I Can't Outrun You

  • Ninety-five down the interstate
    Mile high on a jet plane
    Desert road or a downtown train
    It's all the same
    I can't outrun you

    Now I can move to another town
    And nobody to ask where you are now
    LA 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

    Now I've had chances with a girl or two
    But all I ever saw was you
    Holdin' my hand
    Kissin' my face
    I guess some pictures 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

    I can't outrun you, no
    I can't outrun you, no
    I can't outrun

    Thought there might just come a time
    Wouldn't regret tellin' you goodbye
    But lookin' back
    Should'a realized
    I can't outrun you [Repeat: x3] Writer/s: BEN GLOVER, JOE LEATHERS, KYLE JACOBS, KYLE CHRISTOPHER JACOBS

  • Susan from Acworth, GaSorry for the correction, but Trace was shot by his 2nd wife, not his first. Just read his book-again!
  • Trudy from Peoria, IlI've been there; I feel his pain and mine all over again when I listen to this song.
    Thanks, Trace, for your depth and sincerity.
  • Matt from Houston, TxHe got shot in the heart by his first wife and shot in the knee on a seperate occasion.that's probably what he meant by "manifested into physical pain"
