  RUNNING AWAY FROM ME

I swallowed the world with my problems
Though maybe a girl can solve 'em
Don't let anyone in, I'm stuck with these sins
I'm hoping maybe time can absolve 'em

I said I needed room to breathe
I said I needed to run free
Well, that's all through
Thought I was runnin' from you
Turns out I was runnin' from me

La, la, la la, la, la
Runnin' away from me
La, la, la la, la, la
Runnin' away from me

There's a girl who lives down my street
She said the flowers take care of the bees
She says she'll bring me ashore
Because daddy's at war
She's going to take care of me

Now if history is violence and sex
I'd rather not pay my respects
If I've caused offence, I'm just trying to talk sense
Forgive me if I'm too direct or politically incorrect

La, la, la la, la, la
Runnin' away from me
La la, la la, la, la
Runnin' away from me

Turns out I was runnin' from me

I said I needed room to breathe
I said I needed room to breathe
I said I needed room to breathe
I said I needed room to breathe

I said I needed room to breathe
I said I needed room to breathe
I said I needed room to breathe
I said I needed room to breathe

I said I needed room to breathe
I said I needed to run free
Well, that's all through
Thought I was runnin' from you
Turns out I was runnin' from me
Turns out I was runnin' from me

La, la, la la, la, la
Runnin' away from me
La, la, la la, la, la
Runnin' away from me
Runnin' away from me
Runnin' away from me
Runnin' away from me
Runnin' away from me.
