17 years by her side,
Broke the same bread,
Wore the same clothes and we said,
"We're sisters with nothing between.
If one of us fall, the other will soon be following. "

Both of you fell the same day,
You don't know why,
One of you never woke up,
And you lay your body down on the floor.
You're desperate to hear her footsteps again,
But this house is on fire,
We need to go.

Oh, you don't have to go it alone, go it alone.

Run for your life my love,
Run and you don't give up,
With all that you are,
All that you want,
I will be close behind,
Run for your life.

She had a fire inside,
And that terrified you,
You swore that you'd never lose your control.
Baby let yourself go,
'Cause part of you hides,
And I know the hunger inside of you is strong.
You can only hold back the river so long.

Oh, you don't have to go it alone.
Oh, you don't have to go it alone, go it alone.

Run for your life my love,
Run and you don't give up,
With all that you are,
With all that you want.
Run for your life right now,
And if you don't know how,
I'll come back with you,
And take all that's true.
Leave all that's broke behind.
Run for your life.

Oh, you don't have to go it alone, go it alone, go it alone.

Run for your life my love,
Run and you don't give up,
With all that you are,
And all that you want.
Run for your life right now,
And if you don't know how,
I'll go back with you,
And take all that's true,
And leave all that's burned behind.

Just run for your life.
Run for your life.
