"Running" as written by and David Vincent/allmand Williams....
[Chorus]
Tell me what you're running from, she said everything and everyone
Tell me what you're running from, what you're running from
Tell me what you're running from because your past it can't be undone
Oh tell me what you're running from, what you're running from

She wakes up every morning, thoughts weighing heavy on her mind
She's hoping today will be a better day than the ones behind
She's having some trouble getting going, from the fear she's paralyzed
She puts her face into her hands and then she cries

She's so tired, she closes her eyes
Trying to live up to a standard that the world provides
She's so tired, she closes her eyes
Trying to live up to a standard that the world provides

[Chorus]

No hope for tomorrow, no hope for today
No hope for anything that comes her way
She's so used to feeling empty inside
No reasons to live, more reasons to die
At least that's what she feels inside
Will she ever find the courage to change

She's so tired, she closes her eyes
Trying to live up to a standard that the world provides
She's so tired, she closes her eyes
Trying to live up to a standard that the world provides

She's been running away so long, running away from home
Will she ever get back, I don't know, no I don't know
You can see it in her eyes and you can see it in her smile

[Chorus]

    General CommentGreat song. Love how it reminds me of so many different emotions, especially this girl I dated. She is so torn up and depressed inside from past transgressions, particularly in her childhood. Not to mentions her constant abuse of pills to improve her mood :/

    This song is so on point in how she old me she feels on a daily basis. And Hopefully, adding this song to her mix can give her some perspective on her outlook in life, and just maybe, give her the courage to grow, and change:)

    Ps: will post updates, once I give it some time to settle in and take effect :)
