Kathleen Edwards - Run lyrics

Oh, my child thirty years today
You came into my life and everything changed
If there's one thing I tried to teach you
Girl, don't you waste your time
Come this September you'll be somebody's wife

I won't paint a picture
Of what you want to see
Love is the harder times
Take it from me

I would run down the lane and into the night
Run so fast, I swear my feet would fly
Run from my babies asleep in their beds
Run from my lover and my best friend
And back again

And all of this courage I've tried so hard to hold on to
Ever since that day you and your brother left for school
They say just over that hill the fog rolled in
And come quick doctor, we think somebody's been killed

And I have been a healer
Of other people's pain
Yeah, I know sometimes you don't like
The ways I've changed

But the smell of the world came into my lungs
The sound of the gravel when my legs went numb
And my heart nearly burst right out of my chest
It felt so good to know I wasn't dead

I would run down the lane and into the night
Run so fast, I swear my feet would fly
Run from my babies asleep in their beds
Run from my lover and my best friend
And back again
Back again
