when becky and i went to birmingham for liz’s wedding, she told me about the band sea wolf. we listened to the cd in the car but inevitably we were distracted by games of MASH (i ended up marrying Kappy from “Greek” and living in a shack) and all sorts of catch-up chat. it made for great background music, but i didn’t give it a wholehearted listen until today when i’ve been listening to the cd on repeat.

here is one of my favorite songs:

Well I’m so sad tonight
And the words won’t come out right
It’s been a long day on the track
And its stamina that I lack

So won’t you run to me tonight?
Tonight we could pretend we’re just lovers
But I’ll only ever be a middle distance runner

Well my heart is beating hard
And I’m off with a shot at the start
And my legs tremble from strain
But by the finish line I’ll drain

So won’t you run to me tonight?
Tonight let’s not talk about next summer
Cause I’ll only ever be a middle distance runner

Well I’m so proud tonight
Of the woman you’ve become
And I’m just too tired to fight
So my darling, I’ll succumb

But you’ll have to run to me tonight
Tonight I will love you forever
But I’ll only ever be a middle distance runner
