Don't Run Away

verse 1:
there's a girl overflowing with feelings
and a boy overflowing with fear
she's nervous about his former dealings
and he's worried she won't let him near
what it is she needs to say
may have to wait one more day
and what it is he needs to do
is to help them both
make both of their dreams come true

chorus:
take your time . . . think about what it is you need to say
take your time . . . make up your mind tell you want to stay
take your time, take you fear to the line
baby please don't run away

verse 2:
i'm making a firmer connection with the object
of all my affections at last
it's that crook in her nose and the scabs on her elbows
and the jeans hanging way down her ass
what it is i need to say
is that i want to take you away
what it is you need to do
is to tell me that you want to take me away with you

chorus:
take your time . . . think about what it is you need to say
take your time . . . make up your mind tell you want to stay
take your time, take you fear to the line
baby please don't run away

verse 3:
she's stuck in the city of angels
and he's waiting for her by the bay
kicking a can down the sidewalk on Broadway
and wishin' a curse on LA

chorus:
take your time . . . think about how you can keep me away
take your time . . . make up your mind now or I'll find a way
take your time, I'll take my fear to the line
LA please don't take her away
baby please don't run away
baby please don't you settle for LA
