Lyrics : Run

It was a year to the day that you took her breath away
Left you cold, left you shaking, left me humble, unrelating
You were feathered to the weather but the cold crept in no matter
Now it wears you like a chain around its long and stony neck
And in that locket, I forgot it, like a tissue in my pocket
You were burning, you were beating, you were smiling up at me
‘Cos you gave me your kingdom and I gave you no receipt
You in all your wisdom, me in my infinite defeat

And you whispered it goes on, it goes on, it goes on, it goes on

And that year to the day when some new life came your way
Put some breath into your lungs, put a skip into your step
And that news of a child, it left you free, left you wild
And you called me just to tell me that you missed me la da da
But you were waiting for a promise, ‘til our kitchen stood among us
There you told me and we kissed and I cried

It goes on, it goes on, it goes on, it goes on

There is a hand that unlocks us and another one that knocks us
Both are whispering their secrets that we’re not willing to hear
‘Cos we all catch the same disease, it kills us all eventually
But no one sees it, no one hears it, it’s like pointing at the breeze
So take me in all my fervour, we can’t complicate this further
Let life give life and all your love, bring me to my knees

‘Cos it goes on, it goes on, it goes on, it goes on
