Moody Blues, The - Nervous Lyrics




Why I am so nervous
Please explain to me
Why I can't sleep
I close my eyes to shelter
In the dark I try to hide
If you leave me on my own
I'm worried I could lose my way

In my mind confusion
I see you everywhere
But we don't speak
I try so hard to touch you
But you're always out of reach
If you walked right by
Would I see in it your eye
Would you turn away

Seems to me
I've been a long time
On this road
Has there been a sign
Another way
And I've passed it by
I don't know what it is that drives me on
Gotta keep movin'
Gotta keep movin' on

Bring it on home
Let's bring it on home - your love
Bring it on home
Let's bring it on home your love
Bring it on home
Let's bring it on home your love
Down parallel lines
Don't question faith
Don't answer lies

Tell me why I'm nervous
Please explain to me
Why I can't sleep
Please explain to me
Why you're always out of reach
If the water ran dry
Would I see it in your eye
Would you walk away

It seems to me I've been a long time on this road
And I wonder why
Has there been a sign that points another way
And I've passed it by
I don't know what it is that drives me on
Gotta keep movin'
Gotta keep movin' on

Bring it on home
(straight lines before my eyes)
Let's bring it on home your love
Bring it on home
(straight lines before my eyes)
Let's bring it on home your love
Bring it on home
(straight lines before my eyes)
Let's bring it on home your love
Down parallel lines
Don't question faith

Don't answer lies
You know you gotta keep movin'
Bring it on home
(straight lines before my eyes)
Let's bring it on home your love
Bring it on home
(straight lines before my eyes)
Let's bring it on home your love

Moody Blues, The Nervous Comments
  1. Alwan Tamalus

    Best song of John lodge and certainly one of the best of the MB with "Candle of life" and "New horizon"

  2. hetty bosch

    Klasse.

  3. Busy Bee

    Love this song, especially the last minute or so, and that high note at time 04:47. Listen to this song with good quality headphones/earbuds to fully appreciate John Lodge's voice and falsetto notes. Bliss to my ears! Luvnpeace, Deb (moodygirl67/berrygirl64) 7/11/19

    Matt Dwyer

    I like that

  4. Denis Morissette

    Best song of 1981.

  5. Kevin's Rock Reviews

    Sounds like ELO's I'm steppin' out.

    Phil mole

    I was noticing that - the Moodies and ELO had kind of converged on a very similar sound around this time.

    Kevin's Rock Reviews

    @Phil mole Yes. Maybe Lynne had later his "revenge" making 4 little diamonds which sounds like Moodies' Gemini Dream.

    Alwan Tamalus

    @Kevin's Rock Reviews it's du to Pip Williams,

  6. Mario Vasquez

    Moody Blues, best ever song!
