about

Elijah Jalil is a singer-songwriter based in Missoula, Montana. Originally from the Bay Area (CA), Elijah made his way towards the mountains after studying theater in Portland, OR to work on his Masters of Fine Arts in Acting at the University of Montana. He is a dedicated social justice artist focused on changing the world by creating and collaborating on all forms of art.

Largely inspired by Hip-Hop, R&B, Soul, and other Pop genres, Elijah started his journey with a guitar and his voice. After playing at multiple open mics around Missoula, the consistently magical collaboration with Britt Arnesen helped this debut album, Nothing to Say, come to life.

lyrics

9. RUNNIN’ OUT OF TIME
Words and music by Elijah Jalil

Runnin’ out of time
We runnin’ out of time
You runnin’ out of time
I’m runnin’ out of time

Runnin’ out of time
We runnin’ out of time
You runnin’ out of time
I’m runnin’ out of time

Runnin’ out of time
Runnin’ out of time
Runnin’ out of
Runnin’ out
Runnin’
Run
(You better run muthafucka)

I can feel the pressure I can feel it all around me
If it keeps coming it is gonna compound me
Will it stop soon? That’s very unlikely
Will I give up? Yo, that’s very unlike me

I can feel the pressure I can feel it all around me
If it keeps coming it is gonna compound me
Will it stop soon? That’s very unlikely
Will I give up? Yo, that’s very unlike me

Runnin’ out of time
Runnin’ out of time
Runnin’ out of
Runnin’ out
Runnin’
Run
(You better run muthafucka)

I feel like I’m runnin all the time
That shit was handed down like a fuckin hand me down, yeah
Don’t know why I’m runnin all the time
But it gets me where I’m going, so how can I complain?

I feel like I’m runnin all the time
That shit was handed down like a fuckin hand me down, yeah
Don’t know why I’m runnin all the time
But it gets me where I’m going, so how can I complain?

How can I complain?

Run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run
Run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run
Run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run
Run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run

Runnin, runnin, runnin, but I can’t stop runnin
yeah I’m outside, but I ain’t the function
The government don’t own me, can’t tell me nothin
Nah, nah, they can’t tell me nothin

They on that fuck shit
Better duck, shit,
Here come the bullets and all of the bullshit
Better move, get out my way
I didn’t come to play
Get the fuck out my face

I ain’t come to complain, no
It’s all part of the game, bro
Something wrong my brain, no
But I’m goin insane, okay

Aimin for the fame
Pushin through the pain
Hidin all your shame
Tuck it all away
Nobody sees cuz they all enemies
And they schemin and plottin to leave you no options

Run, jump, and steal
You think that’s all I do, forreal
Everybody has potential to lie, cheat, n kill
That’s the deal

You heard me, it’s all part of the journey
Don’t stop believing and you can achieve it.
Just check how you perceive it

Runnin’ out of time
Runnin’ out of time
Runnin’ out of
Runnin’ out
Runnin’
Run
(You better run muthafucka)

Run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run
Run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run
Run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run
Run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run

Run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run
Run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run
Run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run
Run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run

Runnin’ out of time
