Don't You Run With Him   (John Sebastian)

When I leave you now
As you know I must
And time gets heavy
As dawn turns to dusk
Go on and find yourself some laughter
But don't you run with him

When I go away
You'll have lots of time
And our friend won't be workin'
There'll be lots on his mind
And you can share his tears and laughter
But don't you run with him

Don't you run with him, cause he's on the run
Don't you run with him, cause you can't catch up
Go on and find yourself some laughter
But don't you run with him

Love is such a tricky thing
Tryin' not to be the jealous kind
And I know it's just a friendly thing
And it helps to pass theses lonely times
You can tease me now

For my lack of trust
You've got so much to give
And I know that you must
Go on and find yourself some laughter
But don't you run with him

Go on and spread your tears and laughter
But don't you run
Don't you run with him
