Oh oh oh oh oh
*clap clap*
Oh oh oh oh oh
*clap clap*

I hit you, like a train
You feel the pain,
I ain't coming back.
I cut you,
Cut you deep
But you can't keep up on my truck.
If I loved you, I'd stick around.
Youre on the ground
'Cause I knocked you down
And youre falling,
Every night
That you can't fight that I can hear you pray
I'd stay just one more day

(Chorus)
But I always run away, yeah
I'm nothing but a runaway

I hooked you
With the beat
The heavy heat
gettin' outta hand
And I loved you,
In the lonely bed
The word you said, made me understand
That if I loved you, I would stay
I'd never stray, little runaway.
And I'll fall down
Lonely night, I can't fight
But maybe I should pray
Lord, give me the strength to stay

(Chorus)
'Cause I always run away, yeah
I'm nothing but a runaway

Oh oh oh oh oh

(Bridge)
Why can't I just stay in one place?
Somebody gotta put me in a cage!
Oh, I don't want to be this way, oh

(Chorus)
I'm nothing, nothing,
Nothing but a runaway, yeah (2x)

Ooooh, I'm nothing but a runaway!
Runaway!
A runaway!(2x)
Ooooh, ooooh, oooh-ooooohh

Oh oh oh oh oh
*clap clap*
Oh oh oh oh oh
