Run Away From It All

Album: Find a Light (2018)
  • Standin' on a bridge, see the water keep flowin' by, by
    I flipped a quarter in the river, then I headed for the other side, side
    I made the same wish that I always do
    I'm just fool enough to think they ever come true
    Came in like a lion, now I'm out like a lamb
    They don't even know who I am

    Miles and miles wide open for me
    Got it all laid out so beautifully
    Don't you worry 'bout a thing, baby, we can run away from it all

    Old ghost whistle in the wind in the dead of night, night
    I'm walkin' through the valley of the shadow headin' for the light, light
    I wore out my welcome like I always do
    Got to find myself a life that's shiny new
    They say that the truth is gonna set us free
    I ain't waitin' 'round to see

    Miles and miles wide open for me
    Got it all laid out so beautifully
    Don't you worry 'bout a thing, baby, we can run away from it all
    Squeezin' every drop outta what's left of my time
    Jumpin' on tormorrow before it goes by
    No matter what they say, babe, we can run away from it all

    Miles and miles wide open for me
    Got it all laid out so beautifully
    Don't you worry 'bout a thing, baby, we can run away from it all
    Squeezin' every drop outta what's left of my time
    Jumpin' on tormorrow before it goes by
    No matter what they say, babe, we can run away from it all Writer/s: Charles Webb Gray, Keith Edward Nelson
