Electric Light Orchestra Shangri-La Lyrics

Last updated: 11/19/2012 01:51:21 PM

Sitting here, waiting for,
Someone calling at my door,
Too bad,
I'm getting out of love.

What's the use of changing things,
Wonder what tomorrow brings,
Who knows,
I'm getting out of love.

CHORUS
My Shangri-la has gone away,
Faded like the Beatles on Hey Jude
She seemed to drift out on the rain
That came in somewhere softly from the blue

Clouds roll by and hide the sun,
Raindrops fall on everyone,
So sad,
I'm getting out of love.

CHORUS -- repeat

CHORUS -- repeat

Long forgotten classic.... | Reviewer: Michael L. | 11/19/12

I downloaded "A New World's Record" today; I had forgotten most of the songs on the album over the years, but after listening to it all morning, one can not help to (re)gain an appreciation for the genius of Jeff Lynn.
The harmonies are incredible and the strings are beautiful (especially with head-phones).
A re-found classic I'll be listening to for a long time to come!
