From the album Goldfish Diaries

"Running Back to You" was recorded on a 100 year old mandolin my dad picked up for me at a garage sale in Lincoln, NE. I didn't know any chords on it but figured out a riff for the song that I was actually planning to co-write with a beautiful singer songwriter I had met and ended up going on a date with. Welllll, the date didn't go as well as planned and when I got home I ended up writing the song by myself about the date instead of with her... Ooops. She was a great girl but when you are used to the depth of knowing someone to the core and then you hangout with a stranger its no ones fault you feel like you're walking under a streetlight instead of a radiant sunrise.

Lyrics

How does one compare a ray of sunshine to a streetlight?
You set the bar high enough a thousand lamps won't do
It's taking all my strength to keep myself from running back to you

Going on a date I can't help feeling out of place
Wine and chandeliers don't feel special if you're not here
It's taking all my strength to keep myself from running back to you
Running back to...

I'm fighting the battle of pleasure and pain
My memories fight the battle of pleasure and pain
the highest mountains and the lowest valleys

I thought the sadness had passed
but driving home in the dark I had this relapse
as the streetlights blur into a haze
tonight all I'm beggin' for is the light of your face

It's taking all my stregth to keep myself from running back
it's taking all my strength to keep myself from running back to you
