I Just Wanna Run

The Downtown Fiction

 

                   C#5           E5

I just wanna run, hide it away

                               B5            F#5

Run because they're chasing me down

                    C#5            E5

I just wanna run, throw it away

                            B5            F#5

Run before they're finding me out      I just wanna run

                   C#5

I just wanna run

                        E5

I'm out here all alone

                        B5

I try to call your house

                                  F#5

Can't reach you on the phone

                        C#5

I'll gather up the nerve

                            E5

I'm packing up my bag

                                B5

It's more than you deserve

                               F#5

Don't treat me like a drag

 

Pre-Chorus:

                        C#5

I'm feelin' like I keep on talking

 E5

I'm repeating

 B5                     F#5

Myself, my words lost all meaning

C#5

I keep talking

E5              B5     F#5

I repeat myself

 

Chorus:

                   C#5           E5

I just wanna run, hide it away

                                 B5        F#5

Run because they're chasing me down

                    C#5             E5

I just wanna run, throw it away

                           B5           F#5

Run before they're finding me out

                  A5 (2)

I just wanna run

              F#5 (2)

I just wanna run

 

                       C#5

Like a game of chess

                     E5

I predict your move

                           B5

I think I know you better

                       F#5

Better than you do

                           C#5

I'm sick of feeling cheap

                       E5

Cheated and abused

                     B5

Sick of losing sleep

                     F#5

Thinking about you
