Kiwanuka, Michael - No More Running Lyrics




1, 2, 3, 4

Mama she said
Got to keep him close to you
Got to keep him close to you
You might be alright
Mama she said
Got to keep him close to you
Got to keep him close to you
You might be alright
No more running through the alleys in the nighttime
No more running through the wars in the days
No more holding on to something just to leave you
Who goes running through those alleys anyway?
Mama she said
Keep it behind you
Keep it behind you
You might be alright
Mama she said
Keep it behind you
Keep it behind you
You might be alright
No more running through the alleys in the nighttime
No more running through the wars in the days
No more holding on to something just to leave you
Who goes running through those alleys anyway?
Mama she said
Hold your head up high
Keep your head up high
You might be alright
Mama she said
Hold your head up high
Keep your head up high
You might be alright
No more running through the alleys in the nighttime
No more running through the wars in the days
No more holding on to something just to leave you
Who goes running through those alleys anyway?

    Search and found it. Going to take up ukelele lesson. Gonna smash this song . Inspirational words and soul soothing music.

  2. Mr. C

    I heard this song and I just couldn't keep my eyes from swelling up with tears.
    There are few songs that can make you want to come in just a little closer.
    This is one of them.

    dear frank i wish you the best. my husband died recently due to alcohol. hold your head up high my friend. it pains me so that he is gone. i recently finished a book, In the realm of the hungry ghosts. i recommended everyone to read. the story teaches us compassion and gives the reader a better understanding of why people use, i only wish i had found the book about 15 years ago. peace to you. i love all of this special artist music

  65. Frank Lewis

    I love this song. I've been destroyed by drugs
    And alcohol for a lot of years. Got some years of sobriety now, so after I saw the
    Movie and heard the song it made me
    Cry. Out of gratitude of course. Now
    When i listen to music I hear angels sing.

    Michel Bourdon

    Franck don't destroy you,take care about you,the life is beautiful if you know how to take the good way to open the light in your mind ! The USA are magnifical country for the people who know to observe and listen .........Good Luck !

    Nick Young

    From someone who struggles with opioid addiction this inspiring,I hope for the day I can listen to music sober and fall back In love with it when I was my 14 y/o dorky self

    David Corbett

    Wow. Thanks for sharing mate.

    rosa rodriguez

    God's blessings. You are fighting the great fight and nobody knows.

    regi bolden

    Frank, you are dead on! (or should I say alive on). I'm pretty much the same, although I didn't do drugs, the alcohol nearly killed me. Like you I'm in sobriety and fell in love with the song after watching the movie. It too, is a testament to the every day struggles we have most folks never see. You keep going brother, Thank you for the post.

  66. Whovian Gamer

    The movie was worth watching just to find this tune.
