"Running Away from Me" as written by and Jon Foreman....
I swallowed the end of the world with my problems
Thought maybe a girl could solve 'em
Don't let anyone in
I'm stuck with these sins

I'm hoping maybe time can absolve 'em
I said I needed room to breathe
I said I needed to run free
Well that's all through

Thought I was runnin' from you
Turns out I was runnin' from me
La, La, La La, La, La
Runnin' away from me

La, La, La La, La, La
Runnin' from me
There's a girl who lives on my street
She said the flowers take care of the bees

She says she'll bring me a shore
Cause Daddy's at war
She's gonna take care of me
If history is violence and sex

I'd rather not pay my respects
If I've caused offense
I'm just trying to talk sense
Forgive me if I'm too direct

Or politically incorrect
La, La, La La, La, La
Runnin' away from me
La, La, La La, La, La

Runnin' away from me
Turns out I was runnin' from me
I said I needed room to breathe
I said I needed room to breathe

I said I needed room to breathe
I said I needed room to breathe
I said I needed room to breathe
I said I needed room to breathe

I said I needed room to breathe
I said I needed room to breathe
I said I needed room to breathe
I said I needed to run free

All that's through
Thought I was runnin' from you
Turns out I was runnin' from me
Turns out I was runnin' from me

La, La, La La, La, La
Runnin' away from me
La, La, La La, La, La
Runnin' away from me

Runnin' away from me
Runnin' away from me
Runnin' away from me
Runnin' away from me
