Shangri-La

This song is by Electric Light Orchestra and appears on the album A New World Record (1976) and on the box set Flashback (2000).

(I'm getting out)
(I'm getting out)

Sitting here, waiting for
Someone calling at my door
Too bad
I'm getting out of love

What's the use of changing things?
Wonder what tomorrow brings
Who knows?
I'm getting out of love

My Shangri-La has gone away
Fading like The Beatles on "Hey Jude"
She seemed to drift out on the rain
That came in somewhere softly from the blue

(I'm getting out)
(I'm getting out)

Clouds roll by and hide the sun
Raindrops falling on everyone
So sad
I'm getting out of love

My Shangri-La has gone away
Fading like The Beatles on "Hey Jude"
She seemed to drift out on the rain
That came in somewhere softly from the blue

My Shangri-La has gone away
Fading like The Beatles on "Hey Jude" (Do me, baby!)
She seemed to drift out on the rain
That came in somewhere softly from the blue

I'm getting out of love
Where is my Shangri-La?
Where is my Shangri-La?
I'm getting out of love

I will return
(I will return)
I will return to Shangri-La
(I will return)
I will return to Shangri-La
(I will return)
I will return to Shangri-La
