Run Around

Blues Traveler

 GCadd9AmD
 Once upon a midnight dearie
 GCadd9AmD
 I woke with something in my head
 GCadd9AmD
 I couldn't escape the memory
 GCadd9AmD
 Of a phone call and of what you said
 GCadd9AmDG
 Like a game show contestant with a parting gift
 CAmD
I could not believe my eyes
 GCadd9AmDG
 When I saw through the voice of a trusted friend
 GCadd9AmDG
 Who needs to humor me and tell me lies
 GCadd9AmD
 Yeah humor me and tell me lies
 GCadd9AmD
 And I'll lie too and say I don't mind
 GCadd9AmD
 And as we seek so shall we find

 GCadd9AmD
 And when you're feeling open I'll still be here
 GCadd9AmDG
 But not without a certain degree of fear
 GCadd9AmD
 Of what will be with you and me
 GCadd9AmD
 I still can see things hopefully

(CHORUS)
 GCadd9AmD
 But you          
 GCadd9AmD
 Why you wanna give me a run-around
 GCadd9AmD
 Is it a sure-fire way to speed things up
 GCadd9AmD
 When all it does is slow me down
Slow me down

 GCadd9AmD
 And shake me and my confidence
 GCadd9AmD
 About a great many things
 GCadd9AmD
 But I've been there I can see it cower
 GCadd9AmDG
 Like a nervous magician waiting in the wings
 Cadd9AmDG
Of a bad play where the heroes are right
 Cadd9AmD
And nobody thinks or expects too much
 GCadd9AmD
 And Hollywood's calling for the movie rights
 GCadd9AmD
 Singing hey babe let's keep in touch
 GCadd9AmD
 Hey baby let's keep in touch
 GCadd9AmD
 But I want more than a touch I want you to reach me
 GCadd9AmD
 And show me all the things no one else can see
 GCadd9AmD
 So what you feel becomes mine as well
 GCadd9AmD
 And soon if we're lucky we'd be unable to tell
 GCadd9AmD
 What's yours and mine the finshings fine
 GCadd9AmDG
 And it doesn't have to rhyme so don't feed me a line

(CHORUS)
 GCadd9AmD
 But you          
 GCadd9AmD
 Why you wanna give me a run-around
 GCadd9AmD
 Is it a sure-fire way to speed things up
 GCadd9AmD
 When all it does is slow me down
 GCadd9Am
 Slow me down 

 GCadd9AmD
 Tra la la la la bomba dear this is the pilot speaking
 GCadd9AmD
 And I've got some news for you
 GCadd9AmD
 It seems my ship still stands no matter what you drop
 GCadd9AmD
 And there ain't a whole lot that you can do
 GCadd9AmD
 Oh sure the banner may be torn and wind's gotten colder
 GCadd9AmD
 Perhaps I've grown a little cynical
 GCadd9AmD
 But I know no matter what the waitress brings
 GCadd9AmD
 I shall drink in and always be full
 GCadd9AmD
 My cup shall always be full

 GCadd9AmD
 Oh I like coffee, And I like tea
 GCadd9AmD
 I'd like to be able to enter a final plea
 GCadd9AmD
 still got this dream that you can't shake
 GCadd9AmD
 I love you to the point you can no longer take

 GCadd9
 Well all right okay
 AmD
 So be that way
 GCadd9
 I hope and pray
 AmD
That there's something left to say

(CHORUS) x2
 GCadd9AmD
 But you          
 GCadd9AmD
 Why you wanna give me a run-around
 GCadd9AmD
 Is it a sure-fire way to speed things up
 GCadd9AmD
 When all it does is slow me down
Slow me down
