Yes Lyrics


Far and away the longest lasting and the most successful of
the 1970s' progressive rock groups, Yes has proved one of
the lingering success stories from that musical genre. The
band, founded in 1968, has overcome a generational shift in
its audience and the departure of its most visible members
at key points in its history to reach the end of the
century as the definitive progressive rock band.

Where rivals such as Emerson, Lake & Palmer withered away
commercially after the mid-'70s, and Genesis and King
Crimson altered their sounds More...

    ------ About the song And You And I performed by Yes

I'm going to see Yes at Tulalip and wanted to refresh myself of the lyrics so I could mouth along. I have a great seat right next to the mixing board.

    ------ About the song Roundabout performed by Yes

Yes is a true believers panoramic view of dualism and metaphoric irony wrapped up in a mercurial journey!

Seriously, I love their music. So try not to make sense of what was never meant to make sense to begin with! Just enjoy the multi-layered multi-faceted aural experience!

    ------ About the song Going For The One performed by Yes

I like your site and love the song love YES. I was at the going for the one show and you've got a couple of wrong words in there. So let me go to my sorces and get back to you in a moment.

Get the idea cross around the track
Underneath the flank of thoroughbred racing chasers.
Getting the feel as a river flows.
Would youlike to go 'n shoot the mountain masses?
And here you stand no taller than the grass sees.
And should you really chase so hard.
The truth of sport plays rings around you.

Going for the one
Going for the one

Get in the way as the tons of water
Racing with you crashing thru the rudder.
Once at the start you can gamble
That you really surely really mean to finish.
After seeing all your sense of fear diminish.
As you treat danger a pure collection.
As you throw away misconceptions.
Going for the one.
Going for the one.
Going for a
Listen in time
Taken so high
To touch to move
Listen to life
Touching touch time
Travel twilight
Taken so high.
Roundabout, sounding out, love you so
Love you so
Love you so

Now the verses I've sang
Don't add much weight to the story in my head
So I'm thinking I should go and write a punch line.
But they're so hard to find
In my cosmic mind
So I think I'll take a look out of the window.
When I think about you
I don't feel low.
N'should I really chase so hard.
The truth of sport plays rings around you.
Going for the one.
Going for the one.
Going for to
Listen in time
Taken so high
To touch to move
Listen to life
Touching touch time
Travel twilight
Taken so high
Taking your time
Turn on to love
Turnstile to one
Tender timing
Rocking rolling
Listen in time
Taken so high
To touch to move
Listen to life
Touching touchtime
Travel twilight
Taken so high
Taking your time
Turn on to love
Turnstile to one
Tender timing
Rocking rolling
Turn on to love
Turnstile to one
Tender timing
Rocking rolling

Moments decide.
Moments delight.
Moments in flight.
Talk about sending love

    ------ About the song Roundabout performed by Yes

... until I realized their lyrics have no meaning and their music is just noise. Except for maybe "mood for a day", they have nothing worth listening to. 'Mountains come out of the sky'- really?!?! they just stand there. bleck. how vomitorious.

Anti-war song | Reviewer: MAS
    ------ About the song I've Seen All Good People performed by Yes

I read some explanations of this song: It is an anti-war statement. It describes the Establishment's (denoted by the "Queen") efforts to pigeon-hole us, by using the media ("news") to get us focused on our own selves. Hence, "Take a straighter, stronger course to the CORNER of our lives"!

Awaken - soaring | Reviewer: Lori
    ------ About the song Awaken performed by Yes

If you are a Yes fan you already know Awaken, considered by many to be the peak of artistic expression by this amazing group. If you are new to Yes, treat yourself to a musical experience that goes beyond 'hearing music'. Be sure you have some good speakers(or headsets), crank the volume and listen with your eyes closed. This is transformational music.

Genius lyrics | Reviewer: Tara Lynn Keebler
    ------ About the song Close To The Edge performed by Yes

Wow............these lyrics are so deep & genius! In my opinion is influenced by the REAL GOD who wanted no one to suffer & did not want earth to be hell for the son of God or any Jesus person who is persecuted for no reason! GOD BLESS YES!

Comment on Yes | Reviewer: Brian Hale
    ------ About the song Close To The Edge performed by Yes

The members of Yes were (in my opinion) all incredibly gifted and talented artists. What they did is not simply rock & roll, it is music of the universe, transgending all musical form. I have been listening to them for over 30 yrs and am still amazed at their artistry and talent. Biased though I may be, I have yet to hear anyone who can compare with this kind of music with the possible exception of Pink Floyd and Tangerine Dream. I thank them all for expanding my mind and showing that truly, imagination is more important than knowledge. Messers Anderson, Bruford,Squire and Howe you all have my respect and love, please keep on keeping on with the magic that you do!!! With great Love and Respect I offer you Peace and Blessings always. Sincerely, Brian Lee Hale

    ------ About the song And You And I performed by Yes

This YES song, along with many of their other classic songs, sounds as fresh today as it did back in the '70s! I mainly listen to Deep House music now, but I'll never forget these songs.

Old Yes-er | Reviewer: Johnny Martinez
    ------ About the song And You And I performed by Yes

This is a long time favorite. Glad I found the lyrics here. Still not sure about the double lyric part in the middle, but I'll try listening with the audio panned to one side to see if this helps.
Totally, one of the coolest songs of all time.
