This past weekend we enjoyed a night together at the Alaska State fair, hanging out with friends (old and new) at the Collective Soul concert. I remember back in college before we were dating, Kevin and I spent a super-de-duper fun night cruising Anchorage, listening to our favorite tunes (including Collective Soul’s “Run”) while flipping a quarter to determine whether we should turn left or right at each light. So here, for your perusing pleasure, the lyrics for “Run”. Oh, and by the way, I don’t get most lyrics. I mean, I wanna be cool and understand what the artist is trying to convey, but usually I just don’t get “it”. This reminds me of my inability to understand poetry until I’ve read the piece aloud several times. Anyway…

“Run”

Are these times contagious
I’ve never been this bored before
Is this the prize I’ve waited for
Now as the hours passing
There’s nothing left here to mature
I long to find a messenger

Have I got a long way to run [x2]
Yeah, I run [x2]

Is there a cure among us
From this processed sanity
I weaken with each voice that sings
In this world of purchase
I’m going to buy back memories
To awaken some old qualities

Have I got a long way to run [x2]
Have I got a long way to run [x2]
Yeah, I run [x2]
Have I got a long way to run [x2]
Yeah, I run [x4]

Have I got a long way to run [x4]
