The Lyrics

This song was playing in the movie "Forrest Gump" during the running sequence, specifically as Forrest narrates "I thought about Jenny; I thought about her a lot" ....... This OS is one of those songs, like "Everybody Wants to Rule The World", that has great melody and great vocals along with a couple of great lyrics. But it also has a lot of trite lyrics, so you can hijack the song to great effect ...... BTW, I choked up a little composing this song, so if you're familiar with the movie and OS, watch out. ... This is a genuine lament
Say, where you running to
Bro, what you wanna find
She dint think you man enough
To shield her from Daddy's crimes
From here, we can see your heartbreak
Bro, she got you all wrong
You have got to hurry
She's been carousing too long

I dont have the means to heal your heart
From appalling tale of woe, Oh buddy

She keeps you running, yeah, she keeps you running (She keep you running)
She keeps you running, yeah, she keeps you running (She keeps you running)
She keeps you running, yeah, she keeps you running (Shake it off)
She keeps you running, yeah, she keeps you running

Oh, you will find your love
She wants your loving care
Bro, but what happens to you next
God, furthest thing from fair
Now you have to mourn her
For the rest of your years
But you got little Forrest
To help you through this vale of tears

You must find a way to steel your heart
From appalling tale of woe, Aw Forrest

She keeps you mourning, yeah, she keeps you mourning (hey, yeah)
She keeps you mourning, yeah, she keeps you mourning
(I feel for you, buddy)
She keeps you mourning, yeah, she keeps you mourning (She keeps you mourning) ...

Thanks, 'Slaught-man. I think you need to have grown up with this song to catch what I'm doing; actually it's more like something you feel
