Run

By Pamela Sue Perry

w/m copyright 6/26/10

Musical intro

Capo 2nd fret


v

You said, “I love you.”

I said, “I love you too.”

That is what I pretended to hear,

pretended to hear, pretended to hear,

pretended to hear.

v

But I played with paper dolls

when I was a girl.

I would cut them out,

dress them up,

 I had my own world.

v

In my youth

I could run like the wind.

I was faster than all the boys

they couldn’t catch me then.

v

Time has slowed me down,

Now, there is only one thing,

one thing for me to do.

c

I better run.

Run like the wind.

If I’m going to catch the boys

I have to run. Umm, umm.

Run like the wind.

v

You put ideas in my head.

All your words filled me with hope

I believed what you said.

v

Paper dolls never hurt me then.

Each story I told had to end.

You broke my heart

And I can’t let it go

There is only one thing you need to know.

c

Run. You better run.

Run like the wind.

Don’t look back boy

Don’t look over your shoulder.

You better run. Umm, umm.

Run like the wind.

v

I made you into

more than what was there

I breathed life into paper-thin air

v

But I played with paper dolls

when I was a girl.

I would cut them out,

dress them up.

I had my own world.

Now there is only one thing,

only one thing for me to do.

c

I have to run.

Run like the wind.

You broke my heart.

You better run.

Don’t look back boy.

Run like the wind.

Umm, umm. Umm, umm.
