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 & kids From the cats & the doggies--run away to forgive Run into the light . . .
Chorus Hide away--in the lion's den Play with matches--get burned Flyin' high--in an aeroplane Run away . . . In a fast car--on a highway Burnin' tracks--towards the sunset No turning back--and no regrets I'll think of you . . . (if i don't forget)
Run away from the church--run away from guilt Runaway from (your) dream--everything you built Run into the light . . .
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 . . .
