runnin from a past

talkin to myself i get lonely
don’t know what i’d say anyway
seems i’ve been here before

runnin from yesterday i find me
never knowing what i was running from
just seems to be what i do

i don’t know what i’d tell me even if i could
shadows in my mind surprise even myself
i can’t explain what i don’t understand
but i would listen to me try, maybe i should

stop running from a past that is never going to change
stop looking at tomorrow as some missed opportunity
an empty page is never going to write your story
its only marking how you spent your time today
there will be sad times, the words find their way
there will be amazing nights bright in all their glory
close your mind and find the road that only you can see
just stop running from a past that is never going to change

maybe i should tell myself all this anyway
chasing the shadows back into the night
i can’t understand what ive never explained
but i would listen to me try, maybe i should

talkin to myself i’ll see it through
not knowing what to say is what i needed to hear
seems i’ve heard it all before

runnin from a past gets me nowhere
turn and face what i’ve been running from
maybe that’s what i should do

stop running from a past that’s never going to change
