One of my all time favorite songs: Run

Snow Patrol - Run 🎢


This is one of my all time favorite songs. This band makes great music. I even have a couple of (non-copied!) CD's which I still listen to in this era of online-music-listening-opportunities.

Concerning this song it isn't really the case that the lyrics are really poetic, but they are gripping. It's the all over mood this songs breathes that captivates me again and again. It like the feeling of being completely lost, broken, depressed, but not alone, never alone. Someone is walking along with you in the darkness that surrounds you. There is a light in the distance and as long as you don't let go of each other, you can make it. That.


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 voice to say

Slower, slower
We don't have time for that
All I want is 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

In memoriam ~ Chris

mijn meisje, mijn lieve meisje
ik ben gebroken, maar voor jou ook blij

jij jaagt nu op spookmuisjes
en vangt vast spookvogeltjes

mijn meisje, mijn lieve meisje

in de poezenhemel woon je nu
voor altijd jong
voor altijd vrij

maar ach mijn meisje, mijn lieve meisje

ik mis je
ik mis je


je was bijna je hele leven
een heel groot deel van dat van mij

Already his

erratic thoughts run wild
my brain pulsating with unruly life

death - so inviting
an idyllic image anchored in my mind
of secret glances & romantic dances

he awaits me
patiently
till last breath ~ soon

this life, this world
I won't miss

carve my name into stone
I am already gone
I am already his



Wat altijd zal zijn

nu het donker wordt en wij ouder
kijk ik terug - niet achteruit
zie de gloed van jouw gedachten
zo warm en zo mooi
als een brug van wat eens was
naar wat altijd zal zijn - jij
een zachte trilling in de lucht
als van een vleugelslag - vrij
