"Run-Time" as written by and Imogen Jennifer Jane Heap Imogen Heap....
Sparks might fly, in no time
It’s a delayed reaction of the third kind (ooh)
I’m so ready for this
Shrink-wrapped tones, I can face the music
Stop matters bonding us way beyond
Our best by-days

You know we've had it good,
We've had it bad, so no hard feelings
We've done all we could and all again
I’m done pretending
Let’s quit while we’re still friends

Making up stories that grew to be too tall,
My fortress to forget couldn't take anymore
You nearly watched me ruin everything, everything!
There’s a number one rule of don’t-do’s
Well we knew it all too well
You were supposed to be looking out for me!
Have you any idea how difficult it’s been?

You know we've had it good,
We've had it bad, so no hard feelings
We've done all we could, and all again
Let’s save ourselves a sorry ending
You know we've had it good, we've had it bad,
But this is as far as we can stretch
Let’s stop pretending, stop pretending
And quit while we’re still friends

Well I was so young, misguided maybe
But still this hands over my every pen to paper
And this all started with a song (started with a song, started with a song)
Let this be our last one
Drop, drop (bridge, bridge, bridge, bridge)

We've had it good, we've had it bad,
This is as far as we can stretch
Stop pretending!
And quit while we’re still friends

I wish you well
I wish you well (I wish you well, wish you well, wish you well)

Wish you well, I wish you well, I won’t tell if you won’t tell
I won’t hold it against you if you bow out gracefully (gracefully)
Can we just not drag this out, please?
I wish you well, I wish you well, I won’t tell if you won’t tell
I won’t hold it against you if you bow out gracefully (do it gracefully!)
Can we just not drag this out?
