Mojave Rain

Runaways

Blonde hair blowing in the summer wind
A blue eyed girl playing in the sand
I'd been on a trail for a little while
But that was the night that she broke down and held my hand

A teenage rush
She said "Ain't we all just runaways?"
We got time but that ain't much
We can't wait 'til 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 got the tendancy to slip when the nights get wild

It's in my blood
She said she might just runaway
Somewhere else, someplace good
We can't wait 'til 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 held you
I wasn't letting go

We used to look at the stars and confess our dreams
Hold each other 'til the morning light
We used to laugh now we only fight
Baby are you lonesome now

At night I come home after they go to sleep
Like a stumbling ghost I haunt these halls
There's a picture of us on our wedding day
I recognize the girl but I can't settle in these walls

We can't wait 'til tomorrow

No we're caught up in the appeal
Baby why you wanna hide it
It's the last thing 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 held you
I wasn't letting go

(Ain't we all just runaways)
Yeah, runaways
(Ain't we all just runaways)
Yeah
