Hurryin' To Us

words and music by Kim Townsend

The bright lights called me just last Thursday
so I packed up and headed out
I never considered what I was doin’
my dreams were all I thought about

Well, I left friends and I left my family
and I left Texas way behind
I left alone but I wasn’t lonely
I stashed you in my heart and mind


Now I’m not runnin’ away from you, my darling
why are you making such a fuss
I had to get away I couldn’t wait another day
I’m high-tailin’ it hurryin’ to get to us

I might fail but not be a failure
I could succeed and not be a success
But if I don’t try to spread my little wings and fly
I’ll die inside choked up with regret
