Earth Moving 1989
(Mike Oldfield)

Vocals: Nikkie "B" Bentley
Vocals: Max Bacon
(disco/club version)

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?
It 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)

And It Moves Me
Can't You Hear The Voice Calling?
It Feels Like Thunder Rolling

(Repeat Chorus Four Times)

Blue Night 1989
(Mike Oldfield)

Vocals: Maggie Reilly

To The Whole Room, Her Eyes Are Numb
As She Reads From A True Love Story
From The Pages Of A Book, Her Lover Comes
Her Heart Bleeds, It's A True Love Story

Misty Shape In The Window By Her Bed
Dreaming On What She's Read
Hero Takes Her Hand And Leads Her Through
Who Knows What This Night Will Do?

(Chorus)

Only In The Blue Night, He Comes To Her
Only In The Blue Night
That's When The Whole Night Belongs To Her
Only In The Blue Night


I See A Dark Face By The Moon's Glow
As She Reads From A True Love Story
Beckoning Hand Scratching At The Window
Her Heart Bleeds, It's A True Love Story

Misty Path And The Night Is Endless
She Could Be A Queen Or A Desert Princess
Hero Takes Her Hand And Leads Her Through
Who Knows What This Night Will Do?

(Repeat Chorus)

Only In The Blue Night
Only In The Blue Night
That's When The Whole Night Belongs To Her
Only In The Blue Night

She Wants To Break Free
From The Cold Light Of Reality
And As She Drifts Away
I Hear Her Voice Say, "Come Away"

Dark Skin Glistening By The Silver Light
This Is The Hero Come Tonight
And Taking Her Hand, He Leads Her Through
Who Knows What This Night Will Do?

(Repeat Chorus Twice)

Blue, Blue Night
Only In The Blue Night
Blue, Blue Night
Only In The Blue Night

Blue, Blue Night
Only In The Blue Night
Blue, Blue Night
Only In The Blue Night

Africa III from Amarok 1990
(Mike Oldfield)

Vocals: Janet Brown

[Maggie's Speech]

Hello everyone.
I suppose you think that nothing much is happening at the
moment. Ah-ha-ha-ha-ha. Well, that's what I want to talk to
you all about; endings. Now, endings normally happen at the
end. But as we all know, endings are just beginnings. You
know, once these things really get started, it's jolly hard to
stop them again. However, as we have all come this far, I think,
under the circumstances the best solution is that we all just
keep going. Let's keep this going in sight, never an ending.
Let's remember that this world wants fresh beginnings. I feel
here, in this country, and throughout the world, we are crying
out for beginnings, beginnings. We never want to hear this word "endings". I know we all want to sit down. I know you want to
take it easy. Of course we're looking for the good. Of course
we're looking for the fresh start.

Isn't that charming? Do you know, I really feel I could dance.
Ah-ha-ha-ha-ha... (dancing) Ah-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha...
charming... ha-ha-ha... (CRASH!)

Sondela uSomandla sukuma wena obengezela *

Make Make

There's No Way Out, No Way In
To The Hallowed Halls, The Inner Ring
You're Just A Face In The Crowd
You Got No Place When You're Down And Out

Mona Lisa, You Can Stop Searchin'
Don't You Know We're Not Virgin

(Chorus)

We're On The Make Make
We Only Take Take
We're On The Make Make
We Accumulate
We're On The Make Make
Don't Mind, It's Fake Fake
We're On The Make Make
We Make Heartbreak


Make Make

We Build Our Tower On Shifting Sand
You Got No Idea What's Changing Hands
No Chivalry. Who Cares What You Feel?
This Is Not The Place For High Ideals

Mona Lisa, You Can Stop Searching
Don't You Know We're Not Virgin?

(Repeat Chorus)

Mona Lisa, You Can Stop Searching
Don't You Know We're Not Virgin?

We're On The Make, No Sympathy, We're Sacrosanct
We're On The Make, No Charity, No Thanks
We're On The Make Make

No Dream 1991
(Mike Oldfield)

Vocals: Mike Oldfield

An Empty Chair
Is Someone Sitting There?
Footsteps On The Ground
Can You Hear That Sound?
Like A Wild Goose Crying On A Lonely Wind
Whispering Leaves In The Branches That Bend

(Chorus)

This Ain't No Dream, Babe
Alone In The Night
Turn On The Light, This Ain't No Dream
This Is No Dream
You Didn't Read, This Is No Book
Go Take A Look, This Ain't No Dream


A Restless Flame
Someone Calls Your Name
Through The Empty Hall, Casting Shadows On The Wall
In The Sound Of Emptiness
Isolation
Nowhere Left To Run, Now The Time Has Come

(Repeat Chorus)

An Open Door
Glass All On The Floor
Hands Have Turned To White
In The Cold Breeze Of The Night
There's A Face At The Window
Someone Who You Know
Or Who You Used To Be
Could That Somebody Be Me?

Dream Babe
Alone In The Night
Turn On The Light, This Ain't No Dream
This Is No Dream
This Is No Book
Go Take A Look, This Ain't No Dream

Down To The River
Is This All Some Cry For Love?
It's A Cry For Love

In Your Blood?

In The Beginning 1994
(Words from The Book Of Genesis / Music: Mike Oldfield)

Vocals: William Anders

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

And the earth was without form, and void;
and darkness was upon the face of the deep.

And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

And God said,
Let there be light
and there was light.

And God saw the light,
that it was good...

(Extract spoken by Lunar Module Pilot Wiiliam Anders, from the Apollo 8 crew live television broadcast, made when the first manned mission to the moon entered lunar orbit on Christmas Eve, December 24th, 1968)

Man In The Rain 1998
(Mike Oldfield)

Vocals: Cara Dillon

You're The One Who's Nearly Breaking My Heart
Had Your Chance, You Just Threw It All Away
Living In A World That You Could Never Be A Part Of
And There's Time To Walk Away

(Chorus)

You Can't Stay, No You Can't Stay
You're No Loser, There's Still Time To Ride That Train
And You Must Be On Your Way Tonight
Think Anew Right Through, You're A Man In The Rain

What's The Use In Hanging Round These Walls
Lamps Are Burning, But Nobody's At Home
There's A New Day Dawning As A Cold Rain Falls
And Now's The Time To Walk Alone

(Repeat Chorus)

How's It Feel When There's Time To Remember
Branches Bare, Like The Trees In November
Had It All, Threw It All Away
Now's The Time To Walk Away

(Repeat Chorus)

How's It Feel When There's Time To Remember
Branches Bare, Like The Trees In November
How's It Feel When There's Time To Remember
Branches Bare, Like The Trees In November

(Repeat Chorus Twice)
