Ed Sheeran – Runaway lyrics
I've known it for a long time
Daddy wakes up to a drink at night
Disappearing all night
I don't wanna know where he's been lying
I know what I wanna do
I wanna runaway runaway with you
Gonna grab clothes, six, in the morning, go
How long could you leaving?
Well dad just don't expect me back
This evening
Oh it could take a bit of time to heal this
It's been a long day almost out of the roadway
But I love him from the skin to my bones
But I don't wanna live in this home
There's nothing to say'cause he knows
I'll just runaway and be on my own

I've never seen my dad cry
Cold as stone, in the kitchen light
I tell you it's about time
But I was raised to keep quiet
And this is what I'm gonna do
Gonna runaway, gonna make that move
Gonna grab clothes, and when it's morning, go

How long you leaving?
Well dad just don't expect me back, this evening
Oh it could take a bit of time to heal this
It's been a long day
Almost out of the roadway
But I love him from the skin to my bones
But I don't wanna live in this home
There's nothing to say 'cause he knows
I'll just runaway and be on my own

Back pack, and a flat cap
Turned to the back
Cause I packed my clothes up
My dad wasn't down with that plan to attack, intends to show love
I don't wanna live this way
Gonna take my things and go
If things change in a matter of days
Could be persuaded to hold up
And mama was the same
None of us are saints
To guess that god knows that
I don't wanna runaway
And one of these days I might just show that
Put my home in a suitcase
I wrote showlaces, and hold that
Things change, but for now
I leave town with a backpack on my shoulder

But I love him from the skin to my bones
But I don't wanna live in home
There's nothing to say and he knows
I'll just runaway and be on my own
