The A to Z of Madonna

Runaway Lover

Written by Madonna and William Orbit

You lost your reputation on a woman
You didnít understand or care to know
You get your education from your lovers
But now thereís just no place for you to go

It doesnít pay
To be a runaway lover
It doesnít pay
To give away what you lack
Youíll never get your money back

Youíre set adrift with no direction
Just like a ship thatís lost at sea
You donít care where you drop your anchor
Make sure it doesnít land on me

It doesnít pay
To be a runaway lover
It doesnít pay
To give away what you lack
Youíll never get your money back

Walking around on a cloud
Cause every girl you meet just trips on you
Saying your name out loud
I guess you met your match
Now what will you do

It doesnít pay
To be a runaway lover
It doesnít pay
To give away what you lack
Youíll never get your money back.
