Gypsy
Justin Hayward
Alternate Version


A gypsy of a strange and distant time
Traveling in panic, all direction blind
Aching for the warmth of a burning sun
Freezing in the emptiness of where he'd come from
Ahhhh, ahhhhh
Left without a hope of coming home

Speeding through a shadow of a million years
Darkness is the only sound to reach his ears
Frightening him with the visions of eternity
Screaming for a future that can never be
Ahhh, ahhhh
Left without a hope of coming home

Ahhhh, ahhhh


A gypsy of a strange and distant time
Traveling in panic all direction blind
Aching for the warmth of a burning sun
Freezing in the emptiness of where he'd come from
Ahhhh, ahhhhh
Left without a hope of coming home

Left without a hope of coming home
Left without a hope of coming home...

Candle Of Life
John Lodge
Alternate Version


Something you can't hide
Says you're lonely
Hidden deep inside
Of you only
It's there for you to see
Take a look and be
Burn slowly the candle of life

Something there outside
Says we're only
In the hands of time
Falling slowly
It's there for us to know
With love that we can go
Burn slowly the candle of life


So love everybody
And make them your friend
So love everybody
And make them your friend
        
Something you can't hide
Says you're lonely
Hidden deep inside
Of you only
It's there for you to see
Take a look and be
Burn slowly the candle of life

Something there outside
Says we're only
In the hands of time
Falling slowly
It's there for us to know
With love that we can go
Burn slowly the candle of life

Sun Is Still Shining
Mike Pinder
Extended Version


The sun is still shining
Look at the view
Moon is still dining
With me and you
Now that we're out here
Open your heart
To the universe
Of which we're a part

Everything's turning
Turning around
See with your mind
Leave your body behind
Now that we're out here
Open your heart
To the universe
Of which we're a part

But if you want to play
Stay right back on earth
Waiting for rebirth

The sun is still shining
Look at the view
Moon is still dining
With me and you
Now that we're out here
Open your heart
To the universe
Of which we're a part

But if you want to play
Stay right back on earth
Waiting for rebirth

Gypsy

BBC Radio Concert December 17, 1969


A gypsy of a strange and distant time
Traveling in panic, all direction blind
Aching for the warmth of a burning sun
Freezing in the emptiness of where he'd come from
Ahhhh, ahhhhh
Left without a hope of coming home

Speeding through a shadow of a million years
Darkness is the only sound to reach his ears
Frightening him with the visions of eternity

The Sunset
Mike Pinder
BBC Radio Concert December 17, 1969


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

Never Comes The Day
Justin Hayward
BBC Radio Concert December 17, 1969


Work away today
Work away tomorrow
Never comes the day 
For my love and me
I feel her gently sighing 
As the evening slips away

If only you knew what's inside of me now
You wouldn't want to know me, somehow
But you will love me tonight
We alone will be all right
In the end

Give just a little bit more
Take a little bit less
From each other tonight
Admit what you're feeling
And see what's in front of you
It's never out of your sight
You know it's true
We all know that it's true

Work away today
Think about tomorrow
Never comes the day 
For my love and me
I feel her gently sighing 
As the evening slips away

If only you knew what's inside of me now
You wouldn't want to know me, somehow
But you will love me tonight
We alone will be all right
In the end

Give just a little bit more
Take a little bit less
From each other tonight
Admit what you're feeling
And see what's in front of you
It's never out of your sight
You know it's true
We all know that it's true
You know it's true
We all know that it's true
You know it's true
We all know that it's true....

Are You Sitting Comfortably
Ray Thomas and Justin Hayward
BBC Radio Concert December 17, 1969


Take another sip my love 
And see what you will see
A fleet of golden galleons
On a crystal sea

Are you sitting comfortably?
Let Merlin cast his spell...

Ride along the winds of time 
And see where we have been
The glorious age of Camelot
When Guinevere was Queen

It all unfolds before your eyes
As Merlin casts his spell...

The Seven Wonders of the World 
He'll lay before your feet
In far-off lands, on distant shores 
So many friends to meet

Are you sitting comfortably?
Let Merlin cast his spell...

The Dream
Graeme Edge
BBC Radio Concert December 17, 1969


When the white eagle of the North 
Is flying overhead
And the browns, reds and golds of autumn 
Lie in the gutter, dead

Remember then, the summer birds 
With wings of fire flaying
Come to witness Spring's new hope 
Born of leaves decaying

As new life will come from death
Love will come at leisure
Love of love, love of life
And giving without measure

Gives in return a wondrous yearn 
Of a promise almost seen
Live hand-in-hand 
And together we'll stand 

On the threshold of a dream....

Have You Heard (Part 1)
Mike Pinder
BBC Radio Concert December 17, 1969


Now you know that you are real
Show your friends that you and me
Belong to the same world
Turned on to the same word
Have you heard?

Now you know that you are free
Living all your life at ease
Each day has its always
A look down life's hallways, doorways
To lead you there

The Voyage
Mike Pinder
BBC Radio Concert December 17, 1969



~~ Instrumental ~~



Have You Heard (Part 2)
Mike Pinder
BBC Radio Concert December 17, 1969


Now you know how nice it feels
Scatter good seed in the fields
Life's ours for the making
Eternity's waiting, waiting
For you and me

Now you know that you are real
Show your friends that you and me
Belong to the same world
Turned on to the same word
Have you heard?

Nights in White Satin
Justin Hayward
BBC Radio Concert December 17, 1969


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

Legend Of A Mind
Ray Thomas
BBC Radio Concert December 17, 1969


Timothy Leary's dead
No, no, no
He's outside looking in

Timothy Leary's dead
No, no, no
He's outside looking in

He'll fly his astral plane
Takes you trips around the bay
Brings you back the same day
Timothy Leary 
Timothy Leary

Timothy Leary's dead
No, no, no
He's outside looking in

Timothy Leary's dead
No, no, no
He's outside looking in

He'll fly his astral plane
Takes you trips around the bay
Brings you back the same day
Timothy Leary 
Timothy Leary

Along the coast you'll hear them boast
About a light they say that shines so clear
So raise your glass, we'll drink a toast
To the little man 
Who sells you thrills along the pier

He'll take you up, he'll bring you down
He'll plant your feet back firmly on the ground
He flies so high, he swoops so low
He knows exactly which way he's gonna go
Timothy Leary
Timothy Leary

He'll take you up, he'll bring you down
He'll plant your feet back on the ground
He'll fly so high, he'll swoop so low
Timothy Leary

He'll fly his astral plane
He'll take you trips around the bay
He'll bring you back the same day
Timothy Leary 
Timothy Leary
