If I could wake my crooked heart
If I was there right from the start
To feel what it was like to be turned on

If you could fly the battling wind
To miss the mark correct within
If your wish came true -- your dreams made real.

Running for cover
Running to hide

If I could be the walls of man
To rest my head and trust the plan
And fighting like a child to get my way

If I could see the garden place
Before the fall, would things have changed?
I wasn't there, and neither were you
But I take the blame, as you should too, my friend.

Now we're running for cover
Running to hide
Yeah, we're running for cover
Running to hide

We've been trying with each other to unravelly age your own story
But I'm starting to think that there's a reason we don't understand
And it's easy to blame someone else for my wants and my worries
But I know, I accept that it's just a part of who I am.

Now we're running for cover
Running to hide
And you say it's not my problem
I decide out of mind.

Yes, we're running for cover
Yeah, we're running afraid
As we run with one another
Of the mess that we've made
