​Runnin'

This song is by Jesse McCartney and appears on the album Departure (2008).

Runnin' away, runnin' away, hey
Runnin' away

I had the perfect girl, we'd spend together hours every day
You can say that I had it made (made) and I was all for the commitment
But then she started wantin' more from me and my mind began to change
Suddenly I didn't feel the same (same), I didn't know what I was doing

I was dodgin' commitment, start but don't finish
My aim was always the same girl, I know I've been trippin'
I'm confessin', I'm confessin', so baby just hear me out
I'm confessin', I'm confessin', so baby just hear me out
I wanna show my heart, but I don't know where to start

So I keep runnin'
With real love in my face, why, am I breakin' away
I keep runnin'
So scared of the heartbreak, so scared I'm makin' mistakes
I keep runnin'
When all I really need is you, all I really need is you
But I keep on runnin' away (runnin' away)
Hey

I caught a second wind of happiness when I met this girl
And then, we became the best of friends
We went from half full to half empty
I took a detour tryin' to find myself, but I'm on this road again
Want out of this box I'm in, I made it harder to be with me

I was dodgin' commitment, start but don't finish
My aim was always the same girl, I know I've been trippin'
I'm confessin', I'm confessin', so baby just hear me out
I'm confessin', I'm confessin', so baby just hear me out
I wanna show my heart, but I don't know where to start

So I keep runnin'
With real love in my face, why, am I breakin' away
I keep runnin'
So scared of the heartbreak, so scared I'm makin' mistakes
I keep runnin'
When all I really need is you, all I really need is you
But I keep on runnin' away (runnin' away)
Hey

I'm 'bout to break down, baby I'm done
No I can't, keep up runnin' this marathon (this marathon)
No need to rest when I already won
And if I got you by my side, girl I already won
It's like lookin' for a treasure when it's already mine
It don't make sense, don't make sense
No matter how hard I try to define
I'm comin' face to face with myself
I know I don't need, don't need no one else
So can somebody tell me where I'm goin' (goin')
So can somebody tell me where I'm goin' (goin')

So I keep runnin' (hey)
With real love in my face, why, (why) am I breakin' away
I keep runnin'
So scared of the heartbreak, so scared I'm makin' mistakes
I keep runnin' (you're all I need, you're all I need)
When all I really need is you, all I really need is you
But I keep on runnin' away (runnin' away)

I keep runnin' (ay)
With real love in my face, why, am I breakin' away (runnin' away)
I keep runnin'
So scared of the heartbreak, so scared I'm makin' mistakes
I keep runnin'
When all I really need is you (all I need), all I really need is you (all I need)
But I keep on runnin' away (runnin' away)
Hey

Runnin' away, runnin' away hey
Runnin' away, runnin' away hey
