Lyrics

The Runner

Written By: Jenn Stout

The days pass me by
Like a slow moving train
With every squeak in the track
It whispers your name

A thousand lovers
Have died in your eyes
I've watched the flame burn out
Without a flicker in your light

Hmm hmmm
But I guess it's safe to say
You ain't changing your mind
Hmm hmmm
And I guess it's safe to say
You were never really mine
Hmm hmm
Cause you've built that wall so high
No one could ever climb
Hmm hmm
But your flame is so hot
It burns me every time

You were right about a lot
But you're wrong about me
Because I see everything in you
That no one else can see

Like how you fight like hell
To act like you don't care
The irony of your love
Is more than I can bare

Hmm hmmm
But I guess it's safe to say
You ain't changing your mind
Hmm hmmm
And I guess it's safe to say
You were never really mine
Hmm hmm
Cause you've built that wall so high
No one could ever climb
Hmm hmm
But your flame is so hot
It burns me every time

Tell me now dear
Why can't you see?
That just because it hurts like hell
Love is not the enemy

It will fold you in
It will push you away
But if you only learn to let it in
You'll be happy one day

Hmm hmmm
But I guess it's safe to say
You ain't changing your mind
Hmm hmmm
And I guess it's safe to say
You were never really mine
Hmm hmm
Cause you've built that wall so high
No one could ever climb
Hmm hmm
But your flame is so hot
It burns me every time

It burns me every time
It burns me every time
Hmm hmm
