Run

I decided to do a special post for all affected by COVID-19 in some form or other during this uncertain time through the medium of music. I’ve embedded Leona’s beautiful cover of this song for those who prefer to listen to her version. I hope some will find comfort through this and others hope. Stay well. Stay safe.

Lyrics by Snow Patrol:

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
It makes it so hard not to cry
And as we say our long goodbyes
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 voiceโ€ฆ
