Runnin'

Album: Departure (2008)
  • Runnin' away runnin' away
    Hey hey hey runnin' away

    I had the perfect girl we'd spend together hours everyday
    You'd say that I had it made and I was all for the commitment
    But then she started wantin' more from me
    And my mind began to change suddenly I didn't feel the same
    I didn't know what I was doing

    I was dodging commitment start but don't finish
    My aim was always the same girl I know I been trippin'
    I'm confessin' I'm confessin' so baby just hear me out
    I'm confessin' I'm confessin' so baby just see me off
    I wanna show my heart but I don't know where to start

    So I keep runnin'
    With real love in my face
    Why am I breakin' away
    I keep runnin'
    So scared of the heartbreak
    So scared of makin' mistakes
    I keep runnin'
    When all I really need is you
    All I really need is you
    But I keep on runnin' away
    Hey hey hey

    I caught a second wind of happiness when I met this girl
    And then we became the best of friends we went
    From half full to half empty I took a detour tryin' to find myself
    But I'm on this road again want out of this box I'm in
    I made it harder to be with me

    I was dodging commitment start but don't finish
    My aim was always the same girl I know I been trippin'
    I'm confessin' I'm confessin' so baby just hear me out
    I'm confessin' I'm confessin' so baby just see me off
    I wanna show my heart but I don't know where to start

    So I keep runnin'
    With real love in my face
    Why am I breakin' away
    I keep runnin'
    So scared of the heartbreak
    So scared of makin' mistakes
    I keep runnin'
    When all I really need is you
    All I really need is you
    But I keep on runnin' away
    Hey hey hey

    I'm 'bout to break down baby I'm done
    No I can't keep up runnin' this marathon
    No need to rest when I already won
    And if I got you by my side girl I already won

    It's like lookin' for a treasure when it's already mine
    It don't make sense don't make sense
    No matter how hard I try to define
    I'm comin' face to face with myself
    I know I don't need don't need no one else
    So can somebody tell me where I'm goin'
    So can somebody tell me where I'm goin'

    I keep runnin'
    With real love in my face
    Why am I breakin' away
    I keep runnin'
    So scared of the heartbreak
    So scared of makin' mistakes
    I keep runnin'
    When all I really need is you
    All I really need is you
    But I keep on runnin' away
    I keep runnin'
    With real love in my face
    Why am I breakin' away
    I keep runnin'
    So scared of the heartbreak
    So scared of makin' mistakes
    I keep runnin'
    When all I really need is you
    All I really need is you
    But I keep on runnin' away
    Hey hey hey
