Castiel song
From "the Last Unicorn" soundtrack - which I can't seem to find.

Walking Man's Road
Written by Jimmy Webb, ©1982
Found on The Last Unicorn Soundtrack and Your Move (French import only).

Horizon rising up to meet the purple dawn
Dust demon screaming, bring an eagle to lead me on
For in my heart I carry such a heavy load
Here I am on Man's road, walking Man's road, walking Man's road

I'm hungry, weary, but I cannot lay me down
The rain comes, dreary, but there's no shelter I have found
It will be a long time till I find my abode
Here I am on Man's road, walking Man's road

Moon rising, disguising lonely streets in gay displays
The stars fade, the night shade falls and makes the world afraid
It waits in silence for the sky to explode
Here I am on Man's road, walking Man's road, walking Man's road
Walking Man's road, walking Man's road, walking Man's road

I don't know the song, but from the lyrics it seems like a very good choice.

It comes from the movie "the Last Unicorn" - Living solitary in her wood, a unicorn hears one traveller tell another she is the last of her kind. Afraid that it is true, she leaves the wood to find the others.

This song comes after she takes to the road and finds the world has all but forgotten unicorns.

The group "America" wrote and recorded the soundtrack.

I love the movie and was struck by how appropriate this song was for Castiel.

I had the soundtrack once, but it was from holding a tape recorder up to the VCR as my copied-off-tv tape of the movie was playing, so it won't do you much good, now. If I come across it though, I'll share.

Thanks, I was astounded that neither amazon nor Itunes seem to have it - I always thought it was a classic.

I haven't heard the song, but that's beautiful, Ruth.
