  • Turn around
    Look at what you see
    In her face
    The mirror of your dreams

    Make believe I'm everywhere
    Given in the light
    Written on the pages
    Is the answer to a never ending story

    Reach the stars
    Fly a fantasy
    Dream a dream
    And what you see will be

    Rhymes that keep their secrets
    Will unfold behind the clouds
    And there upon a rainbow
    Is the answer to a never ending story

    Show no fear
    For she may fade away
    In your hand
    The birth of a new day

    Rhymes that keep their secrets
    Will unfold behind the clouds
    And there upon a rainbow
    Is the answer to a never ending story
    Never ending story
    Never ending story
    Never ending story

  • Zan-d Mack from Springfield, MoThe sitar in this song really makes it sound New Agey. Awesome!!
  • Eddie from Ba, ArgentinaOn the back cover of the original UK single release (both 7" and 12"), Beth Anderson is credited in big letters. But neither the German nor the US release make mention of her name. One important thing to mention - the song was composed and produced by Giorgio Moroder, and the lyrics by Keith Forsey.
    The UK and the German 12" releases featured the 12" Mix, with the 7" version and 'Ivory Tower' on the flipside. The US 12" is completely different, featuring the Club Mix and an Instrumental Version (which isn't 'exactly' instrumental, rather a Dub Version with almost full lyrics, just the 2nd verse missing - a great version, by the way).
  • Mike from Santa Barbara, CaI never liked the song "Too Shy," but I always enjoyed this one. And Beth Anderson does great back-up.
  • Nelson from MelbourneGood song, great movie!
  • Patrick from Tallapoosa, GaYes, it was. A short version was played during the opening credits; the full version during the closing credits. I think the movie came out at a fairly appropriate time. The movie was about how a young boy is asked to save a fantasy land in danger of being destroyed by a "Nothing", an unseen force that wipes everything out of existence. I think the major message of this movie is that children are slowly losing their gift of imagination, due to television, video games, and the like.
  • Liz from Massapequa, Nywas this used in the movie "Never Ending Story"?
  • Dave from Cardiff, WalesThe female vocals in the chorus were sung by actress Beth Anderson (who is actually seen in the video for the song more than Limahl!). Some singles creditted the song to 'LIMAHL (featuring Beth Anderson)', although by and large she's not creditted as a performer in her own right officially on this song. Following the acrimonious split from Kajagoogoo, Limahl also had a solo hit with "Only For Love".
