"Run" as written by and Kathleen Margaret Edwards....
Oh, my child thirty years today
You came into my life
And everything changed
If there's one thing I tried to teach you
Girl, don't you waste your time
Come this September
You'll be somebody's wife

I won't paint a picture
Of what you want to see
Love is the harder times
Take it from me

I would run down the lane
And into the night
Run so fast I swear my feet would fly
Run from my babies asleep in their beds
Run from my lover and my best friend
And back again

All of this courage
I've tried so hard to hold on to
Ever since that day
You and your brother left for school
They say just over that hill
The fog rolled in
Come quick doctor
We think somebody's been killed

I have been a healer
Of other people's pain
I know sometimes you don't like
The ways I've changed

But the smell of the world came into my lungs
The sound of the gravel when my legs went numb
And my heart nearly burst right out of my chest
And it felt so good to know I wasn't dead

    General CommentOne of the best tracks off the new album. Sounds like a more upbeat "The Lone Wolf" to me...

    General CommentI just saw Kathleen in concert yesterday in Kent Ohio and she told us how this song came to be. She was going out to
    eat for her best friend's 30th birthday. At the resterant, she was talking to her best friend's mom who she has
    known since she was a child. Recently Kathleen had taken up jogging and when her friend's mom asked what was new
    she told her this. Then her friend's mom said that she used to run all of the time. She then proceeded to tell a
    story that non of her own children had heard before. In the imddle of the ngiht sometimes, she would go for a run
    down the street. She would run and run until she would collaspe into the street itself. She felt that when she ran
    all of her troubles melted away. After she literally couldn't run anymore, she would turn around and run back home.
    This story is what Kathleen modled her song after. In the song is talks about what her child came into her life 30
    years ago, which is how old Kathleen friend was. It is a great song and it was terrific to hear live
