Carrie is a girl disillusioned by the world and her crazy man
So she takes her vows and she swears no matter how she'll never fall again
Carrie, who can blame you if you find some kind of refuge in your solitude
But there's gotta come a time when your passion for your freedom makes a slave of you
She said wait, wait, wait

CHORUS:

Carrie don't you run, Carrie don't you run, Carrie, Carrie, don't you hide
What's going on inside
Carrie don't you run, Carrie don't you run, Carrie, Carrie, don't you hide
What's going on inside

Carrie once again in the company of friends 'Cause she's so alone
Ever so aware of a part of her that no one's ever really known
There will come a day when she'll find a way to fade into the scenery
Carrie are you alive or just going through the motions like you seem to be
She lives in a dream to wait for a dream who waits for tomorrow
She said wait, wait, wait
Now Carrie don't you fight it, no don't even try
'Cause in your heart what's been decided just will not be denied
Am I getting through to you all I wanna do for you, is take you for a ride
Oh Carrie, Carrie, Carrie


CHORUS:

Carrie don't you run, Carrie don't you run
