Run for Your Life

He said that he loves you, he’ll never let you get away
It’s the way that he loves you, he’ll do anything to make you stay
Some love leaves you glowing, some love leaves you sad
But what kind of love can make you hurt so bad
You’d better run for your life, your boyfriend wants you back

He begged you not to go, he says you are his heart attack
You saw him reach out for you, then all you saw was black
I hear he brought roses, sweet apologies
Then why was it you who ended up on her knees
You’d better run for your life, your boyfriend wants you back

Lovers get angry, lovers act like fools
Lovers don’t get rough when the lovin’ cools
He was thrilling, exciting, a hint of danger too
Fireworks are thrilling till they blow up on you

You made a mistake, leaving three months ago
You should have left sooner, the first time he struck a blow
You might have escaped with the first black eye
Now he says, See you later, each time you say goodbye
You’d better run for your life, your boyfriend wants you back
