On the Run Lyrics

[Verse 1: Zach Callison]
It's time to get moving, time for us to have some fun
There's no time to hang around, our adventure's just begun
We'll be thinking 'bout our friends as we chase the setting sun

[Chorus: both]
But we're leaving them behind, we're on the run

[Whistling interlude]

[Verse 2]
We're on the run
I don't care about what all the others say
We're on the run
Well I guess there are some things that will just never go away
We're on the run
I wish that I could say that there's no better place than home

[Chorus: both]
But home's a place that I have never known
That's why we're on the run
