HIGHWAY Justin Hayward and John Lodge
It's a long, long highway Will this road of life lead me to someone? Who sees the world in a grain of sand? Who holds the future in the palm of their hand? No one else can see things like I do It's a long, long highway Looking for a home where the seed was sown And the harvest was young Will this road of life lead me to someone, someone? The rays of sun and the light of dawn My inspiration since the day I was born No one else can see things like I do It's a long, long highway But don't make the start on an empty heart When you think you've begun Let the road of life lead you to someone, someone Nothing is serious to me I live for what will be I can always be a dreamer So trust your heart Don't fall apart, you'll see At your journey's end You will find a friend in me It's a long, long highway Will this road of life lead me to someone? You touched the dream that was in your eyes You took so long only to realise No one else can love you like I do It's a long, long highway Looking for a home where the seed was sown And my harvest was young Will this road of life lead me to someone? It's a long, long highway But don't make a start On an empty heart It's a long, long highway Let this road of life lead you to someone, someone


Say It With Love CD Single
Found on the "Say It With Love" CD single, "Highway" was the first song recorded for the Keys of the Kingdom album. The song never made it to the album. Now found on two compilations (Time Traveller and Anthology), as well as the foreign release of Strange Times (1999) this memorable song has finally found its audience.

THIS IS THE MOMENT Found on the Album "Soccer Rocks the Globe" Recorded for the 1994 World games Frank Wildhorn and Leslie Bricusse
This is the moment This is the day This is the moment When I know I'm on my way Every endeavor I have made ever Is coming into play Is here and now today This is the moment This is the time When the momentum and The moment are in rhyme Give me this moment My precious chance I'll gather up my best And make some sense at last This is the moment When all I've done All of the dreaming Scheming and screaming Becomes one This is the day Just see it shine When all I've lived for Becomes mine This is the moment This is the hour When I can open up Tomorrow like a flower And put my hand to Everything I planned to Fulfil my grand design See all my stars align This is the moment My final test Destiny beckoned I never reckoned Second best I won't look down I must not fall This is the moment The sweetest moment of them all This is the moment So damn all the odds This day or never I'll sit forever with the gods When I look back I will recall Moment for moment This was the moment The greatest moment of them all




Soccer Rocks The Globe Album
This song is originally from the musical Jekyll and Hyde (1990), which eventually went to Broadway in 1997. The Moody Blues cover of this song is also found on the bonus disk (disk 5) of the box set "Time Traveller"

What Child Is This? Traditional (1992)
What child is this, who, laid to rest On Mary's lap, is sleeping? Whom angels greet with anthems sweet While shepherds watch are keeping This, this is Christ the King Whom shepherds guard and angels sing Haste, haste to bring him laud The babe, the son of Mary This, this is Christ the King, Whom shepherds guard and angels sing: Haste, haste to bring him laud, The babe, the son of Mary The babe, the son of Mary The babe, the son of Mary





This song is usually reissued
every Christmas on a seasonal
rock-n-roll Christmas album.

COCA COLA AD #2
Chasing the sun A few weeks of fun Away from the maddening crowd We're so glad, too tired to pout Peaceful and cool, sipping Coke by the pool Use your imagination Holiday time [Ahhhh...] Everything's fine [Ahhhh...] Free as a bird Traffic's unheard Racing through white crystal sand Or watching a butterfly land Sipping on Coke while we tan on a float Use your imagination, holiday time Things go better with Coca-Cola Things go better with Coke, holiday time...

"The Moody Blues - saying sweet things over Coke!"
Lead vocals by Justin Hayward and John Lodge Copyright 1969, The Coca-Cola Company

MOODY BLUES IN SPANISH


Noches De Seda (Spanish-Nights in White Satin)
Noches en blanco Que no tienen final Cartas escritas Que jamás llegaran Cosas que nunca vi A pesar de mirar No puedo decir Dónde está la verdad. Porque te amo Sí te amo Cómo te amo. Miro a la gente Que viene y va Lo que me pasa No comprenderan Mil pensamientos Uno solo es real Lo que tú quieras ser Eso es lo que serás Y te amo Sí te amo Cómo te amo Cómo te amo Noches en blanco Que no tienen final Cartas escritas Que jamás llegaran Cosas que nunca vi A pesar de mirar No puedo decir Dónde está la verdad Porque te amo Sí te amo Cómo te amo Cómo te amo Porque te amo Sí te amo Cómo te amo Cómo te amo




Stars In Spanish
This song is part of a collection of popular hits sung in Spanish by the original artists

Al Fin Voy A Encontrarte (I Know You're Out There Somewhere)
Sé que en alguna parte, cualquier parte Al fin voy a encontrarte Hay un lugar en donde esperas tú. Pasaron ya las sombras, puedo ver con claridad El vacío de la calle gris que voy dejando atrás El poder de lo que siento hace fácil entender Todo aquello que nos prometimos está por suceder. Sé que en alguna parte, cualquier parte Al fin voy a encontrarte y tú escucharás mi voz No sé de que manera, como, cuando Al fin voy a encontrarte Y volveré al lugar donde estás tú. Detrás de cada rostro, cada gesto, cada voz Me doy cuenta hoy que te buscaba a ti Fueron tantas, tantas veces, las que yo me equivoqué Pero sé que el día llegará por fin. Sé que en alguna parte, cualquier parte Al fin voy a encontrarte y tú escucharás mi voz No sé de que manera, como, cuando Al fin voy a encontrarte Y volveré al lugar donde estás tú. Yo sé que al fin voy a encontrarte Yo sé que al fin voy a encontrarte Yo sé que al fin voy a encontrarte Yo sé que al fin voy a encontrarte Palabras de mi infancia hoy las vuelvo a recordar Quien se llega a ver es ciego de verdad Los que tienen tanto miedo que no quieren intentar Verdadero amor, eterno amor, nunca encontrarán. Sé que en alguna parte, cualquier parte Al fin voy a encontrarte y tú escucharás mi voz No sé de que manera, como, cuando Al fin voy a encontrarte Y volveré al lugar donde estás tú. Yo presiento que estás cerca (sé que estás muy cerca) Sé que puede suceder (puede suceder) Y pronto volveremos a estar juntos otra vez Y nos despertaremos (nos despertaremos) Juntos en la oscuridad (en la oscuridad) Lo mismo que en mis sueños pero al fin será verdad. Sé que en alguna parte, cualquier parte Al fin voy a encontrarte y tú escucharás mi voz No sé de que manera, como, cuando Al fin voy a encontrarte Y volveré al lugar donde estás tú.
I would like to thank three people, Raymond Ramirez who tried to help me with this before I went on hiatus in 2002; Pedro Jover, who transcribed the words for Al Fin Voy A Encontrarte. Pedro runs the Spanish ELOZoom site for Electric Light Orchestra, my second favorite group! I would also like to thank Lito Benveniste from Argentina for taking the time to help me correct the lyrics for Noches De Seda. THANK YOU Lito and Pedro!!

LIVE PERFORMANCES


Please Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood BBC Live Broadcast (December 16, 1967) Benjamin / Marcus / Caldwell
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
 

JUSTIN HAYWARD & JOHN LODGE Across The Universe (Words and Music by John Lennon) Sung at Live Tribute to John Lennon, May 5, 1990
Words are flowing out Like endless rain into a paper cup They slither wildly as they slip away Across the universe Pools of sorrow, Waves of joy are drifting through my open mind, Possessing and caressing me Nothing's gonna change my world Nothing's gonna change my world Images of broken light which dance Before me like a million eyes That call me on and on across the universe Thoughts meander like a restless wind inside a letter box They tumble blindly as they make their way Across the universe Nothing's gonna change my world Nothing's gonna change my world Sounds of laughter shades of love are Ringing through my open ears inciting and inviting me Limitless undying love which shines around me like a Million suns It calls me on and on Across the universe Nothing's gonna change my world Nothing's gonna change my world
