"The highway jammed with broken heroes on a last chance power drive, Everybody's out on the run tonight, but theirs no place left to hid, together Wendy we'll live with sadness, I'll love you with all the madness in my soul, Someday girl I don't know when were gonna get to that place, Where we really want to go and well walk in the sun, But till then traps like us baby we were born to run, Oh honey tramps like us baby we were born to run, come on with me, tramps like us baby we were born to run."
the town is filled with broken dreams or promises, everyone is trying to get by, no matter what he wants to be with wendy, someday they will be together and have everything but till then they are going to try to find themselfs and get out of the town to be happy and free.
Hyperbole: "Baby this town rips the bones from your back"
Alliteration: "The highway jammed with broken heroes on a last chance power drive"
Tone: Runaways trying to find themselves one day and just living on the edge
Theme: trying to get Wendy to be with him while he finds himself in trying to live the american dream

Born to run meaning behind the song was betrayal, loss and defeat. Started as a love letter to Wendy, but he wasn't so patiently
