Spent the best of my life running scared
In the city
Left my shoes and my clothes and
My lovers behind, yeah
Oh but I felt incomplete
Living out there in the street

I was always alone and afraid
Such a pity
Little girls just don't know what comes
Out after dark
But the devil wasn't in here
Down on that dead end street

And I say
Running for cover
Running for cover
Running for cover
It's take keeping me running
I'm just scared that he's out tonight
It's keeping me running
I don't know why, but it's getting dark
Say the devil's in the park
And it's already after dark
Running for cover
Running for cover
Running for cover, now

Life is really so hard when you live in the city
No one know what a young girl
Has on her mind, yeah
But you're headed for defect
Down on that dead end street

Never learned of the lesson
You should, such a pity
Still and all you'll stay away
The others behind
And the promise in the dark
Is that the devil's in the park

And I say
Running for cover
Running for cover
Running for cover
It's take keeping me running
I'm just scared that he's out tonight
It's keeping me running
I don't know why, but it's getting dark
Say the devil's in the park
And it's already after dark

Running for cover
Running for cover
Running for cover
Spent the best of my life running scared
In the city
Left my shoes and my clothes and
My lovers behind, yeah
Oh but I felt incomplete
Living out there in the street

Running for cover
Running for cover
Running for cover
It's take keeping me running
I'm just scared that he's out tonight
It's keeping me running
I don't know why, but it's getting dark
Say the devil's in the park
And it's already after dark
