Ommadawn II
Mike Oldfield Lyrics

Hey in a way we go
though the grass across the snow
in brown beastie in brown face
I'd rather be with you than flying through space.

I like thunder and I like rain
and open fires and glowing flames
but if the thunder is in my brain
I'd like to be on horseback
Some like the city
some the noise
some main cows
and those toys
We though we all had a choice
I'd rather be on horseback

some find it strange we live
on this small planet
on who knows where
when it strange on flu fear
it's nice to be on horseback

some are sure
and other are told
some bang their heads agaist the rules
it doesn't really matter to them
when you have to be on horseback

in the summer winter
rain or shine
is good to be on horseback

I was lucky enough to meet Mike outside the Guildhall in Portsmouth on his 5 miles out tour. I asked a bouncer for his autograph and he said he will see what he can do. five minutes later, Mike appears so I ask him to sign my album cover with which he said, "can you hold my guitar whilst I sign it for you ?"
I put his guitar around my neck whilst he signed. he then said "thank you for coming to see me" and gave me his plectrum before going back inside.
I was stunned and I was the only person there as it was only around 5 o'clock.......A real gentleman and artist. Thank you mike and if you ever read this, i'm forever grateful that you took the time to say hello to me......

@Coneman3 Went to see Tubular Bells II in the Albert hall, stunning night.


Great story, thank you, it's not often you hear about Mike really opening up to fans back then.

I was there, 1982, on my honeymoon, all the way from South Africa!

This suggests he's spiritually-developed.

This is just so insanely good. No words can discribe how masterful this work of art is!


No true words can say🙏 my first love bought me the album and signed it with her love for me.🙏

In my opinion I think this beats tubular bells hands down .

I cry. I miss my friends. I miss my son. My memories. I feel so lone. I want my youth back. My parents. I miss home. I miss to be happy.
