Keep Me Runnin’

Artist: Randy Stonehill | Album: Welcome to Paradise | © 1975 Stonehillian Music / Solid Rock Records

Keep me running from the shadow of my life
Like a gypsy who is never satisfied
Once you compromise your soul
You spend your lifetime dodging the devils toll

Keep me running keep me covering up my tracks
Keep me running so I’m always lookin’ back
Always restless in my dreams
And trouble’s never too far behind it seems

Keep me running, keep me movin’
Keep me alway’s on the go
Keep me making sure my footprints never show
Keep me running, keep me movin’
Keep me numb from head to toe
Keep me hiding where my past will never go

Keep me running from the sins I can’t erase
Like an outlaw with a mask to hide his face
Once I was told that love could fly
Yeah, but it’s been so long I just can’t remember why
