Eric Carmen - Run Away Lyrics




She was just an average blue-eyed
Golden high school dream
An illusion nothing real could ever touch
Funny love seemed so much more intense
At seventeen
When I knew she'd never love me
Half as much

I recall the desperate vow I made
I must find a way somehow to win her heart
I've got to make her mine

Gonna run away
Till I prove that I'm a man
Gonna run away
Be the best I know I can
Got to run away
Got to find my space and time
And I cannot rest a day until I make her mine

Trades were made for promises
Of a timeless memory
And I knew but still refused to comprehend
The fantasy more glamorous
Then she could ever be
Was the course of least resistance
In the end

I recall the desperate vow I made
I must find a way somehow to win her heart
I've got to make her mine

Gonna run away
Till I prove that I'm a man
Gonna run away
Be the best I know I can
Got to run away
Got to find my space and time
And I cannot rest a day until I make her mine

Long ago an innocence
Lived deep within my soul
In a yesterday where love
And dreams remain
But disillusion clouds my eyes
And the winter takes it's toll
For the spring has gone
And will not come again

I recall the desperate vow I made
I must find a way somehow to win her heart
I've got to make her mine

Gonna run away
Till I prove that I'm a man
Gonna run away
Be the best I know I can
Got to run away
Got to find my space and time
And I cannot rest a day until I make her mine

Got to run away
Got to find my space and time
And I cannot rest a day until I make her mine

Eric Carmen Run Away Comments
  1. PATRICK STEINER

    What an excellent album. I'm going to get it. I've liked Eric Carmen since the early seventies with The Raspberries!

  2. Don Guthridge

    This is the best song Eric ever recorded

  3. Randy Inghram

    In 1978 I made a slide show presentation of this song for my photography class. I photographed a friend who I had get up really early after partying Saturday night and sprayed water in his eyes to get the crying effect. He was in a dream of the girl Eric mentions.....his past. Later in the week I photographed "the girl" part in a white "angelic" dress. The two models in reality never met, but I pulled off the torment of a man who can never realize his love for an elusive woman.
