Secret Journey
From The Police album Ghost in the Machine
Words and music by Sting

Upon a secret journey
I met a holy man
His blindness was his wisdom
I'm such a lonely man

And as the world was turning
It rolled itself in pain
This does not seem to touch you
He pointed to the rain

You will see light in the darkness
You will make some sense of this
And when you've made your secret journey
You will find the love you miss

And on the days that followed
I listened to his words
I strained to understand him
I chased his thoughts like birds

You will see light in the darkness
You will make some sense of this
And when you've made your secret journey
You will find the love you miss

You will see light in the darkness
You will make some sense of this
You will see joy in this sadness
You will find this love you miss

And when you've made your secret journey
You will be a holy man


"I find that life is like going up stairs, and we constantly go up or down and the people in our lives go up and down with us. Some move faster up then others and others just stay on the same step all their lives. The higher you go, the more you learn about yourself and your surroundings. And I think the best part of being on this stairway is that you can always go back and help people up, and in doing so they are helping you up one more step too."

One who I hold in high regard wrote these words to me as I began my own journey. He held out his hand to lift me up.
