Wanted dead or alive for a crime I couldn't commit
I've done worse in my life, of this I will admit
Nothing that I've done can be undone or taken away
Still I run from my life so I can live another day

So it may be true that I have killed the girl
I've committed no crime to god, no sin before the world
Drawn no blade, spilled no blood, I've taken no life away
So I run from my life so I can live another day

What did they expect me to do, did they want me to sit and wait?
To be put to the gallows and hang for hating what was my fate
There are many reasons to run and not a one to stay
Still I run from my life so I can live another day

Chasing me, the men tenacious, I die to save my life
Knowing of what came before, how I did draw the knife
Spilled the blood of my only love, I've taken my dreams away
So I run from my life so I can live another day

Deceiving the one who hurt the least
Betraying the one who cared the most

One day I'll stop and for my soul I will pray
But for now I run from my life so I can live another day
