Gym playlist # 9 I ran (flock of seagulls)

When I came to writing about this song on my play list, quite honestly I was ambivalent. It neither has a particularly great bass line, nor particularly meaningful lyrics. Truthfully I picked it only because of the name and it’s modest tie to the 80’s which were pretty good for me. It has a particularly long lead in with no beat and I’ve often thought I should find a replacement song.

As I began writing this post, however, I came across this review on lyric interpretations.com of the song that was actually marked with a label that said:

With a lead-in like that, I had to click View Anyway. And I share it with you because it’s just funny.

Sometimes life is about just being funny

Be blessed today. 🙂

This futuristic song is about him getting older and walking along the and deciding to run for president of the united states! All the $H*¥ he faces thru the campaign he felt he couldnt get away from, polls controlled media hollywood cnn death threats false accusations abandonment betrayal etc but despite the uphill battle wins and finds glorious golden victory on election day! by a landslide

I ran

I walk along the avenue

I never thought I’d meet a girl like you

Meet a girl like you

With auburn hair and tawny eyes

The kind of eyes that hypnotize me through

You hypnotize me through

And I ran

I ran so far away

I just ran

I ran all night and day

I couldn’t get away

A cloud appears above your head

A beam of light comes shining down on you

Shining down on you

The cloud is moving nearer still

Aurora Borealis comes in view

Aurora comes in view

And I ran

I ran so far away

I just ran

I ran all night and day

I couldn’t get away

Reached out a hand to touch your face

You’re slowly disappearing from my view

Disappearing from my view

Reached out a hand to try again

I’m floating in a beam of light with you

A beam of light with you

And I ran

I ran so far away

I just ran

I ran all night and day

And I ran

I ran so far away

I just ran

I ran all night and day

Author: Journey-For-Life

I am a musician, an engineer, a mentor; my desire is to leave things better than I found them; I am a sister, daughter, wife, mother, aunt, friend. Suicide breaks my heart; Cancer breaks my heart; Human trafficking breaks my heart; Seeing people make bad life decisions breaks my heart. I am thankful for the One True and Living God who saved me from myself and, through His Son Jesus Christ, has saved from my sins; I am confidently persistent, passionately determined and boldly creative so that I may inspire others to live a life that ultimately matters.
