lyrics

If I told you what I do, baby I’d feel so ashamed.
It’s too hard telling you the truth just to have things remain the same. But what the hell? I made my vow, it’s a risk I gotta take.
Gotta break it down, gotta get it out, before they come take me away.

Away oh, ey oh
Baby, run, run, run, run, we gotta run real far away.
And ey oh, oh ey oh
They’re gonna come, come, come, come, come take me today.

You always been real good to me, you give me all your love.
But when your daddy gave me the key, it wasn’t you he was proud of.
He said, “I should have known a long time ago, you got your hand in the wrong glove.”
He saw me turning low, room filled with smoke, put a bullet through him and go.

Away oh, ey oh
Baby, run, run, run, run, we gotta run real far away
And ey oh, oh ey oh
They’re gonna come, come, come, come, come take me today.

It’s hard to say goodbye and to identify where we should draw the line and save all of our love.
I know I told you lies but it ain’t one this time. This is my alibi. Oh...

Oo baby... Ow... ooo yeah.

Away oh, ey oh
Baby, run, run, run, run, we gotta run real far away
And ey oh, oh ey oh
They’re gonna come, come, come, come, come take me today.
