Nathan Trent — “Running on Air”

“Running on Air” lyrics

It’s been a long time running, ’cause I had some things to see
I had to meet some people who were there to believe in me
I’m taking all that struggle, reminds me of what I’m fighting for
I’m living it up, I ain’t gonna stop, ’til I make that final score

And I’ll keep running…as far as I can
I’ll keep running…I won’t stop, I won’t stop (no, no)

Hey now, if you push me down I’ll get up again
Hey now, if you let me drown I’ll swim like a champion
I’m sure, there’ll be good times, there’ll be bad times
But I don’t care…’cause I’m running on air

Give me a million reasons, and my answer stays the same
You can try to put me in a box, but I’m doing it my own damn way
See I can’t stand them talkers, all pretending that their life’s a mess
’cause whatever you want, whatever you need, you gotta get off your…

And I’ll keep running…as far as I can
I’ll keep running…I won’t stop, I won’t stop

Hey now, if you push me down I’ll get up again
Hey now, if you let me drown I’ll swim like a champion
I’m sure, there’ll be good times, there’ll be bad times
But I don’t care…’cause I’m running on air

Hey, I’m running on air
Running, running on air
(O-oh) Running, running, now I don’t care…

Hey now, if you push me down I’ll get up again
Hey now, hey now
Yea-ah

You can push me, push me down
Hey now, but I’ll get up again
I’m sure, there’ll be good times, there’ll be bad times
But I don’t care…’cause I’m running on air
