"When I Run" as written by and Donald Ewing (pka Skip Ewing)....
When I see the way you look at love I feel so blind
'Cause I don't know how to give that much to you
And when I think of what it means to love forever I get scared
That I won't be strong enough to see it through
And about that time I don't know what to do

And when I run, it's only cause I don't know how to stay
I don't know how to get my feelings out of my way
It's not you, and it's not fun
I know tryin' to hide is crazy
Walking out won't save me
My demons only chase me when I run

In your arms I am sound and safe from my own harm
Or at least you always make me feel that way
It's only when I turn away from you that I get lost
My mind lets some old hurt get in the way
I stop listening to what my heart has to say

And when I run, it's only cause I don't know how to stay
I don't know how to get my feelings out of my way
It's not you, and it's not fun
I know tryin' to hide is crazy
Walking out won't save me
My demons only chase me when I run

And how, tell me can I turn around
And face these feelings chasing after me
And why are there still so many things
You know about that I can't even see?

And when I run, it's only cause I don't know how to stay
I don't know how to get my feelings out of my way
It's not you, and it's not fun
I know tryin' to hide is crazy
Walking out won't save me
My demons only chase me when I run
