The Legend of Xanadu - Dave Dee Dozy Beaky Mick & Tich/The Fall

The Legend of Xanadu

You'll hear my voice
On the wind cross the sand
If you should return
To that black, barren land
That bears the name of Xanadu

Cursed without hope
Was the love that I sought
Lost from the start
Was the duel that was fought
To win a heart in Xanadu

Now no footsteps leave their traces
Only shadows move in places where we used to go
And the buildings open to the sky
All echo with the vultures cry as if to show
Our love was for a day
And doomed to pass away
In Xanadu
In Xanadu
In Xanadu

(Spoken:)
What was it to you 
That a man lay down his life for your love
Were those clear eyes of yours 
Ever filled with the pain and tears of grief
Did you ever give yourself 
To any one man in this whole wide world
Or did you love me and will you 
Find your way back one day to Xanadu

You'll hear my voice
On the wind cross the sand
If you should return
To that black, barren land
That bears the name of Xanadu

In Xanadu
In Xanadu
In Xanadu
