Barry Gibb - Grand Illusion Lyrics




Climb a mountain
Sail an ocean
Go around the world a million times
Here in the valley of the blind the one-eyed man is king
Be a hero
Lead or follow
What you choose to believe is a state-of-mind
But here in the valley of the blind the one-eyed man is king

When it comes down to you
The star you follow
May be gone
When it comes down to you
All the power and the glory
All the fire and the fury
Will not take you far (will not take you long)

It's got to be your own life
Show no night or day
Your face may turn in sorrow
While the others watch
The grand illusion
You may lose your mind
And someone standing with you
While you endure the slings and arrows
And she will be your grand illusion
Your grand illusion
In the moonlight

Be an angel
Fly to heaven
All we need is a little bit of peace of mind
Here in the valley of the blind the one-eyed man is king

But when it comes down to you
The star you follow may be gone
When it comes down to you
All the power and the glory
All the fire and the fury
Will not take you far (will not take you long)

It's got to be your own life
Show no night or day
Your face may turn in sorrow
While the others watch
The grand illusion
You may lose your mind
And someone standing with you
While you endure the slings and arrows
And she will be your grand illusion
Your grand illusion
In the moonlight

When it comes down to you
The star you follow may be gone
When it comes down to you
All the power and the glory
All the fire and the fury
Will not take you far (will not take you long)

It's got to be your own life
Show no night or day
Your face may turn in sorrow
While the others watch
The grand illusion
You may lose your mind
And someone standing with you
While you endure the slings and arrows
And she will be your grand illusion
Your grand illusion
In the moonlight

  11. William Gibson

    His voice is still as powerful as it was in the 60's. I hope God loves him and gives him many more years to delight us.

  12. Donna Scully

    Awesome!

  13. John LaStrada

    Loved The Bee Gees back in the 60's with their Beatle-like originals, ignored them for most of their disco classics but...this by Barry Gibb is excellent. Actually, for an artist over 70, it's incredible.

  14. Gloria Norris

    Still got it in you Barry. Well done and much loved by Redcliffe, Queensland-Australia.. May God Bless You Always..!!

If im correct about that old strategy send me a facebook request and i will enjoy following this from the beginning.

    Climb a mountain

    Sail an ocean

    Go around the world a million times

    Here in the valley of the blind the one-eyed man is king

    Be a hero

    Lead or follow

    What you choose to believe is a state-of-mind

    But here in the valley of the blind the one-eyed man is king



    When it comes down to you

    The star you follow

    May be gone

    When it comes down to you

    All the power and the glory

    All the fire and the fury

    Will not take you far (will not take you long)



    It's got to be your own life

    Show no night or day

    Your face may turn in sorrow

    While the others watch

    The grand illusion

    You may lose your mind

    And someone standing with you

    While you endure the slings and arrows

    And she will be your grand illusion

    Your grand illusion

    In the moonlight



    Be an angel

    All we need is a little bit of peace of mind

    Here in the valley of the blind the one-eyed man is king



    But when it comes down to you

    The star you follow may be gone

    When it comes down to you

    All the fire and the fury

    Will not take you far (will not take you long)
