Too Long Now the Runaway


(Hazen)


Her windowsills were tragic, but her eyes were paradise
She kept a diary by her bedside that she had talked to all her life
A fairy tale, a teenage dream, some silly bridal tale
A record of all that angst and pain good girls give great detail


Like when temptation came - she came back again
It was more of the same - it was worse than before
Too long now the runaway, too long now the runaway
You're too long now the runaway, so long now the runaway


She had a funny cousin, she had first met when she was eight
And look now, how long has it been? - Did his humor turn to hate?
It didn't really matter then as much as it does now
'Cos someone yelled, "Hey, doctor." It'll take her anyhow


Like when temptation came - she came back again
It was more of the same - it was worse than before
Too long now the runaway, too long now the runaway
You're too long now the runaway, so long now the runaway


You waited too long, now you can't make amends
You should have never doubted my love, it was more than pretend
But I'm so sorry now, I can't make sense of all this
I can't find the memory we deserve of our final kiss


Like when temptation came - I came back again
And it was more of the same - but much worse than before
Too long now the runaway, too long now the run away
Too long now the runaway, so long now the runaway


Now the choruses are crowded with some wasted worthless rhymes
To demonstrate my lack of words to fill these vacant lines
Was it pain or passion? - Did she push her luck too much?
Having never had the pleasure - will she feel that one last touch?


Like when temptation came - she came back again
It was more of the same - but it was worse than before
Too long now the runaway, too long now the runaway
It's too late now to run away, so long now the runaway


Like when temptation came - I came back again
And it was more of the same, but much worse than before
Too long now the runaway, too long now for the runaway
Yesterday...love was such an easy game to play...
Oh, I believe in yesterday
