Life on the Run Lyrics
(VERSE 1)
She never knew my name... least not the one my daddy gave me
I took off the way I came... moonlight reflectin' off the road
She didn't want my story... so I didn't have to lie
If I loved her it was only for a night

(CHORUS)
Livin' life on the run... you can't give your heart to no one
Your only friend is the settin' sun I... didn't do what they said I done, I gotta
Stay one step ahead or one of these days I'm gonna wake up dead
Dropped in my tracks by a bullet from a lawman's gun
(1) Oh... you can't rest a minute when you're livin' life on the run
(2) No... you can't rest a minute when you're livin' life on the run
Here we go

(VERSE 2)
The white lines on the road... that's the only trail I leave behind me
Been chasin' high-line poles... ever since the night I skipped out of town
Mmm... somewhere in the distance... is where I need to be
All I care about right now is speed

(REPEAT CHORUS with line 2)

Here they come now, gotta lay low
Done bent the law 'til the law got broke
Here they come now, gotta lay low
Low... low... low... low...

Here they come now, they're closin' in
Pack of bloodhounds gonna catch my scent
Here they come now, now gone again
Yeah...

(OUTRO)
Livin' life on the run...
You can't give your heart to no one...
You can't rest a minute when you're livin' life on the run
No... you can't rest a minute when you're livin' life...... on the run
