Running After Me
by Ben Glover
Here I am again
Oh the same old-fashioned sin
And the same old-fashioned shame
Iím as dirty as the rug
In a darkened alley pub
And I am sick and tired of this old-fashioned game
Will I ever truly understand?
I can hide but you know where I am
And you pursue my heart before I ever get
Too far away from you
And Iíve come so close
But youíve come so close
And Iíve fought so hard
But you grab me and you pull me back again
And Iíve run away
But you keep on running after me
Running after me
Should I keep falling down?
And make friends with the ground?
And the mud thatís on my face
Do I like my disarray
And the way my edges fray
As I disregard this discomfort and dismay
Will I truly ever understand?
Iím not always the seeker in you plan
ĎCause you pursued my heart before I ever
Started chasing after you
Chase me down and capture all I am
ĎCause Iím fighting off the will to wander again
Be my retreat, my sweet release, my remedy
