And I Ran

Everything that could have been
I’ve been running from
And everything in front of me
I closed my eyes so I couldn’t see

And I ran, oh I ran
From my own history
Into the darkness
Headlong into hopeful mystery

For no purpose but to escape
I embraced the wild
My own, free-willed escapade
Left behind, I left it all behind

And I ran, oh I ran
Into the blackest night
Until the stars broke in front of me
Misty-eyed, I kissed eternity

And I was never the same
No, I was never the same
My heart, my soul
My mind had changed

And I ran, oh I ran
Up and into the sky
That blackest night
Broken by eternal light
