lyrics

Crimson in the maples, blackbirds in a tree
I won't bother them birds, if they won't bother me
There's runnin' away and there's runnin' away
and gettin' nowhere
Mother Tender told me, you gotta' stand your ground
Ain't no use to lookin' good, if no one is around
There's runnin' away and there's runnin' away
and gettin' nowhere
There's runnin' away and there's runnin' away
and gettin' nowhere
Drivin' in your car, smells like your lies
Your Billy Holiday, my weepin' eyes
There's runnin' away and there's runnin' away
and gettin' nowhere
Cigarettes in your ash try, you don't even smoke
I need a drink, god help me - all the bottles are broke
There's runnin' away and there's runnin' away
and gettin' nowhere
There's runnin' away and there's runnin' away
and gettin' nowhere
Settle down she told me, put that thing down
This unhappy ending -- doesn't make a sound
There's runnin' away and there's runnin' away
and gettin' nowhere
Crimson in the maples, blackbirds in a tree
I won't bother them birds, if they won't bother me
There's runnin' away and there's runnin' away
and gettin' nowhere
I'm runnin' away - they're flyin' away
Neither of us free -- neither of us free...
