"Never" as written by Ann Wilson, Nancy Lamoureaux Wilson, Holly Knight and Walter Block....
Hey baby I'm talking to you
Stop yourself and listen
Some things you can never choose
Even if you try yeah
You're bangin' your head again
Cause somebody won't let you in
One chance, one love
Your chance to let me know

We can't go on
Just running away
If we stay any longer
We will surely never get away
Anything you want, we can make it happen
Stand up and turn around
Never let them shoot us down
Never, never
Never, never run away

Hey baby you know it's true
Why you bother lying when you know
That you want it too
Don't you dare deny me
Walk those legs right over here
Give me what I'm dying for
One chance, one love
Hold me down never let me go

We can't go on
Just running away
If we wait any longer
We will surely never get away
Anything you want, we can make it happen
Stand up and turn around
Never let them shoot us down
Never, never
Never, never run away
Never, never
Never, never run away

Hey baby I'm talking to you
Stop yourself and listen
Some things you can never choose
Even if you try yeah
You're bangin' your head again
Cause somebody won't let you in
One chance, one love
Your chance to let me know

We can't go on
Just running away
If we stay any longer
We will surely never get away

Oh oh never
Oh oh never

We can't go on never
We can't go on never

Oh oh never
Oh oh never

We can't go on never
We can't go on never

    General Commenti am interested in what others have to say about it as well. i loooove this song. I can't figure it out. First she says...we can't go on running away...then she says, if we don't run away we may be stuck forever. obviously she's for them...

    General Commentthis is my favorite heart song. i was a lil girl when it came out and i hadnt heard it in a long time. a few days ago i heard it again and i got goose bumps. i love heart, those girls are awesome musicians.

    i think this song is about a guy who is reluctant to get into a rel'p but the girl is very into him. and she is trying to convince him that they are good together.

    "We can't go on
    Just running away
    If we stay any longer
    We will surely never get away"

    to me it also seems like she is saying its futile to keep running away cuz they will end up together.

    this song is perfect for any couple who arent sure if they should be together cuz other ppl dont like them together. "never let them shoot us down" instead of worrying about what others think they should just enjoy each other.

    General CommentI feel like this is a song about a girl who maybe works or is in close contact with a guy who isn't currently into her but has just had some problems withi his current girl, and the work (per say) is really into him and is basically saying take a chance with her....

    General CommentI think it's about two people having an affair, and the guy is unsure if he wants to leave his wife/girlfriend for this woman. the "running away" is them hiding and having the affair, and she wants him to really commit to a real relationship.

    General CommentCertain verses of this song do not apply, such as the 2nd, but to me this song is about the chorus..."We can't go on, just running away, if we stay any longer, we will surely never get away"

    ...it's about knowing that if you want someone in your life, you're offering them this one last chance to let you know, because you know what they've been doing, for quite some time, and you've willingly played along, only because it was coming from THEM, and them alone. A tapestry of guised imperfections, intrigue and eroded trust and deluded self respect. Too deep an insight here lol but hey that's what it means to me. Congrats on the baby, I love you. Have a good life. We can't go on...never xo
