08. Escape

Learning to Lose
by The Turning


On a cold November night
I stumbled out the door
And I looked into your eyes
That’s when I realized
That everything was going to change today

I can’t escape this place I’ve made
The world cannot afford the things that I adore

And even as I try
I still cannot escape
The feelings that I hide
They’re running after me
And it’s driving me away

And if you run, you run so fast you’ll fly
I’m running from the fears
That push me half insane

By Jacob McGinnis and Matt Warren

Behind the Song:
“’Escape’ was originally played with a full band. The drums, bass, lead guitar and piano were great, but we felt like they stole the spotlight from the heart of the song. We knew the soul of the song was strong enough to carry it, even if the music was simplified. What ensued was an intimate vocal that is perhaps perfectly vulnerable.” - Jacob McGinnis (The Turning)
