Lyrics
Yesterday in the morning time

the sun was shining bright like you

Afternoon the breeze was warm

but I was feeling kinda blue



You see I know you want me baby

as much as I want you

Understanding these complications is

not something I can do



So we're sittin' here on the old stone wall

watching the sunset disappear

We keep the conversation light

like there's nothing really happening here



But there's feelings flying left and right

you can cut' em with a knife even in the moonlight

Then you look at me with them big brown eyes

you say sorry but I got to say goodbye

An I say why



Why do you run from me baby

Every time I look at you

I know you feel it too but you walk away

So tell me why

Why do you run from me baby

Why do you run from me and you

When you know this love is true tell me why



There's a cat fish jumping in the lake tonight

and I tell myself it'll be Al right

I say hold on, hold on, just be strong

just be patient now it won't be long



An every now and then I believe this is true

that one of these nights I'll be making' love to you

And one of these days you'll look at me and say

It's time now hey to throw my fears away



And you would own me heart and Soul

body, mind and spirit until we grew old

And if there's any after life at all

I'd meet you back here on the same stone wall



But I been waiting now for oh so long

I finally wrote this painful song

I'm frustrated, kinda jaded, kinda mad

but mostly now, I'm feeling oh so sad

So tell me why

Why do you run from me baby

Every time I look at you

I know you feel it too but you walk away

So tell me why

Why do you run from me baby

Why do you run from me and you

When you know this love is true tell me why



Sometimes this life it can be good

like hanging out here in the neighborhood

Summer days and long hot nights

the most irritating thing is a mosquito bite



And crickets they sing song after song

they're serenading us here on the old stone wall

Waiting' for a moment of truth to come

when you look love in the eye and baby you don't run



I know she hurt you bad, she cheated and lied

Then she took you up the river for a hell of a ride

I know it's hard to trust your feelings again

But hey she's not me, not now, not then



An I wonder if the stars are lonely hearts

people who loved yet lived apart

Shining on the black sky hoping to see

two star crossed lovers

finaly set themselves free

Tell me why do you run from me baby

Every time I look at you

I know you feel it too but you walk away

So tell me why

Why do you run from me baby

Why do you run from me and you

When you know this love is true tell me why
