When the sun just starts to rise
In the big city outside these streets
The sun sets on the ocean
Fights the traffic but traffic defeats

And when the early risers get their coffee
When the morning glories bloom
That’s when the wind starts blowing
And sweeps up all the gloom

There is a light that’s leading me
To the place where I find peace
There is a bird that I grip firmly
But someday will release

And there is a hope that keeps me trusting
Keeps me holding those fidgeting dreams
There is a cover that will shield me
From that past of blood and screams

And my life is not a coloring book
For someone to color in the lines
These streets to not mark the end of my success
Neither do the traffic lights or stop signs

I know there is a life out there somewhere
Out side the edge of the town
I could find it if I just felt like leaving
But I have so much that’s keeping me down

Runaway sunshine
Runaway rain
Run away anger
Runaway pain

Runaway future
Runaway past
Runaway quickly
Runaway fast

Lonely days make for lonely nights

Runaway sunshine

Oh, runaway, runaway
