latex package gb4e: How to make the first line “running text”

I am writing a grammatical description of a language using the package gb4e to produce the interlinear glosses. The editor has asked that the first line of the gloss appear as running text, i.e. is not aligned word-by-word with the second and third lines, but just appears with one space between words.

Simply put, I want the text in the \gll line to NOT align word-by-word with the text in the following line. However, I still want to the following two lines to align word-by-word. Is this even possible?

I've been fiddling with this, but can't figure out how to do it. Any advice would be great!
