"Running Back" as written by and Philip Parris Lynott....
I'm a fool now that it's over
Can you guess my name?
I make my money singing songs about you
It's my claim to fame

When they say it's over
It's not all over, there's still the pain

I'd come running
I'd come running back to you again
Oh I'd come running
I'd come running back to you again

If I said I was sorry
Would you still leave me?
I never thought you'd go 'till you did
Believe me

When they say it's over
It's not all over completely

'Cause I'd come running
I'd come running back to you again
Yes I'd come running
I'd come running back to you again

I miss that girl

The show is over
And we must all go home
Just leave me by myself
I'll be alright here on my own

If it's all over, it's all over
And I'm all alone

And I'd come running
I'd come running back to you again
Don't you know I'd come running
I'd come running back to you again

    General CommentI used to listen to this song and think about my wife before we were married. I love the guitar solo, even if it isn't all that complicated to play.

    There isn't really a deeper meaning to this song, but it's simplicity makes it one of the better songs on Jailbreak. It was supposed to be the first single from the album, which explains the slightly higher production quality.

    General CommentMy favorite part in this song is the "na na na na na na na na" towards the end.
