This is a song that’s been in progress for over a year. It’s about the fact that I felt, while single/solo-poly/loosely partnered and traveling a lot for several years before my current relationship, like an impostor because I really wanted a partner and a family and a home, but that I had felt prior to that like an impostor in my first marriage for wishing I were more free. It’s sweet, and sappy, and I’m not sure I love it, though my partner Tom says he does. We’ll see if it fits on next original album, whenever that may be.


I only ever knew loves that fed on distance
I was connoisseur of such bad boy kisses

Whenever four walls were around me it felt like a cage
And I would bite my own limbs off to escape

And kill every jailer
I didn’t need a savior
But I fought to save myself

And now I run run run into your arms
Oh how I wish these walls will form our home
I could never have one until
I had someone with which to build
Who would set me freer than I ever did

I was careless who I pretended to be
And every move I made betrayed some past version of me

But if each self I choose is some kind of charlatan
I may as well pick the kind worthy of your devotion

It was sinister, sinister to pretend
I was on the run, on the run
It would never end
Till I couldn’t run away anymore

And now I run run run into your arms
