Dear Emily,
I don't think I believe in you anymore
It's a mystery, but what I'm seeing I haven't seen before

And with these tears you loose the last of my restraints
Cover your eyes
She said run but I'm not running, no I'm not running
Let 'em come, let 'em come, but I'm not running. No, I ain't running no more

So you're asking me to see the truth as before
But if it hasn't occurred to you yet, this could be the past
The past no more

And if these tears should prove the last of my escape
Cover your eyes
She said run, but I'm not running no I'm not running
Let 'em come, let 'em come but I'm not running, no, I ain't running no more
No more

The trees have all begun the dance elated by a second chance
But when a windmill blows it's not hooked up to anything except a breeze

She said run, but I'm not running, no
She said run, she said run, (run away, run away, run!) she said run, (run away, run away, run!)
she said run, but I'm not running, no I ain't running no more

    Song MeaningLee Marie said this song is about facing your problems head-on instead of running away from them. she also said the album has a couple of movie references in it, and some of the lyrics remind me of "Shutter island". for example "she said "run", but i'm not running." and "so you're asking me to see the truth as before." but then again, children 18:3 were already recording the album the same month that "Shutter island" came out. so it's probably just a coincidence... but an awesome coincidence.
