I'll Keep it that Way

I don't run to hide from the pain
No, I'm not holding yesterday
I don't run to find escape
Because this life is mine, I'll live it my way


I didn't say "I love you" in vain
Standing there in the pouring rain
I only wanted you to see
You were the very best part of me


I don't run to get away
I'm not hiding from the pain
I'm not running away
Because this life is mine, I'll keep it that way


Yesterday has left me all alone
The memories have taken hold
And I'm not sure what it means
But, I know, this is the life I lead


I don't run to get away
I'm not hiding from the pain
I'm not running away
Because this life is mine, I'll keep it that way


As the story turns the page
I'll hold onto every day
As I remember what you said
I'll hold it all inside my head
I won't let this get the best of me
Because some things aren't meant to be


I won't let you fade away
I'll let the memories replay
I'm not leaving you this way
Because this love is mine, I'll keep it that way


I don't run to get away
I'm not hiding from the pain
I'm not running, not running away
Because this life is mine, I'll keep it that way

A Bold Statement

I love the clarity, the knowing, the self-knowledge of position. Well executed, except for I've didn't a typo. Every line kin to every line in the song lyric. "I'm not running, not running away" is perfection and will go to music masterfully. Love this posture, strong, manly as in how a man should know his mind ~allets

And thank you for such an exceptional comment
It might just inflate my ego a bit ;)
I'm glad you enjoyed my moment of epiphany
