Paul Colman – Running Away From You lyrics

There's no reason to hide this way
We're moving further apart each day
You're the one that I trust
Crossing the border looking for questions
To all the answers in my mind
Through Indiana and into Chicago
Feeling the winds of compromise
South in Kentucky traffic is go slow
Sentence my patience to doing time
We roll into Nashville
Sad country songs just seem to rhyme
There's no reason to hide this way
Moving further apart each day
And you're the one that I trust
But I'm running away from you
I'm running away from you
And it's got to stop
And now is the time
I pack in a suitcase all my opinions
I wish I could lose them on the flight
We cross Carolina the Atlantic beside her
And swallow the Georgia countryside
Alone in a truck stop thinking about you
My coffee as cold as our goodbye
And sweet Alabama
I wish I could find a home tonight
Now is the time to listen the hour of freedom
The power to let it all go
To rebuild the bridges surrender defences
And fall like the sun on the snow
Throwing down the stones of my self-righteousness
I am found and forgiven by your sweet caress
I was running away from you
