Age of Loneliness (Carly's Song)
The Cross of Changes
This song was written for the movie Sliver starring Sharon Stone, William Baldwin, Tom Berenger, and Martin Landau. It was the first original soundtrack work that Michael Cretu had done, although the music of Enigma has been used in other projects both before and after Sliver. On the film's soundtrack the song is titled
Carly's Loneliness after the main character. Sandra lays voice to the whispered lyrics throughout and the dominant female chant is Mongolian. It is somewhat different versions of the song that appear in the film and on the album.
Age of Loneliness was released as a single and a music video was filmed in New York City. It is shot entirely with sepia color which gives it an interesting feel.
Carly don't be sad, life is crazy, life is mad, don't be afraid. Carly don't be sad, that's your destiny, the only chance, take it, take it in your hands. Carly don't be sad... Life is crazy, life is mad...
