lyrics

(chorus-Lorin Williams, Randi Roberts)
I’ve been running a million miles away with you
I’ve been running a million miles away for you
I’ve been running a million miles away with you
I’ve been running a million miles away for you

(verse 1- Bari)
dark skin, known to make hearts bend, keep your mind confined in apartments nah never, need a mansion for your expansion of thoughts oh so clever, trying to stroll through your conscious I can just walk forever and I can just talk forever with you, trying to learn what you know, and discern this cruel globe, that I’m lost in, where constant nonsense, bombards my conscious,
my darling, what’s all this, as I look in your dark brown eyes you smile at my questioning telling me there’s lessons in this forever present mess we’re in, world that’s filled with negligence, take a second and look inside yourself to find your wealth, but I couldn’t see it, so vivid, couldn’t peep the whole image, and so the treasure stayed hidden within my essence,
guess my mind was too consumed with the beauty that was your presence, plus I was too confused by this unruly world I was left in, trying to get in the heaven where you reside, a place where it’s you and I, you replied I have to run before I can fly and so I

(chorus-Lorin Williams, Randi Roberts)
I’ve been running a million miles away with you
I’ve been running a million miles away for you
I’ve been running a million miles away with you
I’ve been running a million miles away for you

(verse 2- Bari)
my mind’s chaotic, I watch as the universe catapults, planets doing backflips, the stars are just some cannonballs, the streets are flooded with the blood of a panther’s heart, disaster falls, faster on my damaged thoughts, my stream of consciousness is like the Amazon, I’m cognitive they got their cameras on, reality is camouflaged, plant the seed so we can’t evolve I’m stranded on this planet dawg,
where they just living for fun, Medusa’s smile illuminated by the tip of his blunt, he’s getting stoned like Jesus, now he’s getting blown to pieces, by them boys in blue but still a muthaf**ka rose like Phoenix, from the concrete to news stations to a few places that include the basis of signs that read we need some justice or else, but still I’m stuck in this hell,
last night I was robbed for a few possessions by two dudes, confused cuz we shared the same complexion, he aimed his weapon, I gave them some change and a necklace, and they ran off in the same direction as the moonlight, right then I looked in the sky searching for your eyes or a glimpse of your smile, and there you were amongst the constellations, queen of all the nations,
you put me in this strange place and I just want to know why, you replied you still running, time to learn how to fly

(Randi Roberts)
Time to learn how to fly, oh, how to fly, how to fly, learn how to fly, how to fly
