lyrics

I’ve been running for weeks
All the people started watching for me out on the streets
I’ve been working my feet
they’ve been treating me like some sort of celebrity

run for your lives
there’s no time for having fun
I’ve been running for my life
since it was 1981
Hey! You might feel a burn
at the bottom of your thighs
but that won’t be a bother
‘cuz we’re running for our lives

I’ve been creating a buzz
this must be what it feels like to be a cheetah on drugs
I’ve been sweating it out
All the people want to know what I’m all about

run for your lives
there’s no time for having fun
I’ve been running for my life
since it was 1981
Hey! You might feel a burn
at the bottom of your thighs
but that won’t be a bother
‘cuz we’re running for our lives

I'm running
I'm running
I'm running
I can't stop
(X2)

I’ve been labelled a mess
I don’t care because there’s nobody that I must impress
I’ve been caring much less
and that’s okay because I wasn’t destined for success

run for your lives
there’s no time for having fun
I’ve been running for my life
since it was 1981
Hey! You might feel a burn
at the bottom of your thighs
but that won’t be a bother
‘cuz we’re running for our lives

I'm running
I'm running
I'm running
I can't stop
(X4)
