Follow the light of truth…

Who knows where the world may turn us, only a fool would say
Who knows what the fates may have in store
Follow the light of truth as far as our eyes can see
How should we know where that may be? How should we know?

The song played at random from the USB link Sync in my car. It is music that seems so ancient and unfamiliar to my kids, to most people, since it wasn’t as popular as a pop song full of love and the promise of sex or angst. It has stuck in my head all week. Not like the dance music at the roller rink, but in a haunting way that brings back memories that go back far before the song was written.

Follow the light of truth as far as our eyes can see.

As far as our eyes and hearts can see.

I sat on my deck, the husband and kids off in the night with friends.

A cold wind came across my face and I looked up to see the Ghost looking out over the oak trees and the meadow beyond.

“Gaudi. I wish that album had come out when I was alive. 1987 a year after I died.”

“You can hear it now.”

“It isn’t the same when you’re dead, when you’re a ghost. Just like some things aren’t the same when you’re a Vampire. And YOU are a Vampire.”

“You have a point Ghost.”

The Ghost looked at me sideways and gave me a rare smile. “You know the light of truth, we both do.”

“Maybe,” I said, “maybe everyone does somewhere locked inside.”

road morning

Allen Parsons Project: La Sagrada Familia (lyrics for entire song)

Who knows where the road may lead us, only a fool would say
Who knows if we’ll meet along the way
Follow the brightest star as far as the brave may dare
What will we find when we get there

La Sagrada Familia we pray the storm will soon be over
La Sagrada Familia for the lion and the lamb

Who knows where the winds will blow us, only a fool would say
Who knows if we’ll ever reach the shore
Follow a rising sun with eyes that may only stare
What kind of fire will burn us there? What kind of fire?
Only a fool would say

La Sagrada Falilia the wind has changed the storm is over
La Sagrada Familia for the lion and the lamb
La Sagrada Familia we thank the lord the danger’s over
La Sagrada Familia there’s peace throughout the land

Under clear blue skies our voices rise in songs of glory
And for all those years our eyes and ears were filled with tears

Who knows where the world may turn us, only a fool would say
Who knows what the fates may have in store
Follow the light of truth as far as our eyes can see
How should we know where that may be? How should we know?

Then the angry skies, the battle cries, the sounds of glory
And for all those years our eyes and ears were filled with tears

Who knows where the road may lead us, only a fool would say
Who knows wha’s been lost along the way
Look for the promised land in all of the dreams we share
How will we know when we are there? How will we know?
Only a fool would say

La Sagrada Falilia the war is won the battle’s over
La Sagrada Familia for the lion and the lamb
La Sagrada Familia we thank the lord the danger’s over
La Sagrada Familia behold the mighty hand
La Sagrada Familia the night is gone the waiting’s over
La Sagrada Familia there’s peace throughout the land

Until the next time
Until the next time

La Sagrada Familia
