Run Run

Given the chance I will run Bags left behind I will run Feet beating loudly on the ground To alert of my escape I will run I won’t look back if I hear my name called I will steel my heart to begs and pleads I will herd no promises coming to late Won’t be talked out of my freedom I will run No shirt on I will run No trouser or pant I will run Naked, I will ran I will take my chance with the element I have no doubt I will find a lover in her Her sunny lips will kiss my skin Her windy hands will have me shivering Her rainy tongue will soak me, lick me clean off all traces of my past Soon after, she will cover me with a white blanket Whisper to me of warmth Of a place far, far away Where no one can reach
