"Moonlight Shadow" as written by and Mike Oldfield....
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 the riddle 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

I stay, I pray, I see you in heaven far away
I stay, I pray, I see you in heaven one day

The trees that whisper in the evening, carried away by moonlight shadow
Sing the 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

I stay, I pray, I see you in heaven far away
I stay, I pray, I see you in heaven one day

Four a.m. in the morning, carried away by a moonlight shadow
I watched your vision forming, carried away by a moonlight shadow
Star was glowin' 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

I stay, I pray, I see you in heaven far away
I stay, I pray, I see you in heaven one day

    General CommentIts kind of obvious about what this song is about.

    Its like story..

    A couple walking late at night

    They get jumped, the guy and the boyfriend fight. She stands back watching not being able to do anything. The guy pulls out a gun and shoots him.

    General Commentthey didn't 'get jumped', he inadvertantly got caught in someone else's fight, and she probably wasn't even close enough to do anything, considering all she saw was the gun from "far away"...
