Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Honey please get out of that hole you're in
Talking to yourself like you're some schizophrenic
I've tried to make you love me
But you're too tired of seeing good things, oh oh

[Chorus]
Run, like you always do babe
Run, like you're in some sort of race
Run, but you'll come back to me
Run, cause it's so damn easy

[Verse 2]
I've got trust issues, what do you expect from me?
How should I react when you're always on a running spree?
Your love ran out the minute you held me
So what if I love someone who don't love me

[Chorus]
Run, like you always do babe
Run, like you're in some sort of race
Run, but you'll come back to me
Run, cause it's so damn easy

[Bridge]
One plus one should've equaled you and me
But you gave up, set sail on the only sea
Momma was right, you were never good for me
I'm done with boys who are on the track team

[Chorus]
Run, like you always do babe
Run, like you're in some sort of race
Run, but don't come back to me

[Outro]
Run, watch me be happy
Watch me be happy
Watch me be happy
Watch me be happy
Watch me be happy
Watch me be happy
Watch me be happy
Watch me be happy
Watch me be happy
