[Intro]
I tell you I can visualise it all
Too real it all seems
But once again, runnin’ away with me
Once again‚ runnin’ away with me
This couldn’t be a dream
Runnin’ away with me
Runnin’ away with me

[Verse 1]
And I stop myself for a minute
See if my heart’s still in it
Say a few things just to win it
Funny how it works out‚ innit?

[Pre-Chorus]
And I told her‚ “Some things have their time
How can I be yours if you’re not mine?”
She said, “They should take this pain
And give it a name”

[Chorus]
Tonight, I wish I was your boy
(Run away from me‚ run away from me)
I (Run away from me, run away from me)
Tonight, I think I f***d it royally
(Run away from me‚ run away from me)
(Run away from me, run away from me)

[Verse 2]
Give yourself a new name
Change your voice on the train
Have her complain about your fame
Tell me that it’s all a rigged game

[Pre-Chorus]
She told me, “Some things just take time
How can you be sure if you won’t try?”
She said, “I guess I’ll take this pain
Instead of your name”

[Chorus]
Tonight, I wish I was your boy
(Run away from me, run away from me)
I (Run away from me, run away from me)
Tonight, I think I f**ed it royally
(Run away from me, run away from me)
(Run away from me, run away from me)

[Bridge]
And it’s been replaying on my mind
Unfortunately, I’ve been to this place in my life
Far too many times
Sunday’s nearly over, so I’ll just lie awake
Tonight, I wish I was your boy, I
Tonight, I think I f**ed it royally

[Chorus]
And tonight, I wish I was your boy
(Run away from me, run away from me)
I (Run away from me, run away from me, runnin’ away with me)
Tonight, I think I f**ed it royally
(Run away from me, run away from me)
(Run away from me, run away from me, runnin’ away with me)

[Outro]
Runnin’ away with me
Runnin’ away with me
