Islands 1987
(Mike Oldfield)

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

When The Night's On Fire, Oh! Will You Keep The Candlelight Burning?
Hold On To Your Heart's Desire (Night's On Fire)
When You See One Bird Into The Wind, Another One's Turning
And The Two Can Fly Much Higher (Higher)

(Chorus)

We Are Islands, But Never Too Far, We Are Islands
And I Need Your Light Tonight, And I Need Your Light Tonight
We Are Islands, But Never Too Far, We Are Islands
And I Need Your Light Tonight, And I Need Your Light Tonight


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

When The Night's On Fire, Oh! Will You Keep The Candlelight Burning?
Hold On To Your Heart's Desire (Night's On Fire)
When You See One Bird Into The Wind, Another One's Turning
And The Two Can Fly Much Higher  (Higher)

(Repeat -Extended- Chorus Twice)

(Extended Chorus)

We Are Islands But Never To Far, We Are Islands
And I Need Your Hart Tonight, And I Need Your Heart Tonight
We Are Islands But Never To Far, We Are Islands
And I Need Your Hart Tonight, And I Need Your Heart Tonight


We Are Islands But Never To Far, We Are Islands
And I Need Your Hart Tonight, And I Need Your Heart Tonight

Island
And I Need Your Light To Night
We Are Islands
And I Need Your Light To Night
Islands
Ooh I Need Your Light To Night
Island, I Need Your Light To Night
Island
Doo Doo Doo

Flying Start 1987
(Mike Oldfield)

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)

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!
Two Dark Eyes From The Doorway Shine
So You Lost Your Dream In A Bottle Of Wine
I Knew You Had To Do It Your Way, Fine
But There's No-One To Carry The Cross This Time

(Repeat Chorus)

On Dusty Roads And Tracks
Now It's The Time To Turn Back
The Warm Wind Blows Constantly
Riding That Storm Since The Day You Were Born
Is There Somebody In? Now Answer Me!
Two Dark Eyes From The Doorway Shine
So You Lost Your Dream In A Bottle Of Wine
I Knew You Had To Do It Your Way, Fine
But There's No-One To Carry The Cross This Time

(Repeat Chorus)

North Point 1987
(Mike Oldfield)

Vocals: Anita Hegerland

Have You Ever Been To North Point
To Spend Your Time And Pray?
The Prison Walls Are Dark And Cold And Grey
The Writing On The Wall At North Point
Speaks To A Silent Room
They Shut The Bars Down, Leave You To The Gloom

(Chorus)

How Could We Get Any Closer? So High Is The Wire
And The Guards Won't Listen
They Won't Believe Me
And Then It All Came Back
Somewhere Far Above Has A New Day Risen
Way Beyond The Searchlight, Comes Alive


Then On A Bright Day At North Point
The Gate Was Open Wide
They Chanced To Look At What Was Inside
There Were A Million Stars At North Point
And From The Silent Tomb
They Took It To The Heart
And Left For The Moon

(Repeat Chorus)

Have You Ever Been To North Point
To Spend Your Time And Pray?
The Prison Walls Are Dark And Cold And Grey

 

Magic Touch 1987
(Mike Oldfield)

Vocals: Jim Price / us version: Max Bacon

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)

A Thief In The Night, Love Steals You Far Away
A Thief In The Night, Love Takes Your Breath Away
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)

The Time Has Come 1987
(Mike Oldfield)

Vocals: Anita Hegerland

A Thousand Years, They Waited For
Someone Who Would Be True
And Now The Empty Years Have Passed
The Sunlight Shines Anew

Someone Who Knows No Fear
I Feel Him Near
The Child Was Born To Be A King, a King
And The Time Has Come

He Tamed The Wild Wind When He Passed
The Birds And Beasts He Knew
Until He Came To Rest, At Last
The Tall Gates He Passed Through

And Now The Story's Just Begun
A Thousand Years To Stay
We Wake Each Morning With The Sun
To Live Our Dreams Away

And Now The Story's Just Begun
A Thousand Years To Stay
We Wake Each Morning With The Sun
To Live Our Dreams Away

When The Night's On Fire 1987
(Mike Oldfield)

Vocals: Anita Hegerland

I Was Hoping, Could You Be My Inspiration?
Whatever Should Become In The Candlelight
I Was Dreaming, Was It My Imagination?
Tomorrow Never Comes In The Candlelight

When The Night's On Fire
Do You Need Love's Arms To Hold You?
It's A Flame, There Burns No Finer
When You See One Bird
There's Another Watching Over
And The Two Can Fly Much Higher

I Was Listening To The Wind That Walks The Hours
I Never Would Have Heard, In The Candlelight
I Was Hoping, Would You Shelter Me From Showers?
I Believe Every Word In The Candlelight

When The Night's On Fire And You Burn
Like A Flame That's Burning In The Rain
Do You Need Somewhere To Turn?
When You See One Bird
It's The Two That Fly Higher
And A Second In Heaven's Worth A Whole Life's
Trouble And Trial

Holy 1989

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

(Chorus)

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
Holy, To Me, Just One Glance Is Holy
One Touch Of Your Heart, To Me, That's Holy


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 Three Times)

Holy, Holy, One Glance Is Holy
Give Me Just, One Glance Of Your Heart, To Me That's Holy
Ooh Hoo, One Glance Is Holy
One Touch Of Your Heart, To Me , That's Holy

One Touch Of Your Heart, To Me That's Holy

Hostage 1989
(Mike Oldfield)

Vocals: Max Bacon / Nikkie "B" Bentley

You Can't Speak, You Can't Sleep
You Daren't Move, You're Confused
You Never Talk, You Can't Walk
You Can't Feel, You're Not Real

If I Open My Eyes, Just Far Enough
I Can See What You're Doing
Go On, Fight To The End, It's Tough Enough
When You're On The Road To Ruin. Yeah!

(Chorus)

You're A Hostage Of The Heart
Twisted 'Round The Smallest Finger
Two Burning Eyes Are Tearing You Apart
Turn Your Soul Into A Cinder


There's No Rest, You're Possessed
You Can't Leave, You Can't Breathe
The Door Slams, Your Head Hangs
You Blank Stare, You Don't Care

If You Open Your Eyes Just Far Enough
You See The Street Lamps Flicker
Go On, Fight To The End, It's Tough Enough
When You Know The End Is Bitter

(Repeat Chorus)

You're Number's Up, You're Eyes Shut
You're On The Brink, You Can't Think
You Wanna Run, But You're Stunned
You Can't Lie, You Don't Try

If I Open My Eyes, Look Hard Enough
I See The Blue Light Flashes
Go On, Fight To The End, It's Tough Enough
Riding On The Road To Ashes

(Repeat Chorus Twice)

I'm A Hostage Of Your Heart
You Can Twist Me 'Round Your Finger
Your Burning Eyes Are Tearing Me Apart
Turn My Soul Into A Cinder
Boy, Boy, Hostage Of Your Heart
Can You Twist Me 'Round Your Finger?

Far Country 1989
(Mike Oldfield)

Vocals: Mark Williamson

She Takes The Rain
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)

She Takes The Rain

(Repeat Chorus)

In Time, Most Of Us Lose It

See The Light 1989
(Mike Oldfield)

Vocals: Chris Thompson

I Been Waiting At This Frontier
And It Seems Like A Hundred Years
But I Couldn't See Past The Gate
I Couldn't See Past The Hate
Now I'm Coming Back To My Senses
I Can See A Light Past The Fences
Standing At The Borderline
I've Come To The End Of The Line

Will-Power, Give Me Some To Survive
One More Hour And I'm Coming Alive
I Can See The Light

(Chorus)

And There's Blue Sky Breaking
Through The Edge Of The Night
I Can See The Light
Oh, I Can Feel The Light


The Most Precious Thing I Possess
Is Knowing The Answer's Yes
And Soon My Liberty
Will Be Reality
I've Been Given A Second Chance
I Could Open My Arms And Dance
Open That Barricade
No Longer I'm Living Afraid

Will-Power, Give Me Some To Survive
One More Hour And I'm Coming Alive
I Can See The Light

(Repeat Chorus)

Now I Climb The Steps To Freedom
The Open Gates, I Can See Them
Hands That I Once Knew
Beckoning Me Through
As The Sunlight Touch My Face
I Can Feel The Warm Embrace
Arms Surround Me
My Life Has Found Me

Will-Power, Give Me Some To Survive
One More Hour And I'm Coming Alive
I Can See The Light

(Repeat Chorus)

Ooh, I Can See The Light

I Can See The Light
Coming In Bright
I Can Feel The Light
Freedom In Sight
Oh, I Can See The Light
Coming In Bright
I Can Feel The Light

I Can See The Light
It's Coming In Bright
I Can Feel The Light
Freedom In Sight

I Can See The Light
Oh, I Can Feel The Light

I Can See The Light
It's Coming In Bright
