Song of the week 8 (Blindside – My heart escapes)

This song has been blaring in my car stereo this week.  I love the passion in Christian’s voice.  I love the conviction of the song.

I dig the message of the lyrics.  And what is really cool is that this band is Swedish and thus they’re writing epic / make you think about life and God lyrics in their second language (English).  And some of the imagery they come up with is far better than bands whose first language is English.  For sure!

Blindside – My Heart Escapes

The smell of water on the sidewalk
And the breath of rain in my lungs
To meet you after this long time
Tells me I’m not that young
Not a word spoken from your lips or mine
You’re like a dream
I thought I left behind

I shouldn’t sleep
I should wake up

I never meant to give it away
My heart escapes and I try
To catch it when it runs to you
So here I stand in silence
With bloodstains on my raincoat
My heart escapes
My heart escapes and runs to you

You’re still the same underneath those grey clothes I gave you
And your photo remains in my wallet
You are planting seeds of color in my ground
Do I dare to stay or do I walk away?
I wish I was safe and sound

I shouldn’t sleep
I should wake up

I never meant to give it away
My heart escapes and I try
To catch it when it runs to you
So here I stand in silence
With bloodstains on my raincoat
My heart escapes
Catch it
Catch it when it runs to you
There is still rain in my heart
And the blood is see-through like water
But I still wear your ring on my finger
And you’re still wearing mine

I never meant to give you away
My heart escapes and
I should have tried
To catch it and run to you
Here I stand in silence
With bloodstains on my raincoat
My heart escapes
My heart escapes and runs to you

Catch me when I run to you
