Crystal Ball

Written by Tommy Shaw - STYX

I used to like to walk the straight and narrow line
I used to think that everything was fine
Sometimes I'd 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 it's mind at all
Perhaps I'll 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 I'm going
I don't know where I've been
Tell me, tell me, won't you tell me
And then tell me again
My heart is breaking, my body's aching
And I don't know where to go
Tell me, tell me, won't you tell me
I've just got to know

Crystal ball
There's so many things I need to know
Crystal ball
There's so many things I've got to know
Crystal ball

If you should see me walking
Through your dreams at night
Would you please direct me
Where I ought to be
I've been looking for a crystal ball
To shed the light
To find a future in me...
To find a future in me...

Crystal ball
There's so many things I need to know
Crystal ball
There's so many things I've got to know
Crystal ball

Dear Multibrand

Why the Crystal Ball lyrics...

? lost in thoughts or contemplating a future in politics ?

colson said...

Knowing beforehand what life has in store for us? No surprises any more?

Life would be boring, wouldn't it?

H. Nizam said...

@Berpikir Positif,
You can describe the present condition is like that.

@Blogger Bumi Lasinrang,
I must admit that you are right.

@Engineering Jobs,
Under normal circumstances I would not go to a crystal ball for any advice .... LOL

@Wisata Murah,
Mungkin kondisi saat ini yang serba aneh dan penuh kebohongan memaksa kita untuk bertanya ke Crystal Ball.

@TUKANG CoLoNG,
Kedua dua nya .. ha ha ha

@Bear Wife,
It's one of best song that I like song by one of my favorite bands.
I cannot be a politician because I cannot lie.

@Colson,
Most of the time I would agree with you. But there are times when we would like to a bit about what would happen especially when you are sick and tired of political situation.

STYX, do the band still exist...?

H. Nizam said...

Hi Adetruna,
I am not sure about that, I have heard from them for quite some time.
But their recordings are not hard to find.

Seiri Hanako said...

why must crystal ball if we had allmighty GOD who rules our way of live?

H. Nizam said...

Hi Seiri,
A Crystal Ball in the lyrics is
some sort of a metaphor that implied a condition in which a person is hopeless about the facts around him/her.

mannoy said...

I like this song in a way. thanks for sharing

dee said...

Nice lyric! Wonder i could see future with crystal ball:) Thanks Harry

sawali tuhusetya said...

ini liriknya siapa, mas harry. nuansanya memotivasi diri, reflektif, sekaligus memancarkan optimisme.

H. Nizam said...

@Mannoy,
Yes it is a very nice song.

@Deasy,
Yes the lyrics are very good.
About seeing future through Crystal Ball? I don't know, because the lyrics mentioned Crystal Ball as a metaphor to express a helpless situation.

@Sawali,
Lirik dari lagu karang Tommy Shaw lead gutarist band rock STYX. Lagu2 mereka sebagian besar tentang kehidupan, harapan dll.

Kiwi Riverman's Blogesphere said...

Very good, Harry. But would we really want a crystal ball? Our futures are under our own control. Some would say we are under the control of God - but God steers the ship - the control is our's. We were given free choice!

Race To New Sulotions Mall said...

If a Crystal ball could for see the future. Just maybe it would make us live better. Because we would see the outcome before it took affect.

H. Nizam said...

@Peter,
I agree with what you said about humans should have control of themselves.

@Race to new solutions Mall,
In a way it would be good to know things in advance.
