RUNAWAY

Too young for an own identity,
too old to be mother’s pride.
The choice between (teddy)bear and boyfriend,
when you feel alone in the night.
Don’t dream that this nightmare is over,
when your parents are out of sight.
But maybe you need to find out how it feels,
when there’s no one there to turn out the light.

Why don’t you run away, now you can’t hide your feelings?
No one understands you, while you are dreaming.
Why don’t you run away?
And take your faith when you are leaving.
Why don’t you try to find a reason?

They say it’s the only solution,
so they put you in iron chains.
But you’re ready to go beyond limits,
when you try to find deliverance again.
You struggle with your emotions,
as they change with every blow of the wind.
But it’s hard to survive all these unwritten laws,
now you need a good laugh with a friend.

Why don’t you run away, now you can’t hide your feelings?
No one understands you, while you are dreaming.
Why don’t you run away?
And take your faith when you are leaving.
Why don’t you try to find a reason?

Don’t look back, at what you’ve had,
a new life is waiting for you now…
Write you name on the wall,
so that everyone can see that you’re alive.
Find a way, to escape,
your sorrow will fade away.
And time will tell, what you’ll become,
‘cause there’s so much to discover for you now.

Refr.1.

Why don’t you run away?
Now it’s time, it’s run-away season.
Expectations in line, and a dream is leading.
Why don’t you run away?
Against the wind, so you can’t hear the screaming.
Why don’t you try to find the reason…?
Reason, the reason?
