Running From the Wind

from by Kleenex Girl Wonder



If I could see myself in calmer, smoother colors Then maybe I would think that you might think I'm real But it's too late to change now Cause you've become a fixture I'm saying it's the wrong way, and I can't stay But then it cuts I can't wait to fade out, like the ending of a picture I'm waiting for the black screen in the next scene But the curtain still stays up And you keep saying, "Boy, pick up that chin!" But I always end up back where I begin Put no faith in things you can't rescind There ain't no use in running from the wind The only universal truths are things you can't see I've come to realize my world depends solely on me The things that you know now are things that you've created You've heard them from another source, very well of course, But all the same Your memory's gone now, so can it be debated No matter what you caught or missed You just don't exist And you're never gonna get it back again All the worlds that I'm too weak to spin Look like they'll be coming round again Where I'm going, where I've always been There ain't no use in running from the wind There ain't no use in running from the wind
