Runaway Lyrics

I've known it for a long time
Daddy wakes up to a drink at nine
Disappearing all night
I don’t wanna know where he's been lying
I know what I wanna do
Wanna run away, run away with you
Gonna grab clothes, six in the morning, go

How long you leaving?
Well, dad just don’t expect me back this evening
Oh it could take a bit of time to heal this
It’s been a long day, thumb on side of the roadway, but

I love him from my skin to my bones
But I don’t wanna live in his home
There’s nothing to say 'cause he knows
I’ll just run away and be on my own (own) I’ve never seen my dad cry
Cold as stone in the kitchen light
I'll tell you it's about time
But I was raised to keep quiet
This is what I’m gonna do
Gonna run away, gonna make that move
Gonna grab clothes and when it’s morning, go

How long you leaving?
Well, dad just don’t expect me back this evening
Oh it could take a bit of time to heal this
It’s been a long day, thumb on side of the roadway, but

I love him from my skin to my bones
But I don’t wanna live in his home
There’s nothing to say 'cause he knows
I’ll just run away and be on my own (own)

Backpack and a flat cap turned to the back
As I packed my clothes up
My dad wasn’t down with that plan to attack, intends to show love
I don’t wanna live this way
Gonna take my things and go, but
If things change in a matter of days
I could be persuaded to hold on
Mama was the same
None of us are saints, I guess that God knows that
I don’t wanna run away
And one of these days I might just show that
Put my home in a suitcase, tie both shoe laces, and hope that
Things change, but for now I'll leave town with a backpack on my shoulder

I love him from my skin to my bones
But I don’t wanna live in his home
There’s nothing to say 'cause he knows
I’ll just run away and be on my own (own)

Runaway Meanings & Interpretations

So deeply true song, saddening but beautiful at the same time. Many times it occurs that people leave home in a rush because of the attitude of their family, or they even form their own family just to escape from their parents. Lack of communication and affection, formative years full of bad memories while we grow up can cause only pain and trouble in forming our unique path to happiness.
