"Runnin'"
Words and Music by Michael B. Hicks

It's like, the closer I get to You...the further away I seem to feel...
And regardless of the good I do, for some reason I just can't be fulfilled
'Cause when I finally seem to get a grip, I tend to stop looking for more
And I find myself starting to slip further from You than I was before...

So I've learned to keep runnin', runnin', chasin', chasin' after you...


Even when I lift my hands in praise...and I lift my voice to tell You "thanks"
I run down Your list of names, but my routine seems to push You further away...
So I say "I bless You, adore You, and magnify Your holy Name..."
But my list of verbs just seems to bore You; my worship is lifeless, and it all sounds the same...

So I've learned to keep runnin', runnin', chasin', chasin' after you...

I'd much rather catch You...knowing that in You I'll find rest...
Than to stop chasing after You...and surely lose my Breath...

So I've learned to keep runnin', runnin', chasin', chasin' after You...
