Description
This is a song about relighting the fire in a long-lasting relationship. It came about when I was learning to 'Travis-pick' off You Tube, the melody just fell onto the chords I was using to practice with.

Lyrics
You're the face I wanna see every night before I sleep, run away with me.
Let's run away and make each day we have left the best one yet.
You will dance and I will sing, we'll get high on everything, run away with me.
Let's run away and feel the wind in our hair.

'Cos I just wanna feel something that we had
before responsibility bacame an obligation.
It came and took the wheel out of both our hands,
driving you away from me with every new direction taken every day,
Prompting me to say, let's run away.

Grab your coat and fuel the car, leave our mobiles on the bar, and let them ring,
Let's leave before the morning stands in our way, and we stay.
We could leave without regret and go back to where we met, on that perfect day.
Let's run away and leave our woe's in the wake that we make.

'Cos I just wanna feel something that we had
before responsibility bacame an obligation.
It came and took the wheel out of both our hands,
driving you away from me with every new direction taken every day,
Prompting me to say, let's run away.

With the tides at our command we'll write our names across the sand,
as the curtain falls.
Whatever comes our way, we'll always have the day we ran away.

Thanks for the great feedback guys, this is probably the most basic song I have, maybe I should try to do more like this.

Another Very Good One
Your style reminds me a lot of what I do with my acoustic stuff. Only your recordings sound great. If you are interested in a collaboration, message me. I have a few songs I think you would be great for. Excellent singing, proof more is not always better.

Really nice
I love the simplicity of this. Very nice background harmonies. You definitely have a talent for song-writing and this sort of folky-acoustic sound really works for your voice and playing. Another wonderful tune. Thanks!

can I have your autograph?
You are so good, and I am sure you have heard that many times before but your music is wonderful and I am thrilled you are here. I look forward to whatever you do next as your talent is fantastic! This is a really great song and I would bet money that you would have no problem with your girl running away with you in a second..... All the best

Sorry!
Again, sorry to the people who my PC doesn't seem to want me to reply to...

Thanks for the kind words Kassia, I love this style and I'm definitely going to be doing more.

You've got me grinning again Gail, it's so good to get such great feedback from talented artists. I'm a bit worried now that my other material isn't going to hit the mark.

Jon.

Tugging at my heart there
Jon, the lyrics are spectacular. I am so darned impressed with your songwriting and musicianship. It's people like you that make me sratch my head wondering why you aren't standing on stage with a handful of music awards.
