Verse 1

How to tell if a guy has just turned insane?

At 2 at night, he decides to board a train.

Says, I ain't coming home, gonna see the hills.

You stare at the text over coffee refills.

And then he calls you up the very next day,

Says, I got an issue, you know what he'll say.

Her face is lurking in the shadows again.

Darling, you can't outrun your own heart and brain.

Chorus

You listen to the call of nature, don't know why,

You ain't got the courage to listen to your own heart.

You're out there in the wild chasing storms, and the sky,

But you can't chase the one thing that can tear you apart.

And I'm telling you, darling, just so you know.

One day you're gonna regret letting her go.

And I'm telling you, I'll say, I told you so.

Verse 2

Reading your mind is a complicated task.

That girl is real nice, do you like her? I ask.

Your answers are vague, if you answer at all.

But I know this girl ain't her, so you won't fall.

Chorus

You listen to the call of nature, don't know why,

You ain't got the courage to listen to your own heart.

You're out there in the wild chasing storms, and the sky,

But you can't chase the one thing that can tear you apart.

And I'm telling you, darling, just so you know.

One day you're gonna regret letting her go.

And I'm telling you, I'll say, I told you so.

Bridge

I told you to run after her.

Doesn't matter that she's so far

If your heart is really in it,

And you know it is, every beat.

So I don't understand, why can't

You just stand outside her door,

And tell her you love your freedom,

But you love her so much more?

Chorus

You listen to the call of nature, don't know why,

You ain't got the courage to listen to your own heart.

You're out there in the wild chasing storms, and the sky,

But you can't chase the one thing that can tear you apart.

And I'm telling you, darling, just so you know.

One day you're gonna regret letting her go.

And I'm telling you, I'll say, I told you so.
