At the stroke of midnight
I ran from you, from my pain, from my past
I ran from you, from my love, from my life
I ran from me, from hurts, from strive
To future black and bleak
Without you crazy and weak
But for you,
I ran like a crazy man,
I ran with my legs and my soul
My legs running in all directions, away from you
My soul entwined with you but running away from you
Your love engulfed me
Your eyes overwhelmed me
Your bare soul made me weak
Your deep eyes made me weep
Your touch your look gave me spasm
My heart still bleeding, couldn’t take your passion
Hence I ran
I ran from your love and my obsession
My heart couldn’t believe the love you offered
I kept hurting you and saw you suffer
You felt trapped, I felt locked
My mind was numb and my senses shocked
I asked this question again and again
Am I fair to you?
Am I your Man?
And my mind gave me this answer again and again
No, you don’t deserve her
Will you be able to preserve her?
Will you look after the pieces of her heart?
Will you be able to restart?
You hardly manage to let go of the past,
You hardly manage to breathe on your own
How will you be her Man?
Will you ever be able to be a part of her plan?
Would you be able to give her the due?
Will you ever stand up and say I do?
I knew, I would never
And I ran!
I ran so you could see a better tomorrow
I ran so you could be out of my sorrow
I ran to give you wings
I ran to give you wins
I ran to let you fly
I ran in the night,
To let you see the day,
I ran so I could die,
So you could live without me
