(-I don't think I can have another day of this!
Why don't we run away somwhere?
- Where?
- I don't know. Paris? Buenos aires? New York?)

I could fly to Kingston tonight
I'd act like everything alright
I run away to Milan for a while
Maybe visit San Siro and keep a low profile

I can run but I can't hide
It's all inside
I can run but I can't hide
It's all inside

Could pack my bags for Amsterdam
Make tulips turn a part of my masterplan
Maybe in Chamonix I'll find peace of mind
Simply cruising down the hills in the sunshine

Now I know that New York is where a boy can have some fun
If I only could change where I came from

I can run but I can't hide
It's all inside
I can run but I can't hide
It's all inside

(- Why don't we get away somewhere?
- Where?)

Belo Horizonte seems nice
If you're looking for a way to preserve some light
I'll go back to Nice for a while
To provide some nice calmness for my inner child

Now I know that New York is where a boy can have some fun
If I only could change where I came from

Maybe maybe I just gotta take the days one by one
If I only could change where I came from

I can run but I can't hide
It's all inside
I can run but I can't hide
It's all inside

    General CommentI believe the ??? in the 2nd verse is:

    Maybe in Chamonix, I'll find piece of mind.

    Yes?

    General CommentThe first lines are from the BBC series Brideshead Revisited, a dialouge between Charles and Sebastian. FYI!
