Let’s Run

Could we please just run away?
Where no one would ever find us,
Where the sun shines bright and the stars shine even brighter.
Nobody cares, who we are.

Let’s run.
At three in the morning when the world stops turning, we’ll run.
And we won’t come home ‘til the world tips over and everything falls back into place.

Let’s run.
Where nobody finds us,
Our past is behind us,
Through wheat fields under silver stars that shine,
We’ll run, just you and I and a dark blue sky.

When the voices won’t stop,
We can’t take anymore,
The world still spins in meaningless circles, tearing holes in fragile hearts,
I’ll come up to meet you,
Reach my arms out to hold you,
I’ll never let go, let’s just run.

Where nobody finds us,
Our past is behind us,
Barefoot on dirt roads at night,
Cool wind in our hair,
Under pale moonlight.
We’ll run, just you and I and a majestic black sky. We’ll run.

Nobody will find us,
Our past is behind us,
On the beach being kissed by the sun,
On our backs we lay laughing,
Fireflies surround us at dawn,

Just you and I and a pale pink sky. We’ll run.

I know it’s a little scary,
To leave what we’ve known behind,
But when day turns to evening and evening to morning,
All I want is to get away.

To someplace where nobody finds us,
Our past? Far behind us.
Where the days are longer,
Our hearts are stronger,
Where the sun shines brighter and the weight gets lighter,
We’ll run ’til our legs give way.
And then it’ll just be you and I, falling under a deep blue sky.

So can we please just run away? Where no one will ever find us…
