RUNNING

I NEED TO RUN, I WANT TO RUN, IN THE SUN, HAVING SOME FUN
I MISS RUNNING, THE WIND ON MY FACE AND IN MY HAIR, MY LEGS CARRY ME THERE
A PHYSICAL STRENGTH THAT GAVE ME RISE, TO VIGOR AND ENERGY, WELL SPENT

WHEN I AM TRAPPED, AND I CANNOT RUN, I AM SAD AND MAD
I WANT THAT PART OF MY SPIRIT BACK, THE PART THAT WAS WILD AND FREE
THE PART THAT LOVED, FEELING THE WIND ON MY FACE AND IN MY HAIR
THE PART THAT WAS HAPPY, FAST, STEALTH, AND FREE TO BE
NOW MY LIFE IS BROKEN AND SICK, TO MUCH TO BARE
MY WILDNESS IS A MEMORY, MY LOVE IMPOSSIBLE
FOR I AM CAGED, AND ENRAGED

I LONG TO RUN, CHASING THE BUTTERFLIES, AWAY FROM THE SADNESS, AWAY FROM THE MADNESS
I LONG TO RUN WITH OTHERS WHO ARE FREE TOO, MY REAL BROTHERS AND SISTERS, NOT THE ONES WHO KEEP ME IN A CAGE, UNABLE TO ENGAGE
THEY KEEP ME BOUND, LIKE A HOUND, STUCK ON THE GROUND, UNABLE TO FLY, UNABLE TO REACH FOR THE SKY
I WANT TO FLY FAR AWAY FROM HERE, TO BREAK THE TIES THAT KEEP ME DOWN BEFORE I DROWN
I WANT TO RUN, RUN, RUN, I WANT TO LIVE, I WANT TO LIVE, LOVE, AND TO BE FREE AS OTHERS ARE BEFORE MY LIFE IS OVER AND THERE IS NO MORE…IF I CANNOT RUN THAN I CAN NOT BE HAPPY, FOR I AM NOT FREE…TO LOVE AS OTHERS LOVE AND TO LIVE AS OTHERS LIVE
I AM NOT HAPPY OR ALIVE, I AM A CAPTIVE
