19th Ave New York, NY 95822, USA

too tired to run

face the darkness
run from the light
one plus one isn’t always two
listen to screams
scream into whispers
feeling confusion through and through

stop and stare
closing my eyes
i never saw so much before
at a distance
too close to me
i thought there would be more

never in a million years could i have seen the distance
shadows falling around all over me as i run
where would i go
lord where would i go
where my shadows could never catch up to me
never in a million years could i have seen the distance
that i have left in front of me
where would i go
lord where would i go
where my shadows could never catch up to me

turn on the light
too tired to run
i’ll sit and wonder what to do
listen to wind
whispers in my dreams
feeling content through and through

never in a million years could i have seen the distance
shadows falling around all over me as i run
where would i go
lord where would i go
where my shadows could never catch up to me
never in a million years could i have seen the distance
that i have left in front of me
where would i go
lord where would i go
where my shadows could never catch up to me

turn on the light
too tired to run
feeling content through and through
