Moonlight Shadow (Maggie Reilly/Mike Oldfield)


The last that ever she saw him
Carried away by a moonlight shadow
He passed on worried and warning
Carried away by a moonlight shadow.
Lost in a river last Saturday 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, I see you in heaven far away
I stay, I pray, I 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
Star was glowing in a 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, I see you in heaven far away
I stay, I pray, I 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 but the air was alive
But she couldn’t find how to push through
I stay, I pray, I see you in heaven far away
I stay, I pray, I see you in heaven one day
I stay, I pray, I see you in heaven far away
I stay, I pray, I see you in heaven one day
I stay, I pray, I see you in heaven far away
I stay, I pray, I see you in heaven one day
The last time ever she’d seen him
Carried away by a moonlight shadow
The crowd gathered just to leave him
Carried away by a moonlight shadow
Caught in the middle of a hundred and five
Far away on the other side.
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.
But she couldn’t find how to push through
