Melissa Etheridge – I Run For Life lyrics

(Melissa Etheridge)

It's been years since they told her about it
The darkness her body possessed
And the scars are still there in the mirror
Everyday that she gets herself dressed
Though the pain is miles and miles behind her
And the fear is now a docile beast
If you ask her why she is still running
She'll tell you it makes her complete

[Chorus:]
I run for hope
I run to feel
I run for the truth
For all that is real
I run for your mother your sister your wife
I run for you and me my friend:| I run for life

It's a blur since they told me about it
How the darkness had taken it's toll
And they cut into my skin and they cut into my body
But they will never get a piece of my soul
And now I'm still learning the lesson
To awake when I hear the call
And if you ask me why I am still running
I'll tell you I run for us all

[Chorus:]
I run for hope
I run to feel
I run for the truth
For all that is real
I run for your mother your sister your wife
I run for you and me my friend:| I run for life

And someday if they tell you about it
If the darkness knocks on your door
Remember her remember me
We will be running as we have before
Running for answers
Running for more

I run for hope
I run to feel
I run for the truth
For all that is real
I run for your mother your sister your wife
I run for you and me my friend
I run for hope
I run to feel
I run for the truth
For all that is real
I run for your mother your sister your wife
I run for you and me my friend:| I run for life
Ohohohoh

I run for your mother your sister your daughter your wife
I run for you and me my friend:| I run for life

    I thought I was done with my workout until I heard on my play list:.
    I run for hope, I run to feel, I run for the truth for all that is real, I run for your mother your sister your wife, I run for you and me my friend!
    To all the survivors this song makes me run just a little bit harder just a little bit faster. And I gasp for air to remind me how lucky I am to be alive and I will never stop running for you my friends!

    I miss you so much mom. Everyone else, be strong. She went to sloan kettering in nyc and there's many research groups. Join groups, gain knowledge, keep a positive mind to help keep a positive body and soul. Make amends with those you fought with, not because you have cancer, because you have a heart. Start the healing process. That's all I can say. I don't have cancer, but I've learned so much over these years. Whats important, what's not, how love outweighs dislike or hatred, and most importantly why certain people were put in their lives. I love you all. Bless.

    This song means sooo much to me. My mom survived gist cancer for over 10 years. About a year ago I rode with her in her punchbuggy and she played me this song and told me to listen to the lyrics, I listened, but did not comprehend because I was in such disbelief that this would beat her one day. She just recently passed and she gave me her punchbuggy and the cd I kept in was this song. Its very hard to listen to, but for a woman that was told 10 years ago she had 3 months to live and lasted this long, everyone should run for life.
