about

Runaway follows the bitter path of lost love.

lyrics

Runaway

You’ve got a heart like a runaway
You want to escape but there aint no escaping yesterday
When you told me you loved me at midnight
But in the morning I saw the lie in your eyes
All I ever wanted was to love you

You’ve got a heart like a getaway driver
Pedal to the metal when the stakes get higher
I think you’re a coward and a child
You can’t hide the fear in your handsome smile
All I ever wanted was to love you
Wanted to hold you

Ain't freedom feeling good after all these years
Don’t the highway call you
Don’t it scream your name
Saying hey come on you runaway
Come on you runaway

You’ve got a mind like a renegade fighter
Betraying your emotions when the blood pumps harder
Don’t matter which side you’re on
You still bleed when the bullet hits its mark
I hear you howling in the cold dark
All I ever wanted was to love you
Wanted to hold you

Ain't freedom feeling good after all these years
Don’t the highway call you
Don’t it scream your name
Saying hey come on you runaway
Come on you runaway

Somebody’s gotta pay for the life you’re living
Somebody’s gotta give a little piece of their soul
Well it’s me
It’s me who’s divided
And I’m standing on the edge of your love
Just waiting for a call from you
A call from your heart
And that ain't gonna come

You’ve got a heart like a runaway
You want to escape but there aint no escaping yesterday
You pour yourself a coffee
Pack your bags in the early morning light
Stick your thumb out along the roadside
All I ever wanted was to love you
Wanted to hold you
Wanted to know you
But you’re a runaway
You’re just a runaway
Aint nothing but a runaway
You’re a runaway
