THE KILLERS – Run For Cover lyrics

What have you gotten to report to your progenitors?
Are your excuses any better than your senator’s?
He held a conference while his wife was standing by
He did her dirty but no one died

Saw someone listed on the street last night
Black-fisted and strong singing Redemption Song
I heard heaven and thunder cry

Run for cover
Run while you can baby don’t look back
You gotta run for cover
Don’t be afraid of the fear that’s a plain eyed trap
You know you’re not the only one
And don’t look back just run for cover

What are you waiting for a kiss or an apology?
You think by now you’d have an A in toxicology
It’s hard to crack the call when all you do is shame us
It’s even harder when the dirtbag’s famous

I saw my mother on the street last night
All pretty and strong she said ‘the road is long’
I said ‘Momma I know you’ve tried’
But she fell on her knees and cried

Run for cover
Run while you can baby don’t look back
You gotta run for cover
Don’t be afraid of the fear that’s a plain eyed trap
I know you’re not the only one
And don’t look back just run for cover

And there was nothing she wouldn’t give
Just to trust him with her nightmares, with her dreams
And she’s running, she’s running
Just to trust him
You got big smile, those fake moves
Just run for cover you’ve got nothing left to lose

Run for cover
Run while you can baby don’t look back
You gotta run for cover
Don’t be afraid of the fear that’s a plain eyed trap
You know you’re not the only one
And don’t look back just run for cover
Run
