Runaways lyrics

(Instrumental intro)

Blonde hair blowin' in the summer wind,
A blue-eyed girl playing in the sand
I'd been on a trail for a little while,
But that was the night that she broke down and held my hand

Teenage rush, she said, "maybe I'll just runaway, we got time"
Well that ain't much, we can't wait 'til tomorrow
You gotta know that this is real,
Baby why you wanna fight it?
It's the one thing you can choose, oh!

We got engaged on a Friday night
I swore on the head of our unborn child that I could take care of the three of us
But I got the tendency to slip when the nights get wild
It's in my blood,
She says she might just runaway
Somewhere else, some place good

WE CAN'T WAIT TIL TOMORROW!
You gotta know that this is real,
Baby why you wanna fight it?
It's the one thing you can choose

Let's take a chance baby we can't lose
Mean we're all just runaways

I knew that when I met you,
I'm not gonna let you runaway
I knew that when I held you,
I wasn't lettin' go

We used to look at the stars and confess our dreams,
Hold each other till morning light
We used to laugh, now we only fight
Baby are you lonesome now?

At night, I come home after they go to sleep
Like a stumbling ghost, I haunt these halls
There's a picture of us on our wedding day
I recognize the girl, but I can't settle in these walls

WE CAN'T WAIT TIL TOMORROW!
No we're caught up in the appeal,
Baby why you wanna hide it?
It's the last thing on my mind
(Why you wanna hide it?)
I turn the engine over and my body just comes alive
And we all just runaways,
I knew that when I met you,
I'm not gonna let you runaway
I knew that when I held you,
I wasn't lettin go, no no no!
(No no no!)
(And we're all just runaways)
Yeah runaways.
(And we're all just runaways)
Yeah!
