Running
Rebelution Lyrics


[Chorus]
Tell me what you're running from, she said everything and everyone
Tell me what you're running from, what you're running from
Tell me what you're running from because your past it can't be undone
Oh tell me what you're running from, what you're running from

She wakes up every morning, thoughts weighing heavy on her mind
She's hoping today will be a better day than the ones behind
She's having some trouble getting going, from the fear she's paralyzed
She puts her face into her hands and then she cries

She's so tired, she closes her eyes
Trying to live up to a standard that the world provides
She's so tired, she closes her eyes
Trying to live up to a standard that the world provides

[Chorus]

No hope for tomorrow, no hope for today
No hope for anything that comes her way
She's so used to feeling empty inside
No reasons to live, more reasons to die
At least that's what she feels inside
Will she ever find the courage to change

She's so tired, she closes her eyes
Trying to live up to a standard that the world provides
She's so tired, she closes her eyes
Trying to live up to a standard that the world provides

She's been running away so long, running away from home
Will she ever get back, I don't know, no I don't know
You can see it in her eyes and you can see it in her smile

[Chorus]

"Running"

[Chorus:]
Tell me what you're running from, she said everything and everyone
Tell me what you're running from, what you're running from
Tell me what you're running from because your past it can't be undone
Oh tell me what you're running from, what you're running from

She wakes up every morning, thoughts weighing heavy on her mind
She's hoping today will be a better day than the ones behind
She's having some trouble getting going, from the fear she's paralyzed
She puts her face into her hands and then she cries

[Pre-Chorus:]
She's so tired, she closes her eyes trying to live up to a standard that the world provides
She's so tired, she closes her eyes trying to live up to a standard that the world provides

[Chorus]

No hope for tomorrow, no hope for today
No hope for anything that comes her way
She's so used to feeling empty inside
No reasons to live, more reasons to die
At least that's what she feels inside
Will she ever find the courage to change

[Pre-Chorus]

[Bridge]
She's been running away so long, running away from home
Will she ever get back, I don't know, no I don't know
You can see it in her eyes and you can see it in her smile

[Chorus]

Lyrics

Tell me what you're running from, she said everything and everyone
Tell me what you're running from, what you're running from
Tell me what you're running from because your past it can't be undone
Oh tell me what you're running from, what you're running from

She wakes up every morning, thoughts weighing heavy on her mind
She's hoping today will be a better day than the ones behind
She's having some trouble getting going, from the fear she's paralyzed
She puts her face into her hands and then she cries

She's so tired, she closes her eyes 
Trying to live up to a standard that the world provides
She's so tired, she closes her eyes 
Trying to live up to a standard that the world provides

Tell me what you're running from, she said everything and everyone
Tell me what you're running from, what you're running from
Tell me what you're running from because your past it can't be undone
Oh tell me what you're running from, what you're running from

No hope for tomorrow, no hope for today
No hope for anything that comes her way
She's so used to feeling empty inside
No reasons to live, more reasons to die
At least that's what she feels inside
Will she ever find the courage to change

She's so tired, she closes her eyes 
Trying to live up to a standard that the world provides
She's so tired, she closes her eyes 
Trying to live up to a standard that the world provides

She's been running away so long, running away from home
Will she ever get back, I don't know, no I don't know
You can see it in her eyes and you can see it in her smile

Tell me what you're running from, she said everything and everyone
Tell me what you're running from, what you're running from
Tell me what you're running from because your past it can't be undone
Oh tell me what you're running from, what you're running from

This whole album was just incredible. Nostalgic, and still sounds so damn good.

This one's for all my heartbroken female friends out there who've had their dreams shattered and hopes lost. May you preservere through hard times and gain the strength necessary for better times to fall into place!

I used to jam to this song in 8th grade back with my buddies smoking listening to reggae. Now I'm a junior in high school and I listened to this song for the first time in awhile and it hit me. My girlfriend suffers from severe depression and these lyrics are spot on with what she deals with. This song makes me bawl my eyes out everytime I listen to it. It gives me hope for her and her future. I was the one of the only people who even knew she had depression, much less that she overdosed.   I've never related to a music artist like this before. Rebelution thank you for being real. Peace.

@el I hope you have learned "healthy coping skills " to help you . I Kno I gave up cutting.... Few years later replaced it with pills...... Then eventually fetynal.. I'm on my second attempt on being clean and sober.. I realized my suboxone strips were not a good option for me because I had the power to skip one so I could go get high. I'm now receiving injections. Once a month .❤️❤️ Iration❤️❤️ is my "sanity savior"
