I Ran Away

One, two, three: Will

I ran away from you 
That's all I ever do 
And though I started here 
I ran away from you
I'm gonna come on in 
And see it through

I ran away from you 
That's all I ever do
And when I heard you 
Come back to me 
And though I should stay 
I don't have the stomach to

Everyone I know 
Says I'm a fool to mess with you 
Everyone I know 
Says it's a stupid thing to do
I have your love on call 
And my belly is so full 
There might be nothing left to do 
So I ran away from you

I'm gonna come on in 
My eyes were closed
I can feel it near 
The sides so close 
I'm gonna come on out 
And burn the sky

A star arose in my own cage 
I stuck in line
And in a cage
Just a single star 
I sing for

Everyone I know 
Says I'm a fool to mess with you 
Everyone I know 
Says it's a stupid thing to do

I have your love on call 
And yet my belly is so full 
And I did not know what to do 
And so I ran away from you
