Close your eyes tonight, make believe the train will come along,
And carry me back where I should be.
Reach out through the night, and wash away the pain that wasted so much time,
And break my heart, break my mind.

Chorus:
On the run, on the run, the sheriff come get me, say I'm on the run.
On the run, on the run, the sheriff come get me, and I'm on the run.

Standin' out in the rain, can't remember when I felt so all alone,
Tired to the bone.
But if I have to run, you know I'll keep the thing I've done inside of me,
Until the hangman sets me free.

Chorus

Lookin' back on some imaginary time,
Thinkin' back when I was raised,
Lookin' at the blackbirds singin' on the line,
But they can't sing you back to me.

Chorus

Do-do-do. Do-do-doo, do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-doooo.
Do-do-do. Do-do-doo, do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-dooooooooooooooo.
