The Chase (Thank you, Carol Rhodes)


Depression chases after
As I run ahead
Away from the blues

As fast as my running shoes
Will take me
Around the corner
Down the road I fly

With the wind behind
And no hills to climb
Depression chases after
Depression chases after
And catches me

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;

Are things of the long ago;
