tonight

Running away in Strawberry fields 
That have ripened in the sun
He’s hot on my heels
I want to belong to someone
But I run run run

He could be
Cool and cleansing 
Like water washing 
Over me
Allover me

He took my hand in the gentlest way
And he’ll always stay
Is written allover his face
But I crave to push him away
Pushing away 
Is all I’ve ever known
And he’ll wonder what he did wrong

Strawberry fields hold me
And they told me
I am a good girl
Seem to be made of wood girl
You did all you could girl
But you have got to try harder.
He’s it.
Running won’t get you anywhere this time
Not tonight.

Strawberry fields of wisdom
Said I’m my own prison
That I lock myself into
And its true
I’m so scared of this
Of you
Only I love you was on my mind
I realized this tonight

Just need more time
More time 
More time
