I won’t stop 'til you catch up
Then I’ll laugh at your shadows slow.
Until you turn out the light
And clouds crawl creeping close-

Will you call back to me then?
In my sleep-hazed screaming voice?
I dare you to answer
To run at your choice

'Til the morning nebula clears
And builds you a path
Pick truth until then
Don’t fill such our gap.

Were you not meant to be first?
To leave your tracks left for me to find?
Somehow it's now you
Behind, spotting mine.

I’m proud to lead you out
Into where you should have been
I’m ashamed you’ll forget
Your way back again.
