Acrid, the smell of burning rubber is a daily feature
When I throw myself into reverse
Check out of my surroundings, backin' up so blindly
My back to the universe
Like a ship out of commission
Like an arrow always missing 
I'm always missing

I'm trying to lie like a pro and I know
It looks easy from the outside
But it's hard to hold your brow just so, enough to show
I've got other places to go tonight
Like a record slowly twisting
Like an arrow always missing
I'm always whistling by

But it's you, it's you
I wanna run into you
I wanna run into
Like the wind blowing in through your cold room
I will get the door on the way through
Ooh-ooh

Tragic, the messages I send, my mind post-midnight
Are showing seen but no reply
So I mash the keys a million times for a million years and 
Maybe by chance, I'll say it right
Closing in on your middle distance
Filling quivers with ammunition 
But I'm always missing

You, you (you)
I wanna run into you (you)
I wanna run into
Like the light burning bright in your hard heart
I won't make a sound when I go dark
Ooh-ooh

Can you see me through?
Do you hear me scratching at the outlines of you?
I feel your heartbeat from a mile away
(Like it knows what I'm trying to say)
Trying to say (I'm trying to say)

It's you, you
I wanna run into you
I wanna run into you, you (you)
I wanna run into you (you)
I wanna run into you (you)
You (you)
I wanna run into you (you)
I wanna run into you (you)
