Act I, Scene i, in which the protagonist runs away.


In a year or so
We could be so far away from all we know
‘Cause tomorrow
We will run away
From all the demons that lead us astray
Day after day

And I see you and all that you do
And I hope that you see me too

And we hide away from the dark of day

It’ll be so nice
To lock the door and turn out the light
Hidden from sight
And we won’t look back
We’ll take the animals and a backpack
And the instrument stack

And our love will grow out of control
Our love will grow, grow, grow out of control

And we’ll hide away from the dark of day

Anywhere will do
All I need is a plot of land and you
Hidden from view
We’ll dream up a plan
We’ll build the old way with our own two hands
With silt, straw, and sand

And we’ll run run run
‘Cause I’m done
With the sun, sun, sun
And everyone

I belong to the shadows
So you best leave me there

I belong to the shadows so you best leave me there/And we hide away from the dark of day
