Came to the city just a country girl
Thinking how fast can you change the world
But to your surprise
It all takes time

Flashing lights like you're a movie star
It's just the glare coming off the bar
It's not what you thought
Not the ticket you bought

This lonesome road can make you
It'll grab a hold and take you
You can't do much 'bout what they think
They'll be movin' on before you can blink

Now it's alright
It's okay
Eveything's moving away too fast
You're just a runaway

And it's alright
It's okay
You're trying to make it on your own
You're just a runaway

Came to the city just a simple kid
Made you a woman look at what they did
Ripped out another page
Left it on the stage

All you can breathe is the cloudy air
Root for the smoke and the twisted stairs
You can make it back
Just across the tracks

The cold hard streets can make you
The sleepless nights might take you
You can lose yourself before you wake
It won't be long before you break

(Yeah)
It's alright
It's okay
Everything's movin' away too fast
You're just a runaway

And it's alright
It's okay
You'll try to make it on your own
You're just a runaway

You're just a runaway

(Yeah)(oh now)
It's alright
It's okay
Everything's movin' away too fast

And it's alright
It's okay
You'll try to make it on your own
You're just a runaway

So all alone
And now you're tryin' to make it on your own
You're just a runaway
You're just a runaway

    He's talking about how a girl feels when she goes out on her own. We all have big dreams of what will happen before we realize how mean the world really is.
