Run Away

Mother said I'd never go
Drive on, drive on
She doesn't seem to realize
We'll all be dead someday anyway

Silent as the Earth that flows
Into the deep pool of the sky
Drive on, drive on
Time to say goodbye to this melodrama

Mother holds me in her arms
Blowing wishes over my shoulder
I see the moon and the moon sees me
Goodnight moon

Silent as the light that burns
From your fingertips to mine
Drive on, drive on
Death says live while you may, for I am coming

Run away with me tonight
Run away with me tonight
Everything will be alright
Run away with me tonight

We can leave it all behind
Pop the clutch and turn the key
Drive on, drive on
Run away with me
