I Can't Outrun You

Album: Just Feels Good (2013)
  • Ninety five down the interstate
    Mile high on a jet plane
    A desert road or a downtown train
    It's all the same, I can't outrun you

    I can move to another town
    Where nobody'd ask where you are now
    L.A. or Mexico
    No matter where I go, I can't outrun you

    You're in my heart, you're in my mind
    Everywhere ahead, everywhere behind
    Every turn I take,
    You're right around the bend

    It's like your ghost is chasing me
    When I'm awake, when I'm asleep
    There's a part of you in every part of me
    And I can't outrun you
    I can't outrun you

    I had a chance with a boy or two
    But all I ever saw was you
    You're holding my hand, kissing my face
    I guess some memories never fade

    You're in my heart, you're in my mind
    Everywhere ahead, everywhere behind
    Every turn I take,
    You're right around the bend

    It's like your ghost is chasing me
    When I'm awake, when I'm asleep
    There's a part of you in every part of me
    And I can't outrun you
    I can't outrun you

    Whoa, whoa

    I thought there just might come a time
    I wouldn't regret telling you goodbye
    If there was I'll never know
    No matter where I go I can't outrun you Writer/s: BEN GLOVER, JOE LEATHERS, KYLE JACOBS, KYLE CHRISTOPHER JACOBS
