Running Through The Night

lyrics

O, we're running through the night,
Coat tails flying in the streetlight,
Down the hill to catch the boat
To the other side.

O, we're running through the night,
Always running out of time,
My pillow is my old brown coat,
We're two sea-rats on this swollen boat...

There's no time left to take,
No more, as we go by the sun,
And the stars feel like ours this morning,
As we walk out the town.

Picked up by a baker
On the skirts of pretty Nelson,
He was almost home;
He turned around, reminded of all of those
Who turned around.

So I sat with his dog on my knee,
And his baby beside me;
While he told you about his wife,
So much sadness in his eyes...

There's no time left to take
No more, as we go by the sun,
And the stars feel like ours this morning,
As we walk out the town.

O, and now as I descend
And all the noise is in my head,
You pull me through;
'Cause I am rich when I'm with you -
When you're by my side...

Running through the night,
Catching eyes in the moonlight,
We've got all the things we need,
All the things we'll ever need.
