Born to Run BY jacob morrow

In the day we sweat it out on the streets of a runaway American dream

-we fight on but our dreams run away faster than we can chase them

At night we ride through the mansions of glory in suicide machines

-we drive around on our bikes or in our cars

Sprung from cages out on highway nine,

-let loose from the grip of society out on the highway

Chrome wheeled, fuel injected, and steppin' out over the line

-*describes vehicle* getting out of the town

H-Oh, Baby this town rips the bones from your back

-its bad to stick around, it'll get you nowhere

It's a death trap, it's a suicide rap

-nothing good would come if you chose to stay

We gotta get out while we're young

-there's still time, we have to go

`Cause tramps like us, baby we were born to run

-people like us were born to be free

Wendy let me in I wanna be your friend

-please don't let me be lonely on this journey

I want to guard your dreams and visions

-I want to protect you

Just wrap your legs 'round these velvet rims

-get on and hold tight

And strap your hands 'cross my engines

-*see previous line*

Together we could break this trap

-the two of us could get out of here and be just fine

We'll run till we drop, baby we'll never go back

-anywhere but here

H-Oh, Will you walk with me out on the wire

-will you stay with me no matter where we go

`Cause baby I'm just a scared and lonely rider

-I'm scared and lonesome

But I gotta know how it feels

-I'm curious what love is like

I want to know if love is wild

-*see previous line*

Babe I want to know if love is real

-*see previous line*

Beyond the Palace hemi-powered drones scream down the boulevard

-outside our house, cars "scream" down the street

Girls comb their hair in rearview mirrors

And the boys try to look so hard

-they try to impress the girls

The amusement park rises bold and stark

Kids are huddled on the beach in a mist

I wanna die with you Wendy on the street tonight

In an everlasting kiss

The highway's jammed with broken heroes on a last chance power drive

-everywhere you look, old vets looking for some more glory

Everybody's out on the run tonight

-everyone wants to break free

But there's no place left to hide

-they have nowhere to go

Together Wendy we can live with the sadness

-the two of us can make it

I'll love you with all the madness in my soul

H-Oh, Someday girl I don't know when

We're gonna get to that place

Where we really wanna go

And we'll walk in the sun

But till then tramps like us

-until we make our dreams come true...

Baby we were born to run
