Lyrics

Blonde hair blowin' in the summer wind
A blue-eyed girl playin' in the sand
I'd been on her 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 tendency 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 lettin' 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 a 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
Oh we're caught up in the appeal baby, why you wanna hide it?
It's the last thing on my mind

(Why you wanna hide it?)
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 lettin' go!
Oh! oh! oh! oh! oh!
Ain't we all just runaways?
Yeah, runaways
Ain't we all just runaways?
Yeah
