I am a runner
Running from nothing
All things behind me
And all good things ahead
I am another, kind of lover
Follow them dragonflies and lead me to the
Sunrise in the morning
Tides in the evening
Lay me down, yeah, lay me down
And, teach me one of them harder lessons
Lay me down
Yeah, lay me down

And kiss me softly, kiss me softly
And all of them places that you know me best
Whoa-oh-oh-oh
Oh-whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh-oh, yeah
Whoa-oh-oh-oh
Oh-whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh-oh, yeah

I can be loyal, return the honor
And I'll put my family first
But you must earn your keep
This love has no strings
No leash, no clipped wings
Stronger than most things
It is noble by nature
I want no promises
Just some logged hours
Lay me down, oh lay me down
And, maybe an open mind will open mine
Oh lay me down, lay me down

And, kiss me softly, kiss me softly
And all of them places that you know me best yeah
Whoa-oh-oh-oh
Oh-whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh-oh, yeah
Oh-Whoa-oh-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh-oh, yeah

Return, return, return
To all them places that you learn
Return, return, return
All them places that you learned

Whoa-oh-oh-oh
Oh-whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh-oh, yeah
Oh-Whoa-oh-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-Whoa-oh-oh-oh, yeah

Kiss me softly, kiss me softly
And all of them places that you know me best
Yeah
Kiss me softly, kiss me softly
And all of them places that you know me best
Yeah

From the Waipio Valley
Peakin' on Tetons
Follow the Klamath's
To the basin of my soul
Shinin' on Shasta
Those holy head waters
Dear old Columbia, your gorgeous sparkling eyes
Creators callin', she's got my number
Lay me down, lay me down
And, where be my outlaws?
Well, rest in reason
Lay me down, yeah, lay me down
Cause old things never die
You know as well as I
We will return, we will return
