  • I could tie up the bed sheets and slide down the house
    Be gone before the morning comes
    I could dye my hair, I could change my name
    Leave it all behind, be free to run

    When I close my eyes I'm on the other side
    I'm like a hurricane along the track
    I see the landscape's wild from here inside my mind
    Beyond the walls which always hold me back

    It's just my imagination
    Running away
    Girls gotta have a little daydream
    It's a secret escape

    It's just my imagination
    Running away
    Don't worry baby
    I'm here to stay

    The noise of the city and the neon sky
    It will fade with the falling down
    And the quiet gets too close to me
    So won't you come and bring me around?

    Little slice of paradise in the back of my eyes
    I don't need it to be true
    'Cause we all seek shelter from the darker days
    And I know you go there too

    Pinch me to wake me, runaway daydreamer

    It's just my imagination
    Running away
    Girls gotta have a little daydream
    It's a secret escape

    It's just my imagination
    Running away
    Don't worry baby
    I'm here to stay

    Runaway, runaway
    Runaway, runaway
    Runaway, runaway

    It's just my imagination
    Running away
    Girls gotta have a little daydream
    It's a secret escape

    It's just my imagination
    Running away
    Don't worry baby
    I'm here to stay

    Don't worry baby
    I'm here to stay Writer/s: ED HARCOURT, SOPHIE ELLIS-BEXTOR
