Mike Oldfield
Standing in a new space,
Waving at the sun...
So you probably back in darkness
To where I belong.
Just by being with you
Pictures flow out of my mind...
Have we danced before
Long ago or in another time?
Oldfield quotes
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...
My moon shines so softly
On the hair of my killer
Pours flowers on his head
Help me, give him some shelter!
Come, lie by the river
Rest your head, don't you fear
Sleep softly, my baby
They won't find you here.

Oldfield Mike quotes
Will-power, give me back some to survive,
One more hour and I'm coming alive...
I can see the light!
And there's blue sky breaking
Through the edge of the night...
I can see the light!
Oldfield Mike
Everything on Tubular Bells was done on the first take it was lovely, so spontaneous. I had such a long time to prepare it, and I had just one little chance to do it, and now I listen to it and it has a lovely spontaneous energy. It's got mistakes, and I could easily have cut them out, but I left them on.
Mike Oldfield quotes
I'm a fire without a flame, desert with no rain...
Mike Oldfield
In this world, everything has a pulse or a vibration. This sound is unique to each living or non-living thing and in itself creates a music that no-one can hear. I believe that this has a very powerful resonance with, and a deep effect on, our lives. What would happen if we took this further and applied it to bigger things, more powerful things; like an entire solar system or galaxy say, what would that sound like?
Musica Universalis is the ancient theory that every celestial body, the sun, the moon and the stars, has an inner music. This is a harmonic and mathematical concept derived from the movements of the planets in the solar system. The music created is inaudible to the human ear.
Music of the Spheres is my interpretation of this theory. Every planet and every star; the whole universe has music within it that no-one can hear. This is what it would sound like if it was set free. This is Music of the Spheres. (from the introduction to Music of the Spheres)
Oldfield Mike quotes
I watch the boats go by
As the evening colours of the sand
The rain is bringing tears
From my lover's land
I watch the silver stars
melt in love with the sea
I cry to the wind:
Bring back my lover to me! -
Drifting a dream
On a mystical sea...
A wishful emotion
A drop in the ocean
A hush in the air
You can feel anywhere
In the cool twilight
Of a tropical night...
Oldfield Mike
We can never be closer somehow
For the moment that lasts...
Is this moment now?
Mike Oldfield
You know it's not too late to leave tomorrow,
'cause I know where I'm going...
I am building a bridge to Paradise!

Mike Oldfield quotes
Saved by a bell
Suffer in hell
But you were too blind to tell!
Saved by a bell
Suffer in hell
And you made it through so well!
Mike Oldfield
Harmony is always when I look around me
And your smile I see
I can feel it surrounds me
A miracle I find in your company.
Oldfield quotes
How can you sleep
How can you turn away
Thinking so cheap?
Some day you're gonna pay!
You're keeping secrets
I can see in your eyes:
Can anybody tell me
Why the big disguise?
Oldfield Mike
(Take a wish!)
My wish is...
...To be free,
To be wild,
And to be just
Like a child!
Oldfield Mike quotes
One glance is all that I need;
What I was searching for I've found it...
Mike Oldfield
To 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.
Mike Oldfield quotes
Come, take my hand
And wander in the willow river
Glistening the blue bells
Come, take my flesh
And wander in the sunny corn
That shimmer stills at snowfalls
'Cause I love you lover
I love you, like I love
The Four high Seasons.
Mike Oldfield
The sails are unfurled
And the anchor's away going home...
She heels to the breeze as she gathers her way,
And we're bound to the old country.
Then away, love, away, going home!
We're homeward bound this very day,
And we're bound to the old country...
Oldfield Mike
Feel the Earth move!
Now I'm wrapped
In a sweet love's arms,
Reaching out for you...
