Runaway Lyrics

[Verse 1: Jon Bon Jovi]
On the street where you live girls talk about their social lives
They're made of lipstick, plastic and paint, a touch of sable in their eyes (All your life)
All your life all you've asked when's your daddy gonna talk to you
But you was living in another world trying to get your message through

[Pre-Chorus: Jon Bon Jovi]
No one heard a single word you said
They should have seen it in your eyes
What was going around your head

[Chorus: Jon Bon Jovi]
Oh, she's a little runaway
Daddy's girl learned fast
All those things she couldn't say
Oh, she's a little runaway

[Verse 2: Jon Bon Jovi]
Take a line every night guaranteed to blow your mind
I see you out on the streets, calling for a wild time
So you sit home alone cause there's nothing left that you can do
There's only pictures hung in the shadows left there to look at you
You know she likes the lights at nights on the neon Broadway signs
She don't really mind, it's only love she hoped to find

[Chorus: Jon Bon Jovi]
Oh, she's a little runaway
Daddy's girl learned fast
All those things she couldn't say
Oh, she's a little runaway

[Pre-Chorus: Jon Bon Jovi]
No one heard a single word you said
They should have seen it in your eyes
What was going around your head

[Chorus: Jon Bon Jovi]
Oh, she's a little runaway
Daddy's girl learned fast
All those things she couldn't say
Oh, she's a little runaway
Daddy’s girl learned fast
Now she works the night away
Oh, she's a little runaway
Daddy's girl learned fast
All those things she couldn't say
Oh, she's a little runaway
Daddy’s girl learned fast
Now she works the night away
Oh, she's a little runaway
