The Moody Blues Knights in White Satin is  a thought provoking song.  The final message being in the end we decide which is right, and which is an illusion.Songwriters: JUSTIN HAYWARD

Nights in white satin, never reaching the end,
Letters I’ve written, never meaning to send.
Beauty I’d always missed with these eyes before.
Just what the truth is, I can’t say anymore.
‘Cos I love you, yes I love you, oh how I love you.Gazing at people, some hand in hand,
Just what I’m going through they can’t understand.
Some try to tell me, thoughts they cannot defend,
Just what you want to be, you will be in the end.

And I love you, yes I love you, Oh how I love you, oh how I love you.
Nights in white satin, never reaching the end,
Letters I’ve written, never meaning to send.
Beauty I’ve always missed, with these eyes before.
Just what the truth is, I can’t say anymore.
‘Cos I love you, yes I love you, Oh how I love you, oh how I love you.
‘Cos I love you, yes I love you, Oh how I love you, oh how I love you.

Breath deep
The gathering gloom
Watch lights fade From every room
Bedsitter people Look back and lament
Another day’s useless Energy spent
Impassioned lovers Wrestle as one
Lonely man cries for love And has none
New mother picks up And suckles her son
Senior citizens Wish they were young
Cold hearted orb
That rules the night
Removes the colours From our sight
Red is gray and Yellow white
But we decide Which is right
And Which is an Illusion
