You Should Have Seen Me Running

Lyrics: John Dawson
Music: John Dawson

I don't know where it went wrong
But I've been looking for a song
That I lost somewhere out on the way
And it's been the worst of years
I just couldn't count the tears
But I think I hear that melody again today

So you shoulda seen me running
Running all the way
Yeah you should have seen me running
Coming here today
Yeah you should have seen me cryin
Since you've been away
So you should have seen me trying yeah, yeah
To get back here today
Yeah, to get back here today

Well I was happy for a while
And I always had a smile
On my face, to show that love we had
But you thought you ought to go
And I thought you ought to know
That since you've been gone
I never had felt so bad


Well I've been dying for your sweet, sweet loving, yeah
Since you've been away
You should have seen me running, running, running
Coming back today, yeah, yeah
She's coming back today
