I thought I had been every place a man could be
'Till I met a lady who brought me to my knees
The day I stop loving is the day that I die
But now I'm running from her game 'cause the lady is a lie

I've got a choice
Run away or be torn to shreds
I've got a life and I want to live
Don't want to be dead

I met her down in the underground
Got a taste of the low life, just creepin' around
I got what I came for and more, that's for sure
'Cause now I'm running from her game, can't take any more

I've got a choice
Run away or be torn to shreds
I've got a life and I want to live
Don't want to be dead

When I first met you, baby
I knew you could come on strong
But when you held a knife to me
You know, that just ain't too friendly
I've heard of liberated,
But that's so understated
I should have listened to them
When they told me you were crazy
And you said I was a runaway
