James Gillespie – Run Lyrics

Run By James Gillespie

You better run
Don’t get in this too deep
A loaded gun
By your pillow to sleep
I wake up
To nothing but stone, yeah

You better run
Don’t believe what they say
It’s only one
Life and you limit
Your way, not with me
More precious in rhyme, yeah

‘Cause you don’t need love to be fed
You don’t need my arms to go to bed
Or even these words to hear

You better run
You better run
You better run

You better run
‘Cause all you give is enough
The burning sun
Warms and destroys you at once
Just like me
No cure for disease, yeah

You better run
There’s more than pain underneath
The only son
To show a mother his teeth
Keep it down
Want meat for the feast, yeah

‘Cause you don’t need love to be fed
You don’t need my arms to go to bed
Or even these words to hear

You better run
Yeah, you better run
Yeah, you better run
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Oh no
If I believe in anything
That I can call a home
I woulda been by your side
But every time I try
To put my feet on solid ground
I go and burn it right down, yeah

You don’t need love to be fed
You don’t need my arms to go to bed
Or even these words to hear

You better run
