First she puts her high heels on again
They make her legs look long
Then she crosses up her fingers
And pulls her tight jeans on
Then she pulls her shirt out, she don’t want no one to know
She needs to run the problem is she’s got nowhere to go
Well it’d be good at a time like this
When all your hopes seem meaningless
To know you’re not alone

Running just to begin
Boxing with shadows
Chasing the wind
Trying so hard to pretend
That I never loved you, that I never loved you

She asks her friends and her family
About a place to stay
They all wish her well it’s just one of those
Things you always say
It’s hard to put your hand out
When you’ve got nothing to give
It’s easier to give up, but you know you need to live
And it’d be good at a time like this
When all your dreams seem meaningless
To know you’re not alone

Running just to begin
Boxing with shadows
Chasing the wind
Trying so hard to pretend
That I never loved you…

There’s gonna be some hell to pay
Before this night is over
And if there’s a better way
I know you’ll find it, you’re gonna find it

Running just to begin…

Running just to begin
Boxing with shadows
Chasing the wind
Trying so hard to pretend
That I never loved you
Running just to begin
Boxing with shadows
Chasing the wind
Trying so hard to pretend
That I never loved you
But I always loved you
