Run Away Lyrics

She was just an average blue-eyed golden high school dream
An illusion nothing real could ever touch
Funny love seemed so much more intense at seventeen
When I knew she'd never love me half as much

I recall the desperate vow I made
I must find a way somehow to win her heart
I've got to make her mine

Gonna run away till I prove that I'm a man
Gonna run away, be the best I know I can
Got to run away, got to find my space and time
And I cannot rest a day until I make her mine

Trades were made for promises of a timeless memory
And I knew but still refused to comprehend
The fantasy more glamorous then she could ever be
Was the course of least resistance in the end

I recall the desperate vow I made
I must find a way somehow to win her heart
I've got to make her mine

Gonna run away till I prove that I'm a man
Gonna run away, be the best I know I can
Got to run away, got to find my space and time
And I cannot rest a day until I make her mine

Long ago an innocence lived deep within my soul
In a yesterday where love and dreams remain
But disillusion clouds my eyes and the winter takes it's toll
For the spring has gone and will not come again

I recall the desperate vow I made
I must find a way somehow to win her heart
I've got to make her mine

Gonna run away till I prove that I'm a man
Gonna run away, be the best I know I can
Got to run away, got to find my space and time
And I cannot rest a day until I make her mine

Got to run away
Got to find my space and time
And I cannot rest a day until I make her mine
