Raindrops fall on the windowsill
They echo down the hall
I cling to the rhythm they sing
And lean against the wall

I would lie for you
No matter what you said
And I would die for you
I'd take a bullet to the chest

So don't run away my dear in the headlights
We can escape this permanent lowlife
And all I can say is I'm better when you're here
So don't run away my dear

Lightning cracks the twilit sky
And shakes me to the core
As the scent of you comes rushing in
I crumble to the floor

I would lie for you
No matter what you said
And I would die for you
I'd take a bullet to the chest

So don't run away my dear in the headlights
We can escape this permanent low life
And all I can say is I'm better when you're here
So don't run away my dear

We can hide in bed and get so high
On sex and cigarettes
That all our troubles seem to float away

We can fall asleep
And wake up at the center of our dreams
As real as you'll let them be

Don't run away my dear in the headlights
We can escape this permanent low life

Don't run away my dear in the headlights
We can escape this permanent low life
And all I can say is I'm better when you're here
So don't run away my dear

So don't run away
No don't run away
So don't run away my dear
No don't run away my dear
