IF YOU RUN

Here it comes again
You start wishing for the old times
When love was easy
Here it comes again
You start to wonder if it's you or him
Who stopped believing

Is it love
Is it blind
Does it hurt to unwind
Will you run will you hide
Will it pass away with time
Pass away with time
If you run

The same thing waits for you
If you run
A new place with the same old view
If you run
The same heart beats
If you run
The story repeats
If you run

Can't remember when
You're less like lovers and more like friends
Cause you let it slide
If this is where it ends
Where's the mercy do you have to try it
Time and time again

Don't know what
Lies behind
If you look will you find
Deeper love
Bigger lies
Or a wound that heals with time
Will you heal with time
If you run

The same thing waits for you
If you run
A new place with the same old view
If you run
The same heart beats
If you run
The story repeats
If you run
