Love Song

I'm not gonna write you a love song
Cause you ask for it
Cause you need one
You see, I'm not gonna write you a long song
Cause you tell me it's make or breakin' this
If you're on your way
I'm not gonna write you to stay
If all you have is leavin'
I'm gonna need a better reason
To write you a love song

We find our feet again,
slip them back into those gorgeous shoes, and wonder why we spent the last year in flats that didn't flatter us.

We walk away, from the bullshit and the curveballs that life has hurled our way. Tear up letters that have become empty words in fading ink.
We cry, and toss our bottles of tears onto the road, to hear it shatter and spill open.
Blow the world kisses,
write down wishes and let them go with a helium-filled balloon.

We're walking fast, faster now.
Then we're running.
Not caring if we fall, or if our heel gets caught.
We're running, like our life depended on it, and it actually just might.

We're running,
running far far away from you,
and closer to the rest of our lives.
