"Run Away" as written by and Ingo Rheinbay Tilmann Otto....
Why are you so ungrateful
You nuh see that Jah give we life after all
Check yourself before you wreck yourself
Me see that Jah Jah give we life after all
Still none a dem nuh give no thanks at all
Dem think dem a rise me see dem a fall
Fall dem a fall, fall dem a fall

How long you want to go run away
Run away from yourself you nuh see that truth ago reveal
And every day you got to pray, well that you fi go do
And make your life one a the real

How you fi expect love and you still a glorify the gun
How you want clarity if acoke you nuh stop bun
Your dirty lifestyle nuh give you no way to turn
You still nuh realize that you wrong

After you come out of your church you beat your baby mother down
And then you tell her you're sorry but your head did full a rum
She couldn't tek your excuse and your flattering tongue
That's why she left you today and still a ask

How long you want to go run away
Run away from yourself you nuh see that truth ago reveal
And every day you got to pray, well that you fi go do
And make your life one a the real

How long you want to go run away
Run away from yourself you nuh see that truth ago reveal
And every day you got to pray, well that you fi go do
And make your life one a the real

Dem say dem a the dolphin but me see dem a the shark
Dem stand ina the spotlight and live in the dark
Claim say dem grounded but me see dem a skylark
So to me dem can't talk

In this time and this ages man hafi be smart
Think before you talk and watch the road wha' you a walk
From you look ina your conscience you can't miss the mark
And make a joyful sound unto the Lord

How long you want to go run away
Run away from yourself you nuh see that truth ago reveal
And every day you got to pray, well that you fi go do
And make your life one a the real

How long you want to go run away
Run away from yourself you nuh see that truth ago reveal
And every day you got to pray - well that you fi go do
And make your life one a the real

'Nough a dem me see dem can teach
Dem hufi go back a school so a no me dem can teach
A fi dem dirty talk dem call it freedom of speech
Me wonder who dem try reach

Righteousness uno fi go check it
Golong and do some good ina Your life wickedness uno fileft it
Clean heart always will make it
And from you see a chance ina your life
You better take it nuh reject it

    General Commenti can't believe that nobody wrote a comment for this song. The song is great. I think it's about running away from problems. We are all doing it from time to time!! :)
