I think of all the situations in my life
All the times when I turned tail and ran
Avoid predicaments I didn't want to face
Polite excuses, "I'm doin' all I can"

I kept movin' on, easiest alternative
But this one's different, I tried to believe

Don't think I can stand all the awkward silences
Loaded pauses, dreading what you'll say
I guess we always knew that truth would be the casualty
Quick-fix solutions? So late in the day

Kept movin' on. simplest alternative
Put our faith in words, we tried to believe

Like a dream, I see a day
Peaceful, free, at last I stop running

Finally I stop
