Your brown eyes are my blue skies
They light up the rivers that the birds fly over
Better not to quench your thirst
Better not to be the first one diving in
Though you caught me and you know why
You breathe in the deepest part of the water

What's the matter? You hurt yourself?
Opened your eyes and there was someone else?

Now I've got you in the undertow
Now I've got you in the undertow

Why you wanna blame me for your troubles?
Oh, oh, oh
You better learn your lesson yourself
Nobody ever has to find out
What's in my mind tonight

Let tonight pass us by
Do you really wanna be the one to fight?
And I said,
'You're better not to light that fire,
It will take you to the darkest part of the weather.'

What's the matter, you hurt yourself?
Opened your eyes and there was someone else?

Now I've got you in the undertow
Now I've got you in the undertow

Why you wanna blame me for your troubles?
Oh, oh, oh
You better learn your lesson yourself
Nobody ever has to find out
What's in my mind tonight
Nobody ever has to find out
What's in my mind tonight

Nobody in my mind
Nobody in my mind
I feel it in my heart tonight

I laid on the floor
Pressing in my eyes
Seeing little lights
Just like these decisions that only one could make
I wanted to stay home but I went

Running, running, running, running from the troubles
Running, running, running, running from the troubles
Running, running, running, running from the troubles
Running, running, running, running, running, running, running, running running...

What's the matter? You hurt yourself?
Opened your eyes and there was someone else
Now I've got you in the undertow
Now I've got you so

Why you wanna blame me for your troubles?
Oh, oh, oh
You better learn your lesson yourself
Nobody ever has to find out
What's in my mind tonight

I went running, running, running, running from the troubles
(I laid on the floor, pressing in my eyes
Seeing little lights
Just like these decisions that only one could make
I wanted to stay home but I went...)
Running, running, running, running, running, running, running, running, running, running, running, running from the troubles...
