"Runner" lyrics - PURE PRAIRIE LEAGUE


You've made this run some time before
Breakin' the curves like you knew for sure but we used to know
If you wanna me here standin' so close
You make my fires tremble and my mind unclear

Burnin' up the highway, sun's risin'
My horizons... deepen with the blue
Ol' southbound wind
It's makin' me colder and colder
Nearer closer I find your troubles aren't mine to lend
Next of kin do you have to rub it in

I think I've had my fill of the river's restless flow
All in all I could wait until the river is still

...and the ice is on the benches
...another mad runner have I used up all my chances

When they listen to the rain splashes
Graspin' dry leaves through the open door
Do you really want to see me here anymore
It's a simple question I've learned my lesson now
So please let me come in
Close the curtains... let our love begin
