moonlight shadow lyrics – mike oldfield

the last time ever she saw him
carried away by a moonlight shadow
he p*ssed on worried and warning
carried away by a moonlight shadow.
lost in a riddle that sat*rday night
far away on the other side.
he was caught in the middle of a desperate fight
and she couldn’t find how to push through

the trees that whisper in the evening
carried away by a moonlight shadow
sing a song of sorrow and grieving
carried away by a moonlight shadow
all she saw was a silhouette of a gun
far away on the other side.
he was shot six times by a man on the run
and she couldn’t find how to push through

i stay, i pray
see you in heaven far away…
i stay, i pray
see you in heaven one day.

four a.m. in the morning
carried away by a moonlight shadow
i watched your vision forming
carried away by a moonlight shadow
a star was glowing in the silvery night
far away on the other side
will you come to talk to me this night
but she couldn’t find how to push through

i stay, i pray
see you in heaven far away…
i stay, i pray
see you in heaven one day.

far away on the other side.
caught in the middle of a hundred and five
the night was heavy and the air was alive
but she couldn’t find how to push through
carried away by a moonlight shadow
carried away by a moonlight shadow
far away on the other side.
