Far Away From Home

Album: #willpower (2013)
  • She comes from a small town,
    She went and stoled her mama's car
    Crazy baby
    She says she gonna make it far outta town,
    She wanna be a superstar right now.

    She says she gonna go to Hollywood
    She wanna be on movie screens,
    Pretty baby
    She made it on that magazine, top down
    She ain't the only one,
    This happens all the time and it goes on and on and on.

    Let's go far away from home,
    Ride on a rocket
    Burn down the boulevard, burning it up.
    Let's go far away from home,
    Ride on a rocket
    Burn down the boulevard, burning it up.

    I wanna run away from home,
    I don't wanna think about it,
    Run baby, run, I don't wanna think about it.
    Run away from home,
    I don't wanna think about it,
    Burn down the boulevard, burning it up.

    He's a boy from the ghetto,
    He wanna buy his mom a house
    Her little baby
    Is trying to move her up that town
    He's got a job
    He's selling drugs, but she don't know
    His momma's proud.
    He said he's going to move to Hollywood,
    Up on a hill next to Denzel
    Sister know now
    She's mad as hell, but she won't tell mama
    He ain't the only one
    this happens all the time
    And it goes on and on and on.

    Let's go far away from home,
    Ride on a rocket
    Burn down the boulevard, burning it up.
    Let's go far away from home,
    Ride on a rocket
    Burn down the boulevard, burning it up.

    I wanna run away from home,
    I don't wanna think about it,
    Run baby, run, I don't wanna think about it.
    Run away from home,
    I don't wanna think about it,
    Burn down the boulevard, burning it up.

    Ride on a rocket ship
    Ride on a rocket ship (Burnin' it up)
    Ride on a rocket ship (Burnin' it up)
    Ride on a rocket ship

    Let's go, let's go, let's go, let's go
    Let's go, let's go, let's go, let's go

    Let's go far away from home,
    Ride on a rocket
    Burn down the boulevard, burning it up.
    Let's go far away from home,
    Ride on a rocket
    Burn down the boulevard, burning it up.

    I wanna run away from home,
    I don't wanna think about it,
    Run baby, run, I don't wanna think about it.
    Run away from home,
    I don't wanna think about it,
    Burn down the boulevard, burning it up.

    Let's go far away from home,
    Ride on a rocket
    Burn down the boulevard, burning it up.
    Let's go far away from home,
    Ride on a rocket
    Burn down the boulevard, burning it up.

    I wanna run away from home,
    I don't wanna think about it,
    Run baby, run, I don't wanna think about it.
    Run away from home,
    I don't wanna think about it,
    Burn down the boulevard, burning it up. Writer/s: Henry Walter, Lukasz Gottwald, William Adams
