Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit – Running with Our Eyes Closed lyrics

It took forever to get you to trust me
Like I was feeding a bird from my hand
And if this isn’t love than it must be
Another answer I don’t understand
To a prayer that was please and not thank you
To a question I wrote in the sand
To a wish that I made on a satellite
From a witness in tears on the stand

We’re running with our eyes closed
We’re running with our eyes closed

Well you are who you are when you’re angry
When your scard or you’re sad or you’re bored
When a stranger has slipped you a room key
To a hotel room you couldn’t afford

We can never go back and be strangers
All our secrets are mixed and distilled
But you’ve taught me to temper my anger
And you’ve learned it’s alright to be still

We’re running with our eyes closed
We’re running with our eyes closed
We’re running with our eyes closed
We’re running with our eyes closed

Sleeping on my own
When you won’t forgive me
Swallowing my pride until I nearly choke
Screaming at the phone
“Why don’t you believe me?”
Laughing at the joke

We’re running with our eyes closed
We’re running with our eyes closed
We’re running with our eyes closed
We’re running with our eyes closed
