Lyrics

How long have I known you, how long?
How long can I wait for you, how long?
When I close my eyes and I count to ten
Then you run and hide from my arms again
How long can I stay away, how long?

Run while you can
I'm behind you
I'll find you
Wherever you hide
It's no secret
I can't be denied
Hide, hide and seek
Hide, hide and seek

We are over now
It was the lens
Although the face has changed
You can always tell them by the hands
Well they were big for you and the water's soon
But the stakes are high in the strangers room

How long can I play this game, how long?

Run while you can
I'm behind you
I'll find you
Wherever you hide
It's no secret
I can't be denied
Hide, hide and seek
Hide, hide and seek

You better run
You'll have to stay low
You'll never know
When I'll be there so-
You better hide

And if you kiss low
I'll get you under
You better run
You better hide
You'll have to stay low
You better run and hide
You better run and hide
You better run and hide
You gotta run

You'll have to hide now
You'll have to run and hide
You'll have to run and hide
You'll have to run

Now follow me and don't look back
Now follow me
