I live in a separate life
A life that is something common
Teens have done this many times
They do this for freedom
Or to get away from their parents

The secret life of a runaway
I've done this many times
I did this to get away from my problems
To get away from my parents
To get away from their rules
And their strict policies

I ran away to escape the life that I was forced to be in
I did it because I wanted to do what I wanted to do
No parents
No guardians
No babysitters
Just free to do what I wanted

Is it wrong?
Yeah, it probably is
But do you want your parents
To keep you away from the goodies in life?
Should I go home?
Or should I travel to other places?
