Emerson, Lake & Palmer – Runaway lyrics

RUNAWAY
(Robert Berry)

You're headed for a better life, something you can feel deep inside
Somewhere where the lights are low, and there ain't nobody around to go
Saying things that just ain't true, making such a fool out of you
They think they know just where you've been
And they make you feel like living is a sin

So you run run runaway, and tell me that there's no other way
Say that you'll be leaving soon, you say there's nothing else you can do
Oh can't you see I'm just a runaway too, oh but you keep on running

Been livin' in, been livin' out, you want to know what life's all about
You're finding that it ain't as good, it don't do what they told you it would
So now's the time 2 make it right, you'll walk on out when no one's in sight
I still think there's a better way, but you can't find a reason to stay

So you run run runaway, and tell me that there's no other way
Say that you'll be leaving soon, you say there's nothing else you can do
So you run run runaway, and tell me that there's no other way
Say that you'll be leaving soon (Tell me to find me there)
You say there's nothing else you can do
Oh can't you see I'm just a runaway too, oh, oh oh

You're headed for a better life, something you can feel deep inside
Somewhere where the lights are low, and there ain't nobody around to go
Saying things that just ain't true, making such a fool out of you
They think they know just where you've been
And they make you feel like living is a sin

So you run run runaway, and tell me that there's no other way
Say that you'll be leaving soon (Tell me to find me there)
You say there's nothing else you can do
So you run run runaway, and tell me that there's no other way
Say that you'll be leaving soon (You tell me to find me baby)
You say there's nothing else you can do
Oh can't you see baby, oh can't you see, can't you see?
You keep running, you're running and running and
Run run runaway, and tell me that there's no other way
Say that you'll be leaving soon (Tell me to find me there)
You say there's nothing else you can do
So you run run runaway, and tell me that there's no other way
Say that you'll be leaving soon (Oh baby tell me to find me baby)
You say there's nothing else you can do
