Running on

Its been quite some time since I've updated this page. A lot has changed since the last post I made. The last entry was posted from the terrace of my lovely Chennai home. Quite a lot things have changed(quite fast) since then. I've moved a couple of timezones to the east and life is going pretty fine. I've always wanted to write detailed entries of what I'm up-to( you know....with life). But it turns out I'm a lousy(lazy too) writer. There is something that I realized during my feeble attempts to abstract my state of existence into a single blog post. There is always a song that does the job far better than I could have ever done. So here goes!!. The track is "Running on empty" by "Jackson Browne". Replace the 65 in the song with 2005 and 69 with 2009 and it fits ;)

Looking out at the road rushing under my wheels

Looking back at the years gone by like so many summer fields

In sixty-five I was seventeen and running up one-on-one

I don't know where I'm running now, I'm just running on

Running on-running on empty

Running on-running blind

Running on-running into the sun

But I'm running behind

Gotta do what you can just to keep your love alive

Trying not to confuse it with what you do to survive

In sixty-nine I was twenty-one and I called the road my own

I don't know when that road turned into the road I'm on

Running on-running on empty

Running on-running blind

Running on-running into the sun

But I'm running behind

Everyone I know, everywhere I go

People need some reason to believe

I don't know about anyone but me

If it takes all night, that'll be all right

If I can get you to smile before I leave

Looking out at the road rushing under my wheels

I don't know how to tell you all just how crazy this life feels

I look around for the friends that I used to turn to to pull me through

Looking into their eyes I see them running too

Running on-running on empty

Running on-running blind

Running on-running into the sun

But I'm running behind

Honey you really tempt me

You know the way you look so kind

I'd love to stick around but I'm running behind

You know I don't even know what I'm hoping to find

Running into the sun but I'm running behind
