lyrics

The Chase:

Verse One:

Here he comes, run as fast as I can, I gotta scram, from the hit-man, never look back/ Gotta go now, can't make a sound or he'll hound me down in my tracks/And catch me in the dark, and shoot me in the heart, and leave another scar, these memoirs of love and war/I'm a fragility, soon a casualty, and you'll be the death of me/Mr. Hitman, Mr. Hitman, please go away far away please let me be/(ooo-wah) I'm duckin' and dodgin', I'm gone you see/(ooh-wah) Just one shot and I'm gone indeed/ So before you bombard, I gotta guard the small part that's left in me/ If I camouflage with my broken heart maybe you won't see me/Roger that, 10-4, code red, don't surrender/Enemy, in pursuit, of my heart so tender

Chorus:
Can't catch me, can't catch me no, can't catch me can't catch me no

Girl what you runnin' from?/ You know that you can't never hide from love/ when it comes, when it comes, you can't run, you can't run, no

Can't catch me, can't catch me no, can't catch me can't catch me no


Verse Two
(Mojo):
My damsel in distress, look you can't run for long/Let this love guide you home back to where you belong/I know you can't just rid them thoughts of how he did you wrong/In a minute you gon' be chasin' me, so come along/And follow me as I, invade you mentally/Erase them thoughts about the first time he kissed you/Then, replace them thoughts with how I, wanna be with you/Pretty soon you'll see this love was tailor-made to perfect fit you
(Bonnie):
Yeah I heard that all before, that's what the last hit-man he told me/Before you know, that damn love spell he cast, yeah it controlled me/So if I have a say in it, love won't have it's way again/Not if I can help it, I'mma keep runnin' till I dead end

Chorus:

Girl what you runnin' from?/ You know that you can't never hide from love, when it comes, when it comes, you can't run, you can't run, no

Can't catch me, can't catch me no, can't catch me can't catch me no

Verse Three:
Okay my feet are tired/Hope hit-man's gun misfires/Okay stay calm, don't fret, maybe I will go left, no he's right there, that shyster/Oh what am I gonna do? Oh love makes me so confused/Maybe I will give in, fall back in love again, but I'll go out a fighter

Bridge:

Keep runnin' gone gone keep runnin' gone/Don't let him catch you run like a marathon/Don't let him see your fear, don't let him see you fright/Just keep runnin' run run run for your life (2x)

(scat break)

The hit man done got me, he got me he shot me (2x)
