Music Discovery Monday: Clarence Coffee Jr.

I stumbled across this song while watching a movie with my kids. It’s featured on the HOME soundtrack. It’s become a regular dance party jam in our house. If I were still creating soundtracks for spin class, this would definitely make the list. I’ve already added it to one of my running mixes. Not only is the beat insidious, the lyrics are quite prophetic.

 

 

Run to Me—Clarence Coffee Jr.

I lost my heart inside a dream
Of diamond rings and fine o’ things
We never die, forever young
Fell for you once, I’ll dive again
Through heaven ‘n’ hell against the wind
We love like simple people do

Every night I close my eyes
I see the sun and you’re my paradise
And when your lost and go too far
I’ll be the light you run to in the dark
I’ll be the light you run to in the dark

Your silver tongue is full of lies
With tricks and thrills and Bambi eyes
I pray you’ll never feel this way
Show me the things I won’t goodbye
Like wolves we run into the night
Our lives will never be the same

Every night I close my eyes
I see the sun and you’re my paradise
And when your lost and go too far
I’ll be the light you run to in the dark

Every night I close my eyes
I see your face and I’m right awake
And when we say our last goodbye
I’ll be the one t’ say I hope you stay

I lost my heart inside a dream
Of diamond rings and fine o’ things
We love like simple people do
