Just running scared, each place we go
So afraid, that he might show

Yeah, running scared, what would I do
If he came back and wanted you?

Just running scared, feeling low
Running scared that you love him so

Just running scared, afraid to lose
If he came back, which one would you choose?

And then all at once, he was standing there
So sure of himself, his head in the air
While my heart was breaking, which one would it be?
Then you turned round and walked right out on me

    General CommentI heard the Roy Orbison version on the radio recently - it ends with the words "...walked away with me", so naughty Nick has changed the meaning right round. And made it a much better song.
