The Balance * moody blues *



The Balance
Graeme Edge and Ray Thomas











After he had journeyed
And his feet were sore
And he was tired
He came upon an orange grove
And he rested

And he lay in the cool
And while he rested 
He took to himself an orange 
And tasted it
And it was good

And he felt the earth to his spine
And he asked
And he saw the tree above him
And the stars
And the veins in the leaf
And the light
And the balance

And he saw magnificent perfection
Whereon, he thought of himself in balance
And he knew he was

Just open your eyes
And realize 
The way it's always been
Just open your mind
And you will find
The way it's always been
Just open your heart
And that's a start

And he thought of those he angered For he was not a violent man And he thought of those he hurt For he was not a cruel man And he thought of those he frightened For he was not an evil man And he understood... He understood himself Upon this he saw That when he was of anger Or knew hurt Or felt fear It was because he was not understanding And he learned ~~Compassion~~ And with his eye of compassion He saw his enemies like unto himself And he learned ~~Love~~ Then, he was answered
Just open your eyes And realize The way it's always been Just open your mind And you will find The way it's always been Just open your heart And that's a start Just open your eyes And realize The way it's always been Just open your mind And you will find The way it's always been Just open your heart And that's a start
