when the sun beats down and burns the tar up on the roof

and your shoes get so hot you wish your tired feet were fire-proof ....

But my song of the week is: I am still running, by Jon Foreman, from the “Winter” EP. This song has been a favourite for a while, and "I am still running" rates alongside "There is no finish line" and "Fly Goose Fly" as my favourite quotations.

You remember me .. before I learned to run
At the kissing tree .. before I learned my guns
We were 17 .. 17 years young
I am still running.. I am still running..

I had no idea .. the pain would be this strong
I had no idea .. the fight would last this long
In my darkest fears .. the rights become the wrongs
I am still running .. I am still running .. I am still running .. I am still running

Build me a home .. inside your scars
Build me a home .. inside your song
Build me a home .. inside your open arms
The only place I ever will belong


I wonder if I will be still running after this week? I had better not be sore.


Over the boardwalk - that's where I'll be
Go get him 'chelle!
