Run and Hide

words and music by John Eddie

It's such a small world
Ain't life funny
You kiss my cheek and say you'll call me sometime
That boy you're hangin' on
He's dressed in money
That crowd you're runnin' with don't take to my kind
You always make some sad excuse
Someone's getting mad shouldn't we be faithful
Are you afraid you won't refuse
Everytime you move
All you do is run and hide

Chorus:
Run and hide to someplace dark and cold
Run ad hide to where your heart grows old
Baby I wish I could make you stay
But you run and hide away


Is this my penance should I pray for
The soul you stole away
And scratched your name in
Is this my sentence
Some crime I pay for
Well you're ashamed to say you're guilty of the same sin
You leave a trace of some old friend
Then you walk away to the shelter of your new crowd
You think you're safe when you're with them
But there's somethin' in your eyes
That says you shouldn't run and hide


Chorus...

Run and hide like you ain't comin' back
Run and hide well I can't live with that
Baby I wish I could make you stay
But you run and hide away


Now I dare you to give me
The pretty kiss that dragged us both down
Swear you don't miss me
Swear to God your heart's a ghost town
Where nothin' lives inside
Just the soul of a kiss goodbye


I learned the lessons
My daddy taught me
How pride can fill a heart
And choke it till it turns black
I said a lover's prayer
The day you walked free
That heaven teaches you
In time for you to turn back baby


Chorus:
Run and hide to someplace dark and cold
Run ad hide to where your heart grows old
Baby I wish I could make you stay
But you run and hide away

Run and hide like you ain't comin' back
Run and hide well I can't live with that
Baby I wish I could make you stay
But you run and hide away

Now whatcha gonna do when you wake up scared
When the boy you trusted just ain't there
Someday, honey, when your searchin's through
Look back baby it's me and you
Whatcha gonna do when you wake up sad
Life don't cut it, love's a drag
Someday, honey, when your searchin's through
Look back baby it's me and you
