Tuesday Afternoon
Justin Hayward
Alternate Mix


Tuesday afternoon
I'm just beginning to see
Now I'm on my way
It doesn't matter to me
Chasing the clouds away

Something calls to me
The trees are drawing me near
I've got to find out why
Those gentle voices I hear
Explain it all with a sigh

I'm looking at myself 
Reflections of my mind
It's just the kind of day 
To leave myself behind
So gently swaying 
Through the fairy-land of love
If you'll just come with me 
And see the beauty of

Tuesday afternoon
Tuesday afternoon

Tuesday, afternoon
I'm just beginning to see
Now I'm on my way
It doesn't matter to me
Chasing the clouds away

Something calls to me
The trees are drawing me near
I've got to find out why
Those gentle voices I hear
Explain it all with a sigh

Dawn Is A Feeling
Michael Pinder
Alternate Mix


Dawn is a feeling
A beautiful ceiling
The smell of grass
Just makes you pass
Into a dream

You're here today
No future fears
This day will last
A thousand years
If you want it to

You look around you
Things they astound you
So breathe in deep
You're not asleep
Open your mind

You're here today
No future fears
This day will last
A thousand years
If you want it to

Do you understand
That all over this land
There's a feeling
In minds far and near
Things are becoming clear
With a meaning

Now that you're knowing
Pleasure starts flowing
It's true life flies
Faster than eyes
Could ever see

You're here today
No future fears
This day will last
A thousand years
If you want it to

Sun Set
Michael Pinder
Alternate Version Without Orchestra


When the sun goes down
And the clouds all frown
Night has begun for the sunset

See it with your eyes
Earth re-energized
By the sun's rays every day
Take a look out there
Planets everywhere

When the sun goes down
And the clouds all frown
Night has begun for the sunset

Shadows on the ground
Never make a sound
Fading away in the sunset
Night has now become
Day for everyone

I can see it all
From this great height
I can feel the sun
Slipping out of sight
And the world still goes on
Through the night

Twilight Time
Ray Thomas
Alternate Vocal Mix


Twilight Time, to dream awhile
In veils of deepening gloom
As fantasy strides over colourful skies
The fog disappearing from view

In twilight time, dream with me awhile

A nightingale plays a dark mellow phrase
Of notes that are rich and so true
An aerial display by the firefly brigade
Dancing to tunes no one knew

In twilight time, dream with me awhile
In twilight time, dream with me awhile

Building castles in the air
Whistling to the wind
As nature bows down her head
See what tomorrow brings

Twilight time, dream with me awhile

Bats take to wing, like puppets on string
Prancing in cool evening air
In a sightless glide, no reason to hide
Away from the sun's blinding stare

In twilight time, dream with me awhile
In twilight time, dream with me awhile

Nights In White Satin
Justin Hayward
1967 Mono Single Master


Nights in white satin
Never reaching the end
Letters I've written
Never meaning to send

Beauty I'd always missed
With these eyes before
Just what the truth is
I can't say anymore

'Cause I love you
Yes I love you
Oh how I love you

Gazing at people
Some hand in hand
Just what I'm going through
They can understand

Some try to tell me
Thoughts they cannot defend
Just what you want to be
You will be in the end

And I love you
Yes, I love you
Oh, how I love you
Oh, how I love you

Nights in white satin
Never reaching the end
Letters I've written
Never meaning to send

Beauty I'd always missed
With these eyes before
Just what the truth is
I can't say anymore

'Cause I love you
Yes, I love you
Oh, how I love you
Oh, how I love you

'Cause I love you
Yes, I love you
Oh, how I love you
Oh, how I love you

Fly Me High
Justin Hayward
1967 Mono Single Master


I'm up to the eyes and I love everyone 
Today I could cry I could reach for the sun 
I'm walking on air and I'm here and I'm there 
I travel the sky but for what I don't care 

Fly me straight and fly me high 
Fly me straight and fly me high 

I'm up and I'm down and I'm gone, I'm around 
I'm driving along with no wheels on the ground 
Hang on to me tight 'cause it doesn't last long 
A few hours more and it'll be gone 

Fly me straight and fly me high 
Fly me straight and fly me high 
I leave you behind on the streets in the gloom 
I'm up here alone and there's plenty of room 
You won't see me, I'll see you, I'm too fast 
Whoops! Here I come, Now I'm gone, now I'm past

Fly me straight and fly me high 
Fly me straight and fly me high 

I'm up to the eyes and I love everyone 
Today I could cry I could reach for the sun 
I'm walking on air and I'm here and I'm there 
I travel the sky but for what I don't care 

Fly me straight and fly me high 
Fly me straight and fly me high

I Really Haven't Got The Time
Mike Pinder
1967 Mono Single Master


You want me to ride 
In your car outside 
Spend some time with you 
Just an hour or two 

But I really, I really haven't 
I really haven't got the time 
I really, I really haven't 
I really haven't got the time 
I really haven't got the time 

I'm a busy man 
Workin' when I can 
I got no time to lend 
I got no time, time to spend 

Oh no, I really, I really haven't 
I really haven't got the time 
Oh no, I really, I really haven't 
I really haven't got the time 
I really haven't got the time 
Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

I really; I really haven't 
I really haven't got the time 
Oh no, I really; I really haven't 
I really haven't got the time 
I really haven't got the time 

Workin' nine 'til five 
Got to stay alive 
I've got to stay alive
Find somebody who 
Go find somebody who
Got some time for you 
Who's got the time for you 

But I really 
No, no, no, no, I really haven't 
I really haven't got the time 
Oh no, I really
No, no, no, no, I really haven't 
I really haven't got the time 
I really haven't got the time 
Really haven't got the time 
Really haven't got the time

Love and Beauty
Mike Pinder
1967 Mono Single Master


I look around at other people 
I brush their shoulders at the corner of the street 
But all they notice is their feet 
It wasn't meant this way
Their minds have gone astray 

If they could lift their eyes they'd see 
There's people smiling just like me and I'll agree 
It's not their fault because it's raining 
It's all work and no play, it's just another day 

[Love] Love and beauty [Love]
[Love] Love and beauty [Love]
Should be everybody's duty 
To welcome every man as a friend 

I wish that I could change the world 
For every boy there'd be a girl for him to know 
And maybe people would look up 
Then they might realise they're not the only ones alive 

[Love] Love and beauty [Love]
[Love] Love and beauty [Love]
[Love] Love and beauty [Love]
Should be everybody's duty 
To welcome every man as a friend 

[Love] Love and beauty [Love]
[Love] Love and beauty [Love]

Leave This Man Alone
Justin Hayward
1967 Mono Single Master


Ah, leave this man alone
Ah, leave this man alone 

Young girls with long faces 
Come to me at night and stay the night 
Why am I so lonely? 
Tell me is it right?  Is it right?
Leave them, leave them, leave them 
Leave those things alone 
Leave them, leave them, leave them
Leave those things alone 

Someone said I loved you
But I can't think where
I can't think where
You know so much about me 
So don't stand and stare
Stand and stare 
Leave me, leave me, leave me 
Leave my mind alone 
Leave me, leave me, leave me
Leave this man alone 

Ah, ah, leave this man alone 
Ah, ah, leave this 
Ah, ah, leave this man alone 
Ah, ah, leave this 

Someone said I loved you 
But I can't think where 
I can't think where
You know so much about me 
So don't stand and stare
Stand and stare 
Leave me, leave me, leave me
Leave my mind alone 
Leave me, leave me, leave me
Leave this man alone 

Ah, ah, leave this man alone 
Ah, ah, leave this man alone 
Ahhhh

Cities
Justin Hayward
1967 Mono Single Master


Neon, the city's sun 
Taxis like beetles run, and I see 
Pavements with yellow lines 
Grey walls and big bold signs with darkness 
Up above, all around 
In the sky, on the ground 
This is what, I have found 
Cities, cities 

Here the flowers don't grow 
Here the river's just a sewer 
People who move below 
Buildings with smells and noise and darkness 
Up above, all around 
In the sky, on the ground
This is what, I have found 
Cities, cities 

Not for me 
No, no I don't believe you 
It's not the place to be 
No, no I won't believe you 

Here the flowers don't grow 
Here the river's just a sewer
People who move below 
Buildings with smells and noise and darkness 
Up above, all around 
In the sky, on the ground 
This is what I have found 
Cities, cities, cities 

Long Summer Days
Justin Hayward
1967 Stereo Studio Recording


Long summer days, I keep thinking 
What to do with my time 
So many ways, I keep sinking 
What's to do with my time?

Take me back, I don't mind 
Take me back, I've got time 
Take me back, and let me start again 

Time hurries by, I keep thinking 
What's to do in our time 
Don't let it by, just keep thinking 
What's to do in our time?

Take me back, I don't mind 
Take me back, I've got time 
Take me back, and let me start again 

Utopia's within our sight 
Don't kick it or we lose it 
Though you think the world's too fast 
It's that way 'cause we choose it 
Automation is the cry 
Our minds have been forgotten 
To understand me, you must try 
My thoughts are turning rotten 

Oh, please, please 
Don't mess it up now for me 
Please, please 
Don't sit there and condemn me 
Please, please, please 

Long summer days, I keep thinking 
What's to do with my time 
So many ways, I keep sinking 
What's to do with my time?

Take me back, I don't mind 
Take me back, I've got time 
Take me back, and let me start again 
Ah, ah, ah, ah long summer days 

Please Think About It
Mike Pinder
1967 Stereo Studio Recording


There in your eyes, I see 
That you want to be free
There by your side, I'll be 
If you still want me 

Please think about it 
I need your love, I'm no good without it [Think about it...]
Please think about it 
Give me your love, I can't live without it 

Oh no, never leave my side 
Baby please decide 
I'm in love with you 
I hope you want me too 
Don't go, say there's nothing wrong 
Stay where you belong 
I'll be good to you 
That's all I wanna do 

Please think about it
I need your love, I'm no good without it
Please think about it
Give me your love, I can't live without it 

Oh no, never leave my side 
Baby please decide 
I'm in love with you 
I hope you want me, too 
Don't go, Say there's nothing wrong 
Stay where you belong 
I'll be good to you 
That's all I wanna do 
So, if you have to go 
I won't stand in your way 
But, if you decide to stay 
I will be your guide 

Please think about it
I need your love, I'm no good without it
Please think about it
Give me your love, I can't live without it 
Oh no, don't go 

Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood
Benjamin / Marcus / Caldwell
BBC Sessions: "Saturday Club", May 9, 1967


Baby, don't you understand me now 
Sometimes I feel a little mad 
Don't you know that no-one alive 
Can always be an angel 
When things go wrong he's bound to feel a little bad 

Cause I'm just a soul who's intentions are good 
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood 

Sometimes baby, ohhh I feel so carefree 
With a joy that's hard to hide 
Sometimes I spend all night alone regretting 
And you've hurt me deep down inside 

Yes I'm just a soul who's intentions are good 
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood 

When I get edgey, I want you to know 
That I never mean to take it out on you 
Oh life has it's problems and I get my share 
But that's one thing that I never mean to do 

'Cause I love you 
Ohhh, baby, don't you know I'm human 
With thoughts like any other man 
Sometimes I spend all night alone regretting 
Some foolish stupid thing that you've done 

Cause I'm just a soul who's intentions are good 
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood 

I'm just a soul who's intentions are good 
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood

Peak Hour
John Lodge
BBC Sessions: "Easybeat", September 20, 1967


I see it all through my window, it seems
Never failing like millions of bees
All that is wrong
No time to be won
All they need to do
What can be done

Peak hour
Peak hour
Peak hour

Minds are subject to what should be done
Problems solved, time cannot be won
One hour a day
One hour at night
Sees crowds of people
All meant for flight

Peak hour
Peak hour
Peak hour

It makes me want to run out and tell them
They've got time
Take a step back out
And look in 
I found out
I've got time....

Minds are subject to what should be done
Problems solved, time cannot be won
One hour a day
One hour at night
Sees crowds of people
All meant for flight

Peak hour
Peak hour
Peak hour

Nights in White Satin
Justin Hayward
BBC Sessions: "The David Symonds Show" January 1, 1968


Nights in white satin
Never reaching the end
Letters I've written
Never meaning to send

Beauty I'd always missed
With these eyes before
Just what the truth is
I can't say anymore

'Cause I love you
Yes I love you
Oh how I love you

Gazing at people

Just what I'm going through

Some try to tell me
Thoughts they cannot defend
Just what you want to be
You will be in the end

And I love you
Yes, I love you
Oh, how I love you
Oh, how I love you

Nights in white satin
Never reaching the end
Letters I've written
Never meaning to send

Beauty I'd always missed
With these eyes before
Just what the truth is
I can't say anymore

'Cause I love you
Yes, I love you
Oh, how I love you
Oh, how I love you

'Cause I love you

Twilight Time
Ray Thomas
BBC Sessions: "The David Symonds Show" January 1, 1968


Twilight Time, to dream awhile
In veils of deepening gloom
As fantasy strides over colourful skies
The fog disappearing from view

In twilight time, dream with me awhile

A nightingale plays a dark mellow phrase
Of notes that are rich and so true
An aerial display by the firefly brigade
Dancing to tunes no one knew

In twilight time, dream with me awhile
In twilight time, dream with me awhile

Building castles in the air
Whistling to the wind
As nature bows down her head
See what tomorrow brings

Twilight time, dream with me awhile

Bats take to wing, like puppets on string
Prancing in cool evening air
In a sightless glide, no reason to hide
Away from the sun's blinding stare

In twilight time, dream with me awhile
In twilight time, dream with me awhile
