Secret Journey" is a song by The Police from their 1981 album, Ghost in the Machine. Written by Sting, the song tells of a mystical journey that will make the traveller a "holy man". Although "Secret Journey" was not released as a single in Europe, the song did see a single release in some countries, such as the United States and Canada. According to Sting, the lyrical inspiration for "Secret Journey" was the 1963 novel Meetings with Remarkable Men, written by George Gurdjieff

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 i. 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 this 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 You will see joy in this sadness You will find this love you miss.

Drummer Stewart Copeland’s ‘De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da’ B-side, ‘A Sermon’, is stuffed with sharp hooks that stand among the best of the group’s work. The Police rarities bonus album, how come the track ‘Secret Journey. isn’t included on the ‘Ghost In The Machine. album? Also; have these albums undergone a fresh digital remastering (. giving a better sound than the now somewhat old ‘Message In A Bo. anthology)? I look forward to hearing from you shortly.

Anyway, Secret Journey was always one of my personal favourite Police songs. Highly underrated! 5 years назад. Wow!I Never before heard this version by The Police. It's a rough, unfinished studio version. I think that although it is sung by Sting, it is the only song written by Stewart Copeland. That's what always fascinated me about this b-side from the "Ghost in The Machine" album. More than that, it seems to me the perfect song to revisit on Good Friday which is today
