About Luanne

"Luanne" was the fifth and final single taken from the album 4 by the band Foreigner, and the second to feature a B-side that was not available on one of their albums, a controversial live version of their hit, "Hot Blooded". The song was written by Lou Gramm & Mick Jones and reached number 75 in the U. S. charts (meager, considering the band's other successful singles) where the album, 4 had already gone to number 1, eventually selling more than six-times platinum, but was a live staple for years to come. The live version of "Hot Blooded" was later placed on the international release of their retrospective, Records, but in subsequent re-releases has been dropped in favour of the original album version due to a couple of choice words spoken in ad lib during the song's performance by its singer, Lou Gramm. Rolling Stone Magazine contributor Kurt Loder felt the song sounded like it could have been written by John Fogerty.

Luanne, Luanne
Why do you run and hide?
Luanne, Luanne
Don't keep your love inside

I wait around for you after school
You slip away and I don't see you
Don't know what I'm gonna do
If you can't see how much I need you
We met one day and then you ran away
I've searched the whole town looking for you
I know you're there somewhere

Luanne, Luanne
Why do you run and hide?
Luanne, Luanne
Don't keep your love inside

I write letters that I never send
I keep the words to whisper to you someday
I don't know where and I don't know when
Luanne, I'm gonna get to you someway
I want to feel your love so close to me
Give me just half a chance
To prove myself, I need to

Luanne, Luanne
Why do you run and hide?
Luanne, Luanne
Don't keep your love inside

These days true love is so hard to find
Someday I know you're gonna be mine
Luanne, Luanne, Luanne, oh

Luanne, Luanne
Why do you run and hide?
Luanne, Luanne
Don't keep your love inside

Luanne, Luanne
Don't need to run and hide
Luanne, Luanne
Don't keep your love inside

Luanne, Luanne
I wanna be beside you, can't you understand?
Luanne, Luanne
Give me a little love, I know you can
Luanne, hey Luanne
Can't you hear me calling?
Luanne
