Voices off Camera

Can you hear the desperate cries

That are calling out your name?

Twisting your arms, holding out their hands

And tugging at your sleeve

Do you feel this underlying sense of urgency

Or are you as blind as me?

 

I hit the ground and I'm still running but I need a place to stay tonight,

I swear I'll be gone in the morning I just need somewhere now

 

I can't bear the thought of losing,

I dread the attention winning brings

And ever since the day I came here

I can stand without your strings

I'm so sick of all these people

But I'm scared to be alone

And if this life has taught me anything

I forgot it long ago

 

And so I hit the ground and I'm still running but I need a place to stay tonight,

I swear I'll be gone in the morning I just need somewhere warm to close my eyes

Hit the ground and I'm still running but I need a place to stay tonight,

I swear I'll be gone in the morning I just need somewhere warm to close my eyes

 

The heart is something you can't control

We either choose to follow or be left on our own

So we're leaving here on a less-travelled road

As desperate cries grow louder, I know we're getting close, getting close

 

And so I hit the ground and I'm still running but I need a place to stay tonight,

I swear I'll be gone in the morning I just need somewhere warm to close my eyes

Hit the ground and I'm still running but I need a place to stay tonight,

I swear I'll be gone in the morning I just need somewhere warm to close my eyes
