Had problems.
Came here, maybe because life is easy here, maybe because the answer is here.
Will go back and start fresh and make a Flying Start.

Different interpretation / additional:

This is really about Kevin Ayers (and the Whole World):

C-2    made the whole world sing, they had no choice

And to add to this interpretation:

It can be read in a Spanish book about Oldfield's life (?), that Oldfield wrote that song after meeting Kevin Ayers, several years after "The Whole World" split and Tubular Bells. Their meeting took place in Mallorca (an island next to Ibiza), a place of sun, Mediterranean sea, warm wind and wine. And the lyrics seems to talk about their relationship, and the great success of Mike Oldfield with his first album (He had problems due to this success).
