Outrunning My Soul
written by John Hiatt

Youíre outrunniní my soul, baby
Youíre outrunniní my soul, baby
My life is out of control, baby
Youíre outrunniní my soul
Youíre outrunniní my soul

Youíre outrunniní my soul, baby
Youíre outrunniní my soul, baby
You E-Z passiní my toll, baby
Youíre outrunniní my soul
Youíre outrunniní my soul

Whatís it gonna take, to slow you down a little bit?
Whatís it gonna take for love of just live with it?
I canít shake the feelings inside of me
I canít fake the man that Iím supposed to be

Youíre outrunniní my soul, baby
Youíre outrunniní my soul, baby
Itís like Iím taking a stroll
My life is out of control, baby
Youíre outrunniní my soul
Youíre outrunniní my soul

You give me a wink
Past all understanding
Shudders me to think
What love might be demanding
Wouldnít it be nice
To spend some together
Canít we be here now?
Now might be forever

Youíre outrunniní my soul, baby
Youíre outrunniní my soul, baby
Youíre like some special patrol, baby
You outrun my soul
You outrun my soul

Shoot the moon and stars
Out beyond the stratosphere
Flesh upon flesh
Cozy by the fire, here
Bending to your will
(The log of light)
Isnít that enough
To turn into for one night?

Youíre outrunniní my soul, baby
Youíre outrunniní my soul, baby
Youíre going nowhere Iím told, baby
You outrun my soul
You outrun my soul

Youíre outrunniní my soul, baby
Youíre outrunniní my soul, baby
I found I got no control, baby
You outrun my soul
You outrun my soul
