Song Lyric Sunday 7/2/17 – Kyrie

A song about freedom eh? Well, that’s a tough one for sure, but I most enjoy the Song Lyric Sunday prompts that force me to think a bit. I know freedom means different things to different people, and to me I don’t associate politics with freedom so I couldn’t go that direction (a highly political post on that topic to come Tuesday!) so I went in a direction that I personally associate with freedom.

I feel most free when I’m traveling, be it just a road trip cruising in my little car or a trip for a purpose (such as going to the races or going on a ringing weekend). As such, I picked a song that I associate with travel and how I personally experience freedom.

As such, my choice for this prompt is Kyrie by Mr. Mister (written by Richard Page, Steve George and John Lang):

Kýrie, eléison
Kýrie, eléison
Kýrie

The wind blows hard against this mountainside
Across the sea into my soul
It reaches into where I cannot hide
Setting my feet upon the road

My heart is old, it holds my memories
My body burns a gem-like flame
Somewhere between the soul and soft machine
Is where I find myself again

Kýrie, eléison down the road that I must travel
Kýrie, eléison through the darkness of the night
Kýrie, eléison where I’m going, will you follow?
Kýrie, eléison on a highway in the light

When I was young, I thought of growing old
Of what my life would mean to me
Would I have followed down my chosen road
Or only wished what I could be

Kýrie, eléison down the road that I must travel
Kýrie, eléison through the darkness of the night
Kýrie, eléison where I’m going, will you follow?
Kýrie, eléison on a highway in the light

Whoa, oh, oh
Whoa, oh, oh
Whoa, oh, oh
Whoa, oh, oh

Kýrie, eléison down the road that I must travel
Kýrie, eléison through the darkness of the night
Kýrie, eléison where I’m going, will you follow?
Kýrie, eléison on a highway in the light

Kýrie, eléison down the road that I must travel (will you follow?)
Kýrie, eléison through the darkness of the night
Kýrie, eléison where I’m going, will you follow? (will you follow)
Kýrie, eléison on a highway in the light

Kýrie, eléison down the road that I must travel

As always, hope you enjoyed my off-the-wall take on the prompt. Hope all my American friends have a safe and happy holiday, and for my worldwide friends, just have a safe and happy day.

  1. Oh my god! I haven’t heard this song in so long!! I love the direction you went with the prompt… I was honestly hoping some of you would interpret it differently. Great choice! Thanks so much for sharing!
