In the day we sweat it out on the streets of a runaway American dream 
At night we ride through the mansions of glory in suicide machines
 Sprung from cages out on highway nine,
 Chrome wheeled, fuel injected,and steppin' out over the line
H-Oh, Baby this town rips the bones from your back
It's a death trap, it's a suicide rap
We gotta get out while we're young 
`Cause tramps like us, baby we were born to run

Yes, girl we were

 Wendy let me in I wanna be your friend 
I want to guard your dreams and visions 
Just wrap your legs 'round these velvet rims
And strap your hands 'cross my engines  Together we could break this trap
We'll run till we drop, baby we'll never go back
H-Oh, Will you walk with me out on the wire
`Cause baby I'm just a scared and lonely rider
But I gotta know how it feels 
I want to know if love is wild
Babe I want to know if love is real

Oh, can you show me

 Beyond the Palace hemi-powered drones scream down the boulevard  Girls comb their hair in rearview mirrors
And the boys try to look so hard
The amusement park rises bold and stark 
Kids are huddled on the beach in a mist
I wanna die with you Wendy on the street tonight
In an everlasting kiss

One, two, three, four!

The highway's jammed with broken heroes on a last chance power drive 
Everybody's out on the run tonight 
But there's no place left to hide
 Together Wendy we can live with the sadness 
I'll love you with all the madness in my soul
H-Oh, Someday girl I don't know when
We're gonna get to that place  Where we really wanna go
And we'll walk in the sun
But till then tramps like us
Baby we were born to run

Oh honey, tramps like us
Baby we were born to run

Come on with me, tramps like us
Baby we were born to run
