about

TRACK 9 RUNNING TO STAY:

Is a reflective lyric focusing on how difficult a balance life can be. This is the oldest lyric used on the album. The original demo for this song was recorded in 1994 and was the last time I worked with Russell Aylett my former songwriting partner who produced the original demo. Russ was tragically murdered in 2006. The song will always remind me of him and Dave Phillips who I co wrote the song with.

lyrics

I’ve been honest
Maybe too honest
I’ve lied just to be nice
I’ve been laughing
At all my weakness
I’ve cried once maybe twice
But I’m changing my friends
My friends and my mind

I’ve been hurt
And never knew why
I’m close but so far away
I’ve been lucky
Or so someone told me
I’m waiting for you just to say
That I’m changing my friends
My friends and my mind

I feel like I’ve been
On a white knuckle ride
And lost all my life on the way
But where was the right road
I never saw it
I feel like I’m running away
Just to stay
Running to stay

I’ve been looking
For more than excuses
I’ve dreamed
For maybe too long
I’ve been taking
When I should be giving
But I
I want respect from this song
So I’m changing my friends
My friends and my mind
