The Hunted

I am so tired
If only I could stay here for a while
but I have to go on
run for my life
If I want to live another day
and watch another sunrise

I am so tired
If only I could lie down for a while
but my breath comes faster
my world has become a little dimmer
If only they would give up
I could be free again

I am so tired
If only I could rest for a while
but they will not leave me be
and I cannot run anymore
If only I could see my family again
if only..
