Lyrics

Between the shadows and the light
In the cover of the night we run
We’ll sleep when we getting where we going
And feel the heat of the sun
Outside the city walls
There is another goal
Run baby baby
Run run baby baby
Don’t stop til the morning comes
Behind to your left and your right
Got the bullet and a bomb and a gun
You wanna feel as light as a feather
But trouble weighs in at a ton
There’s gotta be a better way
You wanna be another place
Run little brother
Run run little brother
Don’t stop til we where we belong
You and I
You and I
Will no longer be denied
Pick me up if I should fall cause they could never stop us all
You and I
You and I
Let this be a battle cry
Put your fist up in the crowds cause they could never stop us now
Don’t get caught in the middle of it all
In the negativity and the hate
Cause they’ll trash talk as soon as you walk away
But they smile in your face
Don’t ever let it get you down
Don’t ever let it turn you round
Run baby baby
Run run baby baby
Don’t stop til the dark is gone
I know it’s on the radio
I know you see it on your TV screen
You read it online, in the papers, and even in the magazine
Don’t waste time with fittin' in
Cause you and I are different
Run baby baby
Run run baby girl
Don’t stop til we get back home
You and I
You and I
Will no longer be denied
Pick me up if I should fall cause they could never stop us all
You and I
You and I
Let this be a battle cry
Put your fist up in the crowds cause they could never stop us now
Meet me 'round the way
So we can break through all this grey
Make a b-line for the exit sign
We gotta get outta this place
Meet me 'round the way
So we can break through all this grey
Make a b-line for the exit sign
We gotta get outta this place
You and I
You and I
Will no longer be denied
Pick me up if I should fall cause they could never stop us now
You and I
You and I
Let this be a battle cry
Put your fist up in the crowds cause they could never stop us now
