    I love this song and was surprised they were so spiritual, or opened to it....


    Show me the Way

    Every night I say a prayer in the hope that there's a heaven
    And every day I'm more confused as the saints turn into sinners
    All the heroes and legends I knew as a child have fallen to idols of clay
    And I feel this empty place inside so afraid that I've lost my faith

    Show me the way, show me the way
    Take me tonight to the river
    And wash my illusions away
    Show me the way

    And as I slowly drift to sleep, for a moment dreams are sacred
    I close my eyes and know theres peace in a world so filled with hatred
    That I wake up each morning and turn on the news to find weve so far to go
    And I keep on hoping for a sign, so afraid that I just wont know

    Show me the way, show me the way
    Take me tonight to the mountain
    And take my confusion away

    And if I see a light, should I believe
    Tell me how will I know

    Show me the way, show me the way
    Take me tonight to the river
    And wash my illusions away
    Show me the way, show me the way
    Give me the strength and the courage
    To believe that Ill get there someday
    Show me the way

    Every night I say a prayer
    In the hope that theres a heaven...

    Ah yes, I saw Styx, Cheap Trick and oh gee, I forgot, some other band, maybe REO? Back in the 80's at the Circle Theater. We went to that instead of our Homecoming Dance!


    Good Times.....................

    Written by tommy shaw

    CRYSTAL BALL

    I used to like to walk the straight and narrow line
    I used to think that everything was fine
    Sometimes Id like to sit and gaze for days through sleepless dreams
    All alone and trapped in time
    All alone and trapped in time

    I wonder what tomorrow has in mind for me
    Or am I even in its mind at all
    Perhaps Ill get a chance to look ahead and see
    Soon as I find myself a crystal ball
    Soon as I find myself a crystal ball

    Tell me, tell me where Im going
    I dont know where Ive been
    Tell me, tell me, wont you tell me
    And then tell me again
    My heart is breaking, my bodys aching
    And I dont know where to go
    Tell me, tell me, wont you tell me
    Ive just got to know

    Crystal ball
    Theres so many things I need to know
    Crystal ball
    Theres so many things Ive got to know
    Crystal ball

    [extra verse used occasionally live]
    If you should see me walking
    Through your dreams at night
    Would you please direct me
    Where I ought to be
    Ive been looking for a crystal ball
    To shed the light
    To find a future in me...
    To find a future in me...

    Crystal ball
    Theres so many things I need to know
    Crystal ball
    Theres so many things Ive got to know
    Crystal ball

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uR4if4ble1A]YouTube - Styx - Lady[/ame]
    LADY

    Lady, when youre with me Im smiling
    Give me all your love
    Your hands build me up when Im sinking
    Just touch me and my troubles all fade
    Lady, from the moment I saw you
    Standing all alone
    You gave all the love that I needed
    So shy, like a child who has grown

    Youre my lady of the morning
    Love shines in your eyes
    Sparkling, clear, and lovely
    Youre my lady

    Lady, turns me on when Im lonely
    Show me all your charm
    Evenings when she lays down beside me
    Just take me gently into your arms

    Your my lady of the morning
    Love shines in your eyes
    Sparkling, clear, and lovely
    Youre my lady

    Lady of the morning
    Love shines in your eyes
    Sparkling, clear, and lovely
    Youre my ... lady

    Now Styx... one of my FAVORITE bands that get s a bad rap by critics

    Yes.. starting with Paradise Theatre, DeYoung started getting wayyyyyyy too pretentious.. but there WAS still quality music on there and Kilroy... unfortunately he is still so pretentious that it keeps him from a 4/5 reunion of the band.. .Young and Shaw want to have fun and rock and enjoy playing the oldies (while coming out with an occasional decent new song)

    IMHO if you really want the best of Styx.. you have to go a bit beyond the popular, chart topping songs...

    Snowblind
    Suite Madame Blue (off Equinox, last album before Shaw as they were ridding themselves of the awful Curulewski)
    Sing For The Day
    Nothing Ever Goes As Planned

    This is my favorite Styx song. Back in the 70s, my older sisters used to go to Styx concerts because they were so cheap. They were never really considered a technically proficient band. However, one time I heard them during a sound check (I'm a musician, BTW) and they were playing these incredibly complicated ELP songs verbatim. I was totally blown away. I learned then that Dennis DeYoung was an incredible keyboard player. Who knew? Ever since then, I had a newfound respect for Styx.
