"Pirate on the Run" as written by Pat Monahan and Brandon Jackson Bush....
She woke up in a town made of quick sand
Gets harder to move everyday she stays
He woke up in the same hotel he always does
Just different numbers on the doors

Maybe they'll meet
Maybe they wont
Maybe they love each other and...
Maybe they don't
Shes a gypsy
Hes a pirate on the run

Her eyes they know too much
She'll treat ya like somebody but you just cant touch
His smile ain't seen the light of day

Exchanged it for some treasures somewhere along the way
Maybe the stars will align so they can sail on together
Maybe he'll steal her life

And she'll take his heart
And his favorite sweater
Shes a gypsy
Hes a pirate on the run

Ooh yes, They finally did meet
and let me tell ya

We Love the first and last kind of love
I was perfect for her soul
I was perfect for his heart
and together we are perfect apart

Back when it was only you and me
Baby we were gonna be fine
all then reality makes ya that you never be mine

I'm a gypsy
hes a pirate on the run
Shes a gypsy
And I'm a pirate on the run

    General CommentFantastic song, and I'm so glad he decided to make it a duet. The meaning is simple (I think); A gypsy, and a pirate on the run. They love each other but he's always got to go. Maybe it's like being on tour, and never staying in one place for your 'gypsy'.

    I originally thought that they were saying
    'In reality, nature let you never be mine'
    but now I can hear what they are saying.
