[Intro]
E


[Verse]
(E)                                 F#m
It's been years since they told her about it
    A                   E
The darkness her body possessed
                                     F#m
And the scars are still there in the mirror
     A                         B
Everyday that she gets herself dressed
           C#m                     B
Though the pain is miles and miles behind her
        A                    B
And the fear is now a docile beast
       A
If you ask her why she is still running
       B                        \
She'll tell you it makes her complete


[Chorus]
          E
I run for hope
         B
I run to feel
              C#m
I run for the truth
                A
For all that is real
               E                         B
I run for your mother, your sister, your wife
          C#m           A~                E
I run for you and me my friend, I run for life


[Verse]
(E)                            F#m
It's a blur since they told me about it
        A                      E
How the darkness had taken its toll
                                   F#m
And they cut into my skin and they cut into my body
              A                       B
But they will never get a piece of my soul
    C#m                        B
And now I'm still learning the lesson
   A                     B
To awake when I hear the call
           A
And if you ask me why I am still running
     B
I'll tell you I run for us all


[Chorus]
          E
I run for hope
         B
I run to feel
              C#m
I run for the truth
                A
For all that is real
               E                         B
I run for your mother, your sister, your wife
          C#m           A                 E
I run for you and me my friend, I run for life


[Interlude]
E  E  A  A  C#m  C#m  F#m  F#m  A  A~


[Verse]
        E                     F#m
And someday if they tell you about it
       A                       E
If the darkness knocks on your door
                F#m
Remember her, remember me
A
We will be running as we have before

Running for answers
B               \
Running for more


[Chorus]
          E
I run for hope
         B
I run to feel
              C#m
I run for the truth
                A
For all that is real
               E                         B
I run for your mother, your sister, your wife
          C#m           A
I run for you and me my friend


[Chorus]
          E
I run for hope
         B
I run to feel
              C#m
I run for the truth
                A
For all that is real
               E                         B
I run for your mother, your sister, your daughter, your wife
          C#m           A                 E
I run for you and me my friend, I run for life


[Outro]
E  B  C#m  A
               E                         B
I run for your mother, your sister, your wife
          C#m           A                 E~
I run for you and me my friend, I run for life
