Run away run away John
Run away run away John
Evil’s coming for you
Run away run away John
And while it eats me I keep on breathing
And when it leaves me I still believe
I want to tell her she is kind
(kindness is only a shelter from under the rain)
I want to tell her of my life
(the time that you borrow is nothing without feeling pain)
I want to tell her she is good
(and when the animals love you they hold you up high)
I want to tell her I’m alright now
Run away run away John
