I seem to recall hearing the orchestral score at the end on an sound clip of an old radio soap opera. Is this true, or am I just imagining things?

Or it could be an unrequited love.

I'm not sure but it seems he's reminiscing about a former love and cannot sleep thinking of her. He writes letters of his feelings but knows the relationship is over and sending the letters won't do any good. That's my take.

Great song but it goes on way too long.

I have not been able to understand what this song is about. Would love it if someone could let me know. Thank you

I love this song so much! But that doesn't mean I'm going to call today's music s**t. Just because you don't like something doesn't mean you have to talk s**t about it

This brings me back to when I was a child, I can remember so clearly my mother listening to this song, over and over ........... Now I understand .....

One of the most powerful songs of all time and of the Boomer Generation! Maybe after hearing this Kids now days wll understand why we consider most of theirmusic C$^&P!

The Moody Blues' music has helped me through many a low point in my life. Their music is a great portal to inner awakening & personal transformati o n . Especially love To Our Children's Childen's Children.... . . .

AS A MASTER ROSICRUCIAN, I HEAR THE MYSTICAL. Just what I'm going through, they can't understand

Where have the years gone? These guys are still performing. Love the Stones, but they seem to tour whenever! Still, glad that the Moodies and the stones are still with us.
