Mike's Number One
Michael Pinder
Bonus Track


I want to tell you something
You might like to know
There's gonna be a happening
Do you know?
Do you know?

Listen all you people
Reaping what you sow
There's going to be a happening
Will you go?
Will you go?

We've all started something
And it's begun to show
We're gonna see the glory 
And we'll know
And we'll glow

Now isn't the time
We've got to make up all our minds
To open our eyes
Tell no more lies
All the world is waiting for sunrise
All the world is waiting for sun
Rise

I want to tell you something 
You might like to know
There's gonna be a happening
Do you know?
Do you know?

Listen all you people
Reaping what you sow
There's gonna be a happening
Will you go?
Will you go?

We've all started something
And it's begun to show
We're gonna see the glory
And we'll know

We've all started something
And it's begun to show
We're gonna see the glory
And we'll know

Question
Justin Hayward
Alternate Version


Why do we never get an answer
When we're knocking at the door?
With a thousand million questions
About hate and death and war

'Cause when we stop and look around us
There is nothing that we need
In a world of persecution
That is burning in its greed


Why do we never get an answer
When we're knocking at the door?
Because the truth is hard to swallow
That's what the war of love is for


It's not the way that you say it
When you do those things to me
It's more the way that you mean it
When you tell me what will be

And when you stop and think about it
You won't believe it's true
That all the love you've been giving
Has all been meant for you

I'm looking for someone to change my life
I'm looking for a miracle in my life
And if you could see what it's done to me
To lose the the love I knew
Could safely lead me through

Between the silence of the mountains
And the crashing of the sea
There lies a land I once lived in
And she's waiting there for me.

But in the grey of the morning
My mind becomes confused
Between the dead and the sleeping
And the road that I must choose

I'm looking for someone to change my life
I'm looking for a miracle in my life
And if you could see what it's done to me
To lose the the love I knew
Could safely lead me to
The land that I once knew
To learn as we grow old
The secrets of our souls

It's not the way that you say it
When you do those things to me
It's more the way you really mean it
When you tell me what will be


Why do we never get an answer
When we're knocking at the door?
With a thousand million questions
About hate and death and war

'Cause when we stop and look around us
There is nothing that we need
In a world of persecution
That is burning in its greed

Why do we never get an answer
When we're knocking at the door?

Minstrel's Song
John Lodge
Original Mix


Words, a simple song
A minstrel sings
A way of life in his eyes

Hear the morning call of waking birds
When they are singing, bringing
Love -- Love -- Love

Everywhere love is all around
Everywhere love is all around

Now the winter's gone
Cold wind has blown
The endless stream in our lives

Where the minstrel sings
This simple song
He's always bringing, singing,
Love -- Love -- Love

Everywhere love is all around
Everywhere love is all around

Listen to the one
Who sings of love
Follow our friend
Our wandering friend

Listen to the one
Who sings of love
Everywhere love is around
Around -- Around -- Around

Here the nations sing
Our minstrel's song
As he walks by in their lives
Soon the spring will come
And everyone 
Will all be singing, bringing
Love -- Love -- Love

Everywhere love is all around
Everywhere love is all around

Listen to the one
Who sings of love
Follow our friend
Our wandering friend
Listen to the one
Who sings of love
Everywhere love is around, around

Listen to the one
Who sings of love
Follow our friend
Our wandering friend
Listen to the one
Who sings of love
Everywhere love is around
Around -- Around
Around -- Around
Around -- Around....

It's Up To You
Justin Hayward
Original Mix


When the breeze between us calls
Love comes and lingers into our lives
And the leaves begin to fall
You point your finger at me

I love you (yeah)
I love you

In the sadness of your smile 
Love is an island way out to sea
But it seems so long ago 
We have been ready trying to be free

And it's up to you
Why won't you say?
Make our lives turn out this way

If they knew
That we have got nothing to lose
No reason to hide from what's true

In the world of me and you
All is forgotten when we're inside
And the words that pass us by
I am not listening, all of it's lies

And it's up to you
Why won't you say?
Make our lives turn out this way

If they knew
That we have got nothing to lose
No reason to hide from what's true
That we have got nothing to lose...

Don't You Feel Small
Graeme Edge
Original Mix


Ask the mirror on the wall
Who's the biggest fool of all
Bet you feel small
It happens to us all

See the world
Ask what it's for
Understanding, nothing more
Don't you feel small?
It happens to us all

Time is now to spread your voice
Time's to come there'll be no choice
Why do you feel small?
It happens to us all

Look at progress, then count the cost
We'll spoil the seas
With the rivers we've lost


See the writing on the wall
Hear the mirror's warning call
That's why you feel small
It happens to us all

Ask the mirror on the wall
Who's the biggest fool of all
Bet you feel small
It happens to us all

Dawning Is The Day
Justin Hayward
Full Original Mix


Rise, let us see you
Dawning is the day
Miss, misty meadow
You will find your way

Wake up in the morning to yourself 
And leave this crazy life behind you
Listen, we're trying to find you

Flow to the sea
You know where to go
But still we are free
No one tells the wind which way to blow

Wake up in the morning to yourself
Open your eyes and start to be you
Listen, we think we can see you

Baby, there's no price upon your head
Sing it, shout it
Now the angry words have all been said
Do it, don't doubt it


So rise, let us see you
Dawning is the day
Miss, misty meadow
You will find your way

Wake up in the morning to yourself
Open your head and look around you
Listen, we think we have found you

Listen, we think we have found you
Listen, we think we have found you
Listen, we think we have found you
Listen, we think we have found you
Listen, we think we have found you
Listen, we think we can see you...
