A song about an impossible love. Written n 2002 /  2003 in Munich, revised several times until it found its final version in 2019 in Tignale (Italy).

When you’re lonely tonight
call my name
When you’re in trouble tonight
maybe I feel the same

When you’re stirred up in the dark
and can’t get no sleep
with a heavy heart
like a sack full of bricks

Oh oh oh
What do you think?
Oh oh oh

We’re gonna walk down tonight
to the clubs
We’re gonna dance ourselves
out of the muck

Psychology’s dead
it’s lost in the flood
Philosophy’s hidden tracks
are overdubbed

Oh oh oh
What do you think?
Oh oh oh

Runaway dream
Runaway dream
You can see only what you believe in
We’re gonna walk this road together
We’re gonna run until we see
What this life has left for us
in a runaway dream
a runaway dream

Well they say there’s relief and redemption
in a river red and deep
And they say that once you’ve been fallen into it
you can learn to swim but you’ll never leave

Well they say there are good and bad times
and that there’s more than passing away
And there’s a need for you and me
to search for our luck through night and day

Oh oh oh
What do you think?
Oh oh oh

Runaway dream
Runaway dream
You can find only what you believe in
We’re gonna break these ties together
We’re gonna run until we see
What this life has left for us
in a runaway dream
a runaway dream
a runaway dream

And deep in the city’s darkest recess
two hearts beat as one
to warm up, to hold on to
what soon will be gone

Down that road
that you walk alone
feeling like a child
without a home

A full tank of gas
and guitars of steel
can make your sweetest dream come true
or two hearts bleed
in a runaway dream

Just a runaway dream
Just a runaway dream

We’re gonna rock this world together
We’re gonna run until we see
What this life has left for us
in a runaway dream
a runaway dream
a runaway dream
