Runaway Lyrics by Lil Peep
Released : 2018


Take me away from here
Everybody’s so fake, everybody’s so fake I swear
But I don’t wanna go back there, everybody’s so fake, everybody act like they care

Take me away from here
Everybody’s so fake, everybody’s so fake I swear
But I don’t wanna go back there, everybody’s so fake, everybody act like they care

Everybody act like they care, why the fuck do everybody, yeah, act like they care
I was dying and my body was there
Please don’t cry baby, life’s ain’t fair
I run away from my problems
I do the drugs when I wanna
I ran away from my momma
Don’t bother me with no drama
Now I’m looking for a ghost girl
I ain’t never gonna find her
Poppin pills in my cup girl
Now I gotta get high first
Now I’m looking for a ghost girl
I ain’t never gonna find her
You are everything I know girl
Ain’t funny how life work

Take me away from here
Everybody’s so fake, everybody’s so fake I swear
But I don’t wanna go back there, everybody’s so fake, everybody act like they care

Take me away from here
Everybody’s so fake, everybody’s so fake I swear
But I don’t wanna go back there, everybody’s so fake, everybody act like they care

Everybody act like they care, why the fuck do everybody, yeah, act like they care
I was dying and my body was there
Please don’t cry baby, life’s ain’t fair
I run away from my problems
I do the drugs when I wanna
I ran away from my momma
Don’t bother me with no drama




LIZA’S DIRECTOR’S NOTES:

I’m so proud to have been given the opportunity to collaborate with Steven Mertens on the video for Runaway. It has allowed me to make something beautiful for my son — in his honor. Early in the process, many of us agreed that Runaway would be a great song to release as a single for COWYS 2. It is a powerful song that tells the story of how Gus–aka Lil Peep–had decided to leave his apartment in LA, but he didn’t want to come home to live in Long Beach, either. So, he had gone to stay in London. That was a productive and happy time for him–working with friends like Smokeasac and ILoveMakonnen.

This video tells that part of Gus’s story. The story is told using many of Gus’s drawings, from different periods of his life. After transforming into the wonderful “flaming-haired” character that Gus drew, himself, he flies away from LAX to London–to make music with some of his best friends.

I know you will enjoy watching it. You will see different things each time you watch. His drawings. His tattoos. His friends. The house where he really lived. And his dog, Taz, the “legend.”
