Running from Life

It's time to hide away,

Far, far away,

Where reality can't come,

Never to go back to where I'm from.

x

The past haunts,

The ghost that taunts,

Keeps me from leaving,

Keeps me heaving.

x

It holds me here,

Captive in my fear,

What will tomorrow bring?

Will I even be able to sing?

x

She gives me her last look,

It holds me like a hook,

She gives me her last will,

It was left to me to fulfill.

x

Take my children in your arms,

Take them in from all harms,

Tell them daily,

You're my Matt and Bailey.
