New Song

I've come across a new song (new to me anyway) that gives me a lift when I hear it. Guess how often I play it.

The song is called 'To Be Free', by Mike Oldfield and is from his 'Tres Lunas' CD.

The CD itself is described as a 'chill out' album and after several listenings I understand why as it relaxes me. Even the lyrics are not disturbing me when I write or read.

The music supports the words, most of which are spoken by his sister Sally, all fitting together to carry the listener to a peaceful plateau....sorry, I got carried away there.

Given everything that's falling down around me at the moment, it's the kind of lift I need. I'd prefer a warm, loving hug, but this will suffice in the meantime.

.................................................

To Be Free by Mike Oldfield

You find yourself alone, sometimes
Without a home, no protection
You don't know which way to go
You're lost, no direction

Suddenly, out of the blue
Some kind of magic comes to you
You don't know how, you don't know why
But someday, gonna take off, fly

(wish, make a wish)
My wish would be...

To be free
To be wild
And to be
Just like a child

And if I get lost
I really don't mind
Cos I'm me
Doing just fine

You're out in the cold, sometimes
As far as you can see, misty
And you want to run, into the sun
The road is lost, sand shifty

Suddenly, out of the blue
Some kind of magic pushes you through
You don't know when, how or why
But someday, gonna take off and fly

And if I had a wish, my wish would be...

To be free
To be wild
And to be
Just like a child

And if I get lost
I really don't mind
Cos I'm me
Doing just fine

Just like a child
I really don't mind
Cos I'm free
Doing just fine
