Runrig - Running To The Light Lyrics




Running round the sacred mountain
The rushing stream
Feel the power
In everything
By the water where the air is clear
Surrender everything

Old hearts grow younger again
They promise bring
The greenest plants are tender
They're full of sap in spring
Empty the places of the mind
Running to the light
Running to the light

Those who stride too far too soon
Will not hold pace
Only the calm
Will win the race
Through the forest, the sea of mountain pine
Surrender everything

Only those who
Greatness see in little things
Worthy are the simple
They're happy in their ways
Self will wither out of sight
Running to the light
Running to the light

Arise soul
Soar above the singing river
Go lying down
Into the ground
Quickened by the stream
When all is said and done
The race moves on

Running, running

    The music of Runrig must never be forgotten and be kept alive by generations to come what a journey it has been.

  23. Jade Storm

    I didn't know that about Dr. Laurel Clark. That is so awesome and it's such a beautiful song. Thank you for sharing! Very touching! I guess you can say this song is literally out-of-this-world.

  24. David Fenwick

    No, Laura Clark was a flight surgeon on the Columbia.

    astrase2

    No again David. Dr Laurel Clark was a US Navy Captain; she was a biologist aboard the doomed Columbia shuttle.
    It's all available in the NASA reports.

  25. María Teresa Ortega Piga

    ¡¡NO ME CANSO DE ESCUCHARLA!! "Corriendo a (hacia) la luz" ¡¡BELLÍSIMA!!

  26. María Teresa Ortega Piga

    ¡¡NO ME CANSO DE ESCUCHARLA!! "Corriendo a la luz".......

  27. María Teresa Ortega Piga

  28. Vicky Pearson

    Hi folks, just awesome, with Bettina Stegmann's and Duncan Chisholm's gorgeous fiddle playing, oh to be able to play the fiddle like that!!! Gorgeous singing, as well, Rory's mellow voice sounds great!!! Absolutely beautiful track.... very moving...take care, all the best! Cheers, Vicky xxx

    David Fenwick

    You are right, Rory is fantastic! Donnie left the band in 1997, before this song was recorded. Donnie will always be missed, but Runrig continues!

    This is so beautiful and so sad. What I remember most about that disaster was the school teacher and her excited class. I believe her name was Christa McAuliffe ...
    Thanks, David.

    John Morris

    It was Laurel Clark on Columbia that died loving Runrig and used this track as her wake up call on the mission.

    Michael Swärdh

    The school teacher Christa McAuliffe was on Challenger 1986, Dr Laurel Clark who was a great Runrig fan was on Columbia 2003.

  30. José Alonso

    Genial. Gracias.

  33. nightw4tchman

    I always loved this track; and runrig too. But finding out Laurel Clark used this as her wake up song adds a whole new depth to the song.

  37. Ben Broichan Kerr-Jennings

  38. David Balfour

    Amazing

  39. Mairi Campbell

    My then boyfriend and I ended up dancing to one of Runrig's song while in a store in Oban. I had to buy the CD they were playing. Since that time in 2009 we've gotten married and had a friend from Hamilton Scotland sing Every River at our wedding for us... yes the song we had danced to the first time hearing Runrig. David you are correct summers in the highlands are amazing and so is our Pacific Northwest. Thank you for posting this.

  40. Donna MacCrossan

    You have a great channel so I just subbed to you. I use to live in Seattle but live in Olympia now. I have never been to Scotland but always been my dream to visit or even move there. I just found out about this band a few months ago and so glad I did. They are fantastic. I made a Runrig playlist because I love their music so much. My favorite is "The Greatest Flame" but they are all great. My grandfather on my father's side was born in Scotland so I am Scottish/Irish.

  41. Gerald Gallagher

    Awesome tune awesome band.

  42. Pablo Berrade

    A volar.

  43. Ryan Bailey

  45. joseph curran

    as an irishman went to see U2at celtic park but i must say ;runrig are just world class

  46. David Fenwick

    If you like Runrig and Skye, you might like my new video with Runrig's past lead singer. Check out Isle of Skye - Donnie Munro. Hope you can find it.

  47. sleary7878

    This is a perfect blend of Runrig and Wolfstone (Duncan Chisholm - Violins). Scottish music does not get much better than this

  48. Krister Jonsson

    Good song thinking of Linda Lampenius

  49. TourAbsurd

    Was just introduced to Runrig while visiting Skye. So moved by their music. This song and the Book of Golden Stories will forever be associated with the Highlands for me now.

  50. Issac Ox

    This was Originally scripted as the theme tune to gladiator
