prodigal lyrics – onerepublic

we say good-bye
i turn my back
run away, run away
so predictable
not far from here
you see me crack
like a bone, like a bone
i’m so breakable

and i take everything from you
but you’ll take anything
won’t you?

run away, run away
like a prodigal
don’t you wait for me
don’t you wait for me
so ashamed, so ashamed
but i need you so
and you wait for me
and you wait for me

i’m on the road
to who knows where?
look ahead, not behind
i keep saying
there’s no place to go
where you’re not there
on your rope, i hold tight
but it’s freeing

and i take everything from you
but you’ll take anything
won’t you?

run away, run away
like a prodigal
don’t you wait for me
don’t you wait for me
so ashamed, so ashamed
but i need you so
and you wait for me
and you wait for me

everybody wants to be right
but only if it’s not day light?
i keep trying to find my way back
my way back

run away, run away
like a prodigal
don’t you wait for me
don’t you wait for me
so ashamed, so ashamed
but i need you so
and you wait for me
and you wait for me

runaway
runaway
runaway
from you
from you
from you
