Your fifteenth birthday was yesterday
Mother baked a cake,
She couldn't have a party
I thought her heart would break,
She keeps your photo in her hand
She doesn't sleep at night,
Just to see you walk in the door
Would make this heartache right.

Chorus

Come home runaway daughter,
The road's no place to be,
We all love and miss you
Your sister, mom and me,
Take the time to get in touch,
Let us know your well,
Just to hear the sound of your voice,
Would deliver us from hell.

We didn't like your piercings,
Or when you inked that sleeve,
We didn't think our worries
Would make you want to leave,
Your boyfriends didn't treat you
The way we thought they should,
You always said they loved you
We knew they were no good.

Chorus

We want to hold you in our arms,
To see your pretty smile,
We would give up everything
Pick up the phone and dial,
The time for fighting's over,
We won't make a fuss,
Come home our sweet Amy,
Get on that greyhound bus.

Chorus

Runaway daughter

Your a lady, a real 'A' lister,
No-one calls me sir or mister,
Your image on my magazine bed,
Our secret dates in my head,
Rocking red carpets latest trends,
I sit on the sidewalk with junkie friends.

Chorus

Worlds apart and not together,
You battle the press,
I fight the weather,
Poles between us face the fact,
Sometimes opposites don't attract.

Penthouse apartments and luxury cars,
My canopies the moon and stars,
You smile and raise your champagne glass,
I sip my can to make it last,
Adoring fans in selfie queue,
Everyone wants a piece of you.

Chorus

Minutes like days, days like weeks,
Every cardboard box that leaks,
The only thing that heals my pain,
Brings me sunshine in the rain,
Your face in a window of t.v's,
In the precinct where I freeze

Chorus

The newest fragrance with your name,
Scoring points in the money game,
Love and affection I can't win,
This concrete jungles closing in,
But we both toss and turn all night,
Longing for the morning light.

Chorus

Perfect angel in my dreams,
I'm a ghost or so it seems,
I know inside you can't be mine,
Maybe someday down the line
At least I'm free and you don't know,
Your a prisoner in a reality show.

Chorus
