[Verse 1]
The phone was ringing for an hour or so
When I heard your voice in Tokyo say
“Promise you won’t do this anymore”
You’ve always given sound advice
And tried not to catastrophise
But honestly, I couldn’t face the thought
[Chorus]
Of that familiar feeling
When your heart is healing, Theodor
I just keep on running from it all
[Verse 2]
I think I’ll work from home today
I feel like quitting anyway
So, give me nothing ventured, nothing gained
This year blew my world apart
Admin with a broken heart
Last orders at a Kōenji Station bar
[Chorus]
That familiar feeling
When your heart is healing, Theodor
I just keep on running from it all
[Bridge]
It takes a lifetime
To begin to forget
I don’t think I’m ready
I don’t think I’m ready
So painful
Take me back to the start
The stillness of a lonely healing heart
[Outro]
That familiar feeling
When your heart is healing, Theodor
I just keep on running from it all
