He's a Runner Lyrics - Laura Nyro

Review The Song (3)



He’s a runner and he’ll run away. Soon there’ll be no man.
Woman ain’t been born who can make him stay, woman get away while you can. He’s a runner.

He’s a runner and he’ll run away with the midnight train.
Woman ain’t been born who can make him stay,
come the judgement day, come the rain, he’s a runner.

There’ll come the running, he knows he’s got to.
Don’t ask him not to or why, oh why, oh why did you leave me and run off with tomorrow?
Now I’m in chains till I die.

He’s a runner and he’ll run away. Soon there’ll be no man.
Woman ain’t been born who can make him stay, woman get away while you can.
He’s a runner. He’s a runner and he’s got to run, he’s got to run away. He’s a runner.

see video of Laura Nyro singing this | Reviewer: toby | 10/29/2007

One of the most beautiful renditions of any pop song I have ever heard and seen - she was sooo young, and looks so shy, sitting there and singing this emotional song - and she gets angry and tough, too. It's on Youtube. One of only two videos I've found of the late great Laura Nyro.

Laura Nyro was a singer songwriter who was very popular in the 60's-70's period.Many of her songs were remade by other singers and it is those versions you hear on the radio today.This is unfortunate,because the remakes sound very much like the originals(with less feeling) ,and as a consequence when they play her music they usually credit some pop group instead of Laura Nyro.Check out her album for the real deal.

From the days of old--performed also by the 5th dimension and also by Blood, sweat and Tears--I believe.

Laura sang and played it on her first album. One can only wonder to whom she was referrng.
