Running Lyrics

[Verse 1: NF]
I'm tired
Of holding on to you, it's time to let
My pride
Go and learn to love myself again, yeah
I don't wanna wait another
Day, I've waited long enough, I'm
Ready, I can see the sun, it's coming up
There's happiness on the horizon
I'm hopeful I can see the light, I've
Hesitated all my life, but I'm all done

[Pre-Chorus: NF]
I'm done running from you
Spent my whole life in your shadow, scared
Of who I'd be if I, yeah
Said goodbye and I didn't have you here

[Chorus: NF]
I wish you well, but I
Can no longer stand aside
And watch you sabotage
The two of us
I love you to dеath, but I
Can't spend the rest of my
Lifе in this darkness, I'm done

[Post-Chorus: NF]
I'm done (Oh-oh, oh)
(Oh-oh, oh)

[Verse 2: NF]
I wish you the best, but
I'm not interested
In giving you more of my life
I've already given you too much
I don't wanna lose ya
I don't wanna keep ya
I know that you mean well
But when I fail, I don't need ya
Rubbing my face in it and treating me like I'm
Less than you, tell the truth
You know I'll be better without ya
Been in your shoes, don't be a fool
And try to convince me that I'm the
Real issue when you're the root
To every problem, I love you but not e-
-​​nough to allow you to continue to drown the both of us
You're Holding me back, you're pulling me down
You're making me hate myself, I
Don't wanna leave, but that's what I need
I ain't got a choice, I can't just
Let you deceive and make me believe
That I don't deserve to be loved, I (Ayy)
Am not gonna stand aside
And watch you attempt to rob and steal and sabotage
What little faith I have left
Yeah, haven't I sacrificed enough for you?
Hate seeing you cry
But I think it's time to let go and say our goodbyes
Yeah, I'm gonna miss you
But I'm not gonna spend the rest of my life

[Pre-Chorus: NF]
Running from you
Spent my whole life in your shadow, scared
Of who I'd be if I
Said goodbye and I didn't have you here

[Chorus: NF]
I wish you well, but I
Can no longer stand aside
And watch you sabotage
The two of us
I love you to death, but I
Can't spend the rest of my
Life in this darkness, I'm
Done

[Outro: NF]
I'm done (Oh-oh, oh)
(Oh-oh, oh)
