You keep running away
Though I beg you not to leave
But still you won't stay
Darlin' you keep running away
Tear my heart apart every step of the way

You're here today and gone tomorrow
Leavin' this heart of mine in sorrow
Now you come around every now and then
Long enough to hurt me, and then you're gone again

Darlin' you, you keep running away
Oh, I begged you not to leave, you never stay
Now you, you keep running away
Leavin' me here to face another lonely day

To you all of this is just a game
But each time you came here, I feel the pain
But I've got so much love for you
I keep wanting you, no matter what you do

All I want to do is take care of you
Everything I have in my life, I'll share with you
This soul of mine has been possessed by you
Darling my heart has been obsessed with you
Just look at me, I'm not the man, I used to be

I used to be proud, I used to be strong
But all of that's changed girl, since you come along
Your lovin' sweetness is my weakness
Though I need you, dear, I just can't keep you near

Running away, running away, running away
Running away, running away, running away

Each time you go, the hurt comes callin'
My days become nights, darlin'
My nights become so much longer
You're in my life, you're in my heart

But I can't get you, get you into my arms
Darlin' you, you keep runnin' away
Darlin' you, you just keep runnin' away
