I was born on the Eastern Sea Bar
But I grew up way out west
On the edge of the ocean
On the edge of the world
Was a good boy to my mother
Was a bad one sometimes too
I was followed by my brother
In 1952

Well Charlie'd been my uncle
I'd always thought by blood
But dad, he said that blood was thin
And he'd lost his brother's trust
That's when he lost his will to live
I guess we weren't enough
Sometimes it's wrong to forgive
But mom, she wasn't tough

Oh...

Women, they get lonely
Or at least that's what I'm told
My mother missed her husband
And she couldn't leave us home
So now we're all in heaven
And it's alright, y'know
I wish I had some friends here
Cos heaven's kinda slow

Send my friends up to heaven,
Please I need them so
Send my friends up to heaven
Just to be my friends

Send my friends up to heaven,
Please I need them so
Send my friends up to heaven
Just to be my friends

Oh...

I keep running away
I keep running
I keep running
I keep running
I keep running
I keep running
I keep running away
