And We Run

  • It burns into your heart, the darkness that you fear
    You were never free, and you never realized
    And love, is a word you've never heard
    Your heart is cold cause it burns, the desire to leave the mind

    Take your breath til nothing's left
    Stars of life upon your chest
    And I know you wherever you go

    And we run and we don't look back
    And we run til we've had enough
    And we run, tell me how to run
    And we run, til we break down
    And we run til we fall apart
    And we run til we've had enough

    Don't blink, you'll miss it
    Lift up your head. We gotta get gone
    Yeah, we outta here
    Don't blink, you'll miss it
    Lift up your head
    Too late, we gone
    Yeah, we outta here

    And we run, for this killing love
    And we run, tell me how it's enough
    And we run, far ahead we go

    I'ma break these chains, ran through the rain
    Never looked back, never quit, worked through the pain
    This blood in my veins run cold when I hate
    Give enough to keep sane but I never lose hope
    This is my time now, no time for tears to celebrate
    Put it in the air right now
    Never back down, you'll never wear my crown
    cause it weighs too much and I crush every motherfucking thing I touch
    This is what I've never loved so much
    Get involved what's the worst stand up
    Here my mic before I ever get far
    Man in lights, you lost all my trust
    Now it's time to face all of us
    Get in line just to spar with us
    And it feels so far from us, just take my hand and run

    And we run, for this killing love
    And we run, tell me how it's enough
    And we run, til we never don
    And we run til we fall apart
    And we run, til it's enough

    Yeah, we out of here

    Don't blink, you'll miss it
    Lift up your head
    We gotta get gone
    Yeah, we outta here
    Don't blink, you'll miss it
    Lift up your head
    Too late, we gone
    Yeah, we outta here

    And we run, for this killing love
    And we run, tell me how it's enough
    And we run, til we never don
    And we run til we fall apart
    And we run, til it's enough

    Don't blink, you'll miss it
    Lift up your head
    We gotta get gone
    Yeah, we outta here
    Don't blink, you'll miss it
    Lift up your head
    Too late, we gone
    Yeah, we outta here Writer/s: MARTIJN SPIERENBURG, ALVIN JOINER, SHARON DEN ADEL, ROBERT WESTERHOLT
