running in place (niki am) lyrics – hawthorne heights

running in place (niki am)

dead lights & empty bottles
another year is hard to swallow.
let’s build this up just to break it down.
let’s build this up just to break it down again.

foreign lands & inner struggles
your demands have gotten shallow.
let’s build this up just to break it down.
let’s build this up just to break it down again.

cut the cord i can make it on my own.

you never mattered anyway
when i lost you i found my place
but i can’t get you from my clothes
i’ll never stand outside your window.
[x2]

below the soil & the dirt
are all my friends that have my heart.
my families gone & all that’s left
is this stupid song & a hole in my chest.

well i’m still here & i’m still breathing.
this half of my heart is hardly beating
she keeps repeating all that she needed
but i don’t care i like this distance.

cut the cord i can make it on my own.

you never mattered anyway
when i lost you i found my place
but i can’t get you from my clothes
i’ll never stand outside your window.
[x2]

let’s build this up just to break, break, break it down.
[x2]

all my friends are gone & they’re not coming back again
let’s build this up just to break, break, break it down.
[x2]

[chorus]
