Isn't Life Strange
John Lodge
Original Version


Isn't life strange?
A turn of the page
Can read like before
Can we ask for more?
Each day passes by
How hard man will try
The sea will not wait
You know it makes me want to cry, cry, cry

Wish I could be in your heart
To be one with your love
Wish I could be in your eyes
Looking back there you were
And here we are

Isn't love strange?
A word we arrange
With no thought or care
Maker of despair
Each breath that we breathe
With love we must weave
To make us as one
You know it makes me want to cry, cry, cry

Wish I could be in your heart
To be one with your love
Wish I could be in your eyes
Looking back there you were
And here we are

Isn't life strange?
A turn of the page
A book without light
Unless with love we write
To throw it away
To lose just a day
The quicksand of time
You know it makes me want to cry, cry, cry

Wish I could be in your heart
To be one with your love
Wish I could be in your eyes
Looking back there you were

Wish I could be in your heart
To be one with your love
Wish I could be in your eyes
Looking back there you were

Wish I could be in your heart
To be one with your love
Wish I could be in your eyes
Looking back there you were

You And Me
Justin Hayward and Graeme Edge
Backing Track


There's a leafless tree in Asia
Under the sun there's a homeless man
There's a forest fire in the valley
Where the story all began

What will be our last thought?
Do you think it's coming soon?
Will it be a comfort
Or the pain of a burning wound?

All we are trying to say
Is we are all we've got
You and me just cannot fail
If we never, never stop


You're an ocean full of faces
And you know that we believe
We're just a wave that drifts around you
Singing all our hopes and dreams

We look around in wonder
At the work that has been done
By the visions of our father
Touched by his loving son

All we are trying to say
Is we are all we've got
You and me just cannot fail
If we never, never stop

All we are trying to say
Is we are all we've got
You and me just cannot fail
If we never, never stop

You and me just cannot fail
If we never, ever, never, ever stop

Lost In A Lost World
Mike Pinder

Island
Justin Hayward
Bonus Track


Are you hearing that lonely laughter
As the lights go out on you?
Are you getting that sinking feeling 
As the truth slips into view?

But if you care, don't run away
Your freedom's inside your head
That's what we said

Are you sitting on a tiny island
As the tide rolls in on you?
Are you getting that sinking feeling 
As it all comes home to you?

Picture the wings that take you home
Home to the love you need

That's what you need

Are you hearing that lonely laughter
As the lights go out on you?
Are you getting that sinking feeling 
It all comes home to you?

But if you care, don't run away
Freedom's inside your head
That's what we said
That's what we said
