Nights In White Satin by The Moody Blues

 

It’s difficult to believe that this mysterious and much-loved 7 minute epic was written by a 19-year-old Justin Hayward in Swindon.

 

Nights in white satin, never reaching the end,
Letters I’ve written, never meaning to send.
Beauty I’d always missed with these eyes before.
Just what the truth is, I can’t say anymore.

 ‚Cos I love you, yes I love you, oh how I love you.

 Gazing at people, some hand in hand,
Just what I’m going through they can’t understand.
Some try to tell me, thoughts they cannot defend,
Just what you want to be, you will be in the end.

 And I love you, yes I love you,
Oh how I love you, oh how I love you.

 Nights in white satin, never reaching the end,
Letters I’ve written, never meaning to send.
Beauty I’ve always missed, with these eyes before.
Just what the truth is, I can’t say anymore.

 ‚Cos I love you, yes I love you,
Oh how I love you, oh how I love you.
‚Cos I love you, yes I love you,
Oh how I love you, oh how I love you.

 Breath deep
The gathering gloom
Watch lights fade
From every room
Bedsitter people
Look back and lament
Another day’s useless
penny is spent

 Impassioned lovers
Wrestle as one
Lonely man cries for love
And has none
New mother picks up
And suckles her son
Senior citizens
Wish they were young

 Cold hearted orb
That rules the night
Removes the colours
From our sight
Red is gray and
Yellow white
But we decide
Which is right
And
Which is an Illusion
