"Runaway" as written by Yasmin Shahmir, Devlin,, Darren Lewis and Iyiola / Babalola....
I've seen the world, been to many places
Made lots of friends, many different races
I've had such fun around the world it's true
African skies with a Nairobi mood, ooh
I fell asleep in Tuscany and dreamed
The one thing missing was you

Runaway with me my love
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Runaway with me my love
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I woke up with an Australian breeze
And danced the dance with Aborigines
Oh under the moon glow down in Mexico I dreamed
One thing was missing that's you

Runaway with me my love
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Runaway with me my love
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

We'll sail the waters of many colours
We won't need a compass, love will guide our way
Don't need nobody, as long as we got each other
No need to hurry, we've got everyday
I wanna share the world with you, you see
Spring time in Paris feels so good to me
Oh this is for me reality
So please make all my wishes come true

Runaway with me my love,
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

And I just know we'll have a good time, ooh
And I just know we'll have a good time, ah
And I just know we'll have a good time
And I just know we'll have a good time
And I just know we'll have a good time
And I just know we'll have a good time, yeah

    General CommentWhen I was 5 I saw the ad for Design of a Decade featuring this song on tv and I asked mother to buy it for me (to be my very first CD). That Christmas however, I received "janet." instead. I forgot all about it til recently, when I rediscovered this song and realised that janet. was probably the better album anyway.
