there are, however, many song lyrics that I have written quickly - - usually because i have been thinking about a subject for awhile. those who know me, understand that i am constantly writing down my ideas; while waiting in line at the bank, sitting at the gas pump, waiting at at the dr. office - - driving.
i was driving to the bank to make a deposit one day. it was an unusual weather day for the area in which i live - - gloomy, overcast and gray with a slight mist blanketing everything in a silver sheen. i had finished chemo-therapy and finally had my hair growing back in. life was seemingly more normal, but i felt something was missing. by the time i reached the bank the lyric "free to heal" kept running through my head. driving home i started singing more lyrics, "free to feel, free to heal, free to be with you." by the time i arrived home, i called my niece gina to come over and sing the first verse and chorus of the song "free".

"i'm movin' on - what's done is done
another time, another life, another place
shedding the old life - startin' brand new
i'm free to feel, free to heal, free to be with you
i know the darkness will have to flee from a heart that's been filled with pain
by a love that's shared, it lights up every single day
you're my guiding star, my mornin' light, my beacon in the night
now that i've found you, we'll never say good-bye
i'm listenin' for your answer, please don't make me wait
thru' joy and pain i want to walk life's path with you
i've been drownin', on my way down
from bein' all alone, walkin' on my own, your love's my way out
never say - never say - never say goodbye"
|"free to heal"|
the lyric of the song "free" has a double entendre' that describes the desire that is present in each human heart. the need for a relationship on earth that gives you the freedom to be yourself and then the deepest longing of the human heart - - that of a close relationship with Jehovah God.
i read a great quote this week that sums up the idea of "free".
