Moody Blues, The - Meanwhile Lyrics




Just in a simple conversation
You can hear the feeling change
Like a river running down
Down to the sea
And if you need an explanation
I defy you to explain
But something's not the same
And it's bothering me

I think I see where I went wrong
I think I see what's going on
Meanwhile and far away
As the night draws in
He's holding her right now
I can feel it all begin
Meanwhile and far away
When the day is done
I ride away, my friend
Into the setting sun
And the river's running down
Down to the sea

I let love slip right through my fingers
And I watched it drift away
But still I had to say
What was written for me

I thought I'd end up as the hero
Thought the glory would be mine
Very soon I was to find
It wasn't to be

'Cos in this part I've got to play
It doesn't quite turn out that way

Meanwhile and far away
As the night draws in
He's holding her right now
I can feel it (I can feel it) all begin
Meanwhile and far away
When the day is done
I ride away, my friend
Into the setting sun

And the river's running down
Down to the sea

Moody Blues, The Meanwhile Comments
  1. Francisco Neto

    Brilliant. I guess we all are the selected few who know this jewel and apreciate it.

  2. Richard Recchia

    Terrific song, one of my favs. Why this wasn’t released as a single is a mystery. Beautiful song, very underrated. I love the lyrics as well, about the guy seeing the situation as a play and he plays the part of the guy who doesn’t get the girl. Brilliant!

    Too long for the radio schmucks

  4. Kenneth Jeys

    This song is one of the best on the whole album!! It should have been released as a single...

    Francisco Neto

    Funny it didn't hit the charts...

  5. HeartoftheDragonColo

    Just another fabulous Justin Hayward ballad.

  6. Todd Sundell
