    In the day, we sweat it out on the streets
    Of a runaway American dream
    At night we ride through mansions of glory
    In suicide machines
    Sprung from cages on Highway 9
    Chrome-wheeled, fuel-injected
    And steppin' out over the line
    Oh, baby this town rips the bones from your back
    It's a death trap, it's a suicide rap
    We gotta get out while we're young
    Cause tramps like us, baby we were born to run

    Wendy, let me in, I wanna be your friend
    I wanna guard your dreams and visions
    Just wrap your legs 'round these velvet rims
    And strap your hands 'cross my engines
    Together we could break this trap
    We'll run till we drop, baby we'll never go back
    Oh, will you walk with me out on the wire
    Cause baby, I'm just a scared and lonely rider
    But I gotta know how it feels
    I wanna know if love is wild, babe
    I wanna know if love is real

    Beyond the palace, hemi-powered drones
    Scream down the boulevard
    Girls comb their hair in rear view mirrors
    And the boys try to look so hard
    The amusement park rises, bold and stark
    Kids are huddled on the beach, in the mist
    I wanna die with you Wendy, on the street tonight
    In an everlasting kiss

    One, two, three, four!
    Highway's jammed with broken heroes
    On a last-chance power drive
    Everybody's out on the run tonight, but
    There's no place left to hide
    Together Wendy, we can live with the sadness
    I'll love you with all the madness in my soul
    Oh, someday girl, I don't know when
    We're gonna get to that place where we really wanna go
    And we'll walk in the sun
    But till then, tramps like us, baby, we were born to run
    Oh honey, tramps like us, baby, we were born to run
    Come on Wendy, tramps like us
    Baby, we were born to run
    Whoa, oh
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    Whoa, whoa, whoa
    Whoa, whoa, whoa
