Song Lyric Sunday: Search

As the great musical poet Kiki Dee once said, “I’ve got the music in me.” Seriously, music is part of my daily life, so I participate in Song Lyric Sunday. This week’s theme is search.

Upon reading the theme for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday, the first song that dropped in my mental jukebox was The Search Is Over by Survivor. Uh, no. Then, I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For by U2 dropped. Again, no. I turned on Pandora (well, I went to the website….) and the second song that played was the one I decided to showcase this week (the first didn’t fit the theme at all).

I’ve been away from blogging for a month mostly due to a writing project I wanted to do AND THAT IS NOW COMPLETE! YAY! Writing for me, since it’s creative nonfiction, means a lot of memory and soul searching. This song, by one of my all-time favorite bands, is about the latter, as are many of the songs written by the half of the duo that wrote this tune.

This song ponders the past — maybe having had several pasts, trying to find where her fears come from, asking the questions out loud to another so as to try to figure out what her own soul — or is it souls —  is/are telling her.

How long ’til my soul gets it right 
Can any human being ever reach that kind of light
I call on the resting soul of Galileo king of night vision
King of insight  

I often take these kinds of journeys, especially when I’m writing. I’ve not used the technique of calling on people like Galileo, but maybe I should… … …

From their 1992 CD Rites of Passage (info and lyrics here), I give you, for your listening and viewing pleasure:

    1. Glad to introduce you and that you enjoyed the tune. I use them often in Song Lyric Sunday posts. If this were the 80s, I’d make you a mix tape. As it’s the 2000s, I could send you a playlist, except mine would be just a list of my favorite songs, not some fancy Spotify thingy or something. 🙂
