Moonlight Shadow





Moonlight Shadow
Music and Lyrics by Mike Oldfield

Sung by Maggie Reilly

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 riddle that 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.

[ Chorus ]

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.
Stars roll slowly in a silvery night,
Far away on the other side.
Will you come to terms with me this night,
But she couldn't find how to push through.

[ Repeat Chorus ]

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.
But she couldn't find how to push through.

Esta é, sem qualquer sombra de dúvida, uma das canções que faz parte do meu álbum de preferências... É daquelas canções que me recordo de ouvir em vários momentos da minha vida e, em quase todos, me fez alterar o meu estado de espírito... Sempre para melhor, tem piada.

Sem ser fã do Mike Oldfield, acho que esta é daquelas músicas intemporais e das mais conseguidas da carreira do dito. Fabulosa! Espero que gostem.
