You can still be free

It’s funny how some songs find you, once long lost they make their way back to your ears, for what ever reason they replay within the walls of your mind as the mundane tasks progress and life ticks forward.

This song’s lyrics are so powerful, more powerful perhaps for their undercurrent meaning.  We get lost even though we seem found, we can feel sadness within the happiest setting and physical pain because our heart is hurting, our hearts are missing a piece, our souls tortured.

No matter how dark it all seems time will always set us free, even when all hope is lost light will find its way of breaking through… if you want it to, if you are willing to keep flying for just a little while longer.

I’ve met many people who perpetually say that life is shit, that life is pointless, that nothing good ever happens to them to the point that when good comes their way it is as if the night turns a darker shade of black.  Nothing is good enough, no human can do anything right, nothing is worth anything except personal gain and even then it isn’t seen as such.

When these people realise the damage they have caused to others, not only others but to themselves as well, they can get stuck in the thought process of “even if I change, what is the point, who will be left to see the new me? Who will still want to talk to me?”. Shame and darkness invades once more but the truth is that those that count do see, do care and will be filled with true happiness at their shrugging the cloak of darkness. Vicious circles of night in a daylight filled world.

My wish for those people and for everyone is that they keep on flying, fly high up into the sky and keep flapping those wings… time always sets us free if we believe.

Cool breeze and autumn leaves
Slow motion daylight
A lone pair of watchful eyes
Oversee the living
Feel the presence all around
A tortured soul
A wound unhealing
NO regrets or promises
The past is gone
But you can still be free
If time will set you free

Time now to spread your wings
To take to flight
The life endeavor
Aim for the burning sun
You’re trapped inside
But you can still be free
If time will set you free
But it’s a long long way to go

Keep moving way up high
You see the light
It shines forever
Sail through the crimson skies
The purest light
The light that sets you free
If time will set you free

Sail through the wind and rain tonight
You’re free to fly tonight
And you can still be free
If time will set you free
And going higher than mountain tops
And go high
Free to fly tonight
Free to fly tonight
