Yes lyrics - Album: Going for the One [1977]

Going for the One

(anderson)

Get the idea cross around the track

Underneath the flank of thoroughbred racing chasers.

Getting the feel as a river flows.

Would youlike to go 'n shoot the mountain masses?

And here you stand no taller than the grass sees.

And should you really chase so hard.

The truth of sport plays rings around you.

Going for the one

Going for the one

Get in the way as the tons of water

Racing with you crashing thru the rudder.

Once at the start you can gamble

That you really surely really mean to finish.

After seeing all your sense of fear diminish.

As you treat danger a pure collection.

As you throw away misconceptions.

Going for the one.

Going for the one.

Going for a

Listen in time

Taken so high

To touch to move

Listen to life

Touching touch time

Travel twilight

Taken so high.

Roundabout, sounding out, love you so

Love you so

Love you so

Now the verses I've sang

Don't add much weight to the story in my head

So I'm thinking I should go and write a punch line.

But they're so hard to find

In my cosmic mind

So I think I'll take a look out of the window.

When I think about you

I don't feel low.

N'should I really chase so hard.

The truth of sport plays rings around you.

Going for the one.

Going for the one.

Going for to

Listen in time

Taken so high

To touch to move

Listen to life

Touching touch time

Travel twilight

Taken so high

Taking your time

Turn on to love

Turnstile to one

Tender timing

Rocking rolling

Listen in time

Taken so high

To touch to move

Listen to life

Touching touchtime

Travel twilight

Taken so high

Taking your time

Turn on to love

Turnstile to one

Tender timing

Rocking rolling

Turn on to love

Turnstile to one

Tender timing

Rocking rolling

Moments decide.

Moments delight.

Moments in flight.

Talk about sending love.

Turn of the Century


Realising a form out of stone.

Set hands moving.

Roan shaped his heart

Thru his working hands.

Work to mold his passion into clay, like the sun.

In his room, his lady

She would dance and sing so completely.

So be still he now cries

I have time, oh let clay transform thee so.

In the deep cold of night

Winter calls, he cries 'don't deny me!'

For his lady, deep her illness.

Time has caught her

And will for all reasons take her.

In the still light of dawn, she dies.

Helpless hands soul revealing.

Like leaves we touch we learn.

We once knew the story.

As winter calls he will starve.

All but to see the stone be life

Now roan, no more tears.

Set to work his strength.

So transformed him

Realising a form out of stone. his work

So absorbed him.

Could she hear him?

Could she see him?

All aglow was his room dazed in this light.

He would touch her

He would hold her.

Laughing as they danced.

Highest colors touching others.

Did her eyes at the turn of the century

Tell me plainly

When we meet, how we'll love, oh let life so transform me.

Like leaves we touched we danced.

We once knew the story.

As autumn called and we both

Remembered all those many years ago.

I'm sure we know.

Was the sign with a touch

As I kiss your fingers.

We walk hands in the sun.

Memories when we're young.

Love lingers so.

Was it sun through the haze

That made all your looks

As warm as moonlight?

As a pearl deep in your eyes,

Tears have flown away,

All the same light.

Did her eyes at the turn of the century

Tell me plainly

When we meet how we'll look

As we smile time will leave me clearly.

Like leaves we touch, we see.

We will know the story.

As autumn calls we'll both remember

All those many years ago.

Parallels


(squire)

When you've tried most everything and nothing's taking you higher.

When you come to realize, you've been playing with fire.

Hear me when I say to you, it's really down to your heart.

It's the beginning of a new love in sight.

You've got the way to make it all happen.

Set it spinning turning roundabout.

Create a new dimension.

When we are winning we can stop and shout

Making love towards perfection.

I've been all around the world and seen so many faces.

Young and old a story told, filling in my spaces.

Now without a trce of doubt I feel it every hour.

It's the beginning of a new love inside.

Could be an ever opening flower.

No hesitation when we're all about

To build a shining tower.

No explanations, need to work it out.

You know we've got the power.

Parallel our sights.

And we will find, that we, we need, to be, where we, belong.

Parallel our heights

Display our rights, and wrongs, and always keep it--strong.

It's the beginning of a new love in sight.

Could be an ever opening flower.

No explanations, need to work it out.

You know we've got the power.

It's the beginning of a new love inside.

You've got the way to make it all happen.

Set it spinning turning roundabout.

Create a new dimension.

When we are winning we can stop and shout

Making love towards perfection.

Wonderous Stories


(anderson)

I awoke this morning

Love laid me down by a river.

Drifting I turned on upstream

Bound for my forgiver.

In the giving of my eyes to see your face.

Sound did silence me

Leaving no trace.

I beg to leave, to hear your wonderous stories.

Beg to hear your wonderous stories.

He spoke of lands not far

Or lands they were in his mind.

Of fusion captured high

Where reason captured his time.

In no time at all he took me to the gate.

In haste I quickly checked the time.

If I was late I had to leave to hear your wonderous stories.

Had to hear your wonderous stories.

Hearing

Hearing

Hearing your wonderous stories.

Hearing your wonderous stories.

It is no lie I can see deeply into the future.

Imagine everything

You're close

And were you there to stand

So cautiously at first and then so high.

As he spoke my spirit climbed into the sky.

I bid it to return

To hear your wonderous stories.

Return to hear your wonderous stories.

Hearing,

Hearing,

Hearing,

Hearing,

Hearing,

Awaken


High vibration go on

To the sun, oh let my heart dreaming

Past a mortal as me.

Where can I be?

Wish the sun to stand still.

Reaching out to touch our own being

Past a mortal as we

Here we can be

We can be here,

Be here now.

Here we can be.

Awaken suns high stream thru awaken

Gentle strong dreams begin here awaken

Mass .)(. mass

Touch star,song,age,less touching

Workings of man

Set to ply out historical life.

Reregaining the flower of the fruit of his tree.

All awakening, all restoring you.

Workings of man, crying out from the fires set aflame.

By his blindness to see that the warmth of his being

Is promised for his seeing, his reaching so clearly.

Workings of man

Driven far from the path.

Rereleased in inhibitions

So that all is left for you

All is left for you

All is left for you

All this left for you now.

Master of things. master of light.

Songs cast alight on you. all pure chance.

Hark thru dark ties. as exists cross divided.

That tunnel us out of sane existence. in all encircling mode.

In challenge as direct. oh closely guided plan.

As eyes see young stars assemble. awaken in our heart.

Master of soul. master of time.

Set to touch. setting sail.

All impenetrable youth. over all of our lands.

Ask away. and as we look.

That thought be contact. forever closer.

With all thats clear. shall we now bid.

Be honest with yourself. farewell, farewell.

Theres no doubt, no doubt.

High vibration go on

To the sun, oh let my heart dreaming

Past a mortal as me.

Where can I be?

Wish the sun to stand still.

Reaching out to touch our own being

Past a mortal as we

Here we can be

We can be here.

Like the time I ran away

And turned around

And you were standing close to me.

Like the time I ran away

And turned around

And you were standing close to me.
