RUN HIGH LYRICS

VERSE 1
She opens the door to his flat but he isn’t here
All he’s left is a chair and some fishing gear
He never mentioned making plans of heading anywhere
He’s definitely gone it makes her wonder did he ever care?
Everybody said they’d never met a better pair
On the dancefloor Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire
She’s ripping out her hair loyalty is very rare
Staring down a steep set of stairs to the devils lair
Why would he disappear? wasn’t their mission clear
She was happy to raise the kids and he would be an engineer
I guess the best thing to do is learn a lesson here
Never trust anybody even after seven years
It was very weird she found herself in a time and a place she could face her fears
Graced with a face full of tears time to start the pursuit yeah it is what it is
What it is what it is

CHORUS

He’s a highway man on the road to nowhere
Slow down you don’t want to go there
Run highway man run run run
run she’s got your number
And when it’s all said and done
your running up the barrel of a gun
Run highway man run
Pulling up and picking up the pieces defeats the purpose
run highway man run

VERSE 2

Can you read body language
Or do you need to see blood on a fang tip
The predator is out on the prowl
Everybody down
Ain’t no place you can hide from a lurker
How you gonna hide your face? Burka
Ostrich head in a hole
You can only go backwards mole Twerker
How you gonna win a foot race with a cheater
Balls on the table golden retriever
Nice to meet ya wouldn’t wanna be ya
Leave it to Beaver we got a bleeder
Laying on a bed in regret all he said
Was he wished he could forget that day
But he better remember that a black widow kills her mate when she gets her way
And she always gets her way

CHORUS

He’s a highway man on the road to nowhere
Slow down you don’t want to go there
Run highway man run run run
run she’s got your number
And when it’s all said and done
your running up the barrel of a gun
Run highway man run
Pulling up and picking up the pieces defeats the purpose
run highway man run

BRIDGE

Yeah it is what it is it is what it is
And she always gets her way
Yeah it is what it is it is what it is
And she always gets her way
Yeah it is what it is it is what it is
And she always gets her way
Yeah it is what it is it is what it is
And she always gets her way

Running to the future running from the past
Running through the alleyways running through the park
Running from the light running to the dark
You keep on running away
Running to the future running from the past
Running through the alleyways running through the park
Running from the light running to the dark
You keep on running away

CHORUS

He’s a highway man on the road to nowhere
Slow down you don’t want to go there
Run highway man run run run
run she’s got your number
And when it’s all said and done
your running up the barrel of a gun
Run highway man run
Pulling up and picking up the pieces defeats the purpose
run highway man run

OUTRO

Yeah it is what it is it is what it is
And she always gets her way
Yeah it is what it is it is what it is
And she always gets her way
Yeah it is what it is it is what it is
And she always gets her way
Yeah it is what it is it is what it is
And she always gets her way
