Songtekst

Why do we never get an answer
When we're knocking at the door
With a thousand million questions
About hate and death and war?

'cause when we stop and look around us
There is nothing that we need.
In a world of persecution that is burning in its greed.

Why do we never get an answer
When we're knocking at the door?
Because the truth is hard to swallow
That's what the war of love is for.

It's not the way that you say it
When you do those things to me.
It's more the way that you mean it
When you tell me what will be.

And when you stop and think about it
You won't believe it's true.
That all the love you've been giving
Has all been meant for you.

I'm looking for someone to change my life.
I'm looking for a miracle in my life.
And if you could see what it's done to me
To lose the love I knew
Could safely lead me through.

Between the silence of the mountains
And the crashing of the sea
There lies a land I once lived in
And she's waiting there for me.

But in the grey of the morning
My mind becomes confused
Between the dead and the sleeping
And the road that I must choose.

I'm looking for someone to change my life.
I'm looking for a miracle in my life.
And if you could see what it's done to me
To lose the love I knew
Could safely lead me to
The land that I once knew.
To learn as we grow old
The secrets of our souls.

It's not the way that you say it
When you do those things to me.
It's more the way you really mean it
When you tell me what will be.

Why do we never get an answer
When we're knocking at the door
With a thousand million questions
About hate and death and war?

When we stop and look around us
There is nothing that we need.
In a world of persecution that is burning in its greed.

Trivia

The Moody Blues wordt gezien als een van de wegbereiders naar het genre progressieve rock. De band is nog steeds actief al ligt de tijd van succesvolle singles en albums al geruime tijd terug. In 1978 stond de groep voor het laatst in de Top 40. In 1975 maakten Justin Hayward & John Lodge een muzikaal uitstapje tijdens een sabbitical leave van de groep. In die tijd neemt hij samen met John Lodge het album "Blue Jays" op, gevolgd door de single "Blue Guitar" en een korte Europese tournee waarbij "Blue Jays" gezien wordt als een surrogaat Moody Blues Ook (ex)leden Ray Thomas en Mike Pinder hebben naast John Lodge en Justin Hayward ook soloplaten gemaakt.
