Great lyrics from a great song on a great album by a band that was great for its time. Blow up the speakers. 

 
You nailed it. Of a time and era, that still transcends time and era. Just in another voice and expression that  may be lost on some. But  a future time will recognize it for the timeliness, if they don't already now. The beauty of music...

I have the cover in one of those "album frames" on the wall in my living room.
Love Justin Haywood-that voice is so recognizable

This whole album flows. One song into the other. I've still got the vinyl even though I think I wore it out back in '72. Many a smokey evening spent with MB... {#Whistle}

Only thing that sucks about this song is that it's just two and a half minutes long.

I've been thinking about our fortune
And I've decided that we're really not to blame
For the love that's deep inside us now
Is still the same

And the sounds we make together
Is the music to the story in your eyes
It's been shining down upon me now
I realize

Listen to the tide slowly turning
Wash all our heartaches away
We're part of the fire that is burning
And from the ashes we can build another day

But I'm frightened for your children
That the live that we are living is in vain
And the sunshine we've been waiting for
Will turn to rain

Listen to the tide slowly turning
Wash all our heartaches away
We're part of the fire that is burning
And from the ashes we can build another day

But I'm frightened for the children
That the live that we are living is in vain
And the sunshine we've been waiting for
Will turn to rain

When the final line is over
It's certain that the curtain's gonna fall
I can hide inside your sweet sweet love
For ever more

 These guys sound nothing like they did in 1971. Mike Pinder's mellotron has been gone since 1974 and Ray Thomas has retired.

True enough. That's been the curse of online discussion since the heyday of Usenet, and we can all fall prey to it because we only ever read words, we don't see the real person in front of us as we would down the pub, say, so we tend to fill in the blank with our own stereotypes and projections and create a cardboard cut-out of the poster. Over the years I've come to the view that you should only ever say online what you would say face to face, and a good way to follow this guide is to post under your real name. (Not that I'm knocking anonymity, as that's pretty important on the Net for all sorts of reasons, but it's not really needed on a music board. )

I think this is one of their tunes that has stood the test of time - it was mind blowing at the time based on what there was to compare it to , but 40 years later (can you believe it?), in my book - still a pretty darn listenable tune.

Had the opportunity to catch them in concert a few weeks ago in Fort Myers, FL.  Fully expected a full compliment of onstage wheel chairs, oxygen tanks, and other healthcare devices.  Was so glad to see that they still ROCK, with vocals and playing skills still intact.  A great show, from a great, great band.

This album, like many other Moody Blues albums, and Yes, and Pink Floyd, (and probably a whole bunch of others I can't remember) were "whole-album" experiences. Put them on, kick back and enjoy the ride (oh... except for that part where you had to get up and flip the record to hear the other side :) A story, a mood, a theme, and you the listener were led through. I don't have that experience so much any more with albums.
 
Well said. These days it's all about downloading that 2-minute Lada Gaga single for your ipod (and ring-tone). Kinda sad, really.
