Music Monday is a meme that was created by Drew from The Tattooed Book Geek. You pick a song and/or video and share it on Monday.

The song and video I am sharing today is:

John Parr – St Elmo’s Fire (Man In Motion)

I was all over the decades with my Halloween choices but this week let’s head right back to my favorite, the 80’s!

Lyrics: 

Growin’ up you don’t see the writing on the wall
Passin’ by, movin’ straight ahead you knew it all
But maybe sometime if you feel the pain,
You’ll find you’re all alone everything has changed
Play the game you know you can’t quit until it’s won
Soldier of only you can do what must be done
You know, in some ways you’re a lot like me
You’re just a prisoner, and you’re tryin’ to break free
I can see a new horizon underneath the blazing sky
I’ll be where the eagle’s flying higher and higher
Gonna be your man in motion
All I need is a pair of wheels
Take me where the future’s lying St. Elmo’s fire
Burning up don’t know just how far that I can go
Soon be home only just a few miles down the road
And I can make it, I know I can
You broke the boy in me, but you won’t break the man
I can see a new horizon underneath the blazing sky
I’ll be where the eagle’s flying higher and higher
Gonna be your man in motion
All I need is a pair of wheels
Take me where the future’s lying St. Elmo’s fire
I can climb the highest mountain, cross the widest sea
I can feel St. Elmo’s fire burning in me, burning in me
Just once in his life a man has his time
And my time is now I’m comin’ alive
I can hear the music playin’ I can see the banners fly
Feel like a vet again. I hope I ain’t high
Gonna be your man in motion
All I need is a pair of wheels
Take me where the future’s lying St. Elmo’s fire
I can see a new horizon underneath the blazing sky
I’ll be where the eagle’s flying higher and higher
Gonna be your man in motion
All I need is a pair of wheels
Take me where the future’s lying St. Elmo’s fire
I can climb the highest mountain, cross the widest sea
I can feel St. Elmo’s fire burning in me, burning in me
I can feel burning, uh uh inside of me
Songwriters: David Foster / John Stephen Parr
