lyrics

Runway Lights ©Laforge/Randall

I’ve started to learn
Started to yearn
I’ve started on a solo flight
Hands in my pockets free as light
Walking tiptoes on the edge of life

Broken in two, in three, in five
Broken free like a runaway
Take the bit between the teeth
Keeping valentines out of sight

So now what am I going to do
If I go and fall in love with you
Now how am I going to let it be
If you go and fall in love with me

Got so much work to do
Standing tall in high-heeled boots
Cut my hair, get a tattoo
A rebel cause
Better late than never
Some consolation, some conversation
Who is that in my rear-view mirror
Heart beats up, wide eyed wonder
A little bit closer, closer, closer, closer

So now what am I going to do
If I go and fall in love with you
So how am I going to let it be
If you go and fall in love with me

Free and easy
Keep it light
I’m a dissident for independence
A poster girl for solitude
Don’t tell me about love’s devotion
Who am I kidding
Come a bit closer, whisper desire let’s take it higher
Kick the monkey off my back, tell me darling
Can you spend the night

So now what am I going to do
If I go and fall in love with you
So how am I going to let it be
If you go and fall in love with me (X 2)
