You were surely wrong, crazy to admit it
Now your tears come falling, just as pure as rain
Well babe you don't even have to ask me to forget it
I'm not even trying, it won't be the same

And I'll run from you, oh, in the morning time
I know you'll need me when the sun comes softly
You'll want me by your side

Baby Leonardo must have held his hammer heavy
As he cast a shadow, straight into stone
Maybe wisdom comes to those who wait though being weary
I know for myself though, I'll just walk on

And I'll run from you, oh, in the summertime
I know you'll need me when the warm breeze is blowing
You'll want me by your side

I have often thought you were all that I saw clearly
When babe like me, you were trying too hard to be free
Maybe now it's time for us to look where we have come
Though you think you're hiding form me
I'm not the one you're hiding from

And I'll run from you, oh, in the winter time
I know you'll need me when the snowflakes are flying
You'll want me by your side

I would wait for you, but my feet just keep on walking
And like a laughing stream my thoughts come quick, cool and clear
Something echoes now and then, but I don't hear
And on a winding road I'm well on my way with nothing to fear

And I'll run from you, oh, in the evening time
I know you'll need me when the moon is a burning
You'll want me by your side
