Tonight you're letting go, under the burning glow
We're too young to hold this all on our own
All that came and went riding them by the winds
Blowing through the trees, she could feel it on her skin
Walking the lost streets, no one ever shares
Cry yourself to sleep, waiting on a little prayer
Bags are by the door, hearts are on the floor
There's a bottle of tears on the dresser drawer

Nobody knows the trouble we've seen
Nobody knows the price of this dream
And nobody knows what it took to believe
Nobody

She wants to be free, like a runaway, ay ay ay
Trying to believe, gonna find a way, ay ay ay ay
We got just one life, tonight we're running all the lights
Trying to break free, like a runaway ay ay ay ay ay

The road below our wheels, all that we fought to heal
You close your eyes and cry, dying for the right to feel
I hear it coming down, oh the sweetest sound
Of forgotten tears falling on the solid ground

Nobody knows the trouble we've seen
Nobody knows the price of this dream
And nobody knows what it took to believe
Nobody

She wants to be free, like a runaway ay ay ay
Trying to believe, gonna find a way ay ay ay ay
We got just one life, tonight we're running all the lights
Trying to break free, like a runaway ay ay ay ay ay

Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh

We're singing "How did we get this far riding on a shooting star? "
It's like flying on the wings of God

She wants to be free
Like a runaway ay ay ay
Trying to believe, gonna find a way ay ay ay ay
We got just on life, tonight we're running all the lights
Trying to break free, like a runaway ay ay ay ay ay
