"Running" as written by and Sonya Kitchell Malcolm Burn....
I'm not ready to paint my face
And cover all that lies beneath
If that disappoints you I'm sorry to say
I will be no accomplice to a thief.

Just like this river that flows in between
Or the wrecks and the brambles in the waves
You can build a dam, you can force it upstream
But the water, always gets away.

[Chorus]
I been runnin' from, I'm runnin' from
The fear I'll lose myself in what I've become
And I don't wanna be under the gun
Please give me the strength to find I don't have to run.

My mama told me, child, she said
You're beautiful you're beautiful to me
I said mama, wish I was in your head
'cause despite your words I really do not see.

[Chorus: x2]

I been runnin' from, I'm runnin' from
The fear I'll lose myself in what I've become
And I don't wanna be under the gun
Please give me the strength to find I'm not the only one
Please give me the strength to fine I don't have to run.
