I need a break from it all
Some space from it all for a minute
I’m trying to make sense of it all
This place is so unforgiving
Wanting and waiting
And somehow it’s another winter
Big plans and big dreams
Are rolling now
CHORUS:
‘Cause I’m running away, running away
I gotta do it,
make my escape from this world I’ve been living in
Nothing’s holding me down
I’m leaving this town I gotta do it,
deep down I know
That as long as I stay true,
It doesn’t matter where I’m running to
Standing alone in the crowd
Can’t find my way out but I’m trying
Everything’s within my reach
But everything seems like it’s nothing
When you’re looking for something
That’s better than what is around you
All these illusions are over now.
CHORUS:
‘Cause I’m running away,
running away I gotta do it,
make my escape from this world I’ve been living in
Nothing’s holding me down
I’m leaving this town I gotta do it,
deep down I know
That as long as I stay true,
It doesn’t matter where I’m running to
And all I wanted is someone
Who could see that I ain’t just like anybody
All I needed is someone who could
Tell me it’s all right
I’ve waited all this time to be a part of something
I want it so bad and there’s no reason to it.
Looking back
Cause now I know I finally feel alive
CHORUS:
‘Cause I’m running away,
running away I gotta do it,
make my escape from this world I’ve been living in
Nothing’s holding me down I’m leaving this town I gotta do it,
deep down I know
That as long as I stay true,
It doesn’t matter where I’m running to
