I ran for my life
Bragged of my speed
While all of my colours were running dry

I sheltered my chest
Locked it away
Waiting for someone to come along
Someone to pick my locks
Who knows I've lost the key

I walked to your door
Looked at the sign
Telling me I couldn't do this alone
I need you next to me

I made up my mind
Let you inside
Stopped for the first time in my life
And now I am lying here, exhausted, crying next to you
