Song Description

young girl runaway, in trouble. gets advice from a "street angel".


Running copyright 2007
by Aycock, Talley and Phillips

She was running from a broken home
Left her mama; hit the road
Did whatever it took to keep goin'
In a stairwell to the underground
Passed an old man; turned around;
Looked in his eyes to hear what he was sayin'

With his open face and his gentle smile
They stood and talked for a little while
She hadn't felt this peaceful in a long time
"If you're looking for some happiness,"
He said,"count the ways that you've been blessed;
Feel it in your heart, and smile...

When you're wishin'
And prayin'
Listen to what you're sayin' "

"I've seen you livin' on the street
With your head down and your spirit beat
Now I'm looking at you, you're such a pretty lady.
I'm out here 'cause I wanta be,
But you're a young girl with so much to see.
If I can turn you around, then just maybe

I can show you that all we do or say
Is a wish we make and a prayer we pray
If you're wishin' for it, you ain't got it.
But if you see it done and you're thankful for,
The sky will open and it will pour
A blessing on you, more than you can hold...

When you're wishin'
And prayin'
Listen to what your sayin' "

(instrumental break)

She looked around and he was gone
Used the last of her change to make that call
got Mama on the phone,
Said, "Watcha doin'?"
"Baby, I've been prayin' for an angel to send me a sign
Prayin' just to make it work out this time.."
"Mom, I'm through with runnin'
I'm comin' home.."

I'm wishin'
And prayin'
And hearin' what I'm sayin'

And prayin'
And listenin' to what I'm sayin'

I'm comin' home
I'm not runnin' anymore
