Run

Is it possible to never get sick of a song? I think so. I can’t even remember the first time I heard “Run” by Snow Patrol, but it just stuck with me. It has a hauntingly hopeful composition, and the makings of one of those songs you’d like to be serenaded with in your lifetime. To me, the lyrics represent the desire we all have–that someone will stick around, even through the hard times. “Even if you cannot hear my voice, I’ll be right beside you, dear.”

There is no promise any person will stay with us forever. But we are promised the Lord will. He will be by your side in all your triumphs and all your troubles.

The feeling of having no choice but to “light up” and face the world is true. Life becomes somewhat of a fight at times. Take comfort, for we know no matter what obstacle comes our way, He is right beside us. Even when we feel as though His voice is silent, His presence is ever-present.

“Run”

I’ll sing it one last time for you
Then we really have to go
You’ve been the only thing that’s right
In all I’ve done

And I can barely look at you
But every single time I do
I know we’ll make it anywhere
Away from here

Light up, light up
As if you have a choice
Even if you cannot hear my voice
I’ll be right beside you dear

Louder louder
And we’ll run for our lives
I can hardly speak I understand
Why you can’t raise your voice to say

To think I might not see those eyes
Makes it so hard not to cry
And as we say our long goodbye
I nearly do

Light up, light up
As if you have a choice
Even if you cannot hear my voice
I’ll be right beside you dear

Louder louder
And we’ll run for our lives
I can hardly speak I understand
Why you can’t raise your voice to say

Slower slower
We don’t have time for that
All I want’s to find an easier way
To get out of our little heads

Have heart, my dear
We’re bound to be afraid
Even if it’s just for a few days
Making up for all this mess

Light up, light up
As if you have a choice
Even if you cannot hear my voice
I’ll be right beside you dear
