Run away
Run away from here
Run away
Run away from here

Run away all alone
Run away from fear
Run away from sadness
Run away from tears

Run away from home
From the wife and kids
From the cats and the doggies
Run away to forgive

Run into the light

Run away from here

Hide away in the lion's den
Play with matches and get burned
Flyin' high in an aeroplane
Run away, run away, run away

In a fast car on a highway
Burnin' tracks towards sunset
No turning back and no regrets
I'll think of you if I don't forget

Run away
Run away, run away
Run away from here

Run away from the church
Run away from guilt
Run away from your dream
Everything you built

Run into the light
Run into the light

Run away from here

Hide away in the lion's den
Play with matches and get burned
Flyin' high in an aeroplane
Run away, run away, run away

In a fast car on a highway
Burnin' tracks towards sunset
No turning back and no regrets
I'll think of you

Run away from the office
From your old work shoes
Run away from crime
And the big city blues

Run away from money
And the jaws of death
Run away from lawyers
And the government

Run away from your friends
And your family too
Run away from yourself
Run away from you

Run away from here
Run away, run away
Run away from here
Run away from here
