  • "WE CAN'T RUN AWAY"
  • (Guy Thomas / Arlene Matza) 1982              Here's an old demo I wrote with my long time                                                                                                friend, Arlene.  We teach an extension class in                                                                                                songwriting every summer at UCLA and I just noticed it's 10:10                                                                        pm on 10/10/10 my father's birthday........too weird                                                                                    
  • Like a bullet
  • Out of a gun
  • Too quick too see
  • Too fast to outrun
  • The smoke clears
  • And again we stand tonight
  • To face our fears
  • Until we get it right
  •  
  • Oh we can't run away
  • We can't run away from love
  • No we can't run away this time
  • For I have seen this race
  • Where the blind lead the blind
  • We can't run away from love this time
  • No
  •  
  • Shadows fall
  • Across our lives
  • Danger calls
  • And there's no time to decide
  • If it's right or wrong
  • Cause we might lose our way
  • And the chance is gone
  • If we hesitate
  •  
  • No we can't run away
  • Can't run away from love
  • No we can't run away this time
  • For I have seen this race
  • Where the blind lead the blind
  • We can't run away from love this time
  •  
  • Oh you know our luck's not the same now
  • As it was when we were young
  • We could fly and never lose our direction
  • And through it all
  • We'd some how end up
  • Finding our way home
  •  
  • Oh we can't run away
  • We can't run away from love
  • No we can't run away this time
  • For I have seen this race
  • Where the blind lead the blind
  • We can't run away from love this time
  • No
  •  
  • We can't, we can't run
  • We can't keep runnin'
  • We can't, we can't run
  • We just can't keep runnin'
  • We can't, we can't run
  • We can't keep runnin'
  • We can't, we can't run
  • We can't keep runnin'……………..
