Old Friends, Great Friends

I'm home.

I'm home.

It's worth repeating a thousand times. my Canadian comrads doing the overseas thing like me... they all know... everyone knows... this... is... home.

To the gang tonight... to everyone over e-mail, phone, postcard, telegraph, bat signal, piegon carrier, whatever... this... is home. You can take the Canadian out of Canada, but you can't take the Canada out of the Canadian...

My buddy puzzled to me tonight: "your blog is cool, but why do you put the lyrics in there?". Well the feeling I have right now... at 6am in the morning after a full day including Ottawa, Toronto, Brampton, Waterloo, Kitchener and everyone/where inbetween... that's why.

One song... Snow Patrol - Run. Buy it, download it, borrow it, whatever... then you'll know why. Thanks to my friends, you are priceless and with all our flaws, crap and bullshit we get into with each other (even you Grizzy puking on the door tonight!), I wouldn't trade you for anything... ab-so fucking lute-ly nothing!

Enjoy:

I'll sing it one last time for you
Then we really have to go
You've been the only thing that's right
In all I've done

And I can barely look at you
But every single time I do
I know we'll make it anywhere
Away from here

Light up, light up
As if you have a choice
Even if you cannot hear my voice
I'll be right beside you dear

Louder, louder
And we'll run for our lives
I can hardly speak I understand
Why you can't raise your voice to say

To think I might not see those eyes
Makes it so hard not to cry
And as we said our long goodbyes
I nearly did

Light up, light up
As if you have a choice
Even if you cannot hear my voice
I'll be right beside you dear

Have heart my dear
We're bound to be afraid
Even if it's just for a few days
Makin' up for all that's less

Light up, light up
As if you have a choice
Even if you cannot hear my voice
I'll be right beside you dear

We take it for granted... until we go overseas and miss it. Got my Timmy Horton's today... not rubbing it in at all, but you're coffee's hot and waiting for ya... see you soon...
