Runaways

RUNAWAYS

Oh sweet Maria
Cries at the airport gate
The man she loves deserted her
She wonders now her fate
He worked so hard to win her heart
But when the work was done
He runs away, he runs away, he runs

Shy filipina
With a one way ticket homeward
Left at the LAX
By a man who swore he loved her
He worked so hard to win her heart
But when the game was won
He runs away, he runs away, he runs

You gave it all you could
How were you to know
The wound in time will be understood
It’s time to go

Fly sweet Maria
Though your soul is shaking
The man who betrayed you
Is not worth your heart breaking
So run away, run away
Your innocence still shining
Another day, Another day, will come
Run....
