The Runner

lyrics

Most of us got houses
But none of us got homes
All of us have lovers
But still we run alone
Ooh, there's no high or low
No high or low along this course to chase
Ooh, there's no victory
But we are runners all we know is how to race

Am I crazy
Baby I'm losing faith
In this game we play

If you see me in the nighttime I'll be running in the street
If you catch me in the morning I'll be back on my feet
If you see me in the daytime lucky me lucky you, you, you

All of us are honest
Cos most of us are liars, yeah
And everyone is dying
Somethings plastic can't hide
Ooh, there's no high or low
We climb like Esher on a plane staircase
Ooh, there's no victory
No victory in this race

Am I crazy
Baby I'm losing faith
In this game we play
Am I crazy
Get me out of this race
Am I crazy

If you see me in the nighttime I'll be running in the street
If you catch me in the morning I'll be back on my feet
If you see me in the daytime lucky me lucky you, you, you
