Original Roy Orbison version
Just running scared each place we go
So afraid that he might show
Yeah running scared, what would I do
If he came back and wanted you
Just running scared, feeling low
Running scared, you love him so
Just running scared, afraid to lose
If he came back, which one would you choose
Then all at once he was standing there
So sure of himself, his head in the air
My heart was breaking, which one would it be
You turned around and walked away with me
