YES



Last night I spent hours viewing some (a lot) of Youtube videos of the
60s Prog Rock band,' YES.'


Here are lyrics of the song that's currently at the top of my songlist!


I. cord of life
(anderson/bruford/howe/squire)



And You and I



A man conceived a moments answers to the dream,
Staying the flowers daily, sensing all the themes.
As a foundation left to create the spiral aim,
A movement regained and regarded both the same,
All complete in the sight of seeds of life with you.

Changed only for a sight of sound, the space agreed.
Between the picture of time behind the face of need,
Coming quickly to terms of all expression laid,
Emotion revealed as the ocean maid,
All complete in the sight of seeds of life with you.
Oh.

Turn round tailor, coins and
Assaulting all the mornings of the crosses
Interest shown, never know
Presenting one another to the cord, their fruitless worth;
All left dying, rediscovered cords are broken,
Of the door that turned round, locked inside
To close the cover, the mother earth.
All the interest shown, they wont
To turn one another, to the sign hide, hold, they wont
At the time tell you, watching the world,
To float your climb. watching all of the world,
Watching us go by.

And you and I climb over the sea to the valley,
And you and I reached out for reasons to call.

Ii. eclipse
(anderson/bruford/squire)

Coming quickly to terms of all expression laid,
Emotion revealed as the ocean maid,
As a movement regained and regarded both the same,
All complete in the side of seeds of life with you.

Iii. the preacher the teacher
(anderson/bruford/howe/squire)

Sad preacher nailed upon the coloured door of time;
Insane teacher be there reminded of the rhyme.
There'll be no mutant enemy we shall certify;
Political ends, as sad remains, will die.
Reach out as forward tastes begin to enter you.
Ooh, ooh.

I listened hard but could not see
Life tempo change out and inside me.
The preacher trained in all to lose his name;
The teacher travels, asking to be shown the same.
In the end, well agree, well accept, well immortalise
That the truth of the man maturing in his eyes,
All complete in the sight of seeds of life with you.

Coming quickly to terms of all expression laid,
As a moment regained and regarded both the same,
Emotion revealed as the ocean maid,
A clearer future, morning, evening, nights with you.

Iv. apocalypse (anderson/bruford/howe/squire)

And you and I climb, crossing the shapes of the morning.
And you and I reach over the sun for the river.
And you and I climb, clearer, towards the movement.
And you and I called over valleys of endless seas.

I became interested in this and other Progressive Rock bands of the late 60s-early 70s - through a friend/some friends of a music forum I joined about 6 years ago! It has been an extraordinary adventure, getting into
a lot of music that I, otherwise, wouldn't have been inclined to check out!

Ha! You might even say I have become obsessed with my music explorations... but, not really!
Just trying to catch up! ;)

~~

By the way, I've been told that YES lyrics are not always easily understood... and after listening to and reading these lyrics-that statement is 'understandable!' haha !

Nonetheless, I find this music exhilarating to listen to ~ but not songs you'll find yourself singing in the shower!


Enjoy!

Donna,

Have to say I like a lot more different music than I once did>

Like you, Springsteen has never been a favorite of mine.

Had a great Sunday-Hope you did too.
