On The Run (Live At The Empire Pool, Wembley, London 1974) [2011 - Remaster] - Lyrics

a why did i do it, a why did i do it
i asked myself a hundred times and then i start to cry
its up to my neck now im runnin like a dog
i can't remember how it started
but its too late to turn back the clock
i gotta keep on and on and on and on

oh my hearts prayin for a heart attack
im gonna collapse a but i better not
I'll get a few years for the things I've done
ill never see the sunrise no more what the hell
i gotta keep on
fighting for my sanity and for family
and for my baby oh for my baby
bullshit aside yea i knew how to play the game right
but this time i made a mistake and im gonna pay the price
id rather be payin to the grim reaper
than the law keeper

im runnin im runnin im runnin out of time
to late to waste time in haste
i fell to my knees to pray for your god
but your god wasnt there for me
so i prayed to myself
for long life and stamina

i do believe i was startin to lose my nerve and my mind
i heard a little voice screamin if you do the crime you will send for the time
if you do the crime you must render the time
if you do the crime you must render the time

bullsh*t i wont bow down to that
a belly of a priest wont have its name on a slip no
i gotta keep on movin and groovin
i gotta keep on movin and groovin
i gotta keep my mind clear
for the devils and the demons i will not fear
(the devils and demons i will not fear)

im on the run
10 more minutes and im gone
im on the run
10 more minutes and im gone
(repeat)
