Blues Traveler - Run Around Lyrics

Once upon a midnight dearie
I woke with something in my head
I couldnt escape the memory
Of a phone call and of what you said
Like a game show contestandt with a parting gift
I could not believe my eyes
When I saw through the voice of a trusted friend
Who needs to humor me and tell me lies
And Ill lie too and say I dont mind
And as we seek so shall we find
And when youre feeling open Ill still be here
But not without a certain degree of fear
Of what will be with you and me
I still can see things hopefully


But you
Why you wanna give me a run-around
Is it a sure-fire way to speed things up
When all it does is slow me down

And shake me and my confidence
About a great many things
But Ive been there I can see it cower
Like a nervous magician waiting in the wings
Of a bad play where the heroes are right
And nobody thinks or expects too much
And Hollywoods calling for the movie rights
Singing hey baby lets keep in touch
But I want more than a touch I want you to reach me
And show me all the things no one else can see
So what you feel becomes mine as well
And soon if were lucky wed be unable to tell
Whats yours and mine the fishings fine
And it doesnt have to rhyme so dont you fee me a line


Tra la la la la bomba dear this is the pilot speaking
And Ive got some news for you
It seems my ship still stands no matter what you drop
And there aint a whole lot that you can do
Oh sure the banner may be torn and the winds gotten colder
Perhaps Ive grown a little cynical
But I know no matter what the waitress brings
I shall drink it and be full
My cup shall always be full

Oh I like coffee
And I like tea
Id like to be able to enter a final plea
I still got this dream that you just cant shake
I love you to the point you can no longer take
Well all right okay
So be that way
I hope and pray
That theres something to say

(chorus) (2x)
