2nd Place
“Story Of A Runner”
Logan Humphreys
Clovis, New Mexico

Again I got caught runnin’;
Runnin’ nowhere fast.
The damage just don’t matter
When I turn my back.

Some might say heart-breaker,
Somethin’ like a storm.
I love it til I bend it;
Bend it til it’s torn.

I wish someone could help me,
Help me fix myself.
Surround by pages of love songs
And it’s a living hell.

So watch out for that runner
Get lost while you can
Guard your hearts, take cover
Don’t try to catch this man.

Save me from that feeling,
From falling in that hole.
The reason I started running
The reason I don’t come home.

The worst disposition
A battle with myself
I talk but they can’t listen
I’m far beyond their help.

Some say I’m a lover
But I am just a mess
The story of a runner
The story I confess

So watch out for that runner
Get lost while you can
Guard your hearts take cover
Don’t try to catch this man.

Someone could catch that runner.
Surely someone will..
Everyone’s a lover
Once they get their fill
