Five Miles Out lyrics

The Deep Deep Sound (Taurus II)

Vocals: Maggie Reilly

Hush now baby made a start,
There's a jewel in your heart
And a star that shines for you,
Watching everything you do

Don't you cry though it may seem
You were born into a dream
There's another race to run,
You were not the only one

Standing in the morning sun,
Waiting though it had begun,
May you never run aground
Or fall into the deep, deep sound

Stormy weather turns to blue:
Here's a song to take with you

Family Man

Lyrics: Mike Oldfield
Vocals: Maggie Reilly

She had a sulky smile
She took a standard pose as she presented herself
She had sultry eyes she made it perfectly clear that
She was his for a price

[ Chorus 1 ]

But he said "leave me alone I'm a family man
And my bark is much worse than my bite"
He said "leave me alone I'm a family man
If you push me too far I just might..."

She wore hurt surprise
As she re-checked her makeup to protect herself
She showed less than pride
She made it totally clear that she was his for a price

[ Chorus 2 ]

But he said "leave me alone I'm a family man
And my bark is much worse than my bite"
"Please just leave me alone I'm a family man
If you push me too far I just might..."

She gave him her look
That would have worked on any other man in sight
He could not mistake
She wanted to go back with him and spend the night

[ Repeat Chorus 2 Once ]

 

She turned, tossed her head and then
She started to make her final exit line
She showed real disdain as if explaining again
She could be his for a price

[ Repeat Chorus 1 Four Times ]

Orabidoo

Lyrics: Mike Oldfield, Cross, Fenn, Frye, Maggie Reilly and Pert
Vocals: Mike Oldfield, Cross, Fenn, Frye, Maggie Reilly and Pert

Watch the skys dawning on you,
Soaring over country land
Message comes from Kathmandu:
Sky is blue and clear
Program your outing
Gaze at clouds in this window pane
Where is your wish going?
The wind to control you at night

[ Chorus ]

O
O-ra-bi-bi
O-ra-bi-bi-ba
O-ra-bi-bi
O-ra-bi-ba-ba
O-ra-bi-bi-ba-bi

[ Repeat Chorus Once ]

Lazing in the sun, we glide
Soon you come from watch
Touched, you save me just in time,
Storm is out to catch
Program your chartering
Gaze at clouds in this window pane
Stay patched through onto me
Crawling into trouble, that's plain!

[ Repeat Chorus Twice ]

Watch out! Storms in Kathmandu
Calling from country land
Message comes from Kathmandu:
Sky is blue and clear
Program your outing
Watching now your system for rains
Clouds: forty storeys!

(Don't come in again like that, it isn't funny, And I pay someone else to make the orchestration!)

Oh, island of the soul,
Valleys hushed and white with snow
Ireland's eye...
You'll linger with me 'til the day I die
Oh, how it hurts to go

The waters ebb and flow
The changing seasons come and go
Ireland's eye...
Forever reaching up into the sky,
Oh, how I'll miss you so

The sunlight dancing on your rocky shores,
The moonlight playing upon the water
Your memory will stay with me forever more,
Wherever I may roam

Stay with my dreams, I will see you!
Safe in my heart I will keep you

Five Miles Out

Vocals: Mike Oldfield and Maggie Reilly

What do you do when your falling,
You've got 30 degrees and you're stalling out?
And it's 24 miles to your beacon;
There's a crack in the sky and the warning's out

Don't take that dive again!
Push through that band of rain!

Five miles out,
Just hold your heading true
Got to get your finest out
You're number one, anticipating you

Climbing out
Just hold your heading true
Got to get your finest out
You're number one, anticipating you

Mayday! Mayday! Mayday!
Calling all stations!
This is Golf-Mike-Oscar-Victor-Juliet
IMC CU.NIMB...icing,
In great difficulty, over

The traffic controller is calling,
"Victor-Juliet, your identity
I have you lost in the violent storm!
Communicate or squawk 'Emergency'!"

Don't take that dive again!
Push through that band of rain!

Lost in static, 18,
And the storm is closing in now
Automatic, 18!
(Got to push through!) Trapped in living hell!

Your a prisoner of the dark sky,
The propeller blades are still!
And the evil eye of the hurricane's
Coming in now for the kill

Our hope's with you,
What are you gonna do?
Welcome's waiting, we're anticipating
You'll be celebrating, when you're down and braking

Climbing out
(Climbing, climbing)
Five miles out
(Climbing, climbing)

[ Chorus 1 ]

Five miles out,
Just hold your heading true
Got to get your finest out
(Climbing, climbing)

[ Repeat Chorus 1 Once ]

[ Chorus 2 ]

Climbing out
Just hold your heading true
Got to get your finest out
(Climbing, climbing)

[ Repeat Chorus 1 Once ]

[ Repeat Chorus 2 Twice ]
