The Satin Nights Have It!

Although I like all of their stuff. my favorite is "Nights In White Satin" and "Late Lament" that follows.

Nights in white satin,
Never reaching the end,
Letters Ive written,
Never meaning to send.

Id always missed
With these eyes before,
Just what the truth is
I cant say anymore.

cause I love you,
Yes, I love you,
Oh, how, I love you.

Gazing at people,
Some hand in hand,
Just what Im going thru
They can understand.

Some try to tell me
Thoughts they cannot defend,
Just what you want to be
You will be in the end,

And I love you,
Yes, I love you,
Oh, how, I love you.
Oh, how, I love you.

Nights in white satin,
Never reaching the end,
Letters Ive written,
Never meaning to send.

Beauty Id always missed
With these eyes before,
Just what the truth is
I cant say anymore.

cause I love you,
Yes, I love you,
Oh, how, I love you.
Oh, how, I love you.

cause I love you,
Yes, I love you,
Oh, how, I love you.
Oh, how, I love you

Breathe deep the gathering gloom,
Watch lights fade from every room.
Bedsitter people look back and lament,
Another day's useless energy spent.
Impassioned lovers wrestle as one,
Lonely man cries for love and has none.
New mother picks up and suckles her son,
Senior citizens wish they were young.

Cold hearted orb that rules the night,
Removes the colours from our sight.
Red is grey and yellow white,
But we decide which is right.
And which is an illusion?

 

It takes me back to a place where I used to be carefree and so naive in love. It was a good time, though. Not that I want to go back, but it was less hectic then.

Still to this day, I really love this song and nearly melt every time I hear it. There are not many songs that can do that to this ol' gal anymore!

Oh this has just become my FAVOURITE group!<br />
<br />
Reading the lyrics of all those songs, I just LOVE it! <br />
<br />
To the one who put in "Once upon a time" thank you so much. <br />
<br />
And to the original writer about Nights in White Satin: I would be interested to know what the song means to you, or how you understand those words, not of associated memories, but the actual words of the song. <br />
<br />
I thought it meant one thing for years and then one day I thought of something different and would really be interested to hear other's interpretations. <br />
<br />
what does Nights in White Satin make you think of? I am going to ask that question on the questions page

I have to agree with you Rachael. I love all of their stuff.

Face it, if you're like me, you have to play the album straight through. Not a song I don't wanna listen to, and the album as a whole tells a story from start to finish.

OH! I know! I just love that one, too!

lets not forget Tuesday Afternoon!<br />
<br />
Tuesday afternoon. <br />
I'm just beginning to see, <br />
Now I'm on my way. <br />
It doesn't matter to me, <br />
Chasing the clouds away. <br />
Something calls to me. <br />
The trees are drawing me near, <br />
I've got to find out why. <br />
Those gentle voices I hear <br />
Explain it all with a sigh. <br />
I'm looking at myself, reflections of my mind. <br />
It's just the kind of day to leave myself behind. <br />
So gently swaying through the fairy-land of love, <br />
If you could just come with me and see the beauty of <br />
Tuesday afternoon. <br />
Tuesday afternoon. <br />
Tuesday afternoon. <br />
I'm just beginning to see, <br />
Now I'm on my way. <br />
It doesn't matter to me, <br />
Chasing the clouds away. <br />
Something calls to me. <br />
The trees are drawing me near, <br />
I've got to find out why. <br />
Those gentle voices I hear <br />
Explain it all with a sigh.

Yes! Yes! Yes! I'd have to say that is my second favorite.

I like The Moody Blues too..favorite song "Your Wildest Dreams"<br />
<br />
Once upon a time<br />
Once when you were mine<br />
I remember skies<br />
Reflected in your eyes<br />
I wonder where you are<br />
I wonder if you think about me<br />
Once upon a time<br />
In your wildest dreams<br />
<br />
Once the world was new<br />
Our bodies felt the morning dew<br />
That greets the brand new day<br />
We couldn't tear ourselves away<br />
I wonder if you care<br />
I wonder if you still remember<br />
Once upon a time<br />
In your wildest dreams<br />
<br />
And when the music plays<br />
And when the words are touched with sorrow<br />
When the music plays<br />
I hear the sound I had to follow<br />
Once upon a time<br />
<br />
Once beneath the stars<br />
The universe was ours<br />
Love was all we knew<br />
And all I knew was you<br />
I wonder if you know<br />
I wonder if you think about it<br />
Once upon a time<br />
In your wildest dreams<br />
<br />
And when the music plays<br />
And when the words are touched with sorrow<br />
When the music plays<br />
And when the music plays<br />
I hear the sound I had to follow<br />
Once upon a time<br />
<br />
Once upon a time<br />
Once when you were mine<br />
I remember skies<br />
Mirrored in your eyes<br />
I wonder where you are<br />
I wonder if you think about me<br />
Once upon a time<br />
In your wildest dreams<br />
<br />
In your wildest dreams<br />
In your wildest dreams<br />
In your wildest dreams
