The Interim

The Interim

Diana Ross

I found you throwin' pebbles at a star
And countin' rain drops in a jar
I had forgotten that some people
Really are still dreamin', they are still dreamin'

You never knew what fear was all about
You never felt the hollow ache of doubt
That someday you just maybe without
A next time, without a next time

I wish that I was stronger and able to hold
Without the help of someone weaker, I can mold
Into the person I would like myself to be, to be, to be

I heard a thought moving in it's shell
The sound of stones dropped into a well
And all too soon it was so easy to tell
That I was winning in a game
That I didn't want to play, that I didn't want to play

I just got to stop runnin' away
I just got to stop runnin' away

I wish that I was stronger and able to hold
Without the help of someone weaker, I can mold
Into the person I would like myself to be, to be, to be

I don't know where it all began
Where I've been runnin' time and time again
I'm just waitin' for the moment when
I can slow it down, oh, when I can slow it down

I just got to stop runnin' away
I just got to stop runnin' away
I just got to stop runnin' away
Runnin', runnin', yeah, runnin'

Won't you help me?
Help me stop runnin' away
Won't you help me?
Help me stop runnin' away, runnin'
