See how deep

A friend sent this to me today. I’m going outside right now – and I am going to run up a hill. 

Running Up that Hill

It doesn’t hurt me
Do you want to feel how it feels?
Do you want to know, know that it doesn’t hurt me?
Do you want to hear about the deal that I’m making?

[Pre-Chorus 1]
You
It’s you and me

[Chorus]
And if I only could
I’d make a deal with God
And I’d get him to swap our places
Be running up that road
Be running up that hill
Be running up that building
Say, if I only could, oh…

[Verse 2]
You don’t want to hurt me
But see how deep the bullet lies
Unaware I’m tearing you asunder
Ooh, there is thunder in our hearts
Is there so much hate for the ones we love?
Tell me, we both matter, don’t we?

[Pre-Chorus 2]
You
It’s you and me
It’s you and me, won’t be unhappy

[Chorus]
And if I only could
I’d make a deal with God
And I’d get him to swap our places
Be running up that road
Be running up that hill
Be running up that building
Say, if I only could, oh…

[Pre-Chorus 2]
You
It’s you and me
It’s you and me, won’t be unhappy

[Bridge]
Oh come on, baby
Oh come on, darling
Let me steal this moment from you now
Oh come on, angel
Come on, come on, darling
Let’s exchange the experience, oh

[Chorus 2]
And if I only could
I’d make a deal with God
And I’d get him to swap our places
I’d be running up that road
Be running up that hill
With no problems

[Chorus 2]
Say, if I only could
I’d make a deal with God
And I’d get him to swap our places
I’d be running up that road
Be running up that hill
With no problems

[Chorus 2]
Say, if I only could
I’d make a deal with God
And I’d get him to swap our places
I’d be running up that road
Be running up that hill
With no problems

[Outro]
Say, if I only could
Be running up that hill
With no problems
If I only could, be running up that hill
If I only could, be running up that hill

I'm a rock-n-roller poet who left the Big Apple for the Big Sky Desert where I've been letting it be and grooving with universal love, singing to the gods, dancing with the muses and bicycling with dreamtime messengers. I like altering my reality through imagination, movement, breath, and makin' stuff.

  1. When I was in Guatemala in 2018, I ran up a hill almost every day. It was immensely satisfying. Now, after two injuries, poor self care, Covid, and a love of food, I find myself unable to run even on flat ground. It’s as if my feet have forgotten what to do. I know I will recover, but it is very odd.
