Charted: 56
  • I tell you I can visualize it all
    Too real it all seems
    But once again
    Runnin' away with me
    But once again
    Runnin' away with me
    This couldn't be a dream
    Runnin' away with me
    Runnin' away with me

    And I stop myself for a minute
    See if my heart's still in it
    Say a few things just to win it
    Funny how it works out, innit?
    And I told her, "Some things have their time
    How can I be yours if you're not mine?"
    She said, "They should take this pain
    And give it a name"

    Tonight, I wish I was your boy
    (Run away from me, run away from me) I
    (Run away from me, run away from me)
    Tonight (tonight), I think I fucked it royally
    (Run away from me, run away from me)
    (Run away from me, run away from me)

    Give yourself a new name
    Change your voice on the train
    Have a complain about your fame
    Tell me that it's all a rigged game
    And she told me, "Some things just take time
    How can you be sure if you won't try?"
    She said, "I guess I'll take this pain
    Instead of your name"

    Tonight, I wish I was your boy
    (Run away from me, run away from me) I
    (Run away from me, run away from me)
    Tonight (tonight), I think I fucked it royally
    (Run away from me, run away from me)
    (Run away from me, run away from me)

    And it's been playing on my mind
    Unfortunately, I've been to this place in my life
    Far too many times
    Sunday's nearly over so I'll just lie awake

    Tonight, I wish I was your boy
    I
    Tonight, I think I fucked it royally

    And tonight, I wish I was your boy
    (Run away from me, run away from me) I
    (Run away from me, run away from me)
    Tonight (tonight), I think I fucked it royally
    (Run away from me, run away from me)
    (Run away from me, run away from me) Writer/s: George Bedford Daniel, Matthew Timothy Healy, Ross Stewart MacDonald, Adam Brian Thomas Hann
