Say you know you've got to run
You know you've got to hide
You don't know who to follow
Or who is on your side

You don't know where you're goin'
You won't talk of where you've been
And I may see you tomorrow
Or nevermore again

And I've seen you in the cities
I've seen you on the road
And your face is all a-twisted
'Cause your brain is a heavy load

And then you turn and ask me
Say how will I ever know
And you talk of all your searchin'
But I think it's all for show

Open up my friend
Love someone if you can
Go on, let her in
Open up again

And I hear your mournful songs
I hear your painful cry's
And I've seen the light of hunger
Linger deep within your eyes

And you talk about your sinkin'
And what a hole you're in
You expect for me to love you
When you hate yourself my friend

And you've got yourself a potion
Oh, to keep you from your sleep
In that dark and lonely hour
Well I've heard you laugh and weep

But you'll always be a-runnin'
Runnin' till you find your doom
'Cause you never face your lonely soul
You never face the gloom

Open up my friend
Love someone if you can
Go on, let her in
Open up again
