Lyrics

New State of Mind
06:00
Waiting for the moment when the moment has been waiting all the time
Staring at the golden heights, wondering are you ready for the climb

Are you ready for this?
Are you ready for that?
Will you take the chance?
Well you've got the time?

If you're ready to believe it, treasure you'll find
Don't mistake the chance, focus your eyes
When you're ready to receive it, fear's left behind
A new perspective
A new state of mind

Always on the edge of what could be the greatest moment in this life
Watching as the theme builds, left only to wonder in delight

You've got to let it go
Wanting to feel
There's no reason for deceiving
To a new perspective
A new state of mind

You've got to let yourself believe in all that can be
Wanting to feel just what it means to be free
There's no reason for deceiving, focus your eyes

Sometimes you feel you want to run away from it all
Sometimes you hear the voices of the past come to call
But there's no giving up when you are giving it your all

Hoping, forgiving and loving, the qualities of life
Designing the future we're building, the dreams taking flight

Are you ready for love?...

A new state of mind

Waiting for the moment when the moment has been waiting all the time
Reaching for the golden heights without a doubt you're ready for the climb

You've got to set it out
No escaping
There's a reason for your being

You've got to set yourself believing and fortunes you'll find
No escaping once you've made up your mind
There's a reason for your being, focus your eyes
To a new perspective
A new state of mind
Open Your Eyes
05:14
You've got a great imagination
We carry on in the same old way no lesson learned from yesterday
Talk of changes lost in pages of paper work

I believe it
I've received it
I believe that

How can we refuse to see
What could be our final destiny
Still we go on from day to day knowing what could be true
Wish I knew... Wish I knew

Open your eyes and discover you're not the only one
In disguise do you wonder when the change is gonna come

Open your eyes
You've got a great imagination

We cast the world, we set the stage for what could be the darkest age
Short exchanges form perfect strangers we'll never know
But wish we knew

I believe that
I've received it
I believe it

It's time to face reality
Questioning the powers that be
Are we too confused to see
Wish I knew... Wish I knew

Open your eyes and discover you're not the only one
In disguise do you wonder when the change is gonna come

I believe it
I've received it
I believe that

Open your eyes
You've got a great imagination
Show it... show it
It's time to face reality
Things aren't what they used to be
What I see in you, you see in me
Wish I knew... Wish I knew

Open your eyes and discover you're not the only one
In disguise do you wonder when the change is gonna come
Change is gonna come... You've got a great imagination

You've got a great imagination
You've got a sweet imagination
You've got a deep imagination coming
Open your eyes
Show it... show it... show it...
Universal Garden
06:16
Looking up into the endless sky, staring into the maze of time
Our existence caught in the blink of an eye
Imagining other worlds we try
Realizing somehow we're all part of this
Wondrous cosmical tapestry

Beyond the sun... Beyond the sky
Are where the real questions lie
Wanting to know where it begins
The puzzle piece we are missing
Starlight... Flowering
Endlessly through the universal garden... garden above

Looking up into the endless sky... Through space and time
Staring into the maze of time... We'll fly
Our existence caught in the blink of an eye... Retracing years
Imagining other worlds we try... No fears
Realizing somehow we're all part of this... Blazing a new trail
Wondrous cosmical tapestry

Beyond the sun... Beyond the sky
Are where the real questions lie
Wanting to know where it begins
The puzzle piece we are missing
Starlight... Flowering
Endlessly through the universal garden... garden above

Investigate the science of illusion, we benefit without knowing
Our time is man-made, our fear is man-made, delusion man-made, religion man-made
Love is forever flowering endlessly through the universal garden... garden above

Beyond the sun... Beyond the sky
Are where the real questions lie
Wanting to know where it begins
The puzzle piece we are missing
Beyond the sun... Beyond the sky
Are where the real questions lie
Universal garden above
No Way We Can Lose
04:56
There can be no answer for us all
There can be no stopping what is ever changing
Living for the perfect dream, it's time to make a resolution
There will be some peace in our hearts and our minds

We can all find a way to resolve our differences
There's no way we can lose
When we all realize that there are no differences
There's no way we can lose

Ready or not... we can all find a way

We will be forgiving to the ones we love
We will see the blossoming of the new spirit
Shaping everything to our design we'll build a brighter future
We will free ourselves from chains that would bind

We can all find a way to resolve our differences
There's no way we can lose
When we all realize that there are no differences
There's no way we can lose

No way can we lose
Ready or not, ready or not
There's no way we can lose

We can all find a way
Ready or not, ready or not

We can all find a way to resolve our differences
There's no way we can lose
When we all realize that there are no differences
There's no way we can lose

No way can we lose
Ready or not, ready or not
No way can we lose
Fortune Seller
05:01
Fortune, seller, finder, seeker, giver, taker, wisdom keeper
Fortune, sailing, finder, seeker, giver, taker, wisdom maker

Take hold of the answer
Give life to the dreams you were foretold
Looking into the future, trace the steps into the great unknown

They say that time is like a river that flows
And where that river ends nobody knows
And so we navigate our way through this life
Riding the river, riding the river

Take hold of your chances
Defy all the odds that have been made
Making every movement count, we step toward a golden age
You know...only you know

Fortune, seller, finder, seeker, giver, taker, wisdom keeper
Fortune, sailing, finder, seeker, giver, taker, wisdom maker

They say that time is like a river that flows
And where that river ends nobody knows
And so we navigate our way through this life
Riding the river, riding the river

Giving into the power
Giving into the magic of the ride, using imagination
We take a step into the other side

Fortune, seller, finder, seeker, giver, taker, wisdom keeper

They say that time is like a river that flows
And where that river ends nobody knows
And so we navigate our way through this life
Riding the river, riding the river
Man in the Moon
04:41
I am the man in the moon and I hope to shine upon you very soon
Waiting in the night to bathe you all in moonlight
I am the man, I am the man in the moon.

Silently revolving wandering through the heavens above on my own
Round and round and round I go
When I stop no one will know

I am a creature of the night and I hope to come and shed a little light
Although the universe our teacher I remain the central feature
I am the man, I am the man in the moon.

Round and round and round I go
When I stop no one will know

Silently revolving wandering through the heavens above on my own

I am the man in the moon and I hope to shine upon you very soon
Waiting in the night to bathe you all in moonlight
I am the man, I am the man in the moon.

Round and round and round I go
When I stop no one will know

I am the man, man in the moon...

It's that old devil moon
Wonderlove
06:08
I believed that one day love would cast a line
I believed there was something more for me to find
Hoping today... hoping tomorrow, taking it all in stride
I believed, I could be chasing my mind

There you were...
Like a dream to me... Wonderlove
Could this really be... Wonderlove
Can I make you see, you're the world to me

I believe if we could only take the time
Eventually we would learn each other's life
Open the heart... Give it a moment, leaving the cares behind
Happily, we could be two of a kind

There you were...
Like a dream to me... Wonderlove
We were meant to be... Wonderlove
Can I make you see, you're the world to me

It was the very first day that I came alive,
the door flung open there was a vision couldn't believe my eyes,
everyone immortal like as though they didn't get it,
everyone believing here at last receiving.
Wonderlove, it's a place we all belong. Wonderlove

I believe I could walk a thousand miles
Just to see the vision of your simple smile
Everyday... wanting to follow, forever by your side
Faithfully, you are my destiny

There you were...
Wonderlove
We were meant to be... Wonderlove
It's the world where we belong... Wonderlove
Together we will faithfully... Wonderlove
Can I make you see, you're the world to me

Just imagine what you give is who you are and where you're going to
If you're looking for the wisdom of the world all you've got to do let it coming through
Be forever
Wonderlove... just imagine
From the Balcony
02:43
Now I've heard you singing, dreaming that you know me well
Let me tell you far away, looking down on you

If you know my spirit, always shall you know me well
Singing is your pleasure, looking down on you

Now I hear you singing, saying that you know me well
Take me to your promise, new state of mind

Now I feel you sighing saying that you understand
Feeling all the power, looking down on you

You know that I would be the one who waits forever
You know that someday we will find a way to share our love

Now I hear you singing, dreaming that you know me well
Let me tell you far away, new state of mind
Love Shine
04:38
I won't sleep again until I sleep again with you
I won't dream again until I dream again with you

One look in your eyes and I see the light shining through
I truly believe in the magic of all that you do
Give me hope... When I need it
Give me peace... When I feel it
Give me life... When I breathe it
Give me dreams... Keep me dreaming
One look in your eyes and I know it's right for me and you

Feel the love shine... Do you feel the love shine...
1234567 all good people

Your flame is the fire that burns in the night guiding me through
Drawn out of the darkness and into the light you bring me to
Give me hope... When I need it
Give me peace... When I feel it
Give me life... When I breathe it
Give me dreams... Keep me dreaming
One look in your eyes and I know it's right for me and you

Do you feel the love shine... Feel the love that shines
I won't dream again until I dream again with you
1234567 all good people got to feel the love
I won't sleep again until I sleep again with you

One chance in a million to find a true love between two
Taken by the powers of what you believe knowing you can't lose
Give me hope... When I need it
Give me peace... When I feel it
Give me life... When I breathe it
Give me dreams... Keep me dreaming
One look in your eyes and I know it's right for me and you

Do you feel the love shine... Feel the love that shines
I won't dream again until I dream again with you
I won't sleep again until 1234567

It was the first time candlelight, something happens in your life
It's the dance we all go through, bring it in now, bring it in true, bring it in fast
Bring it right through right through

Feel the love shine
Somehow Someday

Jon Anderson - Animation (1982) (as Boundaries)
So the blue bird will fly o'er the world and the stars
In the moonlight she prays for forgiveness that's ours
Only now can she rest from the singing of songs
And the freedom of love

Chances are when you give the love you have
You will find it coming right back
Giving into the love, you know it's right
It's a feeling you'll long remember

Hearts will be chosen
Somehow... Someday
Hearts will be chosen

Sailing into the dreams of what could be
Reaching out for some form of contact
Waiting for the one you know is right
All you're needing to do, surrender

Someday
Hearts will be chosen
Somehow... Someday
Hearts will be chosen

So many times on the clouds of forgiveness
We walk through the country and feel so at ease
A gentle reminder how things really are
In our homelands of love

Face to face with the one you really love
Moving forward down the right track
Chances are when you give all that you have
You will find it flooding right back

Someday
Hearts will be chosen
Somehow... Someday
Hearts will be chosen

O'er the green mountains and o'er the green valleys
The blue bird of faith sails far off to the shore
She sleeps on the breeze of the coming of love
For the homelands of Ireland

So many times on the clouds of forgiveness
We walk through the country and feel so at ease
A gentle reminder how things really are
In our homelands of love

So the blue bird will fly o'er the world and the stars
In the moonlight she prays for forgiveness that's ours
Only now can she rest from the singing of songs
And the freedom of love
The Solution
05:29
No need to wonder "do you belong?"
No need to worry, you can be strong
Don't disbelieve it, let your fears go
There must be more to this life and we all know

Deep inside... the solution, staring you down
Looking for... the solution, bringing you round
Round and round we go, round and round we go

The past can haunt your future so
Shadows are falling, look out below
Voices are calling echoes unknown
There must be more to this life than we all know

Looking for... the solution,staring you down
Deep inside... the solution, bringing you round

Giving in, giving out, do the best you can do
Giving in, giving out, it's all up to you
Giving in, giving out, do the best you can do
Giving in, giving out, it's all up to you

Over and under and down we go
Down we go
Caught at the crossroads, "Which way to go?"
Path unknown
Choosing the right path? Only you know

Looking for... the solution, you hold the key
Deep inside... the solution, set yourself free
Round and round we go, round and round we go

Giving in, giving out, do the best you can do
Giving in, giving out, its all up to you
It's all up to you

It's all up to you
