run boy

 

These feet need to feel

foreign soil beneath their heels

and dance with leaves upon my laces

waking the weary in worn out places

 

I've split my mind in two to try

help reach reasons justified

my only chance to ask or lie

which lays best in a blind mans eye

 

Run boy, Come man

roam as far and wide you can

Run boy, Come man

It's not you mother, and it's not you dad

Run boy, Come man

home is going no where

 

I'll write home of distant news

sing new songs of new highway blues

I've seen you write & seen you run

not to fear - the cowards won

 

Run boy, Come man

roam as far and wide you can

Run boy, Come man

It's not you mother, and It's not you dad

Run boy, Come man

home is going no where
