Keeps Me Running






More legal stuff - and what I'm listening to while working on it.

Read, absorb, ponder, question, write, take a break…double-click the song (again) in my iTunes folder…

As for interpreting the lyrics? I take from them what I want – a desire for escape, gotta get out of here, gotta get this over with…

It’s the beat that keeps me pumped - has me be-boppin’ around the room during my breaks.

Thank God for music.

And for my dancing skills. ;)

One must strive to offset the serious with the silly.

If you give it a listen, play it loudly! I do.



Keep the Car Running - Arcade Fire

Every night my dream’s the same.
Same old city with a different name.
Men are coming to take me away.
I don’t know why but I know I can’t stay.

There’s a weight that’s pressing down.
Late at night you can hear the sound.
Even the noise you make when you sleep.
Can’t swim across a river so deep.
They know my name 'cause I told it to them,
But they don’t know where and they don’t know
When…it’s coming, when it’s coming…

There’s this fear I keep so deep,
Knew its name since before I could speak
They know my name 'cause I told it to them,
But they don’t know where and they don’t know
When…it’s coming, oh, when it’s coming…

Keep the car running

If some night I don’t come home,
Please don’t think I’ve left you alone.
The same place animals go when they die,
You can’t climb across a mountain so high.
The same city where I go when I sleep,
You can’t swim across a river so deep.
They know my name 'cause I told it to them,
But they don’t know where and they don’t know
When…it’s coming, oh, when is it coming?

Keep the car running
Keep the car running
Keep the car running

Music is what keeps me going to. It brings creativity, courage and more for me to do my daily chores.

I'm into a few songs for a while (last one was Modest Mouse, Dashboard) and then I move on to a mew musical obsession.

Great song! Always keep that music blasting and sing and dance until you loose your voice and want to drop.
Music is the best healer. It does offset the serious stuff, but also brings so much peace. At least for me, a calmness comes over me and I know everything will be okay.
