lyrics

VERSE 1
All the summers that she spent
counting stars have come and went
buried under bills she couldn't pay

The calla lillies line the fence
to cover years of negligence
the landlord smiles and turns the other way

INSTRUMENTAL INTERLUDE

VERSE 2
the lights are low, the bare bulbs show
listening to the radio while she
beds her kids back down to sleep

the posters hanging in the hall
cover holes punched through the wall
she cries aloud, this is not how it's supposed to be

PRE CHORUS
Believe me I understand
hold my breath and hold your hand
close my eyes and pray for rain to
wash away all of your pain

CHORUS
She Runs Away
She Runs Away

VERSE 3
Wishing for a second chance
playing cards on a cash advance
a lousy draw whatever your luck may bring

Clutching dreams of Hollywood
doing lines trying to feel good
even though inside she knows it's all too late

PRE-CHORUS

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Slippin' away
a little bit every day
they walls are closing in
the bills are due again

Slippin' away
a little bit every day
was there more that I could do
to be helping you?

Slippin' away
a little bit everyday
the walls are closing in
the bills are due again

CHORUS 2
She Runs Away
She Runs Away
She Runs Away
(x2)

VERSE REPRISE
All the summers that she spent
countin' stars have come and went
buried under
buried under bills
she couldn't pay
