Mike Oldfield – Moonlight Shadow

Scorrendo l’elenco di brani che compongono la colonna sonora di Vacanze di Natale 1983 ci ho trovato un vero Best Of degli anni ’80, la mitica Moonlight Shadow del britannico Mike Oldfield, pubblicata come singolo nel maggio 1983 ed inclusa nell’album Crises dello stesso anno.

Il testo di Moonlight Shadow

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, I see you in heaven far away
I stay, I pray, I 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.
Star was glowing 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, I see you in heaven far away
I stay, I pray, I see you in heaven one day
Far away on the other side.
Caught in the middle of a hundred and five.
The last time ever she’d seen him
Carried away by a moonlight shadow
The crowd gathered just to leave him
Carried away by a moonlight shadow
Caught in the middle of a hundred and five
Far away on the other side.
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.
Far away on the other side.
