from Oannes , this beautiful [beyond words] song triggered by his previous post…

Τραγούδι άσχετο με νοσταλγίες της παιδικής ηλικίας, παρόλο που είναι από τα αγαπημένα της δικής μου.
Απλώς θυμήθηκα [λόγω τίτλου, βλ. προηγούμενο post] και ήθελα να ξανακούσω αυτό το αριστούργημα από το ξεκίνημα των Yes.
Ηχογραφήθηκε στα sessions του πρώτου τους άλμπουμ, αλλά πρωτοκυκλοφόρησε στο compilation Yesterdays του 1975.

A song unrelated to childhood nostalgia, even though it’s one of my own childhood favorites.
I just remembered [due to title, see previous post] and I wanted to hear again this early Yes masterpiece.
It was recorded during the sessions of their first album, but first released on the 1975 Yesterdays compilation.

❝ Here are the books
Of Luke
You’ll need them
To open the seed
To see what goes on in the world
You’re in my mind
Catch the wind and hold on tight
To what we’ll find
And hear what goes on in the world
Here is all you see
Everything is made for you
From me
If there’s anything you’d like to say
That could help me in any way
Cause I’ve been waiting for so long for you to come along
Help me on that day
When you’d take over all the things Heaven has made for you
Is there anything you think you should know?
Is there anything before I go?
Dear Father, I’m hungry, I’m cold
Dear Father, feeling terribly old
Dear Father, I don’t think I can see
I’m not feeling good like I think I should
They’re on their own
Needing their face, a place
Hope…. home
To see what goes on in the world
They’re who you need
To show them why they’re wrong
Oh why indeed
We need to go on in the world
Here is all you see
Everything is made for you
From me
If there’s any complication
That you’d like to talk over with me about
Cause I’ve been waiting for so long
For you to come along
We can work it all out
When you take over all the things Heaven has made for you
Is there anything you think you should know
Is there anything before I go
Dear Father, you must be putting me on
Dear Father, cause most of their minds are gone
Dear Father, they will not understand me
I’m not feeling good like I think I should
Dear Father, can I give it a miss
Dear Father, cause I’m not ready for this
Dear Father, I don’t think I can see
I’m not feeling good like I think I should
Dear Father, won’t you leave me alone
Dear Father, won’t you to let me go home
Dear Father, I don’t think I can see
Dear Father, won’t they crucify me
Dear Father, I just couldn’t do that
Dear Father, cause that’s not where it’s at now (hey) ❞

Enjoy!

and
