|Used to hate this song!|
The lyrics "Kýrie, eléison" mean either "Lord have mercy" or "Christ have mercy" in Greek and according to composer Richard Page the song was basically a prayer. Think about it. "Kýrie, eléison down this road that I must travel. Kýrie, eléison through the darkeness in the night."
It's funny, now I quite enjoy the song and will freely listen to it whenever I hear it.
As far as living in the 80s when this song came out it reminds me of the early years I had my Commodore 64 and playing games like "Bruce Lee", "Spy Hunter" or "Raid on Bungling Bay". It also reminds me of road trips from Conyers to the malls in Atlanta with my friend Tracy.
I rate this song highly.
