Lyrics

RUNAWAY

I was a boy on a mountain top;
the noon gun rang all clear
Sipping rice wine from a frying pan,
somewhere on the frontier

That was then, this is now
I can’t pretend I don’t know how

I said goodbye in the market place,
I headed south towards the dens
I paid a pittance for a dream or two;
I thought this dream would never end

And you may think I’m telling lies
Boy’s own adventure of a runaway child

Runaway, runaway, still running away from you
Runaway, runaway, still running away from you

Rogues deceive you, in the money bazaar
Like a smile upon a pretty face
Don’t entertain sadness when she calls,
In your mind’s eye
In your mind’s eye
