She wanted to see the world
See the ocean crashing on foreign sands,
The architecture of religion,
Accents in the cafes.
She promised to see the world
Dine with the Queen
Safari, Sahara, Sayonara
A journey from North America to anywhere else…
But her passport was expired.
Running away to L.A. under the shadow of the clouds
A day that I will never forget
I’ll be a runaway in L.A., my mind is set
I’m leaving today, a cloudy spring day.
I’m leaving today
Before I change my mind,
Before you realize I’m gone
And I see what I’ll be missing.
I’m leaving all of it behind.
Hollywood is dead, the stars are diminishing
The audience sits waiting, criticising, slowly killing them.
They need something new on the silver screen
And I’ll be the bright and shining star.
Hand me the script, I’ll captivate the crowd
Standing alone in the spotlight
Solitude- the way of life
For the runaway.
Again, I fall for that wicked smile
Like a glimpse of sun
On a frigid winter morning.
Perchance your hands will warm my heart with
Elation as they grasp mine in the
Church of lust and no return to the
Island of insecurity from whence we came. I’ll
Abandon my life in a flash for a chance to have a future with you.
I’ve never seen you before,
I don’t know you-
If you told me
You see me
Like the silver lining
On your ever present
You hear me
Like the wind
Whispering the secrets
Of life into your ear
You feel me
Like your heartbeat
As your blood rushes
Through your veins
You know me
Like the abandoned home
You lived in through your adolescence
With the fondest memories
e v e r y t h i n g
Leave it all (behind)
At the chance
Of running away with you
For the rest
