Lyrics

Johnnys always running around Trying to find certainty He needs all the world to confirm That he aint lonely Mary counts the walls Knows he tires easily Johnny thinks the world would be right If it could buy truth from him Mary says he changes his mind more than a woman But she made her bed Even when the chance was slim Johnny says hes willing to learn When he decides hes a fool Johnny says hell live anywhere When he earns time to Mary combs her hair Says she should be used to it Mary always hedges her bets She never knows what to think She says that he still acts Like he is being discovered Scared that hell be caught Without a second thought Running around Johnny feels hes wasting his breath Trying to talk sense to her Mary says hes lacking a real Sense of proportion So she combs her hair Knows he tires easily Johnny's always running around Trying to find certainty He needs all the world to confirm That he ain't lonely Mary counts the walls Says she should be used to it Johnnys always running around Running around
