Runnin'

Album: Trespassing (2012)
  • Steel to my tremblin' lips
    How did the night ever get like this?
    One shot and the whiskey goes down, down, down
    Bottom of the bottle hits
    Waking up my mind as I throw a fit
    The breakin’ is takin’ me down, down, down

    My heart’s beating faster
    I know what I’m after

    I’ve been standing here my whole life
    Everything I’ve seen twice
    Now it's time I realized
    It's spinning back around now
    On this road I'm crawlin'
    Save me 'cause I'm fallin'
    Now I can't seem to breathe right
    'Cause I keep runnin' runnin' runnin' runnin'
    Runnin' runnin' runnin' runnin'
    Runnin' from my heart

    'Round and around I go
    Addicted to the numb livin’ in the cold
    The higher, the lower, the down, down, down
    Sick of being tired and sick
    And ready for another kind of fix
    The damage is damning me down, down, down

    My heart’s beating faster
    I know what I’m after

    I’ve been standing here my whole life
    Everything I’ve seen twice
    Now it’s time I realized
    It’s spinning back around now
    On this road I’m crawlin’
    Save me 'cause I’m fallin’
    Now I can’t seem to breathe right
    'Cause I keep runnin' runnin' runnin' runnin'
    Runnin' runnin' runnin' runnin'
    Runnin' from my heart

    Oh, I’m coming alive
    Oh, I’ll wake up now and live
    Oh, I’m coming alive
    A life that’s always been a dream
    I’ll wake up now and live

    I’ve been standing here my whole life
    My heart’s beating faster
    I know what I’m after

    I’ve been standing here my whole life
    Everything I’ve seen twice
    Now it’s time I realized
    It’s spinning back around now
    On this road I’m crawlin’
    Save me 'cause I’m fallin’
    Now I can’t seem to breathe right
    'Cause I keep runnin' runnin' runnin' runnin'
    Runnin' runnin' runnin' runnin'
    Runnin' from my heart
    'Cause I keep runnin' runnin' runnin' runnin'
    Runnin' runnin' runnin' runnin'
    Runnin' from my heart Writer/s: Cathy Lee Gravitt, Robert L Marvin, Adam Lambert, David Lee Marshall, Frederick Louis Williams
