"In Another Land" as written by and Bill Wyman....
In another land where the breeze and the
Trees and flowers were blue
I stood and held your hand.
And the grass grew high and the feathers floated by
I stood and held your hand.
And nobody else's hand will ever do
Nobody else will do
Then I awoke
Was this some kind of joke
Much to my surprise
I opened my eyes.

We walked across the sand and the sea and
The sky and the castles were blue.
I stood and held your hand.
And the spray flew high and the feathers floated by
I stood and held your hand.
And nobody else's hand will ever do
Nobody else will do
Then I awoke
Was this some kind of joke
Much to my surprise
When I opened my eyes.

We heard the trumpets blow and the sky
Turned red when I accidentally said
That I didn't know how I came to be here
Not fast asleep in bed.
I stood and held your hand.
And nobody else's hand will ever do
Nobody else's hand
Then I awoke
Was this some kind of joke
I opened my eyes.
Much to my surprise.

    General Commenta creepy, Middle ageish Twanged out, and altered song. Also Bill's first song with him singing. I like this song, in a strange way....

    General CommentGreat album indeed, sadly underrated. This song is, according to Bill Wyman, about "a guy who wakes in a dream from another dream", or something like that.

    General CommentWyman's only songwriting credit and lead vocal (not counting "Downtown Suzie" on the compilation album "Metamorphoses") on a Stones album. I always thought it was interesting and charming, just as I think that "Satanic Majesties," while far from perfect, was an underrated album; I don't buy into the view that it was just a ripoff of SPLHC. My big question: Wyman was not a big drug user; a moderate user of cannabis and alcohol (and tobacco) but not into stronger or harder stuff; did he experiment with acid when he was writing this?
