running

 

words and music by

john greene

 

it's hard to tell if you're listening to me

i can't reach, what you want me to be

but i'll try to be here for a while

might make you cry, might make you smile

 

i've seen, more than one man should see

of a world losing its sanity

and you want me to stay here with you

maybe lose, all i've been through

 

can't stop running, paying the price

can't stop running, to save my life

 

i've tried, all my life to be free

and to be what i wanted to be

running fast, running straight

running strong, running on, running on, running on

 

can't stop running, paying the price

can't stop running, to save my life
