Lyrics

Runaway

When we were young
You know you told me somethin'
On the day we first met

We were only kids
Just havin fun together
But I will never forget

I was just too young
How could I understand
Your lonely fear

But when I had to leave
You held me close and you
And whispered in my ear

Come runaway with me
Runaway with me, runaway with me
Runaway with me

Runaway with me
Runaway with me, runaway with me
Runaway with me


We had so much fun
I saw you Everyday
For a year or more

But then we left town
I had to say goodbye
A single tear you wore

Though many years have passed
So many times I wished
I could go back to that day

And say the words I've said
A millions times in my head
Since I moved away

Come, runaway with me
Runaway with me, runaway with me
Runaway with me

Runaway with me
Runaway with me, runaway with me
Runaway with me

[instrumental break]

And now we're standing here
I see you face is wearing
More than a few tears
They say it tells the story
of every bad choice
you made over the years

How could they know
You never had a single choice
This is how you were raised

We don't say a word...
We just runaway

Come, runaway with me
Runaway with me, runaway.
Runaway with me
Runaway with me, runaway with me
Runaway with me, runaway with me

runaway, runaway with me, run
runaway, runaway with me
runaway.

good music, tone, good vocal, good drums decent mix

This is a cool grove with a sing-along chorus!

Got a cool vocal sound like Jim Morrison
