Track Name: The Runner
I’m running on empty trying to take a long view
hoping that my happiness is on my way toward you
run out of feelings, nothing left for you
I made a mess of them with somebody before you

I’ve wasted my heart throwing love down a wishing well
now I can tell when the bottom’s near
so I keep running and the further that I go
the more I love to be on my own

I’ll stick around for the fun, but baby I’m a runner
Coz you might be the one or just another lover
I’m here now for the fun, but baby I’m a runner
Coz you could be the one or just another lover

I’m running on wishes promises of all new
beginnings and everything I felt when I first saw you
running on the feeling that just around the corner
is the pay off for all of the hell I went through for ya
I’ve wasted love throwing my heart at a lost cause
and all because it seemed easier
but I kept running and the further that I got
the more I realized that it’s not
