running away lyrics – kina grannis

i hide my face
i’m trying harder than you’d ever know
and i can’t help what’s wrong
you’ve found your light
and no i, i can’t fall down
wherever we were lost
you’ve returned from, but i have not been found

chorus:
and you’re running away from what’s here
but what you’ve found is not another place or year
and you’re running away from what’s real
ignoring your past and what you feel

when darkness falls, i feel we’re led by separate powers
and i know you see much more than stars above
and yet your smile still fades
i noticed as you’re trailing blindly behind an absent hand you made

chorus

bridge:
and not 10 minutes before crushing metal blinding lights
and fire he had raised his eyes to the icon on the dashboard and he said,
“is it enough for me to live in theory?”
sipping down his sorrow, he set the bottle down
having never thought this life was for himself

’cause he was running away from what’s here
and what he found was not another place or year
he was running away from what we feel
never giving himself the chance to live for real
