Run


Run
For if you stop
You may never run again

Run
For if you jog
You will lose everything

Run
For if you stop
People will know

Run
For if you walk
No one will ever trust you again

Run
For if you stop
The world will know your secret

Run
For if you fail
I will lose you & everything we have

Run
For if you stop
The world will know you exist.

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
