You don't have to see me in the morning
To know where I come from
You don't have to read the pages
To understand what's going on
I'm a runner, I'm a runner of the dawn.


Open your eyes and take a long look
See the faces smile,
A grin to take the pain they mistook.
Remember when there were days of love?
Remember when we said enough was enough?


Listen to the voices when they tell you what you need to know
Tongues coil round stories as the recount them
Blow by blow.
Remember when, peace fought to stop war?
Remember when, everyone was who was cared for?
