You shouldn't have it
It's taken me far too long to hide it from you now
You should keep it, such a precious thing to give away
You found it easy to break in through these walls I thought I'd built so well
But not so easy for my head to turn and find you there
Are you running from the same dogs that are snapping at my heels?

My heels have been chewed up so much lately, that it's hard for me to stand up
I have taken every precaution to stop it all adding up, adding up

They shouldn't have it, it's been built up to something nowhere near
I wish that it was creeping up on them, filled up with fear
But no matter, no matter how fast I go, I'm never as fast as slow
I found my feet getting tangled in the traps you laid so well

Are you running from the same dogs that are snapping at my heels?
My heels have been chewed up so much lately, that it's hard for me to stand up
I have taken every precaution to stop it all adding up, adding up

Do you remember when she asked me if I was ok
If I had anything to say?
We looked at each other in disbelief
We fell over laughing at her feet
She's treading an unforgiving path
That will never take her back
Do you think that put her in her place?
Do you think she saw the answers on my face?

You shouldn't have it
It's taken me far too long to hide it from you now
You should keep it, such a precious thing to give away
You found it easy to break in through these walls I thought I'd built so well
But not so easy for my head to turn and find you there
Are you running from the same dogs that are
Are you running from the same dogs that are
Are you running from the same dogs that are snapping at my heels?

My heels have been chewed up so much lately, that it's hard for me to stand up
I have taken every precaution to stop it all adding up, adding up
My heels have been chewed up so much lately, that it's hard for me to stand up
I have taken every precaution to stop it all adding up, adding up
