Song Lyric Sunday

OMG I feel like I’ve been gone forever on my blog.  I’ve just been so busy with the house decorating, painting, garage cleaning, packing for vaca i.e. Charleston, SC.  So excited.  We will be staying right across from the marina.  We might even go out on a yacht for a day trip !!! eeeek  Sorry I digress from Song Lyric Sunday.  But one more quick story about today as I was cleaning the garage.  I came across a bracelet I had bought a couple of years ago when we were out in Virginia Beach.  It was a present for someone and I didn’t get a chance to give it to her and I just forgot about it.  Well I get to wear it and it brings back happy times when I look at it.  God really does work in the strangest of ways.  Okay now time for Song Lyric Sunday.  

Today’s prompt is, “Avenue/Boulevard/Drive/Lane/Road/Street.”  Once again the husband helped me but I had the same one picked out.  Yes we share a brain ❤ .  My song is by Jackson Browne (one of my all time favs !!!)  Running on Empty is my choice.

“Running On Empty”

Looking out at the road rushing under my wheels
Looking back at the years gone by like so many summer fields
In sixty-five I was seventeen and running up one-o-one
I don’t know where I’m running now, I’m just running onRunning on – running on empty
Running on – running blind
Running on – running into the sun
But I’m running behindGotta do what you can just to keep your love alive
Trying not to confuse it with what you do to survive
In sixty-nine I was twenty-one and I called the road my own
I don’t know when that road turned onto the road I’m onRunning on – running on empty
Running on – running blind
Running on – running into the sun
But I’m running behindEveryone I know, everywhere I go
People need some reason to believe
I don’t know about anyone but me
If it takes all night, that’ll be all right
If I can get you to smile before I leaveLooking out at the road rushing under my wheels
I don’t know how to tell you all just how crazy this life feels
I look around for the friends that I used to turn to to pull me through
Looking into their eyes I see them running too

Running on – running on empty
Running on – running blind
Running on – running into the sun
But I’m running behind

Honey you really tempt me
You know the way you look so kind
I’d love to stick around but I’m running behind
You know I don’t even know what I’m hoping to find
Running into the sun but I’m running behind

That’s all for Song Lyric Sunday.  Hope all had a fun weekend and looking forward to a brand new week with all kinds of possibilities and new adventures ❤  Blessings Bloggers ❤
