Kyrie Lyrics - Mr. Mister
Review The Song (8)
Kyrie eleison, kyrie eleison, kyrie
The wind blows hard against this mountain side, across the sea into my soul
It reaches into where I cannot hide, setting my feet upon the road
My heart is old, it holds my memories, my body burns a gemlike flame
Somewhere between the soul and soft machine, is where I find myself again
Kyrie eleison, down the road that I must travel
Kyrie eleison, through the darkness of the night
Kyrie eleison, where I'm going will you follow
Kyrie eleison, on a highway in the light
When I was young I thought of growing old, of what my life would mean to me
Would I have followed down my chosen road, or only wished what I could be
(chorus repeats out...)

Christian meaning in song | Reviewer: agochoa | 8/7/13
Actually QUAERERE@LIVE.MSN, Youre incorrect on the band's alternate Greek God meaning. It has everything to do with Christianity. I got this from an interview..."Richard Page did write the music and melody, but I am the one who wrote the lyrics. I got the inspiration from singing it as a kid in an Episcopal church in Phoenix."- John Lang, Chicago Sun Times.
Kurie Eleeson | Reviewer: QUAERERE@LIVE.MSN | 10/5/11
Kyrie Eleison Origin is from "GREEK" Kurie Eleeson for Lord have Mercy. The Greeks, had their own mythological Gods; Zeus, Apollo, etc. Therefore, one may conclude that the Kurie Eleeson is referring to a Greek God and not to the God found in "Christian Mythology". If you want to know where the Christian Mythology originated, read about the life of "HORUS" who was born of the Virgin Isis-Mary and the God Osiris. Horus father was the fist God known as The "Christ". Horus myth goes back 3000 BCE.
Sometimes Faith finds you | Reviewer: Michael R. Mason | 2/9/11
This song has always appealed to me even before I was aware of the "Lord Have Mercy" translation...Although it is no longer played in the top 40 rotation of most pop radio stations, occasionally it surfaces either on a diverse fm band or a cable television music channel...When it does it seems too always enter my life at a time when I need faith, hope, and encouragement on this beautifully difficult journey that we all are on...All artistic venues are a result of some level of Devine Intervention in my humble belief...In some God's Hand plays a more obvious and powerful role than others...This song is an example of the potential of that Gift being passed on too others through Mr. Mister's creative talents,
my daughter | Reviewer: teri lain | 10/20/10
my daughter's middle name is keriallysen--we have always pronounced it kyrie eleison. we are greek orthodox and so we know the meaning of the words and how true it became. our daughter's first name is xenia-for st xenia of st. petersburg and throughout the years whenever she would get in trouble those were my responses to her "fun and times of trouble"---xenia, lord have mercy. it became a joke of such and a quite funny.
she got married a month ago....may the lord have mercy and bless them both.
a beautiful song.... and a beautiful name. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/25/09
In 1991, my daughter was born and named Kyrie, and she is well aware her name came from a Mr Mister tune *smiles*
If said in latin form.. the word Kyrie is pronounced... "keer-ee-ey" (the long a sound at the end.)
For clarification... the phrase Kyrie eleison = keer-ee-ey e-ley-uh-sawn means "Lord have mercy" or as a response "Lord have mercy upon us"
Kyrie is the latin word for Lord.
My daugters name is not pronouced with the long a sound at the end. She is Kyrie(Keer ee), and her name came from this song and i am so pleased others see the beauty in the words.
my daughters name | Reviewer: amanda anderson | 12/2/08

Finally get it. | Reviewer: Lance | 6/24/08
For years I didn't really like this song simply because it didn't seem to make sense to me. I thought it was a girls name, but finally I have discovered exactly what Kyrie Eleison means and now I love it!
Lord have mercy ;)
