NIGHT RUNNER

Heading out for unknown places, wanting no familiar faces
trying hard to leave no traces in the night
I come home to find you packing, I ask you, "Is there something lacking?"
You say yes, but I know you're acting, your eyes don't lie 

Chorus
Night runner, night runner, don't you run this time
you say you'll never be hurt again,
but you're running will never end
night runner, night runner, don't run this time 

Do you think that I'm so blind that I can't see what's on your mind
you don't want to leave but you're afraid to stay
hurt so many times before by someone walking out your door
now you do the walking, it's safer that way

Chorus
Night runner, night runner, don't you run this time
it's the hurt you don't want to know
that always makes you the first to go
night runner, night runner, stay right here with me 

I never said I'd never leave you, although I knew you had the need to know
but try and understand me too
I thought I promise left unspoken, would hurt me less if it was broken,
I was wrong, you see I'm just as scared as you 

Chorus
Night runner, night runner, don't you run this time
you'll be running for all your years
from the shadow of your own fears
night runner, night runner, run on back to me
