my mind was blank as i ran away
legs flopping like raggedy anne
i couldn't say where i was going
i don't know where i've been

i was just wondering
what was around the next bend

a chill ran down my spine as the sky grew dark
i had no where to stop, so i didn't bother

the night became my friend
as my thoughts started running as well

oh, how they ran
from person to person
from age to age

they couldn't stop
i had no where to stop
so they just kept going

my feet slowed to a walk
my breath calmed enough to talk

i had run myself to your doorstep
warm breath white in the cold winter air
wont you let me in?

my feet are tired and my lungs are cold
i'm feeling sick, and i'm growing old
just let me stay with you a bit.
