I Know You're Out There Somewhere
Justin Hayward

I know you're out there somewhere
Somewhere, somewhere
I know I'll find you somehow
Somehow, somehow
And somehow I'll return again to you

The mist is lifting slowly
I can see the way ahead
And I've left behind the empty streets
That once inspired my life
And the strength of the emotion
Is like thunder in the air
'Cause the promise that we made each other
Haunts me to the end

I know you're out there somewhere
Somewhere, somewhere
I know you're out there somewhere
Somewhere you can hear my voice
I know I'll find you somehow
Somehow, somehow
I know I'll find you somehow
And somehow I'll return again to you

The secret of your beauty
And the mystery of your soul
I've been searching for in everyone I meet
And the times I've been mistaken
It's impossible to say
And the grass is growing
Underneath our feet

I know you're out there somewhere
Somewhere, somewhere
I know you're out there somewhere
Somewhere you can hear my voice
I know I'll find you somehow
Somehow, somehow
I know I'll find you somehow
And somehow I'll return again to you


You see, I know you're out there somewhere
Oh yes, I know you're out there somewhere

You see, I know I'll find you somehow
Oh yes, I know I'll find you somehow


The words that I remember
From my childhood still are true
That there's none so blind
As those who will not see
And to those who lack the courage
And say it's dangerous to try
Well they just don't know
That love eternal will not be denied

I know you're out there somewhere
Somewhere, somewhere
I know you're out there somewhere
Somewhere you can hear my voice
I know I'll find you somehow
Somehow, somehow
I know I'll find you somehow
And somehow I'll return again to you

Yes I know it's going to happen
I can feel you getting near
And soon we'll be returning
To the fountain of our youth
And if you wake up wondering
In the darkness I'll be there
My arms will close around you
And protect you with the truth

I know you're out there somewhere
Somewhere, somewhere
I know you're out there somewhere
Somewhere you can hear my voice
I know I'll find you somehow
Somehow, somehow
I know I'll find you somehow
And somehow I'll return again to you


 

Want To Be With You
Justin Hayward and John Lodge

When I think of all the things
That we've been through
And all the things we've yet to do
I, I start to realise
Without you by my side
The world is such a lonely place
Want to be with you

I remember all the heartaches we have known
The angry nights when we were lonely
The jealousy and pain
Can we remain the same?
The world will have to hold its breath
Want to be with you

I don't need a reason
I don't need to understand
I just want to be
Want to be with you

Only want your love
Only want you by my side
Only want to be
Want to be with you

And when I look back down that road
I see the turnings that we both made
The choice we had to make
The promises we break
Are nothing more than memories
Want to be with you

Ahhh, ahhh, ahhh, ahhh, ahhh
The jealousy and pain
Can we remain the same?
The world will have to hold its breath
Want to be with you

I don't need a reason
I don't need to understand
I just want to be
Want to be with you

Only want your love
Only want you by my side
Only want to be
Want to be with you

River Of Endless Love
Justin Hayward and John Lodge


I'm looking for a better world
Where there's no more hurt
Where there's only hope
For the eagle and the dove
I, I can see your face
Nothing can take your place
If we sail away on a river of endless love

Ahhh, the river of endless love...

I'm living in the hands of time
On the wings of love
On the edge of night
Where there's darkness everywhere
I, I won't be denied
I'm never going to leave your side
I will always be
On the river of endless love

Ahhh, the river of endless love...

In the silence just before the dawn
The shadows lose their form
We rise to greet the morning
In the calm that comes before the storm
A troubled and a restless heart is born

Ahhh, the river of endless love...

I'm tearing down the walls of hate
Gonna start again 
Gonna turn it round
Gonna build it with a prayer
I can always dream
And nothing is what it seems
If you lose your way
You can always find us there

Ahhh, the river of endless love

In the silence just before the dawn
The shadows lose their form
We rise to greet the morning
In the calm that comes before the storm
A troubled and a restless heart is born

Ahhh, the river of endless love
Ahhh, the river of endless love
Ahhh, the river of endless love....

No More Lies
Justin Hayward


I need you like you need me
Truly and completely
Never be apart
I think that you should tell me
Come right out and tell me
Just what's in your heart

And if you think that it's all right
Let's make a deal and work it out
We'll walk into the sunset, you and I
With no more alibis
When we tell each other
No more lies

No more lies, no more lies
No more lies...

Well, truth is my addiction
Stranger still than fiction
Wider than the sky
And songs that have such feeling
Words that have such meaning
Dreams that never die

And if you think it sounds o.k.
Let's turn around and start again
We'll walk beside the ocean hand in hand
With no more alibis
When we tell each other
No more lies

No more lies, no more lies

I sometimes think that maybe
You're just a little girl
You know I love you, baby
I've got to tell the world

So that's the final story
The truth in all its glory
See how much I care
You know you drive me crazy
Thrill me and amaze me
Drive me to despair

And if you think that now feels right
Let's close the door and dim the lights
We'll greet the dawn together, side by side
Just look into my eyes
'Cause you know I'll tell you
No more lies

No more lies, no more lies
No more lies, no more lies
No more lies, no more lies
No more lies


 

Here Comes The Weekend
John Lodge


Somewhere in the night
There's a heart that beats so fast
I can feel the heat
Of the fire in your eyes

Burning like a naked flame
Waiting for the ice to break
Counting down the days
Waiting for the weekend

Lonely is the night
When all are sleeping
Silence is a friend you walk with
With no one else to talk to

But on a Friday night
It's all right, it's all right
You can be who you want to be
Take off for the weekend
If you can dance you can dance with me

'Cause it's Friday night
It's all right, it's all right
Nothing's gonna stop me now
I'm all wired up and I'm ready to go
I'm on my way
Let's get on with the show

Here comes the weekend
Here comes the weekend

Somewhere in the night
There's a heart that beats so fast
I can hear your voice
Talk to me tonight
Taking on a different face
Every time I hear your name
Counting down the days
Waiting for the weekend

Lonely is the night
When all are sleeping
Silence is a friend you walk with
With no one else to talk to

But on a Friday night
It's all right, it's all right
You can be who you want to be
Take off for the weekend
If you dance, you can dance with me

'Cause it's a Friday night
It's all right, it's all right
And nothing's gonna stop me now
I'm all wired up and I'm on my way
It's the weekend
And it's starting today

Here comes the weekend
Here comes the weekend
Here comes the weekend

Vintage Wine
Justin Hayward


I remember the taste of the vintage wine
From '63 through to '69
And I'm proud of the things we believed in then
If I had the chance I'd go around again

Oh, I tell you
We were young and free
Oh, I'll tell you
'Cause I was there you see

Ohhh, ohhhh, oohhhh
Ohhh, ohhhh, oohhhh

And I look to the future with open arms
And the songs that flow from my old guitar
And I want to be there when the music plays
And the lights go up on the empty stage

Oh, I tell you
Music set me free
Oh, I tell you
It sounds so good to me

Ohhh, ohhhh, oohhhh
Ohhh, ohhhh, oohhhh

And if you're into wandering
Underneath the stars
We'll take the trip together
Through this magic world of ours

And if you're still uncertain
Just what we can be
Well, baby, make your mind up
Get you things and follow me

'Cause if you're into romance, baby
Love will find a way
And if you're into dreaming
Dream with me

I remember the sound of the children's prayer
The laughing eyes and the golden hair
And as hard as I try
Not a day goes by
That I don't think of them

I, I tell you
We can be so free
Oh, I tell you
If you'll be there with me

Ohhh, ohhhh, oohhhh
Ohhh, ohhhh, oohhhh

Ohhh, ohhhh, oohhhh
Ohhh, ohhhh, oohhhh

Ohhh, ohhhh, oohhhh

Breaking Point
Justin Hayward and John Lodge


Is that the wind
On your face?
Are you sure you're alone?
Are you sure you're alone?

Feel the chill
Of an empty space
Are you sure you're alone?
Are you sure you're alone?

In the middle of the night
Is that your heart you hear?
Or a train to nowhere
It's pounding in your ear

Have you reached your breaking point?
Have you reached your breaking point, tonight?

Only when you're sleeping can you drift away
No one can hurt you
Listen to the secret of your dreams
Though you want to sleep forever
Still you must return

Hands of ice
Down your spine
Are you sure you're alone?
Are you sure you're alone?

Feel the grip
Of a clinging vine
Are you sure you're alone?
Are you sure you're alone?

In the middle of the night
Is that your voice I hear?
Or the wind that's calling
Back across the years?

Have you reached your breaking point?
Have you reached your breaking point, tonight?

Miracle
Justin Hayward and John Lodge


I closed the door and I walked away
From the life I knew
On a night in June
I took a chance and I lost control
Trying to find out why
On a night in July

Why this hesitation?
I can feel that the night is slipping away
Wanna drown in the ocean of your love
Wanna dance in the moonlight
Looking for a miracle

I left the city on a wave of despair
Just to stand on my own
On an August night
From the valley of broken hearts
Gonna make a new start in September

Why this confusion?
I can feel that the night is slipping away
Wanna walk from the shadows to the sun
Just to dream on a summer night
Dream about a miracle
Looking for a miracle

Never had the chance before
To turn the tide my way
In the heat of the summer night
You took my breath away
Looking for a miracle


Wanna walk from the shadows to the sun
Just to dream on a summer night
Dream about a miracle
Your love is just a miracle

I closed the door and I walked away
From the life I knew
On a night in June
I took a chance and I lost control
Trying to find out why
On a night in July

Why this hesitation?
I can feel that the night is slipping away
Wanna drown in the ocean of your love
Wanna dance in the moonlight

Looking for a miracle
Love is just a miracle
Looking for a miracle
Your love is just a miracle
Looking for a miracle
Love is just a miracle


Love Is On The Run
John Lodge


Just because it's raining here
It doesn't mean the sun isn't shining
Somewhere else for someone
You have loved
But who's not near you anymore

When your love is on the run
Don't fall apart at what's begun
It's just the healing process
Of your heart

When your dream has lost its course
Don't waste your time closing doors
You'll be the last to know
When love has gone

Love is on the run
Love is on the run
Love is on the run
Love is on the run from me

Love is on the run
Love is on the run
Love is on the run from me

Couldn't find the words to say I love you
Couldn't fight the hurt of holding on
Couldn't hope
Couldn't dream
Couldn't see tomorrow
Without your love
I can't go on

Love is on the run
Love is on the run
Love is on the run
Love is on the run from me

When your love is on the run
Don't fall apart at what's begun
It's just the healing process
Of your heart

When your dream has lost its course
Don't waste your time closing doors
You'll be the last to know
When love has gone

Love is on the run
Love is on the run
Love is on the run from me

Deep
Justin Hayward


Every time I hear the sound of the rain
Beating on my roof again
I want to taste your love
And I want to go deep
Deep, I want to go deep
Deep, I want to go deep

Every time I lift my eyes to the sky
Something in my heart asks why
I want to know the truth
And I want to go deep
Deep, I want to go deep

Like the footprints
Disappearing from the sand
I try to catch the thought
It slips right through my hand
And as the darkness
Throws its cloak upon the ground
I start to run to you
I've got to take you down

I want to go deep
Deep, I want to go deep
Deep, I want to go deep


Every time I feel I'm losing my way
The power of your love remains
I want to touch your love
And I want to go deep
Deep, I want to go deep
Deep, I want to go deep
Deep, I want to go deep
