Done Running

My legs are weary, feet are sore

From the past, I run no more

And so I stop, I turn to face it

And as a friend embrace it

.

Because the past is a part of me

It lives deep in the heart of me

It’s everything I ever was

And all I’ll ever be

.

It don’t matter how fast you run

It keeps on coming, it’s never done

You can’t escape what’s been before

So from the past I run no more

.

Because the past is a part of me

It lives deep in the heart of me

It’s everything I ever was

And all I’ll ever be

.

You can always change your heading

But you can’t change where you’ve been

Your steps can always be retraced

But they can never be erased

.

Once a story has been told

Once the words have taken hold

It’ll stay with you as you grow old

Shape you in it’s mould

.

You may forget what you have heard

Not remember a single word

Your memories may be blurred

But the lessons have been learned

.

It don’t matter how fast you run

It keeps on coming, it’s never done

I can’t escape what’s come before

So from the past I run no more

.

Because the past is a part of me

It lives deep in the heart of me

It’s everything I ever was

And all I’ll ever be

  1. This could be a great song!! Loved it..
    But I’m surprised that you wrote “It’s everything I ever was, And all I’ll ever be”.
    Really? Does it mean that a person cannot change? Isn’t there more to you than just your past? We evolve and change with time, don’t we? I’m sorry if I misunderstood.
