HOOK

When the record fades
And the room clears out
And there's no more liquor in the bottle
What will you do now?
Is this where you hide
Because you've been running
And there's no one left for you to follow
Give up the chase and wait
Cause you can't run
You can't run from God
You can't run
You can't run
You can't run from God (2x)

VERSE 1

I remember, member when I first heard your voice
I was five years old
Oh Lord oh Lord how I missed that voice
But now I avoid cause I hate it
Cause I hate it when I hear you speak
Now I'm drunk in the club turnt up
Tell the DJ turn up
I can hear you over my beat
Lord, don't talk to me
Cause this cute boy here is tryna to talk to me
And he all in my ear saying “girl you the best one here”
And he really wanna rock with me
And now You all in my ear saying walk with me
Quit chasing me quit stalking me
I just want to have fun
Girls want to live it up
But it's no fun with you watching me
Are you mad?
Maybe ashamed?
Did you erase my name
From the scroll to the pearly gates
I'll be outside playing games of spades
Half bottle of Jack left
And I don't even like the taste
I just want to erase all the pain I face from the world I can't escape

HOOK

When the record fades
And the room clears out
And there's no more liquor in the bottle
What will you do now?
Is this where you hide
Because you've been running
And there's no one left for you to follow
Give up the chase and wait
Cause you can't run
You can't run from God
You can't run
You can't run
You can't run from God (2x)

VERSE 2

I know you know the truth
But I'm ashamed to say
I've been ducking and diving and running and hiding
And messing my life up in major ways
It's major pain, but I
Feel the red dot on my head Jedi
You target me with that laser
But I keep runnin like I'm going to find something better
Never I know nothing brings more pleasure
Then Alpha Omega
This world got me on old games like Sega
They say out there's my buried treasure 
In the bottom of a bottle or when I control the weather
Make It rain chase cheese like feta
Or when I get G5 high
More stoned than Rosetta
But when I come down I'm wiping my brow
I'm sweating from running it hits me like a bow
All he ever wanted was for me to bow
And to take my crown
Meet him at the altar dressed in my white gown
So he can announce that we are pronounced
Kill all of my doubts
Take me to his house
So I can live our the rest of my days in the clouds

HOOK

When the record fades
And the room clears out
And there's no more liquor in the bottle
What will you do now?
Is this where you hide
Because you've been running
And there's no one left for you to follow
Give up the chase and wait
Cause you can't run
You can't run from God
You can't run
You can't run
You can't run from God (2x)
