Toyah – Run Wild, Run Free lyrics

(Willcox / Bogen)

Well I sell my soul to Faust, each and every night for you,
Rip-roaring drunk, I peel my face away for you
It's a lonely time, I've walked from the limelight
Into an empty cobbled street
For you...

You've gotta live young, die young,
You gotta toughen up, run wild, run free.
Can't you see what they did to my god?

You're not going to do it to me,
I'm gonna run wild, run free.
Catch me if you can, but remember I'm a woman...

I'm genius, I'm smart, I'm impeccable.
I'm a warrior, I'm immaculate, I'm imperial.
I'm unique, I'm inscrutable, I'm gonna break free.
You steal my pennies, you steal my thoughts
I'm gonna break free!

You imprison me, you suffocate me,
I'm gonna break free!
I'm gonna cut you down,
I'll slit your throat before you touch me!
I'll get you back before your warm breaths dost touch me!
I'll slit your throat before your tall eyes do see me

Run wild, run free
Run wild, run free
Run wild, run free
Get away from me
Run wild, run free
Get away from me
Run wild, run free
Get free from me
Run wild, run free
Get free from me...
