Track Name: Run
Oh the Texas sun sets and the sky is wide
Blind if I believe I’ve found a place to hide
I’m leaving my baby and I don’t know why
Hope he don’t hate me for being a child
My foot’s on the pavement and my toes dig in
Up ahead I hear the truck that'll do me in

Why don’t I run
Why don't I run
Why don't I run, oh why don't I run
Up ahead I hear the truck, it’s for that I’m done

I’ve made some mistakes and told a lie or two
Now shame’s got me wishing that I never knew you
My blood flows weak and I can feel my heart turn
'Cause I got to give him so much less than he earned
Making that man frown makes me so damn sad
It’s a double thick cut, boy, do I got it bad
A good baby needs a baby loyal and true
How could I be crying for you and cry for him too?

I’d rather be bright or not be here at all
I'd rather be bright or not be here at all
I'd rather be bright or not be here at all
Up ahead I hear the truck, that horn is my call

I’m leaving my body and the sun falls fast
At least I’d hoped I'd go out with a fiery blast
But the dark is big and the gravel shakes
Dreaming of a place where I did not know this place

Oh I wish I could run, but there’s nowhere to run
I wish I could run, but there's nowhere to run
I wish I could run, but there's nowhere to run
No, there's nowhere to run when you’re in love with someone
There's nowhere to run when you're in love with someone
There's nowhere to run when you're in love with someone
