Lyrics

PLEASE DON'T RUN AWAY
Words and Music by Caroline Waters
Rap written by Katisse Buckingham

When I see you I can see me
When I hear you I can hear me
And I realize I can feel my soul

When I look at you and your eyes meet mine
I am lost in space of a different time
And the beauty that I see in you is also mine

So, please don't run away from me
How can I make you see all that you mean to me
Please don't run away

Please don't run away from me
How can I make you see all that you mean to me
Please don't run away

When I see you I can see me
When I feel you I can feel me
Can't you see that I am just like you

So, please don't run away from me
How can I make you see all that you mean to me
Please don't run away

Please don't run away from me
How can I make you see all that you mean to me
Please don't run away

I know how scared you are
I know how scared you are

"From day one, from the get go
I'll be with you, my friend
I'll give you shade in the hot sun
And I won't let go
There's no need to be afraid
Through communication breakdown
It's always the same
But if you know my name we can work it out
We can pick up the pieces
Peace can heal the pain
Got someone to blame for your lot in life
We've got a lot in life
Let's be thankful for some of it
What may become of it when we go
Like a candle lit
Gets passed to the next generation
I hope they can handle it
And great it with elation"

Don't run away from me
Don't run away from me

Please don't run away from me
How can I make you see all that you mean to me
Please don't run away
