I used to run but I wore my shoes out
Got tired of burning
Bridges down
So I learned how to walk fast
how not to look back
But one day
And angel appeared on my shoulder
He said girl can’t you see what you’re doing?
Can’t live your life surrounded by ruin

Come with me to a place of peace
Take some shade underneath an oak tree
There’s a space only love can fill
If you want me to show you I will
You must learn to be silent and still

Next thing I know
I was faced with a stranger
Who was this changer, this rearranger
All of the walls I had carefully constructed were down decomposed
They were worn out and rusted

Said girl can’t you see where this got you?
You’ve walked around acting like someone shot you

Come with me to a place of peace
Kiss the sun in the air we breathe
There is a space only god can fill
You think he won’t but he will
When you learn to be silent and still

Now it’s so quiet I can hear a pin drop
Only sound is the clock that tick tock's
I have some friends
They're like chicken with no heads
Losing their minds
Just to keep their kids fed

Come with me to a place of peace
Listen close to your heart
That beats
Only so many hours to kill
If you wanna find love, you will
When you learn to be silent and still
When you learn to be silent and still
We must learn to be silent and still
