Yes lyrics - Album: Time and a Word [1970]

No Opportunity Necessary, No Experience Needed

(richie havens)

Step out in the night

When you*re lonely

Listening for the sounds

That your ears don*t hear

I know your cross is heavier

With every step

Every step

But I know a man

And he*d walk miles for you

Stop, you stay where you are

Take a look at yourself

Take a good look at yourself

*can tell your momma

She*d only tell ya

That she told you so

The life you*re leading

She won*t believe

The riches of life

We all know

Dawn turns to day

And the dawning

Daytime, nighttime

And we still can*t see

Why must we wait until the morning light

To wake up and be

Wake up and be

Wake up and be

Step out in the night

When you*re lonely

Listen for the sounds

That your ears don*t hear

I know your cross is heavier

With every step

Every step

But I know a man

Who*d walk miles for you

Stop, you stay where you are

Take a look at yourself

Take a good look at yourself

*can tell your momma

She*d only tell ya

That she told you so

The life you*re leading

She won*t believe

The riches of life

We all know

*can tell your momma

She*d only tell ya

That she told you so

The life you*re leading

She won*t believe

The riches of life

We all know

Then


And in a time that's closer, life will be even bolder then.

Souls will be complicated, life will be consummated then.

Hearts will be brought together soon in our minds forever then.

As long as we see there's only us, who can change it;

Only us to rearrange it at the start of a new kind of day.

And in a time that's closer, life will be even bolder then.

Love is the only answer, hate is the root of cancer then.

Thoughts will be thought together, soon in our minds forever then.

Love is the only answer, hate is the root of cancer then.

Truth is just for the being and there's the sight for seeing then.

Thoughts will be brought together soon in our minds forever then.

As long as we see there's only us, who can change it;

Only us to rearrange it at the start of a new kind of day.

And in a time that's closer, life will be even bolder then.

Love is the only answer, hate is the root of cancer then.

Thoughts will be thought together, soon in our minds forever then.

Everydays


Look at the sad goodbyes

Everydays are killing time

Sun coming up outside

No men are born this time

Saturday's child stays home

Nothing to say so long

Well, well, well,

Another day

Well, well, well,

Another day ...day ...day

Grocery store

Ten bucks

Just making change for plastic cherries

Up in a tree, jaybird

Looking at me, no word

Everyone looks

We can't see

We can't be ignored easily

Well, well, well,

Another day

Well, well, well,

Another day

Soft within the wayward things

Like ecstacy

The sound of trees

Most anything

What a baby sees

Beautiful face, alright

Many a place, outta sight

Old woman there with red shoes

One million balloons, all used

Drive over hills, forget your fear

Getting it out of second gear

Well, well, well,

Another day

Well, well, well,

Another day (repeat)

Sweet Dreams


Sweet dreams can solve the future,

Sweet dreams provide the past.

Sweet things within your makeup;

These things will always last,

These things will make

Sweet dreams of conversation,

Sweet dreams of love affection.

Sweet words within your makeup;

Sweet words of things to

Come on and write your letter,

You know it will be better anyhow.

You're gonna laugh again,

You're gonna smile again,

You're gonna love again.

Sweet dreams are born inside you,

Sweet dreams are born to last.

Sweet thoughts within your makeup;

These thoughts will always last,

These thoughts will always last.

Come on and write your letter,

You know it will be better anyhow.

You're gonna laugh again,

You're gonna smile again,

You're gonna love again.

Sweet dreams can solve the future,

Sweet dreams provide the past.

Sweet dreams can solve the future,

Sweet dreams provide the past.

The Prophet


Long ago a tall man told a tale of yesterday,

Searching for the truth to life and not for just a way.

Finding pleasure from this house his ears, they did obey;

In his life a moment's pleasure, never to delay.

He was lost and in his trust he found a new meaning;

Seeing the things in diff'rent lights his life was redeemed.

Words of peace will fill his mind and change his way of life;

Peaceful meetings with his heart have made him more alive.

Meeting wise old women on the cliffs of life itself;

Asking not for pers'nal meaning, more for just himself.

Soon we'll be as he proclaimed in a new way of living;

Take the things you need in life but remember the giving.

Prophesy within your mind and you will work it out;

Prophesy that some will die but only those who doubt.

Then you'll never worry as somtimes you used to do;

Just remember when you're gone there's someone after you, you.

Clear Days


I once knew a sweet young girl;

Her body was her world of love,

Her laughter was as happiness is.

Of all the times I treasure this.

And on a day we will remember,

On a clear day we will love forever.

I once knew a sweet young dream,

That if life itself were all we had

And who are we to ask for more;

Let's not decide, let's be sure.

And on a day we will remember,

On a clear day we'll all be together,

Together.

Astral Traveller


And in the ruins

Caught in the noose around me,

Glasses tell lies.

Wondering when

To do it again of another

Flying to the sky,

Somewhere flying high.

Astral trav'ller,

Leaving without her,

Wond'ring where lives go;

In and out the valley below.

Once in the air,

We could expect a great respect in being.

(astral trav'ller.)

Memories fly

Over the sky, and oh, the

Sight's worth seeing,

Just believin'.

Astral trav'ller,

Leaving without her,

Wond'ring where lives go;

In and out the valley below.

Time and a Word


(anderson/foster)

In the morning when you rise,

Do you open up your eyes, see what I see?

Do you see the same things ev'ry day?

Do you think of a way to start the day

Getting things in proportion?

Spread the news and help the world go 'round.

Have you heard of a time that will help us get it together again?

Have you heard of the word that will stop us going wrong?

Well, the time is near and the word you'll hear

When you get things in perspective.

Spread the news and help the word go round.

There's a time and the time is now and it's right for me,

It's right for me, and the time is now.

There's a word and the word is love and it's right for me,

It's right for me, and the word is love.

Have you heard of a time that will help get it together again?

Have you heard of the word that will stop us going wrong?

Well, the time is near and the word you'll hear

When you get things in perspective.

Spread the news and help the word go round.

There's a time and the time is now and it's right for me,

It's right for me, and the time is now.

There's a word and the word is love and it's right for me,

It's right for me, and the word is love.

There's a time and the time is now and it's right for me,

It's right for me, and the time is now.

There's a word and the word is love and it's right for me,

It's right for me, and the word is love.
