The Run Around

Written By Vanessa Collier

My heart is heavy my head feels light

‘Cause you’re givin’ me the run around

I’ve been spinnin’ and spinnin’ outta control

Feel like I was tossed in the lost and found

 

Somethin’s changed the way things used to be

And it don’t make no sense to me

Somethin’ just ain’t right

And I need you to explain

 

Don’t the sun still rise in the eastern sky

One and one make two

So please, tell me baby

Why don’t you love me like you used to

 

I’ve been runnin’ to catch ya tryin’ to catch my breath

Only to find myself back at the starting line

I can feel my feet tryin’ to carry a different beat

But my heart keeps fallin’ behind

 

Somethin’s changed the way things used to be

And it don’t make no sense to me

Somethin’ just ain’t right

And I need you to explain

 

Don’t the sun still rise in the eastern sky

One and one make two

So please, tell me baby

Why don’t you love me like you used to

 

I’m givin’ up your troublesome mystery

No more excuses, I’ll be gone before ya miss me

But if there’s one thing I’ve learned

It’s never be concerned with the lies of a liar

‘Cause lovin’ you is like throwin’ tears on a fire

And I only end up burned

 

The sun’ll still rise in the eastern sky

One and one make two

So please, I don’t wanna hear it baby

I don’t care

I don’t love ya

I don’t love ya like I used to
