Last Runaway

  • The morning glory poured down on me
    Stars were in my eyes
    Desperate, a babe in teens
    I was scared to death of what I'd find of

    On borrowed beds of nails I wailed and I'd lose control
    So shamelessly, so starved to be
    Down this orphan's road

    If time runs away tomorrow
    There's nowhere left to hide
    To the promised land, the roads I ran
    But nowhere left to ride

    The last runaway tonight has come home
    And I'm running from the night, oh, from where I roamed
    It was the best days of our lives now
    The world was ours to run
    The last rumaway tonight
    The last runaway's alive, I'm coming home

    The price of pride bled down on me
    And ransomed my soul
    A broken boulevard of dreams, like misfits and their broken toys
    A runaway, a slave in chains, I'd lose control
    So painlessly, so hard to see
    Down this beggar's road

    If time runs away tomorrow
    There's nowhere left to hide
    To the promised land, the roads I ran
    But nowhere left to ride

    The last runaway tonight has come home
    And I'm running from the night, oh, from where I roamed
    It was the best days of our lives now
    The world was ours to run
    The last rumaway tonight, I'm coming home

    In the land of lost and make believe we shiver from the cold
    Lay down my head, and hear no voices, my face so bold
    Turned my back and feared redemption, like a thief I stole
    Escape this place erase my shadow
    Don't wanna lose my soul

    And help me Lord to make it
    This weight's too great to lift my soul no more
    Just one last chance to change it
    Give me back the life I can't wait to live
    Na-na-na, ooh, na-na-na
    Ooh, na-na-na, ooh, na-na-na
    Ooh, na-na-na, ooh, na-na-na
    Ooh, na-na-na, ooh, na-na-na

    The last runaway tonight has come home
    And I'm running from the night, oh, from where I roamed
    It was the best days of our lives now
    The world was ours to run
    The last rumaway tonight, I'm coming home Writer/s: STEVE EDWARD DUREN
