song title:Runaways
date: 1992-11-00
lyrics: 

Verse 1:
A lone man stands in the lonely sands
'neath the risisng desert moon.
A runaway from all he knows,
he's searching for Fenario.
This road leads on, behind it's gone,
he can't turn round, he can't be found,
this time he's gone for good.

Chorus:
Mama I'm really going to do it now.
Put down your burden, mama,
papa drop your plough.
This time I'll make you proud,
I'll make you change your mind.
I'll show you all what I can do this time.
I'll show you all what I can do this time.

Verse 2:
Sleep comes slow to our friend, you know,
beneath the setting moon
dreams of lands and times long past
from first to blessed last
runaway's from other days
his familiar face is in the place
his face is yours and mine
he'll show you what he can do this time
I'll show you all what I can do this time.

We'll show you all what I can do this time.
We'll show you all what I can do this time.
We'll show you all what I can do this time.
We'll show you all what I can do this time.
