Why Does She Run?

Why does she run, run away?
Is it to save herself from hurt and pain?
Why is she not willing to put herself out there,
or able to give someone a chance.
why, why does she run, run away?

She can blame no one but herself,
for the reasons she's alone.
No one but herself for the reasons shes so cold.
Why can't she let some one in,
why can't she stand her ground,
why is she always running, running away?

When love comes in, she just shuts it out.
Forever holding back and never letting go,
is this how it will stay, she has to know.
When will she ever give love the chance to grow?

She wants so deeply to open her heart,
Praying for just a little light, to get through the dark.
She holds herself together, to keep from falling down,
for through this struggle, her true self will be found.

Maybe she'll find answers to the questions,
that stay now just a riddle in her mind,
Why, Why does she run, run away?
