Running
Lyrics & Music by Terry Murphy
© 2006 Terry Murphy
Produced by Danny Ellis, Sung by Jenna Anderson

ThereÂ?s a peace that eludes me
And it leaves my mind confused and unsettled
I feel so defeated, with a need to run
Like a shell with no echo thatÂ?s been cast away
ThatÂ?s how my heartÂ?s been broken
And now I fear without you
My words will never be spoken

I donÂ?t know why
You keep me running, keep me running
That mountain youÂ?re on, is so high to climb

ThereÂ?s something about you
that keeps me running, keeps me running
IÂ?ll keep running though IÂ?m two steps behind

My dreams lay here shattered
Consumed by the loss of a life that IÂ?ll never know
I aimlessly wander off the path with nowhere to go
Misplacing the message sent with love
Does it have chance of getting to you?
IÂ?m on my knees crying
And this time it feels like IÂ?m dying

I just donÂ?t know why
You keep me running, keep me running
That mountain youÂ?re on, it is so high to climb

ThereÂ?s something about you
That keeps me running, keeps me running
IÂ?ll keep on running though IÂ?m two steps behind

You know the intention
Yet thereÂ?s been no reply
Sometimes destiny is delayed
Though it can never be denied

I donÂ?t understand why
You keep me running, keep me running
That mountain youÂ?re on is so high to climb

ThereÂ?s something about you
that keeps me running, keeps me running
And I'll keep on running though I'm two steps behind

ThereÂ?s something about you
That keeps me running, keeps me running
That mountain youÂ?re on isnÂ?t so high to climb

ThereÂ?s something about you that keeps me running
Keeps me running.....
