"Shapes of Things" as written by and Paul/mc Carty Samwell-smith....
Shapes of things before my eyes,
Just teach me to despise.
Will time make men more wise?
Here within my lonely frame,
my eyes just heard my brain.
But will it seem the same?

(Come Tomorrow) Will I be older?
(Come Tomorrow) May be a soldier.
(Come Tomorrow) May I be bolder than today?

Now the trees are almost green.
But will they still be seen?
When time and tide have been.
Fall into your passing hands.
Please don't destroy these lands.
Don't make them desert sands.

Chorus, Lead.

Soon I hope that I will find,
Thoughts deep within my mind.
That won't displace my kind.

    General CommentIt's amazing! I'm the first person to comment of Jeff Beck. I was the first on this site to make myself a fan of him. Jeff Beck is a great artist, great guitarest. It's amazing that true talent is so underappeciated, while all the crap they call "music" out today is the most popular stuff. It's a shame for true rock and roll.

    General CommentI like this version of the song, but I like the Yardbirds' version more...still Truth is one of my favorite albums of all time so that's gotta count for something. It also includes my favorite work by Rod Stewart, but Jeff Beck is where it's at. Amazing guitarist...

    General Comment...True-that, up there. He is the most unpopular, under-rated guitar ICON in the business, (& Eric Johnson...maybe even Steve Morse?).
