  • Uh
    Yeah, yeah

    When I was young, I fell in love
    We used to hold hands, man, that was enough (yeah)
    Then we grew up, started to touch
    Used to kiss underneath the light on the back of the bus (yeah)
    Oh no, your daddy didn't like me much
    And he didn't believe me when I said you were the one
    Oh, every day she found a way out of the window to sneak out late

    She used to meet me on the Eastside
    In the city where the sun don't set
    And every day you know that we ride
    Through the backstreets of a blue Corvette
    Baby, you know I just wanna leave tonight
    We can go anywhere we want
    Drive down to the coast, jump in the seat
    Just take my hand and come with me

    We can do anything if we put our minds to it
    Take your whole life then you put a line through it
    My love is yours if you're willing to take it
    Give me your heart 'cause I ain't gonna break it
    So come away, starting today
    Start a new life, together in a different place
    We know that love is how these ideas came to be
    So baby, run away with me

    Seventeen and we got a dream to have a family
    A house and everything in between
    And then, oh, suddenly we turned twenty-three
    Now we got pressure for taking our life more seriously
    We got our dead-end jobs and got bills to pay
    Have old friends and know our enemies
    Now I-, I'm thinking back to when I was young
    Back to the day when I was falling in love

    He used to meet me on the Eastside
    In the city where the sun don't set
    And every day you know where we ride
    Through the backstreets in a blue Corvette
    And baby, you know I just wanna leave tonight
    We can go anywhere we want
    Drive down to the coast, jump in the seat
    Just take my hand and come with me
    Singing

    We can do anything if we put our minds to it
    Take your whole life then you put a line through it
    My love is yours if you're willing to take it
    Give me your heart 'cause I ain't gonna break it
    So come away, starting today
    Start a new life, together in a different place
    We know that love is how these ideas came to be
    So baby, run away with me

    Run away, now
    Run away, now
    Run away, now
    Run away, now
    Run away, now
    Run away, now

    He used to meet me on the Eastside
    She used to meet me on the Eastside
    He used to meet me on the Eastside
    She used to meet me on the Eastside
    In the city where the sun don't set
