Runnin' away runnin' away
Hey hey hey runnin' away

I had the perfect girl we'd spend together hours everyday
You'd say that I had it made and I was all for the commitment
But then she started wantin' more from me
And my mind began to change suddenly I didn't feel the same
I didn't know what I was doing

I was dodging commitment start but don't finish
My aim was always the same girl I know I been trippin'
I'm confessin' I'm confessin' so baby just hear me out
I'm confessin' I'm confessin' so baby just see me off
I wanna show my heart but I don't know where to start

So I keep runnin'
With real love in my face
Why am I breakin' away
I keep runnin'
So scared of the heartbreak
So scared of makin' mistakes
I keep runnin'
When all I really need is you
All I really need is you
But I keep on runnin' away
Hey hey hey

I caught a second wind of happiness when I met this girl
And then we became the best of friends we went
From half full to half empty I took a detour tryin' to find myself
But I'm on this road again want out of this box I'm in
I made it harder to be with me

I was dodging commitment start but don't finish
My aim was always the same girl I know I been trippin'
I'm confessin' I'm confessin' so baby just hear me out
I'm confessin' I'm confessin' so baby just see me off
I wanna show my heart but I don't know where to start

So I keep runnin'
With real love in my face
Why am I breakin' away
I keep runnin'
So scared of the heartbreak
So scared of makin' mistakes
I keep runnin'
When all I really need is you
All I really need is you
But I keep on runnin' away
Hey hey hey

I'm 'bout to break down baby I'm done
No I can't keep up runnin' this marathon
No need to rest when I already won
And if I got you by my side girl I already won

It's like lookin' for a treasure when it's already mine
It don't make sense don't make sense
No matter how hard I try to define
I'm comin' face to face with myself
I know I don't need don't need no one else
So can somebody tell me where I'm goin'
So can somebody tell me where I'm goin'

I keep runnin'
With real love in my face
Why am I breakin' away
I keep runnin'
So scared of the heartbreak
So scared of makin' mistakes
I keep runnin'
When all I really need is you
All I really need is you
But I keep on runnin' away
I keep runnin'
With real love in my face
Why am I breakin' away
I keep runnin'
So scared of the heartbreak
So scared of makin' mistakes
I keep runnin'
When all I really need is you
All I really need is you
But I keep on runnin' away
Hey hey hey

Runnin' away runnin' away hey hey hey
Runnin' away runnin' away hey hey hey
