We Run Things

Album: The Pursuit (2009)
  • We run things another way,
    We run things another way,
    Getting love if you can love (yeah)
    Getting love if you can love (yeah)
    Nothing left for you to say,
    Trouble melts and residence stays,
    Don't stop 'cause it's getting tense now.

    We run things another way,
    We run things another way,
    I draw a face on a dartboard (yeah)
    I wear it out like a record (yeah)
    Tired eyes an' razor blades,
    Tearing through a radio wave,
    Don't stop 'cause it's getting tense now

    'Cause I'm trying to hold on to something, yeah,
    'Cause if you let me,
    I'll show ya
    I'll do it, can ya' hear it?
    We run things another way,
    We run things another way,
    We run things another way,
    We run things, another way (yeah)

    We run things another way,
    We run things another way,
    Get on top 'cause I'm falling (yeah)
    I never stop with your calling (yeah)
    I shiver now I feel the raise,
    I batter time and wasted days,
    Don't stop if ya wanna tense now

    'Cause I'm trying to hold on to something, yeah,
    'Cause if you let me,
    I'll show ya
    I'll do it, can ya' hear it?
    We run things another way,
    We run things,
    I'm trying to hold on to something, yeah,
    'Cause if you let me,
    I'll show ya
    I'll do it, can ya' hear it?
    We run things another way,
    We run things another way,
    We run things another way,
    We run things, another way (yeah) Writer/s: KARL GORDON, JAMIE CULLUM, BEN CULLUM
