about

Persecution is sometimes the price paid for blowing the whistle on corruption. Yet change is a chain reaction. As ever more people feel compelled to reveal the truth, the possibility for systemic change becomes greater.

Runaway is Caroline's entry in the 2019 Ireland Music Week competition.

lyrics

And you're on the run
But they won't tell you what you've done
You're on the run
Even though you've done nothing, done nothing wrong

You're on the run
But they won't tell you what you've done
You're on the run
With neither sword nor gun

Three days you've been running with your backpack on your back
And when you reach your destination you ain't never going back
'Cause your life's dangerous these days in oh so many different ways
You figure out who you can trust
And you do everything you must

'Cause you're on the run
But they won't tell you what you've done
You're on the run
Even though you've done nothing, done nothing wrong

And ooh ooh have a little sympathy
Have a little sympathy, oh won't you
And ooh ooh have a little sympathy
But it's not hard to stay free with the friends you make on your journey

And you're on the run
But they won't tell you what you've done
You're on the run even though you've done nothing, done nothing wrong

It's a crazy old world when the sinners are in charge
It's time for something new it's time to change the guard

'Cause you're on the run
But they won't tell you what you've done
You're on the run
Even though you've done nothing, done nothing wrong

You're on the run
But they won't tell you what you've done
You're on the run
With neither sword nor gun

You're on the run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run
You're on the run even though you've done nothing, done nothing wrong

You're on the run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run
You're on the run even though you've done nothing, done nothing wrong
