Here’s another one I wrote with Anje Dowler and a great singer/songwriter I went to Berklee with, Mike Willis.
Staying put. Seeing love through. Walking it out. Hard, but so worth it. Enjoy!!

Don’t Want to Run
I’ve always played the game
not giving all of me
so quick place the blame
A broken man
With an answer for everything
Can’t keep living live in overdrive
Always trying to catch my breath
My soul is tired now
I think I’m losing ground
I can’t help myself
I don’t want to run anymore
I’d rather stay with you and take it slow
With this love I can’t ignore
I’m finally coming undone
I don’t wanna run
A collection of memories
A fading dream
Are all I’ve had to hold
A beaten up photograph
From a moment that
I cannot seem to let go
Our love has been a battleground
Leaving us the casualties
I’ll raise my hand and call a truce
But I just can’t retreat
Am I too late?
Has the moment gone?
Is there a part of me alive in you?
Something I can hold on to?

What a powerful song! This is probably my favorite one of yours I’ve heard.
Nice. steven curtis chapman meets Elton John and a little billy joel thrown in. Excellent!
