(feat. Judy Tzuke)

Shut the gates and sunset
After that you can't get out
You can see the bigger picture
Find out what it's all about
You're open to the skyline
You won't want to go back home
In a garden full of angels
You will never be alone

But oh the road is long
The stones that you are walking on
Have gone

With the moonlight to guide you
Feel the joy of being alive
The day that you stop running
Is the day that you arrive

And the night that you got locked in
Was the time to decide
Stop chasing shadows
Just enjoy the ride

If you close the door to your house
Don't let anybody in
It's a room that's full of nothing
All that underneath your skin
Face against the window
You can't watch it fade to grey
And you'll never catch the fickle wind
If you choose to stay

But oh the road is long
The stones that you are walking on
Have gone

With the moonlight to guide you
Feel the joy of being alive
The day that you stop running
Is the day that you arrive

And the night that you got locked in
Was the time to decide
Stop chasing shadows
Just enjoy the ride

Stop chasing shadows
Just enjoy the ride

Wow, that voice...I had to look to see if it was Christine McVie/Fleetwood Mac!

Wiki tells me it's Judie Tzuke. Nice...smooooooooth...{#Sunny}
 
Wow, I never discerned that similarity before, but you're right - there is a comparison to Christine's voice.  Both beautiful.
One of my constant faves on RP.

Is the day that you arrive .
This is my fav song by this group - probably because the video is particularly great as well.
Some folks like Lescheeba, but I like Morcheeba.
i love the lyrics, and the melody.... Basically the whole song, thanks
The day you stop running is the day that you arrive...

Just enjoy the ride!!! 
Would give Skye and the boys a 20+ rating for this epic track if possible. Brings back fond memories {#Whistle}
This is one that will be stuck inside my head this day. A true earworm.
A slithering groove for sure!

"The world is like a ride at an amusement park, and when you choose to go on it, you think it's real, cause that's how powerful our minds are.

And the ride goes up and down and round and round; it has thrills and chills and it's very brightly colored and it's very loud and it's fun... for a while.

Some people have been on the ride for a long time, and they begin to question: "Is this real, or is this just a ride?" And other people have remembered, and they come back to us, and they say, "Hey - don't worry, don't be afraid - EVER - because... this is just a ride." And we... KILL those people. "Shut him up! We have a lot invested in this ride - SHUT HIM UP! Look at my furrows of worry! Look at my big bank account, and my family! This just HAS to be real!"

It's just a ride.

And we always kill those good guys who try and tell us that, you ever notice that? And let the demons run amok. But it doesn't matter because...

it's just a ride.

And we can change it anytime we want. It's only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings of money. A choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your door, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love, instead, see all of us as one.

Here's what we can do to change the world, right now, to a better ride: Take all that money that we spend on weapons and defense each year and instead spend it feeding and clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would many times over - not one human being excluded - and we could explore space, together, both inner and outer, forever, in peace." - Bill Hicks

 

with great respect, thanks for this alex. timely don't you think?

Exactly.  Amen.  Amplified and quadrupled. 

There is no spoon.

I like Judy Tzuke but it would be interesting to hear Skye Edwards singing it.  For this version a 7 from me - for an imaginary sultry breathless version from Skye - a 9 !
The vocals are by Judie Tzuke
Discovering songs like this is why I am now totall hooked on Rp

As someone who isn't musically inclined, I can perfectly imagine a soft tickling of banjo strings replacing the guitar during what I believe is the bridge of the song. 
Nice voice and chorus fit nicely with right after world in Your eyes by Depeche Mode
stop repeating stop chasing shadows!

Yep.
One of the few songs that could teach you how to live.

Sounds like a good plan, but Skye's not on this song or album.

I thought that sounded like Judie! Still enjoying her first US release "Welcome to the Cruise." Over the top production may sound a little dated, but fans of Renaissance and the like may appreciate it.

Bill's stupendous programming is totally in sync with me this evening (or me with it). This one feels like the climax, Judie Tzuke is magnificent.

This one haunts me every time.

That's quite a gate—apparently for Egyptian Avenue, West Cemetery. But it looks more Babylonian to my ignorant eye. Definitely foreboding. 

And hey, look who's buried there: everyone's favorite Wild and Crazy Guy: 

photo of Karl Max's tombstone, complete with giant bust of his hairy head.


Please, more Judie on RP. 
CLEAR 10!!
Raised it to a "7".  Checked on the DVD but it is only in PAL format, unfortunately for those of here in the People's Democratic Republic of Amurrica.

Definitely adding Highgate Cemetery to next London visit and signing up for the £7 "event" (which includes a glass of wine). Thanks, Fred!

A beautiful song, lyrics are lovely and Judie Tzuke's voice superb.
Feels like "making" looooove....!
Make LOVE not war - comes to my mind, hearing this song!
Judie Tzuke, all of her solo stuff is worth hearing and she is superb live.
Judie, I Love You. x

Lovely song
wonderful song. feel-good and trance-inducing. and of course, judie's voice.

Lots of praise for Morcheeba but this song really hangs on the lovely Judie Tzuke's voice.  Try as we may, we don't seem to be able to get more of Judie's songs onto the playlist, which is a shame.

Try Joan of Arc or Life in a Bottle, off Under the Angels.

Or  Tracks of My Tears, off The Beauty of Hindsight Vol 1, which starts off real gentle and builds soooooo beautifully.

Or For You, or Stay With Me Til Dawn

Bill and Rebecca, spoil us - PLEASE  :-)    {#Daisy}

 

 
What the OP said - Only three other JT tracks in the library.  What a gorgeous voice - MORE please Bill and Rebecca {#Yes}  Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you both and to all RP listeners.  We are truly blessed with your eclectic tastes and choice of music on this wonderful radio station. {#Good-vibes}  {#Sunny}

Given the day and the last couple weeks I've been having, this is maybe the perfect song to just chill out to.  Thanks!
Such a great segue from End Of The Line
I absolutely love Morcheeba. Woman I loved had it on a playlist. Turned out to be a total mental case, and let's not worry about details. The band is great,
What a gift, tonight,, Bill and Rebecca.

Very dreamy, easy to get lost in.  They also recorded a very uptempo version on the same album.  Once you listen to that one, this one seems slow..

This is one of the first songs I heard on RP. I was hooked immediately. Lovely music and alluring voice and worthy philosophy in one package. What's not to like. I immediately grabbed it from iTunes or Amazon or somewhere.

Hmm. Not sure. It sounds a bit on the over-sedated side to me. Then again that might be my medication... {#Yawn}
Such a weary song... it echoes my feelings completely.
This song is like seeing an old friends after too long apart...
Everything fits so well with what I seek in-real-life, music, books, discussions. Intelligence... and no shouting or force trying to insert something into my brain.... Yes, I am tired of this political season... Politics is a game that everything one thinks they -ARE- good at. They refuse to hear any other sounds than their own voice... Nobody is THAT damn good...
Stop chasing shadows....

Skye is back with the boys.

And I must say I'd marry Skye for her voice alone...egad, she settles right into my spine and just makes me very happy and relaxed.

Also, this is damned good singing too. Just ain't Skye.

Bought this week :)
Digging the mix this afternoon.  Thanks

Not bad, but I like the 2000's Morcheeba.

It's a groovy tune.  The video for it is pretty cool as well, and it does feature animated characters going through a cemetery.

I wonder if this is about Highgate Cemetery in London? That comes to mind as I recently read Audrey Niffenegger's book Her Fearful Symmetry which is mostly set in and around the cemetery, which sounds like a fascinating and eerie place. Plainly the song's about enjoying life in the midst of death, and the reference to gates closing and being locked in and statues makes me think of graveyards. This is a fantastic song - an easy 9 from the Nottingham jury.

However, this is the greatest departure I have heard from Morcheeba. Upon first listen, I thought it was Katell Keineg, which is not a mainstream sound, but very different. Think Trigger Hippie . . .
