Electric Light Orchestra – Mandalay lyrics
I traced the footsteps through the multi-colored avenues
That wind their way down to the sea
I see the birds that fly beneath the darkened sky
They are the messengers of dreams

Mandalay, now I know what you try to be
Mandalay, now I wish you were here with me

Pages filled with science fiction
Without fear of contradiction
Walking through the fields of evergreen I see a turn and walk away
And from the east there comes a breeze that flows up high into the blue

Mandalay, now I know what you try to be
Mandalay, now I wish you were here with me

The sound of retribution
In total disillusion, Mandalay

Mandalay, now I know what you try to be
Mandalay, now I wish you were here with me

Amidst the confusion
The only conclusion

Mandalay of the misty eyes
Have gazed into the coming door
The leaves that turn to gold and brown
I've watched them falling to the ground

Mandalay, now I know what you try to be
Mandalay, now I wish you were here with me
