"If I Run" as written by and Dan/slichter Wilson....
Morning comes and morning goes
Now it's me against the sun
The day goes by and darkness grows
And it's over before it's done

Well I know it'll be alright if I just get on the road
If I run I can free my worried mind
Yeah I know on the day I die I will lose my heavy load
But I wouldn't want to leave you behind

All my time keeps creeping on
Now I've grown into a man
But Mr. Child still wants to run
From the cradle to the van

Keep thinking it'll be alright if I just get on the road
If I run I can free my worried mind
Keep thinking of the day I die when I lose my heavy load
But I wouldn't want to leave you behind.

    General CommentHow could no one have heard this song before? This was the song that made them famous, back in 1996. During that time, I went to PSU at the time and they'd play this song over and over on the most popular station at the time, 99.1 (which I think was called "Quck Rock"). I definately like this song much better than "Closing Time".

    General Commenti concur 1977. maybe just let the few people who've heard (and remember) it enjoy the song and let the rest of the world listen to pre-programmed crap on the top 40 stations
