If you ever run away
Would you ever complain?

If you ever run away
You know you could always stay
And I’ll always be with you
For the times you put me through

She’s living with her grandmother
Her mama and brother
23 years old
Hoping for new life to discover
The youngest of 'em
Never smothered as a child
Female superheroes always got the biggest smile
With her style, she got threats for an over-fair complexion
Crazy driver, almost died a couple times at intersections
Graceful mountain, falling offers, conversation
Really simple type, sipping up the information
She don’t get specific, with who it is she kicks it with
Sprouting jealousy out of anybody interested
So I run my tongue against the back of my teeth
And half-eyed smile when I get an hour’s sleep
The power to teach is in each and every relationship
What to learn takes no space between the lips
So shut your shit
And just sip your dry mouth
Listening to the one you care for is what it’s about

If you ever run away
You know you could always stay
And I’ll always be with you
For the times you put me through

I, have, been, abducted by, behaviours ill-advised
And she, waits, for time, to reveal, if it’s still inside
I trust her coin-collecting eyes and her beauty supplies
Uncomfortable with her confidence while not by my side
High-rises and sidewalks, cars where the streets talk
Farmers and beanstalks, forest and treetops
Mountains that goat climb, and stop at a “slow” sign
Construction at O nine hundred, it’s go time
Fuck all the safe zone, she is what she said
And St. Michael as honest, promising he’s next
He wants to be the one to help her away from home life
She’s got her soul right, her family don’t know life
Mother is jealous, crack the kettle pot to behavior
Her uncle stormed through the room, and stepped on her savior
So put out your lamps and candles and just stand and you’ll see
Faking all the good so dark will do to answer your feet
Now which way will I go?
We’ll end up growing to know,
And everything you lived for in the past will bottle up and explode
So if you ever need your space
You know that my non-commit universe is always your place
Told me that she loved my person on the third date
No bullshit, no games, this just all feels great
Upfront with one another and she doesn’t get boring
Last thought of the day, and first as I know in the mornings
Existing in between gravity, and moon’s crescent
Used to stand in front of these piles of new essence

If you ever run away
You know you could always stay
And I’ll always be with you
For the times you put me through

Hey, grace, meet me on the double
Material lies, why am I focused on the trouble?
This trouble, that trouble, any one’s fine,
As long as it’s this girl by my side
Hey, grace, meet me on the double
Material lies, why am I focused on the trouble?
This trouble, that trouble, any one’s fine,
As long as this girl is by my side
