The Deep Deep Sound from Taurus II © 1982
(Mike Oldfield)

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 Call Into The Deep Deep Sound

Stormy Weather Turns To Blue
Here's A Song To Take With You

Family Man © 1982
(Oldfield / Fenn / Cross / Reilly / Pert)

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)

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 Make-Up To Protect Herself
She Showed Less Than Pride
She Made It Totally Clear That She Was His For A Price

(Repeat Chorus)

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)

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 Three Times)

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!"

Watch The Skys Dawning On You
Soaring Over Country Land
Message Comes From Katmandu:
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 Light
(Let's Make Another Moment)
(Yeah, Let's Do It Specific)


(Chorus)

Orabidi Orabidida
Orabidi Orabibaba
O-Ra-Bi-Di-Ba-Day

(Repeat Chorus)


Lazing In The Sun, We Glide
(Let's Make Another Moment)
Soon You Come From Watch
(Yeah, Let's Do It Specific)
Touched, You Save Me Just In Time
Storm Is Out To Catch
(Let's Make Another Moment)
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 Katmandu
Calling From Country Air
Message Comes From Katmandu:
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

Still In My Dreams I Will See You
Safe In My Heart I Will Keep You

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!

Climbing Out
Just Hold Your Heading True
Got To Get Your Finest Out

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
Rider In The Blue

Welcome's Waiting

You'll Be Celebrating
When You're Down And Braking

Got To Get Your Finest Out...

Mistake © 1982
(Mike Oldfield)

Vocals: Maggie Reilly / Mike Oldfield

(Chorus)

(It Was A) Mistake
Under The Weather
One Shower's Gonna Turn Into Another
It's A Heartbreak
Under The Weather
Standing Out In The Cold


I Wake, It's Frightening
Rain Hammering On Your Window
I Hate, Sheet Lightning
You Reach For The Telephone

(Repeat Chorus)

I Pray For Blue Skies
Rain Hammering On Your Window
On Your Way You Wonder Why
You Standing On Your Own

(Repeat Chorus)

I Took Him On The Radio
You Never Know How To Say
And The Things Supplited That Could Be On
Your Mind
Just To Manage In A Tragical Way

Get Lost In Dreaming
Rain Hammering On Your Window
Try To Catch The Meaning
You Dancing On Your Own

(Chorus)

I Took Him On The Radio
You Never Know How To Say
And The Things Supplited That Could Be On
Your Mind
Just To Manage In A Tragical Way

Hammering Meaning

Moonlight Shadow © 1983
(Mike Oldfield)

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 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 The 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)

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 Moved 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)

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

(Repeat Chorus Three Times)

The Last Time Ever She'd See Him
Carried Away By A Moonlight Shadow
The Crowd Gather Just Beneath 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
But She Couldn't Find How To Push Through

Look Down From In High Places
Lift Off The Ground
Without A sound, Yeah
We Move Through Open Spaces
The Wind It Pulls
The Sky Gets Close, Yeah

Could We Get Much Higher
Could We Get Much Lighter

Check Altitude
Check Your Heart
This Cloudless Blue
This Starlight Night, Yeah
Shoot Out Into Shining
That Devil Moon, That Devil Moon
He Sings Of Love, Yeah

Can We Get Much Higher
Can We Get Much Lighter
Navigator To Heaven

The Stars So Close We Touch Them
They Seem So Small
They Make Me Wonder

Far Out In Formation
Five Thousand Moons
Floating Balloons

Couldn't Get Much Higher
Couldn't Get Much Lighter
Navigator To Heaven - Heaven - Heaven
