Nagging Dark
written by John Hiatt

How fast you gonna run? Away from this one
Anywhere but here, you wanna disappear
Into the next daylight, where everything's right
It's always somewhere else, you're gonna fix yourself
Once shame and guilt had made their mark

Well you can't run away from the nagging dark
You carry it everywhere in your heart
It finishes everything that you start
And, you can't run away from the nagging dark

How much you gonna cost? When everything's lost
What a price you'd pay, just to feel some way
Cause your heart has stone, round down to the bone
How your flesh and blood, is just ashes and mud
Feels like your soul's been blown apart

And you can't run away from the nagging dark
You carry it everywhere in your heart
It finishes everything that you start
You can't run away from the nagging dark

How far can you see? Will you ever be free?
Through the blackest night, aw you still hold on tight
Hope is your finest work. It's your finest work
Hope is your finest work of all

And you can't run away from the nagging dark
You carry it everywhere in your heart
It finishes everything that you start
No you can't run away from the-
Well you can't run away from the nagging dark
It finishes everything that you start
You carry it everywhere in your heart
You can't run away from the nagging dark
