about

Running From Something is an ultimately uplifting song about coming to an understanding of your own faults and accepting that everyone is carrying some kind of weight.

lyrics

Running From Something

Yesterday I was so blue, lord I felt like dying
And the rain came down so beautiful. I felt like crying
So I drove down to the river just to see it flowing
And I swear to god, as I watched it looked like it was running
Like it was running from something
Running from something
Running, running, running

Yesterday I scratched at the blue just to see what was hurting
And under the blood and the tears
Well it seems I found something worth learning
But you know it strikes me kind of funny that it’s you
Teaching the lesson
‘Cos in those big brown eyes
You know I see the same fear
That self-same wandering
You look like you’re running from something
Running from something
Running, running, running
I know you’re running from something
Running from something
Running, running, running

Oh why you gotta be so mean?
I just want to warm your lonely nights but you leave me cold
Oh why you gotta be so reckless?
Playing with my heart
Oh darling you leave me low
So low

Yesterday I was so blue, lord I felt like dying
And the rain came down so beautiful. I felt like crying
So I drove down to the river just to see it flowing
And I swear to god
As I watched it washed all my running
It cleaned me of my running from something
Running from something
Running, running, running
Running from something
Running from something
Running, running, running
Running, running, running
Running, running, running
