Steve Bryant invited me to sing this tender story of struggle and hope from the perspective of a young runaway. He remixed it here. Thanks Steve.

The track was recorded to For the Morning by Admiral Bob at 125 bpm. Thanks Admiral!

Catch me if you can I’m gone again
I’m a runaway not a single friend
I’ve been doing this on and off forever
And I know this aint the way
Sooner or later I”ll have to pay
But mom and I just can’t live together
She’s always drunk and popping pills
And anything else that makes her chill
I dont know how much more I can take
I could use a friend I need a break
Someone please help me for heaven sake

This is no life for a girl
Its just me against the world
Thanks to mom I’m so prepared
Sometimes its Hard at night
The pimps have me in their sights
I’m 14 but I’m never scared
I was raped when I was twelve
My life’s a living hell
A nightmare not a fairytale
I’ll end up dead or in jail
But I keep praying for my prince
I know this doesnt make much sense
I’ll never have the fairytale
I could use a friend I need a break
Someone please help me for heaven sake
