I didn’t mean to run from you
When you loved me, and held me in the dark
You knew the right words to say
You loved me in the night
But I turned and I ran away
Left your out-stretched arms for what I thought was better days
And you're always there, telling me its okay, there when I don’t have the words to pray
You were crying when I left you, but you were smiling ‘take me back’
You give me all you can, but I got scared and then I ran
And no matter how hard I try, I cannot escape the pain in your eyes
And I didn’t mean to run from you
I was helpless in the night, til you were by my side
When I said I love you, I turned and ran away, but you know ill come back to you some day
Broken and abused
And ill be crying on my knees, how could I have used you
I didn’t mean to run from you
Id be better off dead, than hear the things I hurt you with
The ugly words I said…….
