​Runnin'

This song is by Relient K and appears on the album Air for Free (2016).

Time to tie myself down to the train track
Gonna relax and try to explain that I rarely feel alive unless I'm running for my life
'Cause I'm over monsters under the bed
But I got suspicion in my head
But I've got the cure
But I'm not so sure that I've got the cure

So when I hear that whistle blow
That's when I know it's time to go

All I can do is run
All I can do is run
All I can do is run
Someone tell me where to
Someone tell me what from
All I can do is run

Time to tie myself down to the train track
Gonna relax and try to explain that I rarely feel alive unless I'm running for my life
'Cause I'm over monsters under the bed
But I got suspicion in my head
But I've got the cure
But I'm not so sure that I've got the cure

I can remember the days in my life
When my future looked bright
Back before mom had died
Before I heard dad coughing up blood in his room
And the doctor said "son, he'll be joining Him soon"
Everything changed, what was bright turned to bleak
Cause everyone seemed to get sick, 'cept for me
And my dad's final cough, where they carted me off
They stuck me in hell and they gave me a cross
And said "Son
The church is all you've got now, got now, son
So give your life to God now, God
My son, I know you're scared
I know you're young
Just say your prayers tonight
Cause nobody's gonna come
Cause no one loves an orphan"

I got an old wooden village house
And almost every day I'm running 'round the block
I got anything anybody could ever want, it's true

Baby, the cold made me move down south
And I forgot to wind the grandfather clock
I got anything anybody could ever want
So I'm spending my time all on you

I'm putting myself in your shoes
I'm putting myself in your shoes
I'm putting myself in your shoes, yeah
And I keep on running running, running, running, running, running, running on home to you
And I keep on running running, running, running, running, running

I got an old wooden village house
And almost every day I'm running 'round the block
I got anything anybody could ever want, it's true

Baby the cold made me move down south
And I forgot to wind the grandfather clock
I got anything anybody could ever want
So I'm spending my time all on you

I'm putting myself in your shoes
I'm putting my health to good use
I'm putting myself in your shoes, yeah
And I keep on running running, running, running, running, running, running on home to you
(Running, running, running, running, running)
(Running, running, running, running, running)
(Running, running, running, running, running)
And I keep on running running, running, running, running, running, running on home to you

Putting myself in you shoes
Putting myself in you shoes
Putting myself in you shoes
And I keep on running running, running, running, running, running, running on home to you
Putting myself in you shoes
Putting myself in you shoes
