Again with the song that makes me feel like running towards someone, similar to Taio Cruz’s Telling the World. While Taio’s may be for a chic flick movie, Simple Plan’s Jet Lag hits closer to home. The lyrics represent loved ones physically apart from each other. In the Philippines, this is often the case with either the husband, or the wife (or any member of the family), leaving for another country to work in order to sustain the family.
Miles apart, at different time zones, they try to make it work. I can only imagine the joy they feel to be able to be together and be whole again. That’s the feeling I get this time of running towards someone. Not to chase after them but to be with them again, of missing them, and of coming home.
It also doesn’t hurt that the song is upbeat enough to power walk and/or jog to. 🙂
Jet Lag by Simple Plan feat. Natasha Bedingfield
Added bonus, I found this acoustic version of the song, also sang by Simple Plan during a radio station interview. I’ve cut it so you start already from when they began singing. But if you want to watch the whole video, you can always rewind it.
