Runaway

Runaway Cover Art

Way back in the 1980’s, when a band I was with at the time called Sharp Edges, before we had even released our album, an influential manager of the day told us we should release this cover of Del Shannon’s Runaway as our first single. For whatever reason, we did not and released On The Edge, a great song mind you, as our first single. The band had moderate success with the album but some of us always wondered what might have happened had we released this version of Runaway first.

Well damnit, I have decided to release it now, better late than never! I re-mastered it, slowed it down just a bit and beefed it up. Hope you like it. Let me know in the comments.

For the record, the members of Sharp Edges were: Dan Zimmerman on bass, Tom Lang on guitar and vocals, George Klimow on drums, myself on guitar and vocals and featuring John Webster on keys.

As I walk along, I wonder
A-what went wrong with our love
A love that was so strongAnd as I still walk on, I think of
The things we’ve done together
While our hearts were youngI’m a-walkin’ in the rain
Tears are fallin’ and I feel the pain
Wishin’ you were here by me
To end this miseryI wonder
I wah-wah-wah-wah-wonder
Why
Why, why, why, why, why
She ran awayAnd I wonder
If you will stay
My little runawayI’m a-walkin’ in the rain
Tears are fallin’ and I feel the pain
Wishin’ you were here by me
To end this miseryAnd I wonder
I wah-wah-wah-wah-wonder
Why
Why, why, why, why, why
She ran awayAnd I wonder
If you will stay
My little runaway
