    And life too short to carry on For fifty five days I ve been flying around the world Here in syncopated time while my tangled web of rhyme Dangles aimlessly time drips slowly by And all I ve got to do is sit and cry Look in my eyes I know That man is surely just a man It s no surprise I know The road is far too long And life too short to carry on Les Holroyd RAK Publishing Ltd Paper Wings Another Holroyd Pritchard collaboration with Mel again helping out with the lyrics Part of the inspiration came from a visit to Paris and a trip up the Eiffel Tower where they saw a plaque in memory of someone who had fallen to their death from the tower a broken man without a dream Lyrics His crazy frame against the dawn His hungry leap and ragged fall A suicidal perch is now laid bare To searching eyes and empty stares A fearful silence hits the crowd The air hangs heavy with the sound Of useless wings against the morning sky As paper yields before their eyes Oh can you see him now A broken man without a dream Oh can you hear him now A futile laugh above the screams Les Holroyd RAK Publishing Ltd The Great 1974 Mining Disaster In some ways this song was a forerunner of Poor Man s Moody Blues in that it was written by deconstructing a well known song by another band then rebuilding it with new lyrics In this case the original song was the Bee Gees New York Mining Disaster 1941 which John adapted to comment on the 1974 UK miners strike that finally brought down the Conservative government Subtle alterations to the original lyrics such as changing don t go talking too loud you ll cause a landslide to all you have to do is smile to cause a landslide were combined with contemporary political and musical references to people such as a sailor oh so gay Prime Minister Ted Heath Mister Groan miners leader Joe Gormley and songs by David Bowie The Man Who Sold The World and Space Oddity about a major out in space Lyrics Heard a song the other day About a major out in space And though the song was kind of grey It took me far away Heard the news the other day About a sailor oh so gay And though his policies were grey They took me far away Cause I couldn t stand the thought Of being taken in again Have you seen my life Mr Groan Do you know what it s like to be outside All you have to do is smile to cause a landslide And you do and you do Mr Groan Heard a song just yesterday About a man who sold the world away And though the song was still quite grey It took me far away Cause I couldn t stand the thought Of

    say Is there something inbetween Is it something I ve not seen Did it change so fast or was it just a dream Time and time again I ve tried to recreate the past few days Evaluate the constants from the haze But every time I think I m right they say I m wrong This day is night and night is day It s there in black and white Night is light and dark is day If I disagree they say I m insane And the treatment will begin If I say that the day is light They just point my eyes to the blinding night saying We can t set you free if you always disagree So the State is going to pay your doctor s fee They put me out in the pouring rain To enjoy the sun or to feel the pain Of the nightmare life s become I asked a man in the street today Or was it yesterday or the day before Is there something I ve not seen Is there something inbetween Did it change so fast or was it just a dream The rock on which I stand is now beneath the ever flowing sand The sheer realities are here to stay I m looking out at life and now I know what s wrong and right It s what you hear and what you read and what they say I saw a man in the street today Ask another man Is it night or day He just stared smiled in disbelief He said Friend it s your lucky day I m a party man won t you step this way I ve got something you ve not seen Now I know it s not a dream It just came so fast that something inbetween John Lees RAK Publishing Ltd Ra The only song written by Woolly on this album but what a song Ra was the Ancient Egyptian sun god and Woolly was inspired by the subject to write one his most dramatic pieces Doubtless David Rohl with his lifelong interest in Egyptology approved of the theme and helped to achieve the semi classical feel of the recording Woolly cheerfully admits to having borrowed the first four notes from Mahler s Symphony No 1 although as he says it s hardly a major musical theme in the song The delicate verses lead to some suitably languid guitar work from John before a reprise of the opening section builds up to the extremely powerful ending one of the best arguments I ve ever heard for the extended dynamic range of CD Lyrics Burning fiery furnace in the sky Burns the ground around us where we lie Sad old black faced thunder will you rise Bring your cloud and shadows to our eyes Blazing star in heaven mirror bright Dry our seas and rivers with your light Universal sentinel you are Guide of all who look on from afar God of old now

    John s pen As mentioned previously the verse beginning Love was like a summer breeze which is printed on the inner sleeve and the CD booklet does not appear on the recording Memories differ as to whether it was actually recorded but we haven t been able to track down a longer version Lyrics Love was like a violin playing soft and low In your heart you held the strings in my heart the bow Together we made soft sweet music together we believed In every day in every hour our love was everything Love was like a summer breeze after pouring rain Blowing all the clouds away bringing sun again Together we made soft sweet music together we believed In every day in every hour our love was everything First dance you were mine first dance we made it Last dance last chance you know I know you were wrong You know you were wrong you know for every feeling there s a song You were like a mountain stream flowing fast and free You were like the autumn leaves blowing from my tree Together we made soft sweet music together we believed In every day in every hour our love was everything After all the leaves had gone you were winter snow You were so cold and far away I had to let you go Together we made soft sweet music together we believed In every day in every hour our love was everything John Lees St Annes Music Friend Of Mine Les s up tempo country influenced number was chosen as the follow up single to Hymn and has perhaps because of the general quality of writing on this album been rather neglected The song can be interpreted as being about the end of a relationship but the lyrics can equally be applied to the band s fans Lyrics When the lights are fading slowly on another show And the crowd has gone the people cease to shout for more You d better run stop from crying all the time Don t you know it s got to end I thought you were a friend of mine Goodbye bright light city heading for the sun Where the southern girls are pretty and there s two for one You d better run stop from crying all the time Don t you know it s got to end I thought you were a friend of mine Les Holroyd St Annes Music Poor Man s Moody Blues Incensed by reviewers constant comparisons of BJH with The Moody Blues John took his revenge by de constructing the Moodies best known hit Nights In White Satin discarding everything but the basic chord structure and building a completely new song out of it Even the title was a quote from a review of BJH in the music press Ironically the song has become one of the most popular in their repertoire and not just amongst Moodies fans Lyrics All the nights that I

    Nice Booga la Rooga Don t Give Me That Jive Get Down Get With It Nights Boogie Lights Get Down Boogie Alright John Lees St Annes Music The Song They Love To Sing This song and Play To The World have a similar theme conjuring up the unique atmosphere and emotion of live concerts by the band Whilst Play To The World has enjoyed a revival in recent years The Song They Love To Sing which is just as good if not better has been rather neglected Lyrics The day begins Riding a rainbow Bow in her hand To drive away The night again Nothing has changed And all around People are waking King of them all Has gone to rest He passed the test Leaving the stage Time goes sailing on Slowly the crowd will appear And into their ears The song they d love to sing forever Tomorrows come Tonight lives on for years The time has come Follow the spotlight Lighting the scene Another world The flags unfurled Into the sky And in the air Music is playing Ingots of gold Fall to the ground Creating sound Into the night Time goes sailing on Into the light disappears And still in the ears The song they d love to sing forever Tomorrows come Tonight lives on for years Under a setting sun Spiriting shadows away Wonderous people run Watch as the band starts to play The song they d love to sing forever Les Holroyd St Annes Music Skin Flicks The title is a slang phrase for pornographic films and the song is a sorry tale of a model whose career as a glamour pin up comes between her and her lover Musically John continued where Poor Man s Moody Blues left off with the coda borrowing a riff from the Moody Blues Question Lyrics Calendar Pin Up Girl Blonde and Bronze Beauty Fair Photographed Cover Girl Unashamed Body Bare There s No Story She s A Country Girl At Heart There s No Glory She s Just In It For The Art Her Part Sun Oiled Skin Shapely Breast Slim and Sleek Without Dress Page Two Girl Page Two World Glamour Girl Look Your Best There s No Story She s A Country Girl At Heart There s No Glory She s Just In It For The Art Her Part Every Day I m Waiting by The Telephone Every Day You Keep Me Hanging On But While You re Away I Think Night and Day About Where You re Gone and How For Long Before Our Love Turns To Stone See You In The Papers and The Magazines But a Photograph s No Good To Me But While You re Away I Think Night and Day About Where You re Gone and How For Long Before Our Love Turns To Stone Saw You For The First Time and My Shutter Froze Cameras Clicked We Kissed and You Were Gone But While You re Away I Think

    let him in Promises leave you with nothing to show Destiny leaves you with nowhere to go Back to the wall Have you seen the light Is your soul worth saving Back to the wall Can you pay the price Then your life is waiting Down by the shore We can help you no more Standing with our back to the wall Is your soul worth saving Have you seen the light Then your life is waiting Can you pay the price Promises leave you with nothing to show Destiny leaves you with nowhere to go Back to the wall Have you seen the light Is your soul worth saving Back to the wall Can you pay the price Then your life is waiting Down by the shore We can help you no more Standing with our back to the wall Les Holroyd St Annes Music Highway For Fools Possibly an early pointer towards John s current dissatisfaction with the music business this no nonsense rocker attacks the diamond love mercenary approach to music making his point with the lyrically punning that kind of rock don t appeal There were several occasions in the 1980s when John seriously considered his position within the band and the immediate post Woolly period seems to have been one such occasion for soul searching Lyrics You got the groove I got to move Cause suddenly something s unreal I got to go Get up and go Cause you ain t the way that I feel I know what I like And it ain t looking at you If I have to believe I believe in myself and nobody else Your kind of love ain t for real I got the wheels I got the deals But suddenly you ain t so cool Great God above it s diamond love But that kind of rock don t appeal I know what I like And it ain t looking at you If I have to believe I believe in myself and nobody else Your kind of love ain t for real I got to change it s feeling strange And strange is a highway for fools If it s diamond love that makes you feel good Then that kind of love I can steal I know what I like And it ain t looking at you If I have to believe I believe in myself and nobody else Your kind of love ain t for real John Lees St Annes Music Echoes And Shadows A beautifully atmospheric work with some evocative mystical lyrics apparently about a love affair although they could equally be interpreted as a reflection on the impermanence of material things The way in which the vocal fades before the rest of the music makes for a very effective ending Lyrics Here lie the towers so tall Strange they tumble and fall Time softly playing the chord Could be lost in the void Do your eyes see it all Gone like the dreams that you made Sad how memory fades Drawn by the mystical sight There s a voice in the night And your eyes see it all Stay with me All I want from you Just stay with me All I want to do Is look in your eyes And sail on through the night Echoes and shadows Drift through tomorrow s Dreams that you follow In the dark Fools are entranced by the dawn But the wise man misses it all He laughs and the pages are torn While the intellect scorns As he clutches the straws Stay with me All I want from you Just stay with me All I want to do Is look in your eyes And sail on through the night Echoes and shadows Drift through tomorow s Dreams that you follow In the dark Les Holroyd St Annes Music Death Of A City This song s genesis dates back to 1968 Although large parts were rewritten for the album version many lines are there in their entirety on the original 1968 demo Several of John s songs from this period share a similar apocalyptic theme of destruction and it s no accident that one of the new lines refers to after the day Lyrics I look down the street but there s no one there In the cold in the dark in the night air I call out for life but my heart feels despair There s no sign of a light in the cold dismal night The lights have all gone the clothes are all torn The people are gone but the victory s won I call out for life but it s after the day Now the people are gone just the city alone Eyes look from the second floor Down to the street below Calm now the wind is slow See posters once on the wall Now washed away in the rain Peeling from buildings tall I ll follow you friends to where life never ends Make our mistakes again as our life lines descend Time is like dust and the dust is like snow As it covers the ruins of the life that you know Trees once green now turned to stone Objects that look like ghosts All of them overgrown Mist all sight and mind is blurred Lie on your back and cry Words uttered never heard I look down the street but there s no one there In the cold in the dark in the night air I call out for life but my heart feels despair There s no sign of a light in the cold dismal night The lights have all gone the clothes are all torn The people are gone but the victory s won I call out for life but it s after the day Now the people are gone just the city alone John Lees St Annes Music I m Like A Train By way of contrast Les pitches in with one of the album s
