Running Away
by Bob Marley



Ya running and ya running
And ya running away
Ya running and ya running
And ya running away
Ya running and ya running
And ya running away
Ya running and ya running,
But ya can't run away from yourself
Can't run away from yourself [Repeat: x5]

Ya must have done (must have done)
Somet'in' wrong (something wrong)
Said ya must have done (must have done)
Wo! Somet'in' wrong (something wrong)
Why you can't find the
Place where you belong?
Do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do (running away) [Repeat: x5]

Every man thinketh his
Burden is the heaviest (heaviest)
Every man thinketh his
Burden is the heaviest (heaviest)
Ya still mean it: Who feels it knows it, Lord
Who feels it knows it, Lord [Repeat: x3]

Ya running and ya running
And ya running away
Ya running and ya running
And ya running away
Ya running and ya running
And ya running away
Ya running and ya running
But ya can't run away from yourself
Could ya run away from yourself?
Can you run away from yourself?
Can't run away from yourself!
Can't run away from yourself!
Yeah-eah-eah-eah - from yourself

You must have done somethin'
Somethin' somethin' somethin'
Somethin' ya don't want nobody to know about
Ya must have, Lord, somethin' wrong,
What ya must have done - ya must have done somethin' wrong
Why you can't find where you belong?

Well, well, well, well, ya running away, heh, no
Ya running away, ooh, no, no, no,
I'm not (running away), no, don't say that - don't say that,
Cause (running away) I'm not running away, ooh! (running away)
I've got to protect my life, (running away)
And I don't want to live with no strife. (running away)
It is better to live on the housetop (running away)
Than to live in a house full of confusion. (running away)
So, I made my decision and I left ya; (running away)
Now you comin' to tell me (running away)
That I'm runnin' away. (running away)
But it's not true, (running away)
I am not runnin' away. (running away)
