Sixpence None The Richer – On The Run lyrics

Music & Lyrics by : Jeff Lynne
Originally performed by E.L.O. [The Electric Light Orchestra]

Whatever I do, wherever I go
The same afterglow
Is keepin' me low
Don't wanna lose it
But don't wanna stay here too long

They see you go by
I tell you no lie
You're up in the sky
Make everyone cry
Don't wanna lose it
But don't wanna stay around here

Chorus
I'm on the run again
I'm on the run again
But it's like what they say
When it happens this way
You gotta do it again and again

I hear them talkin' and they go on and on
They think that nothing is wrong
And so they just carry on about you
Don't wanna lose it
But I gotta move out of here

I see them waiting there for most of the day
I known you asked them to stay
But they just won't go away
Don't wanna lose it
But I gotta do it again

Chorus

Bridge
I know it ain't real
But when you are near
You're saying the things
That I wanna hear
Don't wanna lose it
But I gotta do it again

Chorus
