‘I Shall Go Unbounded’ by Eric Andersen

Lyrics:

 Oh I see in your prison your chains how they clamor how they clang

Like fingers reaching through the darkness gripping on your bars in vain

Yes I would only like to help you that is all and nothing more

But I will go unbounded looking outside on your door

Oh you don’t have to bend for me yes I’m watching but I will not blame

No you don’t have to send for me my eyes can only mirror out your name

For I would only like to tell you that is all and nothing more

But I will go unbounded standing outside of your door

Oh you do what you have to do right or wrong weak or strong

But if I see you at the crossroads remember me before passing on

For I would only like to know you that is all and nothing more

But I will go unbounded waiting outside of your door

    We all want to be treated as human beings with respect and be acknowedged with dignity. What would it take to smile and say hi?

  2. As they say…it takes more muscles to frown than to smile! Thanks for the comment. And the song does promote a respect for all of life.

  3. Paula says:

    Very beautiful, I can feel it.

  4. “I Shall Go Unbounded” by Eric Anderson immediately brings to mind the inner freedom that comes with the peace of knowing oneself thus knowing God who speaks to us from within. He has a wonderfully comfortable voice which blends with the instruments enhancing the message of this song–respect and acceptance for others and oneself.

  5. So true…”I would only like to help you that is all and nothing more…” Words describing genuine service to others.

    This is a beautiful song which is open ended enough to catch everyone's attention and invites them to find an application in their own life upon which to rest.

    I like it!

    I am thinking of St. Francis of Assisi and the themes that emerge as we observe the Right to Life month this October.
