0:01:230:01:25

# Words softly spoken

0:01:270:01:30

0:01:300:01:33

# Standing at the master's side

0:01:350:01:39

0:04:060:04:08

We're going to stay in the Far East now,

0:04:080:04:10

because the Belle Stars are currently in Japan.

0:04:100:04:12

They're also number five in the charts with A Sign of the Times,

0:04:120:04:15

and just watch the lasers in this video.

# As I lie here, thinking of you

0:04:220:04:26

# I realise that nothing is new

0:04:260:04:30

# Lying in my bed, thinking of you

0:04:300:04:35

# I realise nothing is new

0:04:350:04:39

# You say you love me but want success

0:04:390:04:43

# I say you're lying Nothing has changed

0:04:430:04:47

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

Sign Of The Times from the Belle Stars. Here's an old song

0:07:060:07:08

that was made first of all by Bobby Darin and Nat King Cole

0:07:080:07:11

and George Benson. It's called Nature Boy.

0:07:110:07:13

This new version is by Central Line, they're over here, and if

0:07:130:07:16

you want to know what the instrument is, suitably enough it's called...

0:07:160:07:19

a serpent. Central Line!

0:07:190:07:21

# There was a boy

0:07:250:07:27

# A very strange, enchanted boy

0:07:290:07:32

# They say he wandered very far, very far

0:07:340:07:38

# Over land and sea

0:07:380:07:42

# A little shy

0:07:420:07:45

# Sad of eye

0:07:450:07:49

# Very wise

0:07:510:07:53

# Very wise was he

0:07:540:07:56

# And then one day

0:07:580:08:00

# One magic day

0:08:020:08:04

# He passed my way

0:08:040:08:06

# And while we spoke of many things

0:08:060:08:10

# Fools and kings

0:08:100:08:12

# This he said to me

0:08:120:08:15

# The greatest thing you could ever learn

0:08:150:08:21

# Is just to love and be loved in return

0:08:230:08:31
