Bon Jovi - Runaway

"Runaway" is a Bon Jovi song, written in 1980 and originally recorded in 1981 for the so called "Power Station Demos". The recordings were primarily done by an ensemble simply known as Jon Bongiovi & The Rest. Lead guitar on the original 1980's track was Bon Jovi's neighbour, Dave Sabo (a.k.a. The Snake), who would later form the group Skid Row. One night after a show, Richie Sambora found Bon Jovi backstage and told him that he should be the guitarist. Bon Jovi wrote him off and did not think much of it but told him to learn the material and show up for rehearsal. Sambora was early and knew the material and Bon Jovi was impressed; in that moment, Sambora became the band's lead guitarist and Bon Jovi was born.

Song Lyrics


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 You've Asked When's Your Daddy Gonna Talk To You
You Were Living In Another World Tryin' To Get Your Message Through

No One Heard A Single Word You Said
They Should Have Seen It In Your Eyes
What Was Going Around Your Heart

Chorus
Ooh She's A Little Runaway
Daddy's Girl Learned Fast
All Those Things He Couldn't Say
Ooh She's A Little Runaway

A Different Line Every Night Guaranteed To Blow Your Mind
See You Out On The Streets Call Me 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

Repeat Chorus

No One Heard A Single Word She Said
They Should Have Seen It In Your Eyes
What Was Going Around Your Heart

Ooh She's A Little Runaway
Daddy's Girl Learned Fast
All Those Things He Couldn't Say

Ooh She's A Little Runaway
Daddy's Girl Learned Fast
Now She Walks The Night Away

Ooh She's A Little Runaway
Daddy's Girl Learned Fast
All Those Things He Couldn't Say

Ooh She's A Little Runaway
Daddy's Girl Learned Fast
Now She Walks The Night Away
