When we ran away

Oh, dear reader! Do you remember when we ran away?
When we ran to our loves and they embraced us
And so we packed up our suitcases
With our favorite clothes
And left
To the most beautiful place we thought could exist
And our old thumpity bumpity truck
Drove down little dirt roads
Through pastures and flower fields
And we swore we would never leave

We slept in barns full of fresh cut hay
And spare rooms stacked with handmade quilts
We forgot about life and let the sea breeze carry us
To places that couldn’t possibly exist
In the world we had known before

I remember our great times
When the world feels too much
I think back to your face
And suddenly the world feels a bit more bearable
