Threw my bad fortune
Off the top of
A tall building
I'd rather have done it with you

Your boy's smile
Five in the morning
Looked into your eyes
And I was really in love

In Chinatown
Hung over
You showed me
Just what I could do

Talkin about
Time travel
And the meaning
Just what it was worth

And I feel like
Some bird of paradise
My bad fortune
Slipping away

And I feel the
Innocence of a child
Everybody's got
Something good to say

Things I once thought
Unbelievable
In my life
Have all taken place

When we walked through
Little Italy
I saw my reflection
Come right off your face

I paint pictures
To remember
You're too beautiful
To put it into words

Like a gypsy
You dance in circles
All around me
And all over the world

And I feel like
Some bird of paradise
My bad fortune
Slipping away

And I feel the
Innocence of a child
Everybody's got
Something good to say

And I feel like
Some bird of paradise
My bad fortune
Slipping away

And I feel the
Innocence of a child
Everybody's got
Something good to say

So I take my
Good fortune
And I fantasize
Of our leaving
Like some modern-day
Gypsy landslide
Like some modern-day
Bonnie and clyde

On the run again ( on the run again )
On the run again ( on the run again )
On the run again ( on the run again )
On the run again ( on the run again )
