Stop Running Away
Brenda Russell Lyrics


Ooh-ooh...
Da-da-da-da-da, hey
Oh, yeah

Where did we go that moment?
Vapors and whispers linger
Something in the air that night
Something to be remembered
How do I tell a story
When they're no words to render?
Maybe it's a dream come true
But you won't quite surrender

Do we all stand guard till we drop?
It's so hard to fake a heart
Where we might fall in love too fast
And where would we be?
I'm asking you to

Stop running away
I'm not gonna bite you
We've got nothing to lose
And everything else to gain
So don't be afraid; be my friend
I will be there till the end, ooh

We were caught up in motion
Nothing could stop the fever
But by the time you came around
You were a non-believer
Ooh, you want to hide your feelings
But you can't hide forever
Oh, I hope someday you will be saved
From keeping it all together

Oh, do we all stand guard till we drop?
It's so hard to fake a heart
Oh, we might fall in love too fast
And where would we be?
I'm asking you to

Stop running away
I'm not gonna hurt you
Baby, life is just too short
To play those games
So don't be afraid; be my friend
I will be there till the end
Don't be afraid; be my friend
I will be there, oh, babe

Ooh-wee-ooh-wee-ooh, ooh-ooh

Oh, do we all stand guard till we drop?
It's so hard to fake a heart
Oh, we might fall in love too fast
And where would we be, yeah
Ooh, so I keep asking you to

Stop running away
I'm not gonna hurt you
No, life is just too short
To play those games, oh, yeah
So don't be afraid; be my friend
'Cause I will be there till the end
Don't be afraid; be my friend
I will be there, oh, baby

Don't be afraid, no, no, no
I'm gonna be here, baby
I'm a gonna, I'm a gonna be there
Ba-do-ba-do, ba-do-ba-do, ba-do-ba-do, ooh
Do-be-do-be-do-be, yeah, yeah

Don't be afraid; be my friend
'Cause I will be there till the end, oh, baby
Your friend, your friend
Your friend, your...
