The Runaways Little Lost Girls

I can’t stand it

I got to break lose somehow

When this boat starts rockin’

And people keep knockin’ on my door

I want to run run run run away from here

I want to run run run run away from here

I want to run away from here

Little lost girls

Little lost girls in the night

Little lost girls

Little lost girls in the night

You make my heart sting

Burning like it’s on fire

You’ve got me wanting

More from you in every way

I want to run run run run away from here

I want to run run run run away from here

I want to run away from here

Little lost girls

Little lost girls in the night

Little lost girls

Little lost girls in the night

When I see you each day

I just want to run and hide

But you follow me round

Like like a shadow upon the ground

I want to run run run run away from here

I want to run run run run away from here

I want to run away from here

Little lost girls

Little lost girls in the night

Little lost girls

Little lost girls in the night

The Runaways Secrets

We speak in codes and no one knows

Cause we’re living a double life

Kept inside our love dreams hide

Cause we’re living a double life

Secrets

We’re got dreams

Mysteries

And crazy schemes

Secrets

We’ve got dreams

Secrets

Can’t be seen

Out on the street the shadows meet

Cause we’re living a double life

We can’t tell it fits so well

Thats we’re living a double life

Secrets

We’re got dreams

Mysteries

And crazy schemes

Secrets

We’ve got dreams

Secrets

Can’t be seen

Shhh… someone’s coming

Shhh… be quiet

If we get caught

Just deny it

The Runaways Heartbeat

Thousands cheered as you appeared

The band was playing

We drove away that Saturday

I wanted you knew where you were staying

Backstage lied about my age

Didn’t care that you were older

Stop look listen to my heartbeat

Stop look listen to my heartbeat

Here you are a superstar

But I sing and play in my own way

You got your fans and I got mine

But I need your love that’s the bottom line

I sing lead and so do you

Get together what will we do?

Stop look listen to my heartbeat

Stop look listen to my heartbeat

Danced all night till the room was light

You said goodbye I wondered why

Radio played you couldn’t stay

You’d miss your plane in the morning rain

Here I am in the limousine

Once again the lonely queen

Stop look listen to my heartbeat

Stop look listen to my heartbeat

The Runaways My Buddy And Me

My buddy and me don’t want to be like the rest so don’t make us

My buddy and me we’re so crazy no one can take us

We take everything we do in stride

We won’t conform society don’t take our side

My buddy and me don’t care what you think you can shove it

My buddy and me have to be on our own and that’s final

Don’t try to stick us in no mold

Cause we won’t fit, no matter what we’re told

We wanna be alone

We won’t get down on our knees

And neither should you

Leave us alone

We won’t get down on our knees

And neither should you

My buddy and me we say it’s do or die we believe it

My buddy and me we’re made of good stuff won’t take shit

We gotta do what we feel is best

We think you’re confused we’re not like the rest

We wanna be alone

We won’t get down on our knees

And neither should you

Leave us alone

We won’t get down on our knees

And neither should you

My buddy and me don’t want to be like the rest so don’t make us

My buddy and me we’re so crazy no one can take us

We take everything we do in stride

We won’t conform society don’t take our side

We wanna be alone

We won’t get down on our knees

And neither should you

Leave us alone

We won’t get down on our knees

And neither should you

The Runaways Midnight Music

Out here in the smokey places

Looking into those empty faces

Short wave says we made the dial

I’m wired for ten million miles

Making midnight music

Singing rock and roll songs

Living midnight music

Just to get along

Back here in this cold hotel

I’m bored but you can tell

Your smile said we did OK

I’m glad we had a chance to play

Making midnight music

Singing rock and roll songs

Living midnight music

Just to get along

From the plane I see the back roads

Your twilight cities your super towns

From the stage I see the drifters

Lost souls who ain’t been found

Out there in the five buck seats

We live inside your own heartbeats

We share the falls you take

Everything feels like it’s just bout to break

Making midnight music

Singing rock and roll songs

Living midnight music

Just to get along

The Runaways You’re Too Possessive

Let me out of your iron grip

I don’t want your lover’s tips

I don’t need your interrogations

Don’t ask me ’bout my other relations

You’re too possessive for me

So leave me alone

Get off my back, go on home

You’re too possessive for me

So get out of my life

Get off my back, I ain’t your wife

I come in late an’ you throw a fit

You sit me down and give me some lip

Well I don’t have to waste my time

A wimp like you ain’t worth a dime

You’re too possessive for me

So leave me alone

Get off my back, go on home

You’re too possessive for me

So get out of my life

Get off my back, I ain’t your wife

No way, baby

Go away an’ don’t come back

I don’t want my mirror cracked

Go and find somebody new

Got no time to mess with you

You’re too possessive for me

So leave me alone

Get off my back, go on home

You’re too possessive for me

So get out of my life

Get off my back, I ain’t your wife

No way, baby
