I Run for Life [#]
by Melissa Etheridge



It;s been years since they told her about it
The darkness her body possesed
And the scars are still there in the mirror\
Everyday that she gets herself dressed

For the pain is miles and miles behind her
And the fear is now a docile beast
If you ask her why she is still running
She'll tell you it makes her complete

i run for hope
i run to feel
i run for the truth
For all that is real
i run for your mother,your sister,your wife
i run for you and me my friend
I RUN FOR LIFE

It;s a blur since they told me about it
How the darkness had taken it's toll
So they cut into my skin'
And they cut into my body
But they'll never get a piece of my soul

And now i'm still learning the lesson
To awake when i hear the call
And if you ask me why i am still running
I'll tell you i run for us all

i run for hope
i run to feel
i run for the truth
For all that is real
i run for your mother,your sister,your wife
i run for you and me my friend
I RUN FOR LIFE

And someday if they tell you about it
If the darkness knocks on your door
Rememeber her, rememebr me
We will be running
As we have before
Running for answers
Running for more

i run for hope
i run to feel
i run for the truth
For all that is real
i run for your mother,your sister,your wife
i run for you and me my friend

i run for hope
i run to feel
i run for the truth
For all that is real
i run for your mother,your sister,your daughter,your wife
for you and me my friend

i run for your mother,your sister,your wife
i run for you and me my friend
I RUN FOR LIFE

for all the battlers, survivors and those lost to breast cancer
( i believe thats what this song was written for/about)
