THE LYRICS:
Carly can’t wait for the band to start
Strip is shining
The desert’s quiet and dark
Ten minutes til the bandit preys
He’s in a hotel
Watching the bands play

And I hear run – go ahead and run
First it sounds like fireworks
But someone’s got a gun
And I hear run
Go ahead and run
Can’t win even thousands against one

Juan and Drew a great romance
The night is shining
The crowd begins to dance
Ten minutes ’til the bandit comes
He’s in the parking lot
Tapping to the drums

And I hear run – go ahead and run
First it sounds like fireworks
But someone’s got a gun
Then I hear run
Go ahead and run
Can’t win even thousands against one

Tired of being strong
I just want to feel safe
Take the toys away
Still you’ve got the hate
I said Orlando strong and Vegas strong
I just want to feel safe
How’d you send your kids to school today?

We sat in a park – all us frightened people
In a circle and we’re holding hands
We held each other all us frightened people
God almighty tell me will it stop?
I can’t throw a punch how could I hold a gun?
Tell me tell me tell me will it stop?
I can’t throw a punch how could I hold a gun?
