Come, run away with me

Far away, further than the eye can see

Across meadows of mustard

Skip through thorny rose bushes

Find me safe in the wilderness

Don’t dare deny the lightheadedness…


Leave your caring family be

Together we sow our own family tree

A girl with unmanageable curls

A boy exceptionally fair

A house surrounded by flowers and humming bees

Where two lovers shall frolic, forever free…


Come, run away with me

The heart won’t need all that much money

A library bursting with books

A larder stocked enough to cook

A bed warm enough for two

My life, that I long to share with you…
