"My Heart Escapes" as written by Howard Benson and Blindside,....
The smell of water on the sidewalk
And the breath of rain in my lungs
To meet you after this long time
Tells me I'm not that young
Not a word
Spoken from your lips or mine
You're like a dream
I thought I left behind

I shouldn't sleep
I should wake up

I never meant to give it away
My heart escapes and I try
To catch it when it runs to you
So here
Here I stand in silence
With bloodstains on my raincoat
My heart escapes
My heart escapes and runs to you

You're still the same
Underneath those gray clothes I gave you
And your photo remains in my wallet
You are
Planting seeds of color in my ground
Do I dare to stay or do I walk away
I wish I was safe and sound

I shouldn't sleep
I should wake up

I never meant to give it away
My heart escapes and I try
To catch it when it runs to you
So here
Here I stand in silence
With bloodstains on my raincoat
My heart escapes
Catch it
Catch it when it runs to you
Catch it when it runs to you
Catch it when it runs to you

There is still rain
In my heart
And the blood is see-through like water
But I'll still wear your ring
On my finger
And you'll still wear mine

I never meant to give you away
My heart escapes and I should have tried
To catch it and run to you
Catch it and run to you
Here I stand in silence
With bloodstains on my raincoat
My heart escapes
My heart escapes and runs to you
Runs to you
Runs to you

Catch me when I run to you
