Still Running

No matter how fast I run
  I cannot get away from myself
 † I have never been satisfied in this life
 † † and have only known regret
 † † †for the things I have done for love

I have never had, wanted or kept money
 †I just donít understand the value
 † †in hordes of possessions
 † † these things are only fleeting
 † † †and they cannot replace
 † † † the touch of a woman

 † I woke again this morning
 † † in my solitary bed
 † † †with a dream of you in my wake
 † † † and I felt too naked
 † † † †even in my clothes
 † † † †
 † † In my shameful sentimentality
 † † † † I feel as if I speak an extinct
 † † † † † and long forgotten language †
 † † † † † †that will only be shared with you
 † † † † † †when we meet

 † † † Like a question in a dream
 † † † † I am puzzled at the thought
 † † † †of the careless use of love
 † † † † †and that few know the riches
 † † † † † †in having someone that understands you
