Did you ever wake at four in the morning?
You ever, did you have a dream in your head?
So determined to hang onto the moment
Letting go, surrender, close the door
I met a girl when I was shallow sleeping
I heard the calling of a new frontier
Facing tomorrow like Deucalion and Pyrrha
Telling the story of pioneers
Love matters most wherever it comes from
We see each other when our eyes are closed
It's not so easy living out of the shadows
It would break my heart if your broke the spell
Heaven is waiting and waiting is hell
I would rather grow old
In the land of my dreams
Without them real-life means
Nothing at all
They said that it couldn't be done
You know you must be out of your mind
But I've finally found that someone
Who'll take a chance and give it a try
So I'll lay right back and fantasies
Getting nowhere, let me be there
I would rather grow old
In the land of my dreams
Without them real-life means

Strange seeing Pete Nicholls singing a Paul Menel song. Brilliant closing solo.

Erik van Os

This song existed before "Are you sitting comfortably" Peter sings the original lyrics. But it changed quite a few times through the years.


Apartir del 8:37 extasis

IQ became one of my fav bands. I love both eras. Personally i think nomzamo and are you sitting are great albums.


Oh my God... Mike's solo 😍😍😍


Never been really fan of the "live ending" of this song, the original one is so much stronger in the way they keep rolling on with that ending melody.
IQ's "Firth of Fifth"

Benoit Vanhees

I have to admit I grew so accustomed to the other IQ vocalist's way of singing it on the studio version, that I actually prefer that version. This is certainly a very nice live performance (as always with IQ btw), but this time, the studio version vocalist gets a 9/10 and the live vocalist an 8.5/10, it all has to do with details, nothing substantial. IQ certainly has one of the most underrated (sorry for the typical Youtube lingo) guitarists, the keyboard parts of Nostalgia / Falling apart are also very fine, maybe not technically super difficult (it's no Wakeman), but very "atmospheric", in the same way as Steve Hackett added so much "atmosphere" to several Genesis songs.

John Sampson

He did a great job!! ;))
