You ought to be careful with your promises
The first rule of love is to believe you
Words come so easy from a thousand miles
Away and on the telephone line, so baby

[CHORUS]
Tell me where you gonna run to?
When we're finally standing face to face
A promise can never take the place
Of kissing good night and never leaving
You afraid that love will slow you down
So where you gonna run to now?

It's easy to keep safe at a distance
Protecting your world the way that you do
But safe isn't love and lovers can't be made
If they were never given the chance, so baby

[CHORUS]
Tell me where you gonna run to?
When we're finally standing face to face
A promise can never take the place
Of kissing good night and never leaving
You afraid that love will slow you down
So where you gonna run to now?

Get into your heart
Just get out of your head
Nothing comes easy when you are afraid
Then we can start
To see what our lives would be if we're not apart

[CHORUS]
Tell me where you gonna run to?
When we're finally standing face to face
A promise can never take the place
Of kissing good night and never leaving
You afraid that love will slow you down
So where you gonna run to now?
