China Wall
Lyrics
8 cups of coffee at this roadside diner
Got me ready to roll in my road liner
Run run running from a distant thunder
Running from the storm that we were under.

There's a wall as big as the great wall of China built up around me
There's a road and it's taking me away from the love that can set me free.

She was my lover but you are my friend
For her my heart broke, for you it could mend
You know I never meant to hurt you by getting too close
Yea I never meant to leave you until I saw her ghost.

There's a wall as big as the great wall of China built up around me
There's a road and it's taking me away from the love that can set me free. Oh!

So I'm doing a little roadwork
Trying to clear my head
Of the memory of us
And where our dreams led
Got my engine wound up
And I'm running out of town
Another runaway heart going round and round.

There's a wall as big as the great wall of China built up around me
There's a road and it's taking me away from the love that can set me free.
Oh, Oh!
