Ooh there's no place that you can go
You think you can run but I don't know
Ooh where you're gonna go
You think you can run but
I don't know

They don't wanna hear about it
What's going on in your head
Don't you even care about it
You'll be somewhere else instead
You don't even talk about it
What's going on in the street
You don't spare a single thought about it
When the world is at your feet

Ooh there's no place that you can go
You think you can run but I don't know
Ooh where you're gonna go
You think you can run but
I don't know

You make me wanna shout about it
I'll tell you how I feel
There can't be any doubt about it
I know that this is real
Can't make myself forget about it
The way you seem to do
There's only one regret about it
I can't get through to you

Ooh there's no place that you can go
You think you can run but I don't know
Ooh where you're gonna go
You think you can run but
I don't know

Don't really wanna think about it
I can't fuck wearing my
By not doing what we ought about it
Things just stay the same
Always knew you were mad about it
Don't think Christ ain't too
But now I'm feeling sad about it
Nothing I can do

Ooh there's no place that you can go
You think you can run but I don't know
Ooh where you're gonna go
You think you can run but
I don't know

You think you can run but I don't know

    General CommentThis song is about and sung to Joe Strummer. It's Mick Jones reflecting back on his time with The Clash.
    At the start of the 3rd verse (just as the vocal gets the heavy FX) the "Ooh" is clearly replaced by "Joe".
    "You think you can run" is a reference to Joe Strummers running marathon's + disapearances (as well as a metaphor for him trying to escape from various issues).
    It's an angry song but it's also full of regret "There's only one regret I can't get through to you".
