Written by Louise Goffin & Bill Olvis.






I know babe, it's all right
Go on, I'd never ask you to stay

'Cause you run, you fight
And I never had to live that way




Runaway . . .

Yeah, he gets on in the world

Looking for a runaway girl
I don't know what it is about the boy


That makes me feel so fine

But I wish the runaway boy was mine




It's ok, it's all right
You might find something around the next bend

Yeah, you shine and you light

The empty streets we all run in the end




Runaway . . .
Yeah, he gets on in the world


Looking for a runaway girl
I don't know what it is about the boy

That makes me feel so fine
But I wish the runaway boy was mine
