Libertines – For Lovers lyrics

I'm running away with you,
That's all I ever do,
And that's all we ever mean,
But I forgive you everything...

Meet me at the railroad bar,
About seven o'clock,
We talk while the sun goes down,
Watch the lovers leaving town...

(Chorus) This is for lovers, running away
This is for lovers running away, just for today

I'm running away with you,
From yesterdays news,
Lets leave it all behind,
Help me back to my mind..

Your the jailer, rattling the key,
But the key was mine,
I keep a spare one everytime

Repeat chorus to end...

This is for lovers,
Running Away....
In the jail o
