Moody Blues Evening (Time to Get Away) Lyrics

Last updated: 04/03/2013 02:44:36 PM

Evening has come to pass,
The time of day doesn't last.
Evening, has earned its place today,
I'm tired of working away.

Working, living it brings,
Only way to have those things.
Toiling has bought too many tears,
Turn 'round all those past years.

Evening time to get away.
Evening time to get away.
Evening time to get away.
'Til next day.

Live all you people, you can't see where you're at,
It doesn't really hurt you, so that can't be bad.

Live all you people, you can't see where you're at,
It doesn't really hurt you, so that can't be bad.

Evening time to get away.
Evening time to get away.

Correction to previous review | Reviewer: vincenzo1 | 4/3/13

This is not a Justin Hayward song. Tuesday Afternoon is indeed Justin's but Evening is a John Lodge song - the Moody Blues bassist.
The two songs were merged into one on the album and perhaps that is the source of confusion.

This song is one of the finest written by Justin Hayward.Most people are only familiar with the single version of Forever Afternoon [Tuesday?] This album cut on Days of Future Passed is the definitive Moodies.Very simple melody,lost album
track and very beautiful. One of my faves !
