Now I Run
Shannon Noll Lyrics


Tell me how the circle ends
There's no beginning
Everything that came before
Will come round again
And I look in the mirror
My fathers eyes look back at me

He gave me a road to choose
He gave me freedom
And I pray I'm strong enough
To walk in his shoes
And I hope that I become
Half the man he'd want me to be

Cos I feel you guiding me
Showin' me the way when I'm misdirected
I know your not here but I feel connected


[Chorus]
Cos everything that I am
Comes from a better man
And all that Ive said and done
Cant rewrite my history
Right there for all to see
Im just my fathers son
Taught me to walk, now I run
Now I run

Sometimes when I lose myself
In my weakness
I can feel the touch of his
Unmistakable hands
And they're pushing me forward
Back into the circle again

And I hope my son sees in me
The kind of man that he was to me

[Chorus]

And everything that I am
comes from a better man
And all that Ive said and Ive done
Cant rewrite my history
Right there for all to see
I'm just my fathers son
Taught me to walk, now I run
I run

My father passed away in hospital a week after a massive heart attack in 2017. He was a great role model to me, and I try to live the values he taught me. I miss you, Dad.

No. 5

EDIT: Little did I know that merely 2 weeks after posting this comment I’d lose my dad... and it’s a more horrible feeling than I thought.. fly high Dad.
