Arlene and Adam

      I’m running away with you
      That’s all I ever do
      That’s all we ever mean.
      I forgive you
      Everything.

      Meet me at the Railroad Bar
      About seven o’clock
      We talk til the sun goes down
      Watch the lovers
      Leaving town.

      This is for lovers running away
      This is for lovers running away
      Just for today.

      I’m running away with you
      From yesterday’s news
      Let’s leave it all behind.
      Help me back to my mind
      I’ve paid the penalty
      You’re the jailer rattling the key
      But the key is mine
      I keep a spare one every time.

      This is for lovers running away
      This is for lovers running away
      Just for today.
