Track 4 of 5 in the EP 'Shallows'. A concept album of love, betrayal and heartbreak.
Exhausted by the hate that has consumed you and the sadness that fills you. Everywhere you turn you see her face. Her memory haunts your every living moment. It's time to out-run this ghost. It will take time, it will be a marathon.
"If time is the healer, I am so sick of wishing my life away."


It's a waiting game,
how long till I find I'm safe again?
If it's time that heals then I am so sick wishing my life away.
It's a poltergeist, in my mind that haunts my nights.
Not the type in sheets of white but a little tort feeling that I can't fight.

Its a marathon, and I'm running from you and your ghost that haunts everything I do.
I hope, I hope you know that I'll be fine. This time gonna run and not just hide.
Cos tonight I'm gonna outrun your ghost,
and these feelings that I hate the most,
exorcise these demons in my mind, and free myself tonight.

It's a purpose built
infected memory that keeps me ill
If you're the artist
the masterpiece is how I feel.
Well I'll keep running, a little out of breath but there's no stopping
till you chase and seek for me, just to find that you'll never catch me.

I keep on running.
