"Gemini Dream" as written by Justin Hayward and John Charles Lodge....
Long time no see
Short time for you and me
So fine, so good
We're on the road
Like you knew we would

First night, so long
A state of mind
What can go wrong
We're here, the time is right
To rock 'n' roll
Right through the night

Make it work out
Make it work
Make it work out
Make it work out
For each other tonight

Stage fright, candle light
You can't let go
Tonight's the night
Came back for you
Glad to see
That you came too

There's a place a Gemini dream
There's no escaping from the love we have seen
So come with me, turn night today
You gonna wake up
You know you gonna wake up in a Gemini dream

Turned round to see
Where we've been
And what we believe
In life, love
Take a chance
See it through
You'll be glad
That you came too

There's a place a Gemini dream
There's no escaping from the love we have seen
So come with me, turn night to day
You gonna wake up
You know you gonna wake up in a Gemini dream

Long time no see
The lights go up
For you and me
We're here
The time is right
To rock 'n' roll
Right through the night

Living it
Believing it
Wanting it
Make it work out
Make it work
Make it work out
Make it work out
For each other tonight

Long time no see
Short time for you and me
So fine so far so good
We're on the road
Like you knew we would

    General CommentWow, you folks are really digging! This song was written after the Moodies began touring again (with Patrick Moraz replacing Mike Pinder), following their breakup in the early '70s. "Gemini dream" refers to the connection between the performer and the audience. "Long time no see, Short time for you and me" refers to their absence from the pop/rock scene; "We're on the road, Like you knew we would" refers to their resumption of touring, like their fans knew they would. "The lights go up for you and me" refers to going on stage. "We're here the time is right, to rock 'n' roll, right through the night" is a clear reference to performing a concert.

    General Commentimaqodoc was correct. This song was, basically, the Moodies celebrating getting back together. At at least that's what they claimed in an interview in the "Legend of a Band" video.

    My InterpretationIt's definitely about their reunion. I read that the title, "Gemini Dream," refers to the band members living two equally pleasurable lives: one as endlessly touring rockers and the other as family men.

    General CommentReally. I think its about sex. Like lines 1-11, I am thinking of it as 2 people seeing each other and making the best of it.

    General CommentReally? I think it's more about that time just before a relationship begins, when there are still so many questions on both sides. It's a bit of a ballad; many of those questions are answered. "we're on the road like you knew we would;" "there's no escaping from the love we have seen". "Take a chance, see it through, you'll be glad that you came too."

    While I suppose some of it could be sexual, I think more of it is romantic. There are more sexual songs the Moodies have done; this one just doesn't seem to fall into that category for me.

    General CommentBlame a conspiracy theory radio show for introducing me to the Moody Blues. This song along with "The Voice" and "I Know You're Out There Somewhere" were on the segues when the show came back from commercials. I don't know what the song is about, It's okay.

    Moody Blues are cool.

    General Commenti saw the moody blues in concert a year or so ago. old men in with graying beards and plump like santa clause but they really put on a show. this song has its particular innuendos but I definitely feel like it's about just going out and having a good time. Sometimes its not JUST about the lyrics. The tempo of the song is upbeat, the music sounds like some exciting thrill ride through a haunted house. Maybe like thriller where you have those nights where you're almost afraid of what may come but you know it's going to be fun, whatever it is.
