It seems like yesterday
But it was long ago
Janey was lovely she was the queen of my nights
There in the darkness with the radio, playin' low
The secrets that we shared
Mountains that we moved
Caught like a wildfire out of control
'Til there was nothing left to burn and nothing left to prove

And I remember what she said to me
How she swore that it never would end
I remember how she held me, oh so tight
Wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then

Against the wind
We were running against the wind
We were young and strong and we were running
Against the wind

The years rolled slowly past
And I found myself alone
Surrounded by strangers I thought were my friends
Found myself further and further from my home
I guess I lost my way
There were oh so many roads
I was living to run and running to live
Never worrying about paying or even how much I owed

Moving eight miles a minute for months at a time
Breaking all of the rules that we bent
Began to find myself searching
Searching for shelter again and again

Against the wind
I was running against the wind
I found myself seeking shelter
Against the wind

But those drifter's days are past me now
I've got so much more to think about
Deadlines and commitments
What to leave in, what to leave out

Against the wind
I'm still running against the wind
Well I'm older now but still running
Against the wind
Against the wind
Against the wind....

anthem of my brothers life who died 7 yrs ago, he always said he loved this song. played at his funeral and every time I hear it now I smile but with tears in my eyes. miss him and this is a great song from a master songwriter.

What's snap chat? This song was written on paper, printed on vinyl and played by instruments, sang, loved and cherished by people well before an iPhone was ever even envisaged. But welcome new generation. At least it's old bob your listening to. Could be ariana grande I suppose.....

Ouvi muito esta música no passado e não dei o devido valor. Hoje, quando a escuto, me lembro que não dei valor àquela época como hoje dou. Mas, se dou o devido valor a algo hoje é porque tenha noção do que significa a perda e ainda bem que posso ouvir sua trilha sonora novamente...

Bob is one of the most under-rated artists.  Great song Bob!

I love it when my kids ask to listen to my old records and come back and say you are still with it dad, 61 years old now, seen a lot in my life, now all good, but it's been fun and a great trip!! Enjoy your trip!
