Bee Gees

The Bee Gees were a musical group founded in 1958. The group's line-up consisted of brothers Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb. The trio were successful for most of their decades of recording music, but they had two distinct periods of exceptional success: as a pop act in the late 1960s/early 1970s, and as prominent performers of the disco music era in the late 1970s. The group sang three-part tight harmonies that were instantly recognisable; Robin's clear vibrato lead was a hallmark of their earlier hits, while Barry's R&B falsetto became their signature sound during the late 1970s and 1980s. The brothers wrote all of their own hits, as well as writing and producing several major hits for other artists. more »

When I was a boy, all the books I read
I followed like a blind man
To heed the words my father said
Those golden summers faded into night, words become a dream
The echoes of my childhood and where the path is winding

May God bless you, keep you safe from harm
I stand by you always
Time and motion
Hands touch, lips find a way to heaven on high

Watch the children play, the child becomes a man
And all the tangled webs we weave
You swear it as you live and breathe
We stay together, death until you part
Winner takes the prize
The future's at your fingertips, right before your eyes

[Chorus:]
No more sorrows
(smoke and mirrors)
No more nights with no end
(I really learned a lot, smoke and mirrors)
I see my tomorrows

And nothing from nothing
And ashes to ashes they say
All the more that you reach out
The more that it runs away

(Smoke and mirrors)

[Chorus:]

No more goodbyes
(That's all I ever got, smoke and mirrors)
No lies, you find your way there
(Show me what she's got, smoke and mirrors)
Heaven on high

May God bless you, keep you from all harm
I stand my you always

Time and motion
(Smoke and mirrors)
Hands touch, lips find a way to
(That's all I ever got, smoke and mirrors)
Heaven on high

No more sorrows
(I really learned a lot, smoke and mirrors)
No more nights with no end
(Show me what she's got, smoke and mirrors)
I rise or I fall

No more goodbyes
(She really makes me hot, smoke and mirrors)
No lies, you find a way there
Heaven on high
