The Common Linnets - Runaway Man

When i was younger, and all i had to do
Was hold your hand and drink you in and make some time for you
I went stumbling through the darkness of a thousand half-lit bars
I don’t know what i was running from, but I must have run too far

Now I’m reaching back for something
But I’m coming up with nothing
And it’s a long long way from where i was to where i am
God have mercy on a runaway man
God have mercy on a runaway man

The key under your doormat, the porch light you left lit
The years dragged on and burred away just like a cigarette
And the price of all those nights was never worth the morning cost
No, no amount of wishing’s gonna bring back what I lost

And now i’m reaching back for something
But i’m coming up with nothing
And it’s a long long way from where i was to where i am
God have mercy on a runaway man
God have mercy on a runaway man

And it’s a long long way from where i was to where i am
God have mercy on a runaway man
God have mercy on a runaway man

God have mercy on a runaway man
God have mercy on a runaway man
