Neil Young – Born To Run lyrics

I see the light
Of a thousand lamps
Burning in your eyes
Still I have to turn away
For you to stay alive

'Cause I was born to run
I was born to run
I was born to run
I was born to run run run

Security had a hold on me
I had a thousand friends
But reality wasn't told to me
And I found out in the end

'Cause I was born to run
I was born to run
I was born to run
I was born to run run run
