I Won't Run Away - Attila the Stockbroker

I WON’T RUN AWAY

Now come the autumn days with their dark ways:
a shadow plays on my wall
as I sit all alone
Words in an empty room sound just as sweet as any tune
And if these will be my last, they’ll be my own
So what if life’s too short to catch every dream that could be caught?
I’ve had more than my share coming true

CHORUS 1
And I won’t run away from the things I believe to be right
I won’t walk out now on the things I’ve believed all my life
They’re gunning for minds in the land of the free
But they haven’t got you and they haven’t got me
Come what may
I won’t run away

But in my land I see an empty-eyed conspiracy
of ignorance, and hopelessness, and fear
I cross the Channel and I sing the songs of England
And people ask me what is happening here
I tell them one day soon we’ll rise and sing a different tune
But even if we don’t one thing I know

CHORUS 2
Is that I won’t run away from the things I believe to be right
And I won’t walk out now on the things I’ve believed all my life
I still have a dream, it’s there in my head
And I’ll never go back on a word that I said
Come what may
I won’t run away

They sit there at home with their heads in the sand
They’ll change how they vote for ten quid in their hand
they may have a video, they may have a car
But they’re still in a lottery, they ain’t got that far
I dream of the day when they see through the con
But even if they don’t I’ll carry on

And....(repeat Chorus 2)
