Allison's Invention – Ran lyrics

Hey little girl, where do you think your going.
You've been trying to prove yourself, a long, long time.
Who are you now?
With all those demons lurking
,
Getting this far has been a long, long climb...

She ran to the corner, to prove that she wasn't afraid.
She crossed the street without looking,
Over the bridge that led to downtown.
She took a breath of the city air,
And she had herself a look around.

And sometimes she started one way,
And sometimes she started for another,
But the thing she'd never understand,
Was why she was always running from Mother?

Hey little girl,
I know those ghosts that ride you.
They're bound to catch you, baby in the end
.
In all your dreams you suddenly grow, wings.
And at the last moment you start to ascend
.

She ran to the corner, to prove that she wasn't afraid.
She crossed the street without looking,
Over the bridge that led to downtown.
She took a breath of the city air,
And she had herself a look around.

And sometimes she started one way,
And sometimes she started for another,
But the thing she'd never understand,
Was why she was always running from Mother?

[Instrumental]

Questions remain, that you may never answer.
Untold secrets taken to her grave
.
Who do you fear most?
Is it her or you
?
Twenty year later, you're still trying to be brave...
Brave...
Brave
...

    This is what Allison wrote on the comment section on YouTube under her song. She's explaining the meaning of her song. "Hi Andy, I wrote this song about a recurring dream I used to have. I eventually realized that I wasn't really running from my mother but from my fear that my life would be like hers. My mom and I were very close, but she had a very difficult and painful and sometimes I was afraid that I would follow too closely in her footsteps."
