Famous Blues (Rock) Covers


Directly from Victims of the Future, the fourth solo studio album by Gary Moore, 1983.


"Shapes of Things"



Originally a song by The Yardbirds, when it was released as a single on 25 February 1966, it reached number three in the UK and the top-ten in the US and Canada.




"Shapes of things before my eyes,
Just teach me to despise.
Will time make man more wise?
Here, within my lonely frame.
My eyes just hurt my brain.
But will it seem the same?
Come tomorrow, will I be older?
Come tomorrow, maybe a soldier?
Come tomorrow, will I be bolder than today?
Now, the trees are almost green.
But will they still be seen,
When time and tide have been?
Soon, I hope that I will find
Thoughts deep within my mind,
That won't disgrace my kind.
Come tomorrow, will I be older?
Come tomorrow, maybe a soldier?
Come tomorrow, will I be bolder than today?
Shapes of things before my eyes,
Just teach me to despise.
Will time make man more wise?
Yeah.
Yeah."
