Description
Short Song Description:
This song describes a place of spiritual completeness which I have visited many times
Long Song Description:
To be in a place of perpetual spiritual renewal. To really feel to be a son or daughter of God.
The long physical journey to get there and the amazing feeling of gentle union with the Ground of Being, without fanfare or pompous rites, rituals and ceremonies; that is Meherabad
Story Behind the Song:
I've heard some nice songs written about Meherabad, some of which I've sung at Baba's shrine in India. I'm happy I was blessed with this melody and words which came fairly easily.

Lyrics
Is there any place you'd rather go to?
Any other place to get your fill?
Any other place you'll feel more wanted than on Meherabad Hill?
Have you dreamed of drinking sacred water?
Find a place where agitation's
stilled?
Where we live as God's own sons and daughters on Meherabad Hill?

Middle 8:
I can see it now
Getting on a plane, sitting in a train and then a car
It may take so many hours
A bit of jet lag to test the will
But, it's worth it, every mile as you arrive and climb that sacred hill

There's a thirst that grows each day within me
That can't be quenched in me until
I lose my heart in that amazing wonder on Meherabad Hill
For those of you who've never, ever been there
Upon your heart you'll feel His loving quill
A light caress or blazing incandescence on Meherabad Hill

2nd Middle 8:
Oh, it feels so sweet
A feast of Love complete
A quiet melody where sea meets sand
I can see it in the evening or at day's dawning the promised land
So much Loving, in His Silence
It takes the breath away, the master's hand

Is there any place you'd rather go to ...
