Electric Light Orchestra Xanadu Lyrics

Last updated: 03/16/2006 11:00:00 AM

A place where nobody dared to go, the love that we came to know
They call it Xanadu

And now, open your eyes and see, what we have made is real
We are in Xanadu

A million lights are dancing and there you are, a shooting star
An everlasting world and you're here with me, ETERNALLY

Chorus:
Xanadu, Xanadu, (now we are here) in Xanadu
Xanadu, Xanadu, (now we are here) in Xanadu

Xanadu, your neon lights will shine for you, Xanadu

The love, the echoes of long ago, you needed the world to know
They are in Xanadu

The dream that came through a million years
That lived on through all the tears, it came to Xanadu

A million lights are dancing and there you are, a shooting star
An everlasting world and you're here with me, ETERNALLY chorus

Now that I'm here, now that you're near in Xanadu
Now that I'm here, now that you're near in Xanadu, Xanadu

but what about the chorus | Reviewer: Badger | 5/5/2007

Cool to see the lyrics to Xanadu, (but what is the words to the ELO chorus? could never tell). This song is the epitome of the end of the disco-nightclub era. You-tube the video of the climax of the movie where it appeared, and thrill to the hair (feathered center-parts) the clothes (shoulder pads and tulip skirts for women, skinny ties and suspenders for men)...all with the perky upbeat accompaniment of Xanadu...the dream that came through a million years and lived on through all the tears... I truly think the movie sounded the death knell for the style. For that, I applaud it....but I have to say, the music still makes me happy.
