Castaway (Lyrics)

Lyrics: Mike Oldfield
Vocals: Luke Spiller

”Childhood memories of fighting in the home and the fear of a child”

Midnight
All alone in the room
Streetlights
Shadows dance in the gloom
Cold as ice
In the dark of the moon
Soft cries
From the silent cocoon

Castaway
Castaway

Dark sounds from the room next door
Heavy fall
I can hear through the wall
Stark light
No answer my call
This fight
There’s no victor at all

One dream
Could it be true?
One hope
To see this through
One heart
Caught on the ropes
One love
Gone up in smoke

So now
I just stand at the cross
Which path?
Should I take it, be lost?
Oh Lord
Can’t you give me a sign?
So peace
Of the heart could be mine
