I’ve always wanted to run away, just get in the car and go.
Forget my obligations, pack up the kid, and run with the flow.
Throw the suitcase in the rear, a drawing pad and a snack.
Not knowing where I’m going or even if I’m coming back.
But let’s be real, it’ll never happen. Somewhere along the way
I grew up, became responsible. I must resign myself to stay.
Raise the kid, pay the bills, live a life in captivity.
Face the drudgery of a lonely life until I reach maturity.
But who knows, one day in the distant future, once I’ve met my obligations, yay!
You will wake up and find me missing-
I’ve always wanted to run away!
