Welcome to My World

This song still makes the goosehairs rise up on my arms. I don't know why.

It's not the pictures in the video that make the magic; it's the voices and the words that touch my heart and my mind.

Listen to the words - never mind the pictures - does it speak to you, too?



Kyrie
by Mr. Mister

Kyrie eleison, kyrie eleison, kyrie

The wind blows hard against this mountain side,
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 gemlike flame
Somewhere between the soul and soft machine,
is where I find myself again

Chorus:
Kyrie eleison, down the road that I must travel
Kyrie eleison, through the darkness of the night
Kyrie eleison, where I'm going will you follow
Kyrie eleison, 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 . . .

Chorus:
Kyrie eleison, down the road that I must travel
Kyrie eleison, through the darkness of the night
Kyrie eleison, where I'm going will you follow
Kyrie eleison, on a highway in the light

(chorus repeats out...)

"Kyrie Eleison (Greek for "Lord have mercy"; the Latin transliteration supposes a pronunciation as in Modern Greek) is a very old, even pre-Christian, expression used constantly in all Christian liturgies."

There are more things in heaven and earth than man has an explanation for ... some famous guy said that. But I can't remember who ... whom ... whatever.

Ya know, Kyrie was one of those songs I always misheard the lyrics on.

I thought they were singing: Curing with lasers.

That's funny. But I understand. I've misheard a few myself.
