Moonlight Shadow
Mike Oldfield Lyrics


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

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

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
But she couldn't find how to push through

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
See you in heaven far away.

I stay
I pray
See you in heaven one day.

Four am in the morning
Carried away by a moonlight shadow
I watched your vision forming
Carried away by a moonlight shadow.

Stars moves slowly 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
See you in heaven far away.

I stay
I pray
See you in heaven one day

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.

Far away on the other side.
The night was heavy but the air was alive
But she couldn't find how to push through
But she couldn't find how to push through.

How to push through
(How to push through)
(How to push through)
How to push through.

wait... 1983... what... I didn't think it would be that old

I know right. I only heard this from a electronic remake from a nightcore mix (notorious for using older original songs). So I would try to find the original songs out of curiosity.

I think Sailor Moon theme song was influenced by this cause they sound similar.
