While I powder my nose, he will powder his gums
And if I try to get close, he is already gone
I don't know where he's going, I don't know where he's been
But he is restless at night, he has horrible dreams
So we lay in the dark, 'cause we've got nothing to say
Just the beating of hearts like two drums in the grey
I don't know what we're doing, I don't know what we've done
But the fire is coming, so I think we should run
I think we should run, run, run, run
Run, run, run, run
Run, run, run, run

While I put on my shoes, he will button his coat
And we will step outside, checking that the coast is clear
On both sides, we don't want to be seen, no this is suicide
But you can't see the ropes
And I won't tell my mother, it's better she don't know
And he won't tell his folks, 'cause they're already ghosts
So we'll just keep each other as safe as we can
Until we reach the border, until we make our plan
To run, run, run, run
To run, run, run, run
To run, run, run, run

Will you stay with me my love, for another day
'Cause I don't want to be alone, when I'm in this state
Will you stay with me my love, 'til we're old and grey
I don't want to be alone, when these bones decay
Run, run, run, run
Run, run, run, run
Run, run, run, run

Run, run, run, run
Run, run, run, run
Run, run, run, run

While I powder my nose, he will powder his gums
And if I try to get close, he is already gone
I don't know what we're doing, I don't know what we've done
But the fire is coming, so I think we should run
