11. Blue World [Single Edit]
12. Sitting at the Wheel [Steven Greenberg remix]

Blue World
Justin Hayward

Heart and soul took control
Took control of me
Paid my dues, spread the news
Hands across the sea
Put me down, turned me round
Turned me round to see
Marble halls, open doors
Someone found the key

'Cause it's easier to try
Than to prove it can't be done
And it's easier to stay
Than to turn around and run

It's a blue world
It takes somebody to help somebody
Oh, it's a blue world
It's a new world
It needs somebody to love somebody
Oh, it's a blue world

Underground, sight and sound
Human symphony
Heard the voice, had no choice
Needed to be free
Fly me high, touch the sky
Left the earth below
Heard the line, saw the sign
Knew which way to go

'Cause it's easier to try
Than to prove it can't be done
And it's easier to stay
Than to turn around and run

It's a blue world
It takes somebody to help somebody
Oh, it's a blue world
It's a new world
It needs somebody to love somebody
Oh, it's a blue world
It's a blue world
It takes somebody to help somebody
Oh, it's a blue world


It's a blue world
It needs somebody to love somebody
Oh, it's a blue world

Sitting At The Wheel
John Lodge [Steven Greenberg remix]


I can hear the music playing
I can hear the word that you're saying
I can see the lovelight in your eyes
What's the use in looking for an answer?
I might find out
It could be a disaster
Hold on to your own time
Don't let go
Don't let go

I'm sitting at the wheel
Watching the river roll, roll on by, baby
Sitting at the wheel
Don't let the river run dry

I can see your face on a piece of tomorrow
I'll hang my dream on a road I can follow
I gotta touch the warmth of your love 
[Keep the warmth of your love]
Not gonna chance a change of direction
Gonna keep on rolling till I find the connection
Hold on to your lifeline
Don't let go
Don't let go

I'm sitting at the wheel
Sitting at the wheel...0

Like a voyeur standing at the edge of time
Looking for a reason
It's got no rhyme
Love took a corner
Shot off for a mile
I'm sitting at the wheel
Rock on, Rocker!


I can feel the music playing 
I can hear the word that you're saying 
I can see the lovelife in your eyes 
Ain't no use in looking for an answer
I might find out
That it could be a disaster
Hold on to your own time
Don't let go
Don't let go

I'm sitting at the wheel
Watching the river roll
Roll on by, baby
Sitting at the wheel
Don't let the river run dry
I sitting at...
I'm sitting at the wheel


I'm sitting at the wheel
Watching the river roll 
Roll on by, baby
Sitting at the wheel
Watching the river roll 
Roll on by, baby
Sitting at the wheel
Watching the river roll 
Roll on by, baby
Sitting at the wheel
Don't let the river run dry

I'm sitting at the wheel
Watching the river roll
Rock and roll on by
Sitting at the wheel 
I'm just sitting...
I'm sitting at the wheel
I'm sitting at the wheel

I'm sitting at the wheel
Watching the river roll by
Rock and Roll on by
Sitting at the wheel
I'm just sitting...
Sitting at the wheel

If you're sitting at the wheel
Watch this rocker roll by
