running so long lyrics – phillip larue

she takes off her halo and throw’s it on the floor
puts her lipstick on and walks out the door
looks and the sky and cries “god when you gonna rain on me”?

yea cuz we all got stories here in this place
but we hide them well with the smiles on our face
but, if you listen closely there’s an aching
in everyone’s heart

and i have been running so long
i forgot what i was running for
and you’ve been crying so long
you forgot what you were crying for
i’ve been running so long
i forgot i was running to you, to you

we’ll if time had a face and i guessed his age
would he let me rewind,
would he let me change
this last year and all those mistakes
but i still love the way you hold me in the night
i love the way you whisper “everything’s gonna be all right”
and i am sorry that lately i’ve lost some faith
in myself and everyone else

but i have been running so long
i forgot what i was running for
and you’ve been crying so long
you forgot what you were crying for
i’ve been running so long
i forgot i was running to you,

wait and in time
we’ll see the light breaking through
can you feel it too?
i need you too

i’ve been running so long
i forgot what i was running for
and you’ve been crying so long
you forgot what you were crying for
and i fall like a cannon ball
and hope that you hear me call
i’m falling back it’s true
i’ve been running so long, i forgot
i’ve been running so long, i forgot
i’ve been running so long, i forgot
i forgot i was running to you
