If I could turn back time,
I don’t know that I would.
Somethings may never change,
But I know that it’s good, you and I.

Honestly I’m scared,
Cause I’ve seen it all before.
But this time, something’s wrong;
There’s a fire in my chest burning strong.

Why would I run?

Somedays I feel old,
Other days I’m relieved.
I’ve tried my hand at growing
To a man I never thought I could be.

So I’ll build my home right here,
On a rock inside your heart.
And if I stumble down,
Could you sing until your words, they fall apart into my hands.

Why would I run?

And to think I’ve barely met you,
I feel so self-assured.
Like a dog tied up in the back yard
Free’d from the leash of humankind.
From tossing, turning, and yearning
To knowing your heart near mine
Can’t shake it, deep in my gut
Just to know know you’re mine.

Why would I run?
