Everyone needs a place to runaway, runaway

Summer night, moonlit sky
Tearing pages from a magazine, she cries
"I don't wanna be the lonely one tonight"

She said, "I came to this place, full of dreams
Young and innocent and only 16
Now I wonder if it's too late to turn back"

So she runs, and she hides
And she dries the tears from her eyes
And the night goes on, and on, and on

She's in the twilight zone
Yeah, you gotta run, run, runaway
It's such a long way home
When it hurts so bad you gotta run, run, runaway

Perfect day, feels like spring
Can see forever but you can't see anything
Now I wonder why they call it paradise

It's a crime, it's a shame
And they won't remember your name
And your life goes on, and on, and on

It's like the twilight zone
Yeah, you gotta run, run, runaway
But she won't go home
So she's gotta run, run, runaway

She came from a small town
So tired of getting pushed around
In the dark of the night, no one around
She'll run from this shabby town, yeah yeah yeah

It's a laugh, it's a game
Don't you let it drive you insane
'Cause your life goes on, and on, and on

It's like the twilight zone
Yeah, you gotta run, run, runaway
But she won't go home
When it hurts so bad you gotta run, run, runaway

She's in the twilight zone
Yeah, you gotta run, run, runaway
It's such a long way home
When it hurts so bad you gotta run, run, runaway

It's like the twilight zone
Yeah, you gotta run, run, runaway
But she won't go home
When it hurts so bad you gotta run, run, runaway

She's in the twilight zone
Yeah, you gotta run, run, runaway
It's such a long way home
When it hurts so bad you gotta run, run, runaway
