lyrics

She lived in a trailer
With five younger brothers
They played all day in the yard
They weren't city folk
They slept beneath the stars

He lived in a mansion
Just his toys and his servants
Took for granted things shed never afford
5th Ave
A lullaby of horns

Yet they spoke of running away to Spain
Reading books only lovers
Could ever explain
It's not forbidden
But we always said it was

They traveled the country
Just asellin his stories
played guitar blew the harp sang the blues
Every night on stage he'd sing his songs for you
Everynight he came a bit closer to the truth

Still they spoke of running away to Spain
Reading books only lovers
Could ever explain
It's not forbidden
But we always said it was

The days they got longer
They got so much harder
He did what any daddy would do
Hung his guitar up
Said "son my time is you"

Your mother she loves you
You know that she ought to
Lets go visit get at the fair
Tonight we'll sleep beneath the stars
Tell me all you dare

So you say you wanna runaway to Spain
Reading books only lovers
Could ever explain
It's not forbidden
But we can pretend it always will be
