I never thought I’d run into you again
You’ve haunted me through so many different faces
I never thought I’d hafta fight you again
But whoever I use, it’s you filling the empty spaces
After all the years and the different things I’ve done
However many times I think I’ve found the one
I always keep running right back into you again

And every time the light may seem brighter
But when it dies out, it’s always so dark
Each new cycle I fail to see just who you are
And every time I try my damnedest
To keep your people safe and warm
A lost cause, like chasing a shooting star
Like chasing a dream

I never thought I’d run into you again
But you shine your darkness through so many hearts
I never thought I’d hafta fight you again
Never learned how to recognize you each new start
And after all the pain and all the times I’ve lost
No matter how many times the stars be crossed
I just keep running right back into you again

And every time the light may seem brighter
But when it dies out, it’s always so dark
Each new cycle I fail to see just who you are
And every time I try my damnedest
To keep your people safe and warm
A lost cause, like chasing a shooting star
Like chasing a dream

I never thought I’d run into you again
But you’re hard to miss, being everything and everyone
I never thought I’d hafta fight you again
But I will, sure as the rising and setting of the sun
And after all is said and done it’s not me
And whether or not it’s you, I just can’t see
But I just keep running right back into you again

And every time the light may seem brighter
But when it dies out, it’s always so dark
Each new cycle I fail to see just who you are
And every time I try my damnedest
To keep your people safe and warm
A lost cause, like chasing a shooting star
Like chasing a dream

I never thought I’d run into you again
You’ve haunted me through a hundred different faces
I never thought I’d hafta fight you again
And I’m always left with all these empty spaces
I’ve made mistakes, God knows this much is true
But at least I could never be quite so cold as you
 . . . again?
