That girl has diamonds in her eyes
I wanna run my fingers through her honey hair
An ocean away, I stand in awe of her
When she smiles, I see my dreams
And in my dreams, she says,

“Run away, run away with me
I know I make it sound so easy
Just pack your bag and we will leave
No home, we’ll be wild and free
Come with me”

Wind blows through her honey hair
As we speed toward our forever
In her smile I see all our possibilities
What we can do, who we can be
But because this is a dream, she says

As I sit, as I daydream
There’s a tap on my shoulder
Diamond eyes, honey hair
Then I hear her say

Wow amazing you know how many times iv thought of running away with my dream girl believe me sometimes iv thought it would actually end better than not doing so until I remembered there's now DFS and cops and I cannot run faster than a Cop car or Dog neither can she so right now we're just keep dreaming of the day we can be together because when that day comes that is the day our lives will change
