“Runaway Girl”*

Come back my girl, don’t run away.

You’re taking my heart with you,

I’ll be left astray…

That smile, those eyes,

Forever burned into my mind.

Please return to me, be kind and rewind.

I still need you, now more than ever,

You thought you were clever

That day when you released the lever.

Pulled the world from under my feet,

Unlike you, I didn’t run…

Instead I accepted the taste of bitter defeat.
