Sarah
Alex G Lyrics


Sarah runs to feel the burning in her lungs
And clear her head
Do you know what Sarah meant?

When she said, you, be my guest
And keep the pace
To save your face
You'll never make the place
Why do you even run the race?

I can't be what you need
I am stuck in a dream
I am stuck in a dream

Don't you know
She's been here all along in a dream?
She belongs in a dream

Every day
I'll make promises that plague Sarah's heart
So I can watch her fall apart

'Cause I know when I break her down
We'll spit on all the happy clowns
That live around this sunny town
She loves me like a dog
And when we mess around
I'll let her know the truth I found
In my own hopeless hate
And every time I wake
I second guess the game I played
Did I make a mistake?

[Verse 1]
Sarah runs
To feel the burning in her lungs
And clear her head
Do you know what Sarah meant

[Verse 2]
When she said
You
Be my guest
And keep the pace
To save your face
You’ll never make
The place
Why do you even run the race?

[Verse 3]
I can't be
What you need
I am stuck in a dream
I am stuck in a dream

[Verse 4]
Don’t you know
She’s been here all along
In a dream?
She belongs in a dream

[Verse 5]
Every day
Ill make promises that play
On Sarah's heart
So I can watch her fall apart

[Verse 6]
Cause I know
When I break her down
We’ll spit on all the happy clowns
That live around this sunny town
She loves me like a dog
And when we mess around
I'll let her know the truth I found
In my own hopeless hate
And every time I wake
I second guess the game I played
Did i make a mistake?

As Tim Keller notes in his book the The Prodigal God the authors John Knowles in Separate Peace and John Steinbeck in East of Eden talk about saudade. He writes:

"In his novel A Separate Peace, John Knowle's central character discovers that summer mornings in New Hampshire give him "some feelings so hopelessly promising that I would fall back in my bed to guard against it... I wanted to break out crying from stabs of hopeless joy, or intolerable promise, or because those mornings were too full of beauty for me." In East of Eden, John Steinbeck similarly says of the mountains of central California that he wanted "to climb into their warm foothills almost as you want to climb into the lap of a beloved mother.""

As Keller shows C.S. Lewis identifies this feeling with the German word Sehnsucht. C.S. Lewis in his sermon "The weight of glory" (https://thevalueofsparrows.com/2012/12/09/sermon-the-weight-of-glory-by-c-s-lewis/) says:

"The books or the music in which we thought the beauty was located will betray us if we trust to them; it was not in them, it only came through them, and what came through them was longing. These things—the beauty, the memory of our own past—are good images of what we really desire; but if they are mistaken for the thing itself they turn into dumb idols, breaking the hearts of their worshipers. For they are not the thing itself; they are only the scent of a flower we have not found, the echo of a tune we have not heard, news from a country we have never yet visited."
[...]
Our life-long nostalgia, our longing to be reunited with something in the universe from which we feel cut off, to be on the inside of some door which we have always seen from the outside, is no mere neurotic fancy, but the truest index of our real situation."

God proving his infinite love for us through his son Jesus Christ, shows us that it is him we're cut off from.

Sarah runs to feel the burning in her lungs,
to clear her head
Do you know what Sarah meant
when she said, 
you be my guest
to keep the pace
to save your face
you’ll never make the place,
but do you even run the race?

I can’t be what you need
I am stuck in a dream
I am stuck in a dream
Don’t you know
she’s been here all along 
in a dream?
She belongs in a dream

Every day
I’ll make promises that plague Sarah’s heart
so I can watch her fall apart
'Cause I know when I break her down
we’ll spit on all the happy plans
that live around this sunny town
she loves me like a dog
and when we mess around
I’ll let her know the truth 
I can’t rely on hope with fate
and every time I wake
I second guess the game I play
that I make a mistake



I’m tired

Sarah runs to feel the burning in her lungs
To clear her head
Do you know what Sarah meant
When she said you be my guest
To keep the pace
To save your face
You'll never make the place
But do you even run the race?
I can't be what you need
I am stuck in a dream
I am stuck in a dream
Don't you know
She's been here
All along
In a dream?
She belongs in a dream
Every day
I'll make promises that plague
Sarah's heart
So I can watch her fall apart
'Cause I know when I break her down
We'll spit on all the happy plans
That live around this sunny town
She loves me like a dog
And when we mess around
I'll let her know the truth
I can't rely on hope with fate
And every time I wake
I second guess the game I play
Did I make a mistake?
