Eric Carmen
Am                      D
She was just an average blue-eyed, golden high school dream
     Dm                              Am
An illusion nothing real could ever touch
                                           D
Funny love seemed so much more intense at seventeen
       Dm                               Am 
When I knew she'd never love me half as much

G            C               F
I recall the desperate vow I made
              E              F
I must find a way somehow to win her heart
     Em              Am
I've got to make her mine

Chorus:
      Am   G           C                F 
Gonna run away, till I prove that I'm a man
      Am   G           C             F
Gonna run away, be the best I know I can
       F    G           C                 F
Got to run away, got to find my space and time
      E                                         Am
And I cannot rest a day until I make her mine

Am                      D
Trades were made for promises of a timeless memory
     Dm                              Am
And I knew but still refused to comprehend 
                                           D
The fantasy more glamorous then she could ever be
       Dm                               Am 
Was the course of least resistance in the end

I recall the desperate vow 

      Am   G           C                F 
Gonna run away, till I prove that I'm a man
      Am   G           C             F
Gonna run away, be the best I know I can
       F    G           C                 F
Got to run away, got to find my space and time
      E                                         Am
And I cannot rest a day until I make her mine
