ran lyrics – allison’s invention

hey little girl, where do you think your going.
you’ve been trying to prove yourself, a long, long time.
who are you now?
with all those demons lurking,
getting this far has been a long, long climb…

she ran to the corner, to prove that she wasn’t afraid.
she crossed the street without looking,
over the bridge that led to downtown.
she took a breath of the city air,
and she had herself a look around.

and sometimes she started one way,
and sometimes she started for another,
but the thing she’d never understand,
was why she was always running from mother?

hey little girl,
i know those ghosts that ride you.
they’re bound to catch you, baby in the end.
in all your dreams you suddenly grow, wings.
and at the last moment you start to ascend.

she ran to the corner, to prove that she wasn’t afraid.
she crossed the street without looking,
over the bridge that led to downtown.
she took a breath of the city air,
and she had herself a look around.

and sometimes she started one way,
and sometimes she started for another,
but the thing she’d never understand,
was why she was always running from mother?

( instrumental break )

questions remain, that you may never answer.
untold secrets taken to her grave.
who do you fear most?
is it her or you?
twenty year later, you’re still trying to be brave…
brave…
brave…
