(P.French/C.O’Brien)

lyrics

Runnin’

Verse I:

Livin’

Breathin’

Learnin’

Strugglin’

Where’s my father?

Loved my mother.

Grew up humble.

Stayed in trouble.

Aspirations, I watched them crumble.

Knew more than I could say.

Them premonitions on my brain.

Tired of livin’ my life this way.

And, I’m weary of this bullshit game.

Need a step up. Need a change.

Got to make this paper, man.

All this work and, shit to show for.

Sometimes, I don’t want it no more.

But, this passion inside of me won’t let me let this music be, so…

If this is what I’ve chosen here than, this will be the life I lead.

But, I’m runnin’.

Hook:

I’m Runnin’.

Runnin’ for me.

Runnin’ for life. (x2)

Verse II:

Reachin’.

Dreamin’.

Pushin’.

Schemin’.

Wanting something to believe in

Fighting demons.

Writing, because my purpose has a reason.

Chip on my shoulder.

And, it grows colder when you have no light.

Nothing is free it seems, you’re hopeless when you have no sight.

Now the pressure’s on.

And, the show must go.

And, I may be young but, I already know that the business is rough.

And, I’m on my own.

I’m a soldier so…Imma take My road.

Beautiful Blessings Bestowed upon me within my Birth.

I will be me. ‘Til the day my body leaves this earth.

I’m Runnin’.

about

PaviElle Minneapolis, Minnesota

PaviElle's sound often has the faint flavor of Sly and the Family Stone, or seems to draw on the influences of little Jose James, and Rufus—with the soulful feel of Bill Withers occasionally evident in the groove.
