didn't know which way to turn 
Till I turned to you 
I was wrong 
I should have seen it all along 
I couldn't find where I belonged 
'till I belonged to you 
I was out on my own 
Then you brought me back home 
I was lost 
But now I'm found 
I thank God that you're around 
To shelter me 

Goodbye
Justin Hayward

Over and over 
I keep going over 
The things that you said 
Then walked out of my life 
The chain has been broken 
The words have been spoken 
The door it is open 
And waiting for you 

Somewhere there's a reason 
There's a reason why 
Why love has to falter 
Why love has to die 

And I know 
Somewhere there's an answer 
But it can't tell me 
What I need to hear 
What I need to see, and I go 

Over and over 
I keep going over 
The things that you said 
Then walked out of my life 
Goodbye is all that comes to me 
Goodbye is all I can hear 
So long, it seems so long to me now

Somewhere in the distance 
There's a child who sees 
Looking for a reason 
Looking to be free, and I know 
Somewhere there's an answer 
But it can't tell me 
What I need to hear 
What I need to see, and I go 

Over and over 
The things that you said 
Then walked out of my life 
Goodbye is all that comes to me 
Goodbye is all I can hear 
So long, it seems so long for me now

Who Knows
Justin Hayward

Sometimes I find myself searching 
As I walk the streets all alone 
Searching the faces for someone 
Someone to take me back home
Back home 

Who knows where the future leads us?
The waters are wide, the road is long 
I pray for a hand to guide us 
And welcome us back where we belong 

So many miles come between us 
And fate seems to keep us apart 
Fortune once brought us together 
Is there a still a place in your heart?
In your heart 

Someday when my journey's over 
I'll come stumbling back to you, my love 
And I know when the circle's broken 
I'll come tumbling back to you, my love 

But I long for the day 
I can call you and say 
I'm a step on the way back to you 

Sometimes I find myself searching 
As I walk the streets all alone 
I'm searching the faces for someone 
Someone to take me back home 
Back home 

Who knows what the morning brings us?
The moment of truth, the power of love 
I know where the future leads me 
It's leading me back to you, my love

The Best Is Yet To Come
Clifford T. Ward

Where did we go wrong?
We had all the magic to put us on our way 
And all the tragedy that we ever want to see 
But you know I'm right 
When I say the best is yet to come 

Where did we go wrong?
Was it so enlightening we couldn't find our way? 
All so frightening 
We couldn't see which move to make 
But you know I'm right 
When I say the best is yet to come 

And if you leave me now 
Like you say you might 
Oh please don't leave me now 
'Cause I know, if you do 
None of this will come true, so 

Where do we go now?
Now your heart is aching 
And leading you astray 
Me, I'm burning up 
Tryin' to get you to stay 
'Cause you know I'm right 
When I say the best is yet to come 
And you know the best is still to come 

And if you leave me now 
Like you say you might 
Oh please don't leave me now 
'Cause I know, if you do 
None of this will come true, so 

Where did we go wrong?
We had all the magic 
To put us on our way 
And all the tragedy 
That we ever want to see 
But you know I'm right 
When I say the best is yet to come 
And you know the best is yet to come 


 
BONUS TRACK RELEASED ON CD

The Lights Are Low
Justin Hayward

The lights are low 
And the music now is slow 
And we ask the night 
How can this be wrong and feel so right? 

They say it's true 
I'm a fool to trust in you 
But then who are they 
Who are they to know?
I need you so 

Did you ever look in the mirror 
And see a stranger standing there? 
Did you ever drive for miles and miles 
And wonder how on earth you got yourself there?

I feel your magic as we move and sway 
Seems like my self-control is slipping away 
Let me taste the love 
Let me drink the wine 
That's yours and mine 

Did you ever wake up in the morning 
To find that nothing
Nothing was the same 
And the only thing that really matters 
Is the pleasure and the pain 

The lights are low 
And the music now is slow 
And we ask the night 
How can this be wrong, and feel so right?
