"Running From Home" as written by and Bert Jansch....
Runnin', runnin' from home
Breakin' ties that you'd grown
Catchin' dreams from the clouds


The city sounds burn your soul
Turn your head to the cries
Of loneliness in the night


Just like a fly when it's caught
The spider soon takes it's prey
Spins a dance round your heart


Give me your beauty and age
A pleasure pleasing my mind
Your heart will shatter and fall


Step on pavements so old
Cast a glance at the young
Girls a making their way


The passing image of you
Reflects a pain to my heart
And disappears in a crowd


Runnin', runnin' from home
Breakin' ties that you'd grown
Catchin' dreams from the clouds
