RUNNING

Written By: Billy Nolan

Lately when I close my eyes
I see myself running
just a kid with a fire inside
yeah and I'm running
I payed no mind
I payed no heed
I knew it all
I can still hear my mother plead
"Billy, please, before you fall,
stop running"

In the summer of my years
man I was running
I could outrun the pain and tears
if I kept running
I saved my heart
let nothing inside
a solid wall
that's when I learned to take it all in my stride
and I took it all
and kept running

Some things overtake your life
and keep you running
the house
the car
the kids
the wife
they keep you running
you pay the bills
work till you bleed
at the local mall
even when you believe you have all you need
you ain't got it all
you keep running

(repeat 1st verse & end)

SOMETHING MORE

Written By: Billy Nolan

What makes me think I could rule the world
I could fool the world for a minute
What makes me believe I’m not a clown
When God knows that I’ve been it
Well, it’s you
You’re the reason I know there’s something more
But take it away
And I’m no better than before

What makes me do the things I do
When I choose what I’m after
What makes me see when I’ve been wrong
Yet never lose the laughter
Well, it’s you
You’re the reason I know there’s something more
But take it away
And I’m no better than before

What makes me think that I could be anything more than them
What fills my soul with the purest joy
When I discover that I AM
Well, it’s you
You’re the reason I know there’s something more
But take it away
And I’m no better than before
