A co-worker shared a live version of this song with me recently and, while Mr. Nutini, is still a very young artist, he’s got some skillz and sings this version with the same emotion and strength that a David Gray, John Mayer or Jason Mraz would give.

Lyrics:

Slow down, lie down
Remember it’s just you and me
Don’t sell out, bow out
Remember how this used to be

I just want you closer
Is that alright?
Baby, let’s get closer tonight

Grant my last request and just let me hold you
Don’t shrug your shoulders
Lay down beside me
Sure I can accept that we’re going nowhere
But one last time let’s go there
Lay down beside me

Oh, and I’ve found, that I’m bound
To wander down that one way road.
And I realize all about your lies
And I’m no wiser than the fool I was before.

I just want you closer,
Is that alright?
Baby let’s get closer tonight

Grant my last request and just let me hold you
Don’t shrug your shoulders
Lay down beside me
Sure I can accept that we’re going nowhere
But one last time let’s go there
Oh lay down beside me

Oh, baby, baby, baby,
Tell me how can…how can this be wrong?

Grant my last request and just let me hold you
Don’t shrug your shoulders
Lay down beside me
Sure I can accept that we’re going nowhere
But one last time let’s go there
Lay down beside me (x2)

Grant my last request and just let me hold you

Yeah, lay down beside me.

One last time let’s go there,
Lay down beside me

In training for a triathlon, there are a few things you just gotta do. Swim, bike, run. These are the legs and the training has to support event day. So I swim, bike and run.

LakeHOf the three legs, running sucks the most. I’m 6’2″ and I still carry with me about 15 extra pounds of winter weight. So running wreaks havoc on my system. But, it’s getting easier.

Today, for example, on a beautiful, crisp winter morning, I circled Lakes Harriet and Calhoun near downtown Minneapolis. Six and a half miles in just over an hour. Not a time to brag about, but that is the longest distance I’ve traveled yet this year on these legs.

Running may not be my forte, but on a great training morning who am I to complain?
