Verse 1

I'm trying so hard to paint a picture.

Of the big day that seems way too far.

I'm trying to picture you in a tux, and my stomach hurts with laughter.

Cause you look so much better in a t-shirt, one you'd wear to a karaoke bar.

I don't even know how we'll even plan and save, for such a crazy day.

And the thought of wearing high heels makes me wanna run away.

Hey, let's run away.

Chorus

Let's run away, baby, hold my hand.

Don't need to marry in front of a bunch of people we can't stand.

Save the money, they can be used better

For all the things I plan to do when we live our lives together.

I don't need jewels or a fancy dress.

Cause I'm sure you won't mind if I look like a mess.

Don't need a video, who can ever forget this day?

Baby, hold my hand, let's run away.

Verse 2

Can you picture us exchanging vows

In front of guests seated rows after rows?

I don't want us to fight over flowers and menu and the perfect dinner set,

Over the silly little things that I'd want to do, the ones that you always hate.

Can you picture being surrounded by random people on our one special day?

Let's ditch this little puppet show, lets' do our own thing, what do you say?

Hey, let's run away.

Chorus

Let's run away, baby, hold my hand.

Don't need to marry in front of a bunch of people we can't stand.

Save the money, they can be used better

For all the things I plan to do when we live our lives together.

I don't need jewels or a fancy dress.

Cause I'm sure you won't mind if I look like a mess.

Don't need a video, who can ever forget this day?

Baby, hold my hand, let's run away.

Bridge

I don't want a fairytale wedding; our story is nothing less than a fairytale.

I can't picture making you work hours and hours to save up and going through hell.

And I can't picture myself planning everything in the greatest detail.

Let's make eloping so fabulous that the whole world will hail.

Chorus

Let's run away, baby, hold my hand.

Don't need to marry in front of a bunch of people we can't stand.

Save the money, they can be used better

For all the things I plan to do when we live our lives together.

I don't need jewels or a fancy dress.

Cause I'm sure you won't mind if I look like a mess.

Don't need a video, who can ever forget this day?

Baby, hold my hand, let's run away.
