Killers — Runaways lyrics

Blonde hair blowing in the summer wind

A blue eyed girl playing in the sand

I've been on a trail for a little while

But that was the night that she broke down and held my hand

Teenage rush, she said, ain't we all just runaways

We got time

But that ain't much



We can't wait till tomorrow

You gotta know that this is real baby

Why you wanna fight it

 It's the one thing you can choose
Oh!



 We got engaged on a friday night

 I swore on the head of our unborn child

That I could take care of the three of us

 But I have the tendency to slip when the night's still wild

 It's in my blood

She said she might just runaway somewhere else

 Someplace good



We can't wait till tomorrow

You gotta know that this is real baby

Why you wanna fight it

It's the one thing you can choose



Let's take a chance baby we can't lose

Ain't we all just runaways

 I knew it when I met you

 I'm not gonna let you

Runaway

I knew it when I had you
 I wasn't letting go



We used to look at the stars and confess our dreams

Hold each other till the morning light

 We used to laugh now we only fight

 Baby are you lonesome now



And then I come after they go to sleep
Like a stumbling ghost, I'll haunt this halls

There's a picture of us on our wedding day

I recognize the girl but I can't settle in this walls



We can't wait till tomorrow

 Now we're caught up in the appeal baby why you wanna hide it

 It's the last day on my mind

 I turn the engine over and my body just comes alive


 Ain't we all just runaways

 I knew it when I met you

 I'm not gonna let you
 Runaway

 I knew it when I had you

I wasn't letting go
