You can catch a breath
And you can catch the wind,
You can catch your death
Out where the sky don't end.

You can catch a glance
At where you want to be.
You can catch tomorrow,
But you can't catch me.

Mmmmm-hmmm.

You can catch a star
And you can catch a break,
You can catch yourself
Before a big mistake.

You can catch a secret
That could set you free.
You can catch the future,
But you can't catch me.

Uh-huh.

Go on and sound your horns, go on, release the hounds,
Go on and tell your men that you're plannin' to run me to ground.
Let's dance, the hunt is on, you can't put the devil back in his box.
You're gonna need a lot of luck if you're ever gonna catch the fox.

They can catch your eye
And they can catch your heart,
They can catch your hand
Before you even start.

They can catch your life
Or they can set you free --
You can catch a memory,
But you can't catch me.

Mmmmm-hmmm.

Go on and sound your horns, go on, release the hounds,
Go on and tell your men that you're plannin' to run me to ground.
Let's dance, the hunt is on, you can't put the devil back in his box.
You're gonna need a lot of luck if you're ever gonna catch the fox.

Come on and run run run me down
Oh down down to the ground.
Come on and run run run me 'round
And 'round and 'round --

It's catch and release,
It's a door with no locks,
And you won't find no peace
When you're chasing the fox,
Now who's hunting who?
Which one sits back and mocks?
I'm promising you
That you won't catch the fox
No you can't catch a fox

Mmmmm-hmmm.

You can catch yourself and catch on fire
Catch a crook and catch a liar
I promise you the stakes are higher
When you say that you can catch the --
Never gonna catch the --
Better not to catch the fox.

Mmmmm-hmmm. Uh-huh.
