lyrics

I've been wondering, the last few nights
Whether I'm really, moving forwards
When I'm boxed in with my virtual toys
I see my friends all growing up and they're all
They're looking happy

It's true I don't have the same stresses
But I don't have the same joys
I can't help but feel left behind
When I'm waiting for nights with the boys

What am I running, from?
Am I even running?
The truth is I've felt static
Like the Christmas decoration you forgot to take down
And waits for any old excuse to celebrate
When you're around

My life had revolved around
Battles fought and lost
And even though I freed myself from the ones that did me wrong
It's the same hole, I appear to have dug
I'm sure my Mum expected me to settle down
I'm sure my Dad had wanted to see me around
But it appears that I've stayed, perhaps a little more grey, and static

What am I running, from?
Am I even running?
The truth is I've felt static
Like the Christmas decoration you forgot to take down
And waits for any old excuse to celebrate
When you're around

I've heard no man is poor who has friends
For that I feel like a king among men
But I can't help but feel, that my life's a little bit still
And I can't keep eating takeaways for each and every meal
I have to get moving

What am I running, from?
Am I even running?
The truth is I've felt static
Like the Christmas decoration you forgot to take down
And waits for any old excuse to celebrate
When you're around

Those few minutes are about the time
That I usually spend trying to sort, this thing out
So I'll grab my phone and wallet
I'm popping out for a pint if you're about
Give me a shout
