The husband-wife, power-couple duo of Thompson Square have been married for 15 years, but their latest single, “I Can’t Outrun You,” is one of those gut-wrenchingly painful songs about the angst of ending a relationship.

“I Can’t Outrun You” is from their sophomore Just Feels Good album.

95 down the interstate

Mile high on a jet plane

A desert road or a downtown train

It’s all the same, I can’t outrun you

I can move to another town

Where nobody’d ask where you are now

LA or Mexico

No matter where I go, I can’t outrun you

You’re in my heart, you’re in my mind

Everywhere ahead, everywhere behind

Every turn I take,

You’re right around the bend

It’s like your ghost is chasing me

When I’m awake, when I’m asleep

There’s a part of you in every part of me

And I can’t outrun you

I can’t outrun you

I had a chance with a boy or two

But all I ever saw was you

You’re holding my hand, kissing my face

I guess some memories never fade

You’re in my heart, you’re in my mind

Everywhere ahead, everywhere behind

Every turn I take,

You’re right around the bend

It’s like your ghost is chasing me

When I’m awake, when I’m asleep

There’s a part of you in every part of me

And I can’t outrun you

I can’t outrun you

I thought there just might come a time

I wouldn’t regret telling you goodbye

If there was I’ll never know

No matter where I go I can’t outrun you
