Lyrics:

Where ya goin' and why so fast?
You don't want your problems you don't want your past
And you're so worried about the rain
You think by leaving that you can dodge the pain, Jonah

And where on earth do you expect to go
Where you won't find a single foe?
You're flat out choosing to ignore what's good
Focused solely on how it could be

But what could be is not what should be
And what should be is hard to see when you're on the run

You can run but you can't hide
You can try to evade the tide
But the waves of life will hunt you down
And I know that you're afraid but don't run away
Listen when I say that you should stay, Jonah

If you leave now what do you hope to find?
Don't you know that all your problems won't be far behind?
And whether here or out there we're all bound to fail
But better here than in the belly of a whale

And you cry and downcast your eyes and
You refuse to see that right here with me
Is right where you should be

You can run but you can't hide
You can try to evade the tide
But the waves of life will hunt you down
And I know that you're afraid but don't run away
Listen when I say that you should stay
And it's OK, Jonah

Don't you know that everywhere you go
Your shadow will follow
And every step you take you know your heart could break
But life's a risk a risk you should be willing to take

If you take the time to zoom out
Beyond your shadow of a doubt
You'll see that there's nowhere to run

And it's a shame to think that you won't be here
When the storm is over and the skies are clear
So please just stay right here with me

You can run but you can't hide
You can try to evade the tide
But the waves of life will hunt you down
And I know that you're afraid but don't run away
Listen when I say that you should stay
And it's OK, Jonah
