Tunes on Tuesday

This week the music is a bit different... In honor of my track kids going to State... shout outs to *L*,*K*,*T*,*L*,*C*,*M*,*B*,*L* you totally deserve it!!

So this song is one that I use to pump me up when I run. All you runners out there, I think you'll like it too. The beat is a great one to run too, and I think a lot of runners can relate to it after they have worked so hard to reach their goal and win, but was out done. It makes you want to run harder and come home with the "cup"

"The Distance" by CAKE {click here to hear the music}

Reluctantly crouched at the starting line,
Engines pumping and thumping in time.
The green light flashes, the flags go up.
Churning and burning, they yearn for the cup.
They deftly maneuver and muscle for rank,
Fuel burning fast on an empty tank.
Reckless and wild, they pour through the turns.
Their prowess is potent and secretly stearn.
As they speed through the finish, the flags go down.
The fans get up and they get out of town.
The arena is empty except for one man,
Still driving and striving as fast as he can.
The sun has gone down and the moon has come up,
And long ago somebody left with the cup.
But he's driving and striving and hugging the turns.
And thinking of someone for whom he still burns.

He's going the distance.
He's going for speed.
She's all alone In her time of need.
Because he's racing and pacing and plotting the course,
He's fighting and biting and riding on his horse,
He's going the distance.

No trophy, no flowers, no flashbulbs, no wine,
He's haunted by something he cannot define.
Bowel-shaking earthquakes of doubt and remorse,
Assail him, impale him with monster-truck force.
In his mind, he's still driving, still making the grade.
She's hoping in time that her memories will fade.
Cause he's racing and pacing and plotting the course,
He's fighting and biting and riding on his horse.

The sun has gone down and the moon has come up,
And long ago somebody left with the cup.
But he's striving and driving and hugging the turns.
And thinking of someone for whom he still burns.

Cause he's going the distance. He's going for speed.
She's all alone In her time of need.
Because he's racing and pacing and plotting the course,
He's fighting and biting and riding on his horse.
He's racing and pacing and plotting the course,
He's fighting and biting and riding on his horse.
He's going the distance.He's going for speed.
He's going the distance.

Good Luck Buena kids, you've worked hard and I'm really proud of you!!

I think you ought to try Madonna's 4 minutes (Featuring Justin Timberlake and Timbaland). "You only got 4 minutes to save the world." I think it's an appropriate distance track song. ;) Congrats on State!
