I hear your high-heels
Clickin' down the boulevard
You got your suitcase in hand
Guess you're takin' it hard

You swear you'll never
Trust another man
Ah, but I know that you will
It's just a question of when

So open up your eyes
To the light
You've been far too alone
For too many nights, oh

Someday, someway, somewhere
Love is gonna find you
Somehow, someone
Is gonna beg you to stay

But you keep on runnin'
You keep runnin'
You keep on runnin' away

I hear it whispered
In the neighborhood
At one time you were the best
It was just understood

Then someone came
And took you for a fool
The word is out on the street
That love is looking for you

So open up your eyes
To the light
You've been far too alone
For too many nights, oh

Someday, someway, somewhere
Love is gonna find you
Somehow, somewhere
Don't look now
I'm comin' up behind you

But you keep on runnin'
You keep runnin'
You keep on runnin' away
Yes you do baby

So don't be fooled
You got me comin'
I ain't no fool, you keep me runnin'
And I don't know why
No, I don't know why

So open up, don't be afraid, baby
Is there someone standin' in our way
Won't you tell me why
Don't you tell me goodbye, oh

Someday, someway, somewhere
Love is gonna find you
Somehow, someone
Is gonna beg you to stay, baby

Somehow, somewhere
Don't look now
I'm comin' up behind you

But you keep runnin'
You keep runnin'
You keep on runnin' away

But you keep on runnin'
You keep runnin'
You keep on runnin' away

But you keep on runnin'
You keep runnin'
You keep on runnin' away

But you keep on runnin'
You keep runnin' away
But you keep on runnin'
You keep runnin' away

But you keep on runnin'
You keep runnin' away
But you keep on runnin'
You keep runnin' away
