Lyrics

when i powder my nose
he will powder his gums
and if i try to get close
he is already gone
i don't know where he's going
i don't know where he's been
but he is restless at night
he has horrible dreams
so we lay in the dark
'cause we've got nothing to say
just the beating of hearts
like two drums in the gray
i don't know what we're doing
i don't know what we've done
but the fire is coming
so i think we should run
i think we should run, run, run

while i put on my shoes
he will button his coat
and we will step outside
checking out the coast is clear
on both sides
we don't want to be seen
no, this is suicide
that you can't see the ropes
and i won't tell my mother
it's better she don't know
and he won't tell his folks
'cause they're already ghosts
so we'll just keep each other as safe as we can
until we reach the border
until we make our plan
to run, run, run

will you stay with me, my love
for another day?
'cause i don't want to be alone
when i'm in this state
will you stay with me, my love
'till we're old and gray?
i don't want to be alone
when these bones decay

run, run, run

while i powder my nose
he will powder his gums
and if i try to get close
he is already gone
don't know what i'm doing
don't know what we've done
but the fire is coming
so i think we should run
