Romantic Runaway Song - Poem by Floyd Crenshaw

she lives in a simple home
wanting everywhere to go
waking up countless times before
to some emptiness

following her mother's steps
barely knowing when to take a stand
led by fear of the new frontier
she'll stay back at home

where am I going?
should I leave a note?
what if I'm lonely?
will I find a home?

caught off guard by a strong fresh face
he offered to take her away
she gladly accepted and threw away
her last name

they took a train to cali
and found a friend she'd known before he
he with her and her with him
she felt free for once

where are we going?
I never left a note.
I doubt i'll be lonely.
we're out to find a home.

searched and found that perfect city
bright and green with love to give.
she lives off a street named lake
and never bothered to write home

she lives with him
sublime on their happy hunting ground
It's all she'd ever need.
