I got troubles that I can't hide
So many and it's turning on the inside out
I know a woman's nature
Is nothing you can save here
Me, I run every time

We got two tickets but the one way
And I went with it so I can't say no
I lit a fuse I can't stop
I opened doors I can't lock
Still, I never meant to be this close

(Chorus)
And let it slip away
I keep stumbling till I finally miss the last train
Oh, she's ready
I'm not ready
I hear people go crazy for steady
But me, I run every time

So I told her get a head start
Like the last one I didn't have the heart
To tell her straight

I know how she'll recieve it
And I can't bear to see it
That's why I never meant to be this close

(Chorus)
And let it slip away
I keep stumbling till I finally miss the last train
Oh, she's ready
I'm not ready
I hear people go crazy for steady
But me, I run every time

And I hope she sees
It's not her, it's just me
And I'm so sorry
To be this close

(Chorus)
And let it slip away
I keep stumbling till I finally miss the last train
Oh, she's ready
I'm not ready
I hear people go crazy for steady
But me, I run every time

I'm close
And let it slip away
I keep dragging my feet till I finally miss the last train
Oh, she's ready
I'm not ready
I hear people go crazy for steady
But me, I run every time
I run every time
I run every time I'm close

    Wow, just great. He really puts into words an ongoing experience. Even if we don't experience these things for ourselves, he truly puts us in his shoes, and if we do, cathartic.
