Randy Vanwarmer - Terraform

Randy Vanwarmer who sadly passed away on January 12th 2004 is best known for his 1979 hit "Just When I Needed You Most" While this song wasn't on his Terraform album I added the 1999 Remix of it as a bonus track. As I havent been able to get a CD of the album some songs are vinyl rips & others cd rip. The standout track on the album is Terraform which is a concept piece & his best single piece of work ever.

Terraform lyrics

Where will you go
When all the things you know have gone
When all your anchors rust away
Will you hold on
The mountain where you stand
Will crumble into sand
And you'll be washed away
If you're not falling free

Falling free
I see a rising star
A planet torn apart by darkness
Greed and war
We need to find a place to stand
Someplace with firmer ground
Cause we'll be washed away
If we're not falling free

I've got a ticket for a ship
That sails an empty sea
I asked the stewardess
To save a special place for me
A window seat
Where I can see
The world sink
Far beneath my feet

Uninformed military
Friends and the family wave goodbye
Nobody knew
And few people dreamed
We would reach this high
I stood in line
For best or worse
I had to be one of
The very first to try

I feel the thrust
But only just hear the rockets fire
Nobody speaks
There'll be so many weeks
To be bored and tired
And finally
When the journeys done
Guess where we are
Dare anyone
Not me

I walk down the street
People I see
They all look at me
I'm so 21st century

I'm so 21st century
I'm so 21st century
I'm so 21st century

I wear something flash
People I pass
Come out en masse
Dressed just like me

I'm so 21st century
I'm so 21st century
I'm so 21st century


Prophets have said
We'll all be dead
I'm light years ahead
They wont catch me

I'm so 21st century
I'm so 21st century
I'm so 21st century
I'm so 21st century
I'm so 21st century
I'm so 21st century
I'm so 21st century
I'm so 21st century

I'm so 21st century
I'm so 21st century
I'm so 21st century
I'm so 21st century

Where will you go
When all the things you know have gone
When all your anchors rust away
Will you hold on
The mountain where you stand
Will crumble into sand
And you'll be washed away
If you're not falling free

And finally when the journeys done
Guess where we are
Dare anyone

I'm so 21st century
I'm so 21st century

Randy Vanwarmer - Terraform

Whatever You Decide
I Discovered Love
All We Have Is Tonight
I'm Gonna Prove It
Doesn't Matter Anymore
Down Like A Rock
Terraform ( Falling Free, I've Got A Ticket, 21st Century, Terraform )
Farther Along
