I heard you saying rightly so,
Turn our backs on what we most need to know,
Give in too fast then give in to no,
Once they've got you where they want you,
They don't wanna know.

I could leave or I could stay,
It doesn't make a bit of difference any more anyway,
With each and every circumstance,
I lose knowledge and gain innocence,
You won't find me grieving,
There's no regret in leaving,
When I had to come here,
Like I know I had to come here,
I can see I had to come here,
For my view to be clear,
For my view to be clear.

It's easy to forget how far we've come,
How near I feel to where we first begun,
Pushed it too far,
I won't pull it too slow,
Cos' where this story ends depends on how far we go.

I could leave or I could stay,
It doesn't make a bit of difference any more anyway,
With each and every circumstance,
I lose knowledge and gain innocence,
You won't find me grieving,
There's no regret in leaving,
When I had to come here,
Like I know I had to come here,
Oh I know I had to come here,
For my view to be clear,
You know I see I had to be here,
Oh I know I had to be here,
I can see I had to be here,
For my view is now clear.

So roll on blue skies,
Roll on grey,
Just roll away,
So roll on blue skies,
Roll on grey,
Just roll away,
Come on roll on blue skies,
Come on grey,
Then roll away,
Just roll away,
Just roll away.
Whenever

Whenever I need a friend,
It's you I come round to see again,
You know that I'll always be near,
You're flesh and blood and my memory,
Live on in my memory.

I send you nothing but love,
Just wait an' see,
I send you nothing but love,
Just wait for me,
Wait and see,
Wait and see.

Great words, you know all the right words to say,
You don't always lean in my way,
You don't always mean what you say.

Whenever I need a friend,
It's you I come round to see again,
An' everything that you do,
Is everything I will ask of you,
You could ask me too.

I send you nothing but love,
Just wait an' see,
I send you nothing but love,
Just wait for me,
Wait and see,
Wait and see.

Great words, you know all the right words to say,
You don't have to lean in my way,
We don't have to mean what we say.
