The First Time I Ran Away

Music Video

Lyrics

The first time I ran away
I saw faces in the trees
I heard voices in the storm
They sang: Uh, uh (by the waterfall)
Uh, uh

The second time I ran away
I saw warriors on the train
Catching tigers by the tail
They sang:
Uh, uh

‘Cause of the way they look at you as if you were a stranger
The way they talk to you as if you were a child

The last time I run away- well, I hope it is with you
Will you let me show you where to run
Uh, uh, uh, uh
