Outrunning My Soul
written by John Hiatt

You're outrunning my soul
You're outrunning my soul
My life is out of control
You're outrunning my soul
You're outrunning my soul

You're outrunning my soul
You're outrunning my soul
You're EZ passing my toll, baby
You're outrunning my soul
You're outrunning my soul

What's it gonna take to slow you down a little bit
What's it gonna take for love of just live with it
I can't shake these feelings inside of me
I can't fake the man that I'm supposed to be

You're outrunning my soul, baby
You're outrunning my soul, baby
It's like I'm taking a stroll, baby
You're outrunning my soul
You're outrunning my soul

You give me a wink passed all understanding
Shudders me to think what love might be demanding
Wouldn't it be nice to spend some together?
Can't we be here now and now not be forever

You're outrunning my soul, baby
You're outrunning my soul, baby
You're like some special patrol, baby
You're outrunning my soul
You're outrunning my soul

Shoot the moon and stars out beyond the stratosphere
Flesh upon flesh cozy by the fire here
Bending to your will in a single arc of light
Isn't that enough eternity for one night?

You're outrunning my soul, baby
You're outrunning my soul, baby
Going nowhere I'm told
You're outrunning my soul
You're outrunning my soul

You're outrunning my soul, baby
You're outrunning my soul, baby
It's like I got no control, baby
You're outrunning my soul
You're outrunning my soul
