runaway john lyrics – 54-40

runaway, runaway john
runaway, runaway john
evil’s coming for you
runaway, runaway john

and while it eats me
i keep on breathing
and when it leaves me
i still believe

i want to tell her she is kind
(kindness is only a shelter from under the rain)
i want to tell her of my life
(the time that you borrow is nothing without feeling pain)

i want to tell her she is good
(and when the animals love you they hold you up high)
i want to tell her i’m alright now

runaway, runaway john
(runaway, runaway john)
runaway, runaway john
(runaway, runaway john)

runaway, runaway john
(runaway, runaway john)
runaway, runaway john
(runaway)
