Run Every Time

  • I got troubles that I can’t hide
    So many and it’s turning me on inside out
    I know a woman’s nature
    There’s nothing you can save here
    Me, I run every time

    We got two tickets but they're one way
    And I went with it so I can’t say no
    I lit a fuse I can’t stop
    I opened doors I can’t lock
    Still, I never meant to be this close

    And let it slip away
    I keep stumbling till I finally miss the last train
    Ooh, she’s ready, I’m not ready
    I hear people go crazy for steady
    But me, I run every time

    So I told her get a head start
    Like the last one I didn’t have the heart
    To tell her straight
    I know how she’ll receive it
    And I can’t bear to see it
    That’s why I never meant to be this close

    And let it slip away
    I keep stumbling till I finally miss the last train
    Ooh, she’s ready, I’m not ready
    I hear people go crazy for steady
    But me, I run every time

    And I hope she sees
    It’s not her, it’s just me
    And I’m so sorry
    To be this close

    And let it slip away
    I keep stumbling till I finally miss the last train
    Ooh, she’s ready, I’m not ready
    I hear people go crazy for steady
    But me, I run every time

    I’m close and let it slip away
    I keep dragging my feet till I finally miss the last train
    Ooh, she’s ready, I’m not ready
    I hear people go crazy for steady
    But me, I run every time
    I run every time
    I run every time I’m close Writer/s: ANDREW FRAMPTON, GAVIN DEGRAW
