[Chorus]
You could meet somebody, you never know
From brief encounters habits grow
Into giant oaks that hide the sun
Life in the shadows ain't no fun

It's easy getting up there
Never think of coming down
Not hard to say 'I want you'
When you're floating on a cloud
But you know that lonely feeling
When nothing's going right
'Cause it's only the beginning
Of a cold and sleepless night

[Chorus]

You could meet somebody, you never know
From brief encounters habits grow
Into giant oaks that hide the sun
Your only chance is to turn and run

It's harder getting up there
And it's painful coming down
And now you can't see clearly
Beneath the thunder cloud
And the loneliness gets longer
When nothing's going right
And things ain't getting any better
With another sleepless night

[Chorus]

You could meet somebody, you never know
From brief encounters habits grow
Into giant oaks that hide the sun
Your only chance is to turn and run
