The shimmering guitar pop of "Run Away Today" is the first song that Lisa wrote. LK: "They're the first chords I learned on the Ovation acoustic guitar that my Dad gave me in high school. It's like a breezy convertible top down sunshine day, but full of young girl angst about running away from home."



It's not that I want to go
Go away
It's just that these four walls are gone
Gone today

And I'll really miss you
Really want to stay
But I really need to
Just run away

There's nothing that I want to do
Do today
There's no more life in this town

And don't remember
Anything I say
Because in this life
Nothing's here to stay

Run a run away...

Run a run away...
