Kate Ryan - Runaway (Smalltown Boy) Lyrics

You leave in the morning with everything you own
In a little black case
Alone on a platform, the wind and the rain
On a sad lonely face

Mother will never understand
Why you had to leave
For the answers you seek will never be found at home

Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away
Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away

Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away
Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away

Pushed around and kicked around, always a lonely boy
You were the one that they’d talk about around town
As they put you down

And as hard as they would try to hurt to make you cry
But you’d never cry to them, just to your soul

Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away
Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away

Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away
Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away

Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away
Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away

Run away

Kate Ryan Runaway (Smalltown Boy) Comments
  1. Weghweh Hwewehwhe

    It's an ok cover - but the original song makes a LOT more sense, if only to the reference to the gay community, but also because of the time. Makes a big difference if the song is in the 1980s or the 2010s (or past 2005 at the least).

  2. Sweeper1890

    Still, the original made by Bronski Beat is still the best.

    Nice work +Embassy One and +Kate Ryan

  25. Karsten E. Brennan

    Very good cover and very nice clip!

  26. irisheyes4you

    Just wondering what the video has to do with the song?  Where's the small Town boy, lonely boy.  It's a great song and version, but the video has nothing to do with the song.  If it was a 'Small town Girl"  I'm sure there wouldn't be a video with just boys in It, now would there?

  28. Mitch Weiner

    Yes, the original is better. But, this is a pretty solid cover.

  29. John Somerville

    I'm afraid it's not the same as the original but to call it runaway is not on it is SMALLTOWN BOY and the icon song is 31 years old yes give Kate her due nice try at a dance version but nothing more the kid bro has that voice that lifts this so good his penned song I have heard better remixes so a thumbs down from me ....

  30. omar azam

  31. Tfugygu Rydjg

    bon chonson

  32. osbely

    Original is way better.

  33. upfrontbear74

    I wish everyone would stop having a go at her, we know it not as good as the original, but take it for what it is, a homage to the original, and I like it.


    It is better than the original....

  34. John Baries

    maybe good at singing but you fucked that song up

  35. David Tong

    It has a nice dance beat to it.

  36. Clarissa Ramirez

  39. theuncanspan

    no matter who covers this it's still amazing because the original was so beautiful

  40. Wonderful Life

    Moim zdaniem wersja Kate jest lepsza od orginalu;) kocham jej piosenki

  41. thegadfly2

    Tragedia, laska od coverów kaszani nieśmiertelny kawałek Bronski Beat... Kate Ryan nie umie śpiewać na żywo... Tylko playback..

  46. Enmanuel Torres Rodriguez

    Hit <3 kate <3

  47. Uwe Hempel

    the poor origin

  48. andiamo24

    so can someone tell me why is she singing a song about a gay boy who has his coming out? this is THE comming out song of the 80th. so what the hell is kate ryan doing? she always sang songs from other people. but with this song she was over the line. the meaning and soul of this song is totally gone when she is singing. she never ever can catch the original.


    She's a gay icon...Duh!


    And are you saying that she doesn't have to sing a "gay" song cause it's bad? Just saying, Kate Ryan's music is gay! I know she can be a Milf, but her songs are gay.


    And she made like 20 covers


    And it's not her first song talking about sexual orientation


    And it's normal that the song does not sound like the original, do you know the word "Originality"??? That's like, a fucking good thing!
