I Run

I Run by Melodie Yvonne Ramey

I run ‘cause I think if I’m smooth enough I can run into your arms
I smile ‘cause I think if I’m cute enough I’ll win you with my charms
But all I really know is what you make me see
That my special kinda crazy’s not as fucked as it could be

I run ‘cause I think if I’m same enough you might run right back to me
I want you by my side but when you’re here I just want free
I love your every wrinkle, I swim in your big eyes
But I know that you can hurt me ‘cause I’m beggin’ for your lies

I run from you like clockwork as you run right through my mind
I run from you while prayin’ you are runnin’ right behind
I run around just like a foolish chicken with no head
And I run around all crazy lookin’ way too far ahead

I run ‘cause I think if I stop too long I’ll realize what I’ve done
I run ‘cause I know if I stand too still I’ll hate what I’ve become
But mostly I just run from what you told me not to be
When you said don’t settle down, dear, or you’ll end up just like me

Don’t ever settle down, dear, or you’ll end up just like me

I run

Melodie Yvonne

Melodie Yvonne, lead photographer and owner of Photographic Melodie, grew up in the small southern Indiana town of North Vernon. She picked up her first camera at the age of 5, and was immediately hooked. By the age of 15 she began to turn every trip, even just to the local park, into a fantasy scene of her own imagination, and started mentoring with many local professionals. Melodie received an Associates of Applied Science in Visual Technologies majoring in Photography from Ivy Tech in 2002 after studying under acclaimed professors and many other masters in the field.

Melodie’s main focus has always been music photography. Growing up listening to many amazing musicians inspired her dream to create visual images that made people feel the way they do when listening to music. Her goal was to help people SEE the music.

Melodie has done numerous jobs around the country ranging from working for bands to being the official photographer on many southern Indiana Poker Runs. Her specialties are in nature, music, and candid event photography. She published her first print work, a collection of images & poetry, in 2011, and has since published many more print works. Melodie currently acts as owner & lead photographer at Photographic Melodie, House Photographer for Purdue Theatre, and Tour Photographer for multiple Billboard Charts topping bands as well as freelance work with many other media outlets, venues, and musicians.
