"I Won't Run Away" as written by and Matthew Pryor....
Walk away today, I must leave you behind
Like we've waltzed around the words so many times
We remind in time the motions will repeat
But the distance doesn't finalize defeat

So it goes
There's a weight that never seems to let it go
And I'm passing through the atmosphere like smoke

On the way today, you're free from town to town
Every anecdote I lift gets written down
Every letter ever sent her does remind
That our memories are always on my mind

So it stays
Wait for the world to stop and I won't run away
Wait for the world to stop and I won't run away
Wait for the world to stop and I won't run away
At least not today

    General CommentI can't believe no one has commented on this song. My girlfriend and I are very far apart 90% of the time She lives in Germany and me in the states. This fits perfectly with our situation. (In my head anyway) Walk away today i must leave you behind... the distance doesn't finalize defeat. Just a wonderful song. I love you tina.

    afrayed from town to town
    I don't know, thats just how it sounds to me

    every anticdote i lift gets written down

    Once again this could go either way

    General Commenti think that "free from town to town" could be "afraid from time to time" again, thats just how it sounds to me. i think this song is about that no distance between lovers can effect their feelings for each other. it is a beautiful song

    General CommentIt is a song about devotion. When we are far apart and times are hard, I won't run away. When things are tough and we are fighting, I will stay and work things out. That's what it says to me. Sometimes not running away is the hardest thing to do (or not do as the case may be) and it really shows how much you truely care to never give up hope.
