baby we were born run.


Hey Wendy, let me in, I wanna be your friend,

             A                                 B
I wanna guard your dreams and visions.

Just wrap your legs 'round these velvet rims,

         A                                    B
And strap your hands across my engines.

And Together we could break this trap,

       F#m                          Amaj7                   E         B4

Oh will you walk with me out on the wire?

             F#m                        Amaj7
Girl, I'm just a scared and a lonely rider,

But I gotta know how it feels,

I want to know if love is wild, baby,

    A                    B4
I want to know if love is real.


(sorry for the instrumental : I'll see to it one day)

Baby we were born to run.
