"I'd Run Away" as written by and Gary Michael/olson Louris....
I could take a hint from you
I could take a little hint from you
And I'd run away
I'd run away with you baby

You said a couple things to me
You said a couple things that showed your place
But how many ways
How many ways can I say it
Yeah how many ways
How many ways can I say it

So we had a little baby boy
But we knew it wouldn't last too long
Kind of what I had in mind
But what I had in mind was strong

I recall a side of you
I recall a different side of you
But I'd run away
I'd run away with you baby
I'd run away
I'd run away with you baby

So we had a little baby boy
But we knew it wouldn't' last too long
Kind of what I had in mind
But what I had in mind was strong

I could take a hint from you
I could take a little hint from you
And I'd run away
I'd run away with you baby
Yeah I'd run away
I'd run away with you baby
Yeah I'd run away
I'd run away
I'd run away with you baby

Yeah I'd run away
(I'd run away)
I'd run away with you baby
Yeah I'd run away
(I'd run away)
I'd run away with you baby

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite songs, it's an incredible tune. I think the song is about the murkiness around finding the woman of your dreams and how it gets mired in day to day reality. He's found someone that he clearly loves, "I'd run away with you baby," but at the same time, in reality it's not quite perfect, "kind of what I had in mind, but what I had in mind was strong." As if he's quite certain that he's not certain what he's found. Even the beauty of having a son, isn't strong enough to keep together what he's no longer certain of, "you said a couple things to me" which was enough to fuel his doubt, but despite it all, there's a yearning to run away with her, if she'd only hint that's what she wants. It's as if they have these inner souls that yearn for each other, yet their external selves are imperfect and despite having a child, they're not going to make it... so hopeful, yet so sad...
