run wild, run free lyrics – desperado

words & music: snider/torme

it stood in the meadow
wind blowin’ through it’s mane
cryin’ go, go, go, go and do it
he stares out the window
anger feeds his flame
cryin’ oh, oh, oh, i can’t lose it
but he asks no questions why
cause he knows it’s do or die
he got colder and tough
now he’s hard to the stuff
but he’s got to go and try
run wild, run free
on the road to nowhere
run wild, run free
from the pain and misery
run wild, run free
on the road to nowhere
no one’s gonna change your life
she stood in the doorway
tryin’ to change his mind
sayin’, “no, no, no don’t you do it.”
he walked through the doorway
she started to cry
he said, “oh, oh, oh don’t you lose it.”
but she asks no questions why
cause she knows it’s do or die
so she smiles and hangs tough
cause she’s hard to the stuff
she knows he’s got to try
(repeat chorus)
and they ask no questions why
cause they know it’s do or die
they got colder and tough
now they’re hard to the stuff
they know they got to try
(repeat chorus)
