41. That’s Freedom sung by John Farnham

That’s Freedom” sung by John Farnham
(click here to listen)

I don’t know what you want from me
Or what you think a love ought to be
I want something that’s open and strong
As the country this road’s moving on
From the mountain to the valley
From the ocean to the alley
From the highway to the river
One emotion to deliver
One heart, one way, one love
To share but not to chain
That’s freedom
It’s a song of the heart
A race in the wind
A light in the dark
That’s freedom
I don’t know why it takes so long
To remember
What the world’s doin’ wrong
Never wanted to shove my plan on another
Who can’t understand
All I want is a fast lane to
Where the road across this plain
Won’t take you
I want something you understand
To make us stand proud
As nothing else can
It’s a song of the heart
A race in the wind
A light in the dark
That’s freedom
It’s a measure of trust
When love is alive
It’s tender and tough
That’s freedom
It’s all love is about
The opening up and letting it out
Let freedom ring

      “Some Days are Diamonds”

In addition to a reminder that this is the nature of life – a mix of good and bad – I think Jesus would add that it is meant to be this way.  He most certainly could sing this song about his own life. Indeed, there is a need for some days to be ‘stone’.  Evolution itself is driven by deprivation, and human beings are no different; discontentment is the engine behind progress in every sphere of human activity, including the most important one: the spiritual drive to be all that one can be.
