OTHER RECORDINGS

This did not start out as a tribute page to the music of Justin Hayward but he is such a prolific writer and singer that I found quite a bit of it out there. The more obvious "Forever Autumn" was a monster hit in 1978/1979, but Mr. Hayward has done many other things even beyond his 5 solo albums.

I tell you how I cried I tell you I almost died Let me tell you how I cried
Well it's hard to believe what was written in that letter I thought I really understood and knew you But I didn't All my hopes and my dreams have vanished Everything I had And my mind is going crazy
I tell you how I cried I tell you I almost died Let me tell you how I cried Oh, what a fool chosen to love Only in love with you Wasn't so hard to do But now I'm without Tell me how to pull out
So I'm writing to tell you just what my feelings are And just to say a sad goodbye to you 'Cause I want you to know How it feels to have no tomorrow To have nothing at all When the one you love is untrue
I tell you how I cried I tell you I almost died Let me tell you how I cried Cried Let me tell you, baby...

I have never heard of the songwriter "Manston", but I know that Marty Wilde was a songwriter as well as a singer in his own right. I wondered why neither Hayward nor Wilde had written the songs that Hayward first recorded. Hayward may have been a bit young and inexperienced but Wilde could have done this. I have never seen any information about this "Manston" in connection with the Moody Blues.

I did a search for the Manston-Wilde connection, and I came up with another group: Status Quo. This English group has been around for about 35 years like the Moody Blues. I visited their official website, and their fans describe this group as "pure Rock-n-Roll". Much to my surprise, Manston and Wilde are co-songwriters on songs for this group (though they wrote with others, not with each other). I may have to do more research to find out about this strange connection...Strange Times, indeed!!

More news! It appears that Manston is a pseudonym for Marty Wilde!! In a biography for the group The Bystanders , the article indicates that Manston was a pseudonym used.

Summer's gone and winter's here That's how it is with you my dear You're trouble and change your love As though it's just a question of the time it takes His heart to break But now it's yours I've seen it all so many times The formula's the same And mine's the shoulder that you cry on I'm the one you can rely on Who is here To hold you near When love goes wrong Though today's been drowned in sorrow I'll be here with you tomorrow Don't get me wrong I understand The way you feel about a man But he walked out with someone new And that leaves only you To feel the pain But I remain To see you through When you come to me Sometimes you laugh Sometimes you cry You tell me Woman, can't you see The one that loves you looks like me So dry your eyes And realise It's you and me Though today's been drowned in sorrow I'll be here with you tomorrow I'll be here with you tomorrow Yes I will I'll be here with you tomorrow I'll be here with you tomorrow
 

UNFINISHED WORK


FOREVER TO BE ALONE
NEVER RELEASED (See Notes)
Justin Hayward


Monday, the greyness of mourning upon you A part of your life taken from you Just for a while Oh oh oh oh.... Quietly waiting for someone who'll know why The price of an hour of love's so high Oh, I do Whoa-ooh...forever to be alone Where is the Eden that you've dreamed of? How many thoughts have you denied? Then you can say that you are lonely Whoa-oh...forever to be alone You'll know how many times I have wondered Watching my soul drifting under Oh, I do Oh oh oh oh love you only as much as I can do The feeling's too strong now to undo Please, never try Whoa-oh...lover please hurry home. Where is the Eden that you've dreamed of? Try to believe it's all come true Then you can say that you're in love Whoa-oh...
 

This song was never recorded except as a demo tape. In the mid 1970's Mr. Hayward was working on this song (probably to be included on his first solo album, "Songwriter") but the tape was stolen from him before he was finished. As this was the only copy, he did not complete the work. Some of the words were incorporated into "Songwriter Part I" from that album.

Dreaming a daydream When will it all come true? Still the world keeps turning Longing for the truth Letters keep returning Still unopened I have a vision Soon it'll all come true I speak with my emotions Positive they are Though the tears are raining I see sunshine I see sunshine Let it begin to change What have we lost by losing Ohhh let it begin to change Are we lost by losing By cheating, and lying, ohhhh Acres of plenty Far as the eye can see No one growing hungry Voices raised in song Joining in the beauty everlasting Everlasting Let it begin to change What have we lost by losing? Ohhh let it begin to change Are we lost by losing? Let it begin to change It won't be long now Before we can live as one Let it begin to change What have we lost by losing? Ohhh, let it begin to change Are we lost by losing? Let it begin to change What have we lost by losing? Ohhh let it begin to change

OTHER RECORDINGS


DAWN OF A NEW DAY From the Album "The Eye of Wendor" (1978) Album by Mandalaband

Come walk with me one last time Through ages past of man's golden greatness Now all remains is decay Crumbling ruin, heartache and pain Stayed far too long in this place Where no one can be free from grief and sadness What will be is now clear to me There's never need for sorrow And tears lost in anguish The scars of the past will surely heal For destiny calls us across new horizons We'll cast our hopes over the sea In search of a world of richness so beautiful So beautiful, so beautiful Let the waters of life wash all the pain and hardship behind us We'll set sail for the sun With every new day the darkness will fade Freedom awaits with the dawn For tomorrow will find us on our way On our way...





TREGARDOCK From the Album "Poetry in Motion" (1990) Vocals by Justin Hayward

A mist that from the moor arose In sea fog wraps Port Isaac Bay The moan of warning from Trevose Makes grimmer this October day Tregardock Tregardock Tregardock Only the shore and cliffs are clear Gigantic slithering shelves of slate In waiting awfulness appear Like journalism full of hate Whoa oh oh... On the steep path a bramble leaf Stands motionless and wet with dew The grass bends down the bracken's brown The grey-green gorse alone is new Whoa oh oh... Cautious my sliding footsteps go To quarried rock and dripping cave The ocean leaden still below Has hardly strength to lift a wave Tregardock Tregardock Tregardock I watch it crisp into its height And flap exhausted on the beach The long surf menacing and white Hissing as far as it can reach Whoa oh oh... The dunlin do not move Each bird is stationary on the sand As if a spirit in it heard The final end of sea and land Whoa oh oh... And I on my volcano edge Exposed to ridicule and hate Still do not dare to leap the ledge And smash to pieces on the slate Tregardock Tregardock Tregardock A mist that from the moor arose In sea fog wraps Port Isaac Bay The moan of warning from Trevose Makes grimmer this October day Grimmer this October day Grimmer this October day It's grimmer this October day Grimmer this October day





This album features Justin Hayward
and others singing the words of SIR
JOHN BETJEMAN set to music by
MIKE READ.

HEART OF STEEL (1979) B-Side of single "Marie" Justin Hayward

I was lost on the far side of that mountain Did you try to find me? I was left on your doorstep one grey morning Though you never had to buy me Heart of steel can you see or feel? There's a silence hanging on your door Now I know that your face is real I don't need your freedom any more I found out and I saw right through you baby And then turned to leave on you What you want from me darling I can't give you No, it's just not mine to do Heart of steel can you see or feel? There's a silence hanging on your door Now I know that your face is real I don't need your freedom any more But now, for the first time in the story I am waving all my fears goodbye Why, did you never stop to listen To the words that I was saying If you opened up your heart to mine I was lost on the far side of that mountain Did you try to find me? I was left on your doorstep one grey morning Though you never had to buy me Heart of steel can you see or feel? There's a silence hanging on your door Now I know that your face is real I don't need your freedom any more





Although "Marie" was released as a bonus track on the CD of Songwriter, Hayward has stated that "Heart of Steel" will not be re-released.

FOREVER AUTUMN From the album "The War Of The Worlds" (1978) Written by Paul Vigrass, Gary Osborne and Jeff Wayne

The summer sun is fading as the year grows old And darker days are drawing near The winter winds will be much colder Now you're not here I watch the birds fly south across the autumn sky And one by one they disappear. I wish that I was flying with them Now you're not here Like a song through the trees you came to love me Like a leaf on a breeze you blew away... Through autumn's golden gown we used to kick our way You always loved this time of year. Those fallen leaves lie undisturbed now 'Cause you're not here Like a song throught the trees you came to love me Like a leaf on a breeze you blew away... A gentle rain falls softly on my weary eyes As if to hide a lonely tear My life will be forever autumn 'Cause you're not here





Originally released as a single, this
song is now found on several Moody
Blues compilations:

Anthology/The Collection
The Singles
Very Best/Royal Albert Hall


Different versions of the song are found on:
