Running for the outskirts,
avoiding all the lights.
Just like I hid under covers
when you were having fights.

Showing up, a little late
Tipping at the heels
The smile that you gave in return
Can't hide how you feel

The sons you thought you had
were halved in a year.
While you were cut wide open,
miles away from here.

Chasing in your funny way -
well, it's just how you were raised
Now you're further from those you loved,
And where you prayed.

That's why I'm running for the outskirts;
to put it out of sight.
Waiting for time
to put it to the right.
