Ghosts of the Great Highway

Ghosts of the Great Highway

The following prayer/lyrics are by Sun Kil Moon in their song “Gentle Moon” from Ghosts of the Great Highway.  It has become an important source of strength for me over a very hard year.  Hope you enjoy it too:

Smile down on us Sun, show your rays
When things come undone
All animals lead, us to light
When we can’t see
Stars, Saturn and Moon, glow for those
Who cannot get through
Rain fall and voice sound for those of whom
Still are not found

Gentle Moon, find us soon
Gentle Moon, find us soon

Black sky and black sea, lighten up
When we can’t breathe
All dreams escape fire, over worlds
Fly but won’t tire
Slow down on us wind, hold us still
When everything spins

All secrets and lies, let them out

Dreams escape fire, they won’t tire
Dreams escape fire, they won’t tire

Gentle Moon, find us soon
Gentle Moon, find us soon

All calendars pass, days die off
And hope cannot last
But if love is like stone, yours was mine
Through to my bones
Oh how can we give back to those
With whom we can’t live
When will the flame break
And spare the good people it takes

Souls escape fire, they rise higher
Souls escape fire, they rise higher

Gentle Moon, find us soon
Gentle Moon, find us soon
