On Horseback

Lyrics: Mike Oldfield and William Murray
Vocals: Mike Oldfield and The Penrhos Kids

I like beer, and I like cheese
I like the smell of a westerly breeze
But what I like more than all of these
Is to be on horseback

[ Chorus ]

Hey and away we go
Through the grass, across the snow
Big brown beastie, big brown face
I'd rather be with you than flying through space

I like thunder, and I like rain
And open fires, and roaring flames
But if the thunder's in my brain,
I'd like to be on horseback

Some like the city, some the noise
Some make chaos, and others, toys
But if I was to have the choice,
I'd rather be on horseback

[ Repeat Chorus Once ]

Some find it strange to be here,
On this small planet, and who knows where
But when it's strange and full of fear,
It's nice to be on horseback.

Some are short, and others tall,
Some hit their heads against the wall
But it doesn't really matter at all,
When you happen to be on horseback

[ Repeat Chorus Once ]

So if you you feel a little glum,
To Hergest Ridge you should come
In summer, winter, rain or sun,
It's good to be on horseback

[ Repeat Chorus Twice ]

You know, I'd rather be on horseback

The Sailor's Hornpipe

Vocals: Vivian Stanshall

From outside, an ordinary house. A great house, true - four hundred and eighty three rooms, each one with its own marble wash basin and douche, bidet as it may. But inside, and the positions are reversed. A human failing, some say a disease, but a disease that Sir Francis Dashwood knew, and knew it well.

Upstairs, inside and a revelation. It's a discotheque. No, no, uh.. there are paintings, real, and look here - a rare seventeenth century masterpiece, and if I can scrape a little of it off, beneath I can find hidden a fourteenth century underpiece.

Made entirely of tiny pieces of eggshells, this lurid work has caused controversy in the world of embroidery and anthropologicky. No, I'll say it again, anthropolology. Umm.. no quite possibly make an anthropol, no, uh, I mean an apolog..ph.. It has enthralled distinguished professors, and in layman's language is "blinking well baffling".

But to be more obtusely, "buggered if I know." Yes, "buggered if I know." And that's all we've gleaned so far from experts in fourteenth century painting, renaissance, greengrocers, and recently revived members of the public. Buggered if I know.

Vivian Stanshall, about three o'clock in the morning,
Oxfordshire, 1973, Goodnight.

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 ]

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 ]

Moonlight Shadow

Vocals: 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 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

[ Chorus 1 ]

I stay
I pray
See you in heaven far away

[ Chorus 2 ]

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 move slowly in the 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

[ Repeat Chorus 1 Once ]

[ Repeat Chorus 2 Once ]

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

Foreign Affair

Lyrics: Mike Oldfield and Maggie Reilly

[ Chorus 1 ]

Foreign affair
Take a trip in the air
To a tropical beach
An island to reach
A new territory
For an intimate story
Ali goum pa la mere
It's a foreign affair

Drifting and free
On a mystical sea
A wish called emotion
A drop in the ocean
A hush in the air
You can feel anywhere
In the cool twilight
On a tropical night

[ Repeat Chorus 1 Once ]

[ Chorus 2 ]

Floating on air
Foreign affair
A magical potion
A cool locomotion
A dream
A prayer
It's a foreign affair

[ Repeat Chorus 2]

[ Repeat Chorus 1 Six Times]

Foreign

Shadow On The Wall

Vocals: Roger Chapman

[ Chorus 1 ]

Shadow on the wall
Shadow on the wall
Shadow on the wall
Shadow on the wall
Like a shadow on the wall

Treat me like a prisoner
Treat me like a fool
Treat me like a loser
Use me as a tool
Face me till I'm hungry
Push me in the cold
Treat me like a criminal
Just a shadow on the wall

[ Repeat Chorus 1 Once ]

Treat me like I'm evil
Freeze me till I'm cold
Beat me till I'm feeble
Grab me till I'm old
Fry me till I'm tired
Push me till I fall
Treat me like a criminal
Just a shadow on the wall

[ Repeat Chorus 1 Once ]

[ Chorus 2 ]

Shadow on the wall
Shadow on the wall
Like a shadow on the wall

[ Repeat Chorus 2 Three Times ]

Crime Of Passion

Vocals: Barry Palmer

On a bright day she passed away in the morning
It's a cruel way to take her away with no warning
He took her hands through every midnight hour
And then saw her fading away like a spring shower

[ Chorus ]

I can see a complete life's time,
Pictures and posters of times and fashion
Nineteen years with no reason or rhyme
Taken away in a crime of passion

He stood to see if he could catch her breathing
But it was no good, he understood she was leaving
He looked outside the frosty window pane
And then he saw her moving away, Elizabeth Jane

[ Repeat Chorus Once ]

I see freedom in sight, it's a long climb
But she would not give up the fight for a long time,
And I see a light come shining in tonight
Baby, it's all right, we couldn't have changed it with second sight

[ Repeat Chorus Once ]

I see freedom light shining in the night
I see freedom but she wouldn't give up the fight

I see a light go shining in tonight
Baby, it's all right, we couldn't have changed it with second sight

I see a light go shining in tonight
Baby, it's all right, we couldn't have changed it with second sight

To France

Vocals: Maggie Reilly

Taking on water,
Sailing a restless sea
From a memory,
A fantasy

The wind carries
Into wild water,
Far from the islands
Don't you know you're

[ Chorus 1 ]

Never going to get to France
Mary, Queen of Chance, will they find you?
Never going to get to France
Could a new romance ever bind you?

Walking on foreign grounds,
Like a shadow,
Roaming in far off
Territory
Over your shoulder,
Stories unfold, you're
Searching for sanctuary
You know you're

[ Repeat Chorus 1 Once ]

I see a picture
By the lamp's flicker
Isn't it strange how
Dreams fade and shimmer?

[ Repeat Chorus 1 Once ]

I see a picture
By the lamp's flicker
Isn't it strange how
Dreams fade and shimmer?

[ Repeat Chorus 1 Once ]

[ Chorus 2 ]

Never going to get to France
Never going to...

[ Repeat Chorus 2 Twice ]

Islands

Vocals: Bonnie Tyler

Islands, from the first time we saw,
We could wait for this moment, like rocks on the shore
We can never be closer somehow,
For the moment that lasts, is this moment now

[ Chorus 1 ]

When the night's on fire, will you keep the candlelight burning?
Hold on to your heart's desire (When the night's on fire)
When you see one bird into the wind, another one's turning,
And the two can fly much higher

[ Chorus 2 ]

We are islands, but never too far,
We are islands
And I need your light tonight,
And I need your light tonight

[ Repeat Chorus 2 Once ]

Islands, never been to before,
And we climb so high to where the wild birds soar
There's a new path that we found just today,
I was lost in the forest and you showed me the way

[ Repeat Chorus 1 Once ]

[ Repeat Chorus 2 Five Times ]

Flying Start

Vocals: Kevin Ayers

We took a place in the sun to see just what had become
The warm wind blows constantly
Does the answer still blow? Did you find your chateau
In that Mediterranean fantasy?

[ Chorus 1 ]

Flying start Made the Whole World sing, they had no choice
Flying start
Like a shining pearl, they sang in one voice

To where the sun always shines, familiar faces and wines
The warm wind blows constantly
Knock on the door, but the memory's poor
Is there somebody in? Now answer me!

[ Chorus 2 ]

Two dark eyes from the doorway shine
So you lost your dream in a bottle of wine
I knew you had to do it with your way, fine,
But there's none to carry the cross this time

[ Repeat Chorus 1 Once ]

On dusty roads and tracks. Now it's the time to turn back
The warm winds blow constantly
Riding that storm since the day you were born
Is there somebody in? Now answer me!

[ Repeat Chorus 2 Once ]

[ Repeat Chorus 1 Four Times ]

Magic Touch

Vocals: Jim Price (but Max Bacon in the US version)

Once in a lifetime you find that power
To break out and run from the devil's deep clutch. All that you need it's the finest hour, Is to believe in the magic touch

[ Chorus 1 ]

A thief in the night,
Love steals you far away
A thief in the night,
Love takes your breath away

[ Chorus 2 ]

Can't believe it, like no other
Love is a gift and to take you so much,
You need the blue night to discover
Only true lovers have the magic touch

Once in a lifetime, you find that faith,
When you're under the spell and it takes control
Everything 'round you just falls in place,
And all that you touch seems to turn to gold

[ Repeat Chorus 1 Once ]

[ Repeat Chorus 2 Once ]

Magic, magic
Magic, magic, magic, magic

Once in a lifetime, you find that power
So break out and run from the devil's deep clutch
All that you need, it's the finest hour,
Is to believe in the magic touch

It's magic. It's magic
Magic, magic, magic

[ Repeat Chorus 2 Once ]

[ Chorus 3 ]

It's magic. It's magic
It's magic

[ Repeat Chorus 3 Three Times ]

Earth Moving

Lead vocals: Nikki "B" Bentley
Additional vocals: Max Bacon
Background vocals: Keith Murrell, Sonia Jones Morgan, Maggie Ryder, Jackie Challenor, Carl Wayne and Lance Ellington

I hear a voice from paradise,
Looks like a new day dawning
So clear, I just open my eyes
Can't you hear the voice calling?

I feel a rush in the air tonight,
I can feel the Earth moving
Love is a beacon, a guiding light
Can't you feel the Earth moving?

[ Chorus ]

Feel the Earth move,
Now I'm wrapped in a sweet love's arms
Reaching out for you
There's something magic in the air tonight,
I can feel the Earth move

And it moves me
Can't you hear the voice calling?
Looks like a new day dawning

Reach out - it's a leap in the dark,
But there's no danger of falling
Give out, give it straight from the heart
You feel like thunder rolling

I feel a rush in the air tonight,
I can feel the Earth moving
Love is a beacon, a guiding light
Can't you feel the Earth moving?

[ Repeat Chorus Once ]

And it moves me
Can't you hear the voice calling?
It feels like thunder rolling

[ Repeat Chorus Four Times ]

Far Country

Vocals: Mark Williamson

She takes the rain,
And turns it to sun,
And my soul, she fills it
Where once was a desert,
Rivers now run
And my storm, she stills it
She takes the rain

[ Chorus ]

She breathes the air
From a far country
This bond survives
Like a tall, tall tree
I close my eyes
And how far I see... she takes the rain

She gives me hope
When there's nothing but pain
I can't explain it
Two different leaves,
But the branch is the same
Forever, let it be... she takes the rain

[ Repeat Chorus Once ]

She takes the rain

[ Repeat Chorus Once ]

(One glance is) Holy

Lead vocals: Adrian Belew
Background vocals: Phil Spalding

Harmony always, when I look around me
And your smile I see,
I can feel it surround me
A miracle I find in your company

One glance is all that I need
What I was searching for, I've found it

Can you believe it, I'm walking on water
And I'm high off the ground
Must be some mystique that weaves it
I'd never have thought of this power I've found

One glance is all that I need
What I was searching for, I've found it
One look, and now I believe

I could just wrap my whole self around it

[ Chorus ]

Holy, to me, just one glance is holy
One touch of your heart, to me, that's holy

[ Repeat Chorus Once ]

You've seen it, walking on water
Miracles like you never seen before

You've seen it, walking on water
Miracles like you never seen before

[ Repeat Chorus Six Times ]

Heaven's Open

Vocals: Mike Oldfield

This is that morning,
It's waiting for you
The face of destiny
Standing before you

This is zero hour,
now is for you
Can you feel that power
inside of you?

This priceless moment
In your posession
Answers to mysteries
Stand in succession

This is zero hour and
there's no way back
Can you feel that power?
In its arms you're wrapped

All through the night-time
'Til the sun comes in
Now Heaven's open
Just fly right in

Now you stand in that garden,
This is that vision
Out on the world's edge,
It's your baptism

This is zero hour
and your hands are free
Can you feel that power?
It's ecstasy!

All through the night-time,
'Til the sun comes in
Now Heaven's open
Fly right in

Waiting for night-time
'Til the sun comes in
All through the night-time,
Let the blue sky in

Heaven's open,
The sun comes in
Heaven's open
Let that blue sky in!

You know, sun comes in
Now, heaven's open
Fly right in
