about

Jangling power pop with sparkling harmonies, which is why the song is so named. It's really "Run Away With Me", but what the H?

lyrics

If I was to show up on your doorstep
With a duffle bag of dirty laundry
Would you still answer your door bell, or drop
A bucket of cold water over me?
I'm not trying to put you on the spot
But idle speculation is all that I got, oh baby
Run away with me (run away), Run away with me (run away)
I got nervous shakes and anxiety quakes
From adult responsibilities
Makes me wanna vanish right into the ozone
Ride the rails like it's 1933
No debates, you know I hate 'em
Or issuing no ultimatum
Chorus
I don't wanna live in this world no more
With the IRS and NSA and credit scores
Let's go back to where we had it before
Making love like bunnies on the living room floor
If I was to.... (ooh, la la la....)
Camp out on your doorstep
With a duffel bag of folded laundry
Would you still answer your doorbell or throw
A bucket of cold water over me
I'm only trying to state my case here
Pack your things, let's blow this place, dear
Chorus doubled.
