The Runner

Album: Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost - Part 2 (2019)
  • Shadow, see how far I go
    (Step by step I'll keep it up, I won't slow, I gotta go)
    Through the embers, through the rows
    (Every shadow step I take, I'll make sure that I won't break)
    Show them all just what I know
    (While the years they come and go, I won't let myself get slow)
    'Cause they all just come and go
    (Every step that I will take, I'll make sure that I won't break)

    Oh, if I fall down, fall down
    Then I know to keep on running
    Oh, if I fall down, fall down
    Then I know to keep on running

    And if it hurts don't let it show
    (Step by step I'll keep it up, I won't slow I gotta go)
    While the seasons come and go
    (Every shadow step I take, I'll make sure that I won't break)
    Shadow chiaroscuro
    (While the years they come and go, I won't let myself get slow)

    When I, when I fall down, fall down
    Then I know to keep on running
    Oh, when I fall down, fall down
    Won't you come to keep me running?
    Yeah, I keep on running
    Well, I keep on running

    Loneliness of the long distance runner
    Shadow, come closer, so I'll go on further
    Loneliness of the long distance runner
    Shadow, come closer, so I'll go on further
    Loneliness of the long distance runner
    Shadow, come closer, so I'll go on further
    Loneliness of the long distance runner
    Shadow, come closer, so I'll go on further

    Oh, when I fall down, fall down
    Then I know to keep on running
    Oh, If I fall down, fall down
    Then I know to keep on running (whoa)

    Fall down, when I slow down (keep on running)
    Slow down (and we keep on running)
    Oh, slow down (and we keep on running)
    When I fall down, oh (keep on running)
    We keep on running
    And we keep on running
    And we keep on running Writer/s: Edwin Thomas Congreave, Jack William Bevan, James Andrew Smith, Yannis Barnabas Emanuel Philippakis
