Run Away

from by David Allen Slater

/

about

This song is about communication and the lack of it that happens in a relationship at times when people are unwilling to face things and move forward.

I wrote this originally for a friend with a child who suffers from Autism. As much as that part of the song means to me, over the years it has grown into so much more for so many other people that have heard it and for that I am very grateful.

I CAN'T SEE THE FUTURE
I ONLY SEE THE PAIN I CAUSED FOR YOU
WHY DON'T YOU SLIP AWAY
LIKE THEY ALWAYS DO

YOU SAY YOU UNDERSTAND ME
ACCEPTING WHO I AM AND WHO I USED TO BE
BUT I DON'T KNOW JUST WHY
WHY YOUR SO GOOD TO ME

CHORUS:
AND MAYBE YOUR THE ONE
BUT I CAN'T TELL ANYMORE
I USED TO FEEL SO DEEPLY
AND YOU'D JUST RUN AND RUN SOME MORE
OH RUN AWAY
YEAH RUN AWAY
OH RUN AWAY
WHY DO YOU RUN SO FAR AWAY

HOURS EVERLASTING
ENTWINING BOTH OUR HEARTS AND SHARING TIME
IT ALWAYS PASSED SO QUICKLY
IN THE TWINKLING OF AN EYE

BOTH OF US SO HAPPY
WHAT CAN I DO TO SHOW YOU THE WAY
I SEE HIS LITTLE FEET ARE FLYING
FLYING OFF THE GROUND AGAIN TODAY

AND MAYBE YOUR THE ONE
BUT I CAN'T TELL ANYMORE
I USED TO FEEL SO DEEPLY
AND YOU'D JUST RUN AND RUN SOME MORE

END CHORUS:
OH RUN AWAY
YEAH RUN AWAY
OH RUN AWAY
WHY DO YOU RUN SO FAR AWAY
OH RUN AWAY
YEAH RUN AWAY
OH RUN AWAY
WHY DO YOU RUN SO FAR AWAY
