Running for Your Life

from Sea Change by Richard Turgeon



Enjoy this sonic onslaught of hard rock power in the vein of the Foo Fighters and the Police. I really gave my all to the production on this one and hopefully that comes through. It's about breaking free. Turn it up loud on a long drive. You'll see what I mean. Enjoy!


You’re on the ground but six feet under
It’s been so long since you were walking free and clear
They held you down and made you wonder
Deep down you know your home is anywhere but here

You took your seat before they boxed you in
Today’s the day you heed the call
It’s time to break away and run again

The morning light will guide you on the open road
And you’ll remember who you are
The desert sky will burn the shadows from your past
To find your place among the stars

You played it safe but you weren’t in the game
Your comfort zone just kept you in a cage
You know there’s something better out there
It’s never-ending and it’s time to turn the page

Today you’re running for your life
