if I ever found the cause of this sadness I know it would be
impossible to keep the vision against all of me
when I took myself far and away from everyone that I knew
if you're looking for the moon
is it ever when it's new

when the iron is cold and the binding holds fast onto you
when I listen for the footsteps that nearly knock me down in the room
the tower is gone, you say, but how well can you really see?
Oh you'll find it by and by
in a heartbeat you'll be free
and you will

run (x9)
run (x9)
run (x9)
keep running back to me

oh the both of our heads you've been searching to find a way through
but there's nothing that I want more than a reason to be following you
when you bring up the matches just remember that I own them all too
if a lie won't go too deep
in a heartbeat you'll be free
and you will

run (x9)
run (x9)
run (x9)
keep running back to me

run (x9)
run (x9)
run (x9)
keep running back to me
keep running back to me
to me
to me

    General CommentI think it's "Oh you'll find it by and by." And the line before sounds like "...how well can you really see?"

    General Commenti always thought she was saying: the tower is gone, you say, but how well can you really see?

    Lyric CorrectionIf I ever found the cause of this sadness, I know it would be
    Impossible to keep the vision against all of me
    When I took myself far and away from everyone that I knew
    If you're looking for the moon, is it ever when it's new?

    When the iron is cold and the binding holds fast on to you
    When I listen for the footsteps that nearly knock me
    Down in the room
    "The tower is gone", you say, but how well can you really see?

    Oh you'll find it by and by
    In a heartbeat you'll be free and you will
    Run run run run run run run run run
    Run run run run run run run run run
    Run run run run run run run run run
    Keep running back to me.

    Over both of our heads you've been searching
    To find a way soon
    But there's nothing that I want more than a reason
    To be following you
    When you bring out the matches just remember that
    I own them all too
    If a lie won't go too deep, in a heartbeat you'll be free
    And you will

    Run run run run run run run run run
    Run run run run run run run run run
    Run run run run run run run run run
    Keep running back to me.

    Run run run run run run run run run
    Run run run run run run run run run
    Run run run run run run run run run
    Keep running back to me
    Keep running back to me, to me, to me.
