Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
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 river last 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
Verse 2
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 a 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
Verse 3
I stay
I pray
I see you in heaven far away
Verse 4
I stay
I pray
I see you in heaven far away
Verse 5
Four am in the morning
Carried away by a moonlight shadow
I watched your vision forming
Carried away by a moonlight shadow
Star was light in a 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
Verse 6
I stay
I pray
I see you in heaven far away
Verse 7
I stay
I pray
I see you in heaven far away
Verse 8
Far away on the other side.
Caught in the middle of a hundred and five
The night was heavy but the air was alive
She couldn't find how to push through
Verse 9
Carried away by a moonlight shadow
Carried away by a moonlight shadow
Far away on the other side.
