M. Ward – The First Time I Ran Away lyrics

The first time I ran away I saw
Faces in the dreams I heard
Voices in the storm they say
Uh, uh,... water falls
Uh, uh

The second time I ran away I saw
Warriors of the train catching
Tigers by the day
They say
Uh, uh

Cause when they look at you as if you were a stranger
The way they talk to you as if you were in charge
Last time I ran away will open this with you
Let me show you where to run
Uh, uh, uh, uh
