In Your Blue Eyes
Justin Hayward

Across the sky so clear, so frozen
And a sea so green, so grey
I turn to face a new tomorrow
But darkest fears still haunt today
But stars exploding in the sky
And then I see my face appearing
In your blue eyes

I only live when you're beside me
Only cry when you're away
And if you leave I will be broken
Like a fool my heart gives way
Stars exploding in the sky
And then I see my face appearing
In your blue eyes
In your blue eyes

And now I ride into the sunrise
Now I kneel before your door
I only pray that you'll receive me
And open wide your glorious halls
Stars exploding in the sky
And then I see my face appearing
In your blue eyes

I touch your skin so soft, so tender
Touch your mouth as you let go
And then I watch as you surrender
Take you down to heaven below
Stars exploding in the sky
And then I see my face appearing
In your blue eyes
In your blue eyes
In your blue eyes
In your blue eyes

One Day, Someday
Justin Hayward

Upside down and inside out
Repeatedly defeated
I've been messed about
Kicked in the head
And out of bed
Kicked into believing
It was something that I said

But oh, tomorrow things will change
But tonight I'll think
I'm gonna drown my sorrows again

They say that I'm to blame
It's all my fault
And take the things I say
With just a pinch of salt
I sold my soul
For just one night
And then I spend a lifetime
Trying to make it right

But oh, tomorrow things will change
But tonight I think
I'll roll up, get out of my brain
'Cause one day, someday
Our love will change the world
And you'll come back to me

We put our faith
In God and man
And one of them betrays us
Every chance he can

We stumble on
Through wind and rain
And even in the sunshine
We get burnt again

But oh, tomorrow things might change
But tonight I'll drown in the music
That's keeping me sane

Well there must be truth
There must be love
The world is full of lovers
Underneath the stars above

And I'm still here
Still rolling on
Trying to get "I love you"
Into every song

Oh, tonight I'll dream of you
I'll dream I'm lying there in your arms
Dreaming of you

'Cause one day, someday
Our love will change the world
When you come back to me

One day, someday
Love will reign again
When you come back to me

The Western Sky
Justin Hayward

Isn't it a strange world
With you and me
Gazing at each other
Through a misty scene
Of what might have been

Dreaming of the green hills
Where we could fly
Listening to the night bird
That made us cry
With its lullaby

But we'll overcome
And stand on the heights
We'll be together
In our dreams

As we look around us
The world goes on
We're strangers in a strange land
Trying to find where we don't belong
Shadows in the darkness
Just passing through 
Now that I have found you
I realize what I got to do

But we'll overcome
And stand on the heights
We'll be together
In the end

But we'll overcome
And stand on the heights
We'll be together
In the end

Out on the horizon
The west wind sighs 
A beautiful adventure
Waiting there
In the western sky


Bring me some redemption
Take me home 
Take me where my heart lies
Now I know that I'm not alone

And we'll overcome
And stand on the heights
And we'll be together
In our dreams
 

In the end 



In our dreams 



In the end 


[Just passing through]

[I realize what I got to do]












[The west wind sighs]


[Waiting there]
[In the western sky]


[Oh, take me home]






[In our dreams]
[In our dreams]

[In the end]
[In the end]


[In our dreams]
[In the end]
[In our dreams]

[In the end]
[In our dreams]
[In the end]

The Eastern Sun
Justin Hayward

Let me be
On a mission to your heart
On a journey to your soul
Let me walk by your side
Let me be
Dedicated to your needs
Silent when you breathe
Let me be

Le me be
In the skylark and the stream
In the meadow rich and green
let me lay by your side
Let me be
In the whisper in the trees
Gentle like the breeze
Let me be

And if we find life's mercy
We'll shelter and run from the rain
And maybe somehow somewhere
Heaven will find us again

In the east
As we journey on our way
At the dawning of the day
Let me be by your side
Travel on
Through the gardens and the groves
In the cardamom and cloves
Let me be

Golden brown
Heady fragrance all around
An intoxicating sound
Let me drown in your love
Take me back
Where no frozen heart remains
No sorrow and no shame
Let me be

And if we find life's mercy
We'll shelter and run from the rain
And maybe somehow some way
Heaven will find us again

Let me be on a mission to your heart
On a journey to your soul
Let me walk by your side
Let me be
Dedicated to your needs
Silent when you breathe
Let me be

On the Road to Love
Justin Hayward/Kenny Loggins

Standing at the crossroads
Something's got to come my way
Soon, anytime, any day
Life is for living
It's not a complicated game
Hey, we can ride the road again

So let me see you rise
Let me see the light in your eyes
Bring your love to me
This is how we get to be free
You and I
Earth and Sky
Always on the road to love

Time, the illusion
Is the game that we all play
Rejoice in the spirit of today
From the oceans to the mountains
To the greatest cities of the Earth
Hey, we can sing about rebirth

So let me see you rise
Let me see the light in your eyes
Bring your love to me
This is how we get to be free
You and I
Earth and Sky
Always on the road to love

Somewhere in the distance
Are the friends that we will know
Hey, we are always coming home

So let me see you rise
Let me see the light in your eyes
Bring your love to me
This is how we get to be free
You and I
Earth and Sky
Always on the road to love
You and I
Earth and Sky
Always on the road to love

Lazy Afternoon
Justin Hayward

As the sun begins to fade
On a lazy afternoon
And the quiet shadows move
In the stillness
Is there still a place for me
In a corner of your heart
In the pages of a book
You were reading?

'Cause I remember the days when
We said we would always be true
What on earth is going on with you?

Other restless spirits cry
For the dreams that pass them by
But we were immortal you and I
We were golden
As I loved you then I knew
I had lost you, I've lost you
Like the crystal mountain dew
In the sunshine

'Cause I remember the days when
We swore we would always be true
What on earth am I supposed to do?

I would have give you the world
To stay
If I had only known
What I know today

As the sweet sad music plays
Through the shifting summer haze
Do you think about the days
That are left us?
Every secret, every crime
Every word and every line
Will be written for all time
And forever

I will remember the days when
We swore we would always be true
What on earth is going on with you?

In the Beginning
Justin Hayward

In the beginning
There was love around our lives
In the beginning there was you
Then we found out
That to get you've got to give
And our worlds collided into blue
But I want you
I still want you

As we got stronger
We went our separate ways
That's what we needed and we craved
Time has no mercy
With our days from blue to grey
Still the journey come what may
But I want you
I still want you

Every day finds us searching
For the right words to say
Every night we're still giving
Our love away

In the beginning
There was beauty, there was pain
In the beginning
We were free
Now we're surrounded
By the castles that we made
These fortress walls are all we see
But I want you
I still want you

I want you
I still want you

It's Cold Outside of Your Heart
Justin Hayward

The harder I try
Seems the further I fall
The deeper my love seems to be
And I know that I
Never doubted at all
That someone was waiting for me

Then out of the blue
It was over
Well, how did you think I would survive?

'Cause it's cold outside
Yes it's cold outside of your heart
'Cause it's cold outside
Yes it's cold outside of your heart

I never thought it could happen to me
Like the one that gets you
That you just don't see
And now I don't want to be free
I thought it was always to be
That someone was waiting for me

The longer the shadows
Become in my life
The colder the breeze seems to be
The days roll on by
Still I can't quite believe
That someone's not waiting for me

The flame of desire
Is still burning
The warmth of your body close to mine

'Cause it's cold outside
Yes, it's cold outside of your heart
Yes, it's cold outside
Yes, it's cold outside of your heart

It's a big world to face all alone
And I'm begging you now just to come on home
'Cause now, I don't want to be free
I thought it was always to be
That someone was waiting for me

You know that it's you I need
You see I refuse to believe
That someone's not waiting for me

What You Resist Persists
Justin Hayward

The ghosts of the past have always haunted me
All of these years down this long road
There at my side my fellow travellers
What it all means nobody knows

'Cause what you resist persists
I just let it go, let it flow
And all I can do is this
What you resist - persists

The days of our youth may be behind us now
Our guitars evergreen, forever blue
When people say, "What are you working for?"
Well me, I'm still paying my dues

'Cause what you resist persists
Just let it go, let it flow
And all you can do is this
But what you resist - persists

I'm so glad that I walk this road with you
Into the light
It's a beautiful sight
Feel the love every night
Comin' through

I knew right away that it was meant to be
I knew it was you right from the start
With the way of the world and all its broken dreams
My friend, try to follow your heart

'Cause what you resist persists
Just let it go, let it flow
All you can do is this
What you resist - persists

I just let it go, let it flow
All we can do is this
What you resist - persists

Broken Dream
Justin Hayward

One more illusion shattered 
One more broken dream 
Oh, that the morning brings the sun 
Gone are the days when I could 
Bounce right back again 
See how the tears flow down 
Like sweet summer rain 
Where does it leave me now?
I find myself so free again 

Even the smallest traces 
Of your sweet perfume 
Open the floodgates and I'm helpless 
Now as the moonlight shadows 
Cast across my room 
Only these whispered words 
Are heard in the night 
Only a silent prayer 
I love you still 
I always will 

Out of the dark I stumbled 
Into the light 
Only my fear has tumbled 
I think I always knew 
That I would run to you 

Somewhere there's children playing 
Somewhere far away 
Running with open arms to greet me 
Over the hill the sunset 
Dies and fades away 
I turn and I close the door 
With one last goodbye 
I will return no more 
I'll take my heart and let it fly 

Captivated by You
Justin Hayward

I saw the moon rise over the rooftops last night
And then the world just melted into space
And I was mesmerized
Yes I was captivated by you

And then we walked that highway under the stars
Until we reached that refuge on the hill
And I was hypnotized
Yes I was captivated by you

But why do we live in the shadows,
My dear, when there's a universe out there?
I know we could fall from the heavens
But baby, we should love without a care

And then the sound of laughter captured my heart
And I was back with wings upon my heels
And I was sanctified
Yes I was consecrated by you

I saw the look of wonder light up the room
And then that smile of mischief on your face
And I was mesmerized
Yes I was captivated by you
And then we walked that highway under the stars
Until we reached that refuge on the hill


One Day, Someday
Extended Version
Justin Hayward

Upside down and inside out
Repeatedly defeated
I've been messed about
Kicked in the head
And out of bed
Kicked into believing
It was something that I said

But oh, tomorrow things will change
But tonight I'll think
I'm gonna drown my sorrows again

They say that I'm to blame
It's all my fault
And take the things I say
With just a pinch of salt
I sold my soul
For just one night
And then I spent a lifetime
Trying to make it right

But oh, tomorrow things will change
But tonight I think
I'll roll up, get out of my brain
'Cause one day, someday
Our love will change the world
And you'll come back to me

We put our faith
In God and man
And one of them betrays us
Every chance he can

We stumble on
Through wind and rain
And even in the sunshine
We get burnt again

But oh, tomorrow things might change
But tonight I'll drown in the music
That's keeping me sane

Well there must be truth
There must be love
The world is full of lovers
Underneath the stars above

And I'm still here
Still rolling on
Trying to get "I love you"
Into every song

Oh, tonight I'll dream of you
I'll dream I'm lying there in your arms
Dreaming of you

'Cause one day, someday
Our love will change the world
When you come back to me

One day, someday
Love will reign again
When you come back to me

Night, tonight I'll dream of you
I'll dream I'm lying there in your arms
Dreaming of you

'Cause one day, someday
Our love will change the world
When you come back to me

Rising
