This song was written in response to the muse tools challenge. It involved using a plot line, a title, a song structure and in my case 75% of the Lyric Cloud suggested.
The Lyric Cloud offered certainly suggested the image of the two people on the run, which the song is built on.
(Am) You knew arrests were beckoning as we (Dm) stumbled in the dark
(Am) Climbing Barcelona backstreets heading (E) up to Gaudi Park.
The (Am) car had been left in Carmel (Dm) exactly as we planned
We (Am) got out of the city in(E)to the hinter(Am)land.
(F) Going for darkness, that (C) moment of escape
(G) False hope was flowing - our (C) future we'd reshape
(F) Living for the moment re-dir(C)ecting shattered lives
(G)Leave behind the memory of (F)husbands (E)and of (Am) wives.
(Am) Our pulses racing, hoping we'd not be (Dm)stopped at a road block.
When we (Am) finally reached the hideout, the (E) door it was unlocked.
All (Am) colour from your face it drained, this was (Dm)not living the dream.
My (Am) energy was at an all time low when (E) I first heard you (Am) scream.
You'd restore me to my sanity if I could (Dm)see you once again.
`Cos (Am) here behind these prison walls I (E) fear I've gone in(Am)sane.
(Am) Jesus came and told me I should for(Dm)give you for your sin.
It was (Am) you who'd tipped the Mossos off, it was (E) you who turned us (Am) in.
