Lyrics of Running Scared

Just running scared
each place we go
so afraid that he might show.

Sólo corriendo asustado
cada lugar al que vamos
tanto miedo de que pudiera mostrar.

Yeah running scared
what would i do
if he came back and wanted you.

Sí. La prueba del crimen
¿Qué haría yo
si regresaba y quería usted.

Just running scared
feeling low
running scared you loved him so.

Sólo corriendo asustado
sentimiento de baja
La prueba del crimen que lo amaba.

Just running scared
afraid to lose
if he came back which one would you choose?

Sólo corriendo asustado
miedo a perder
si regresaba ¿cuál elegir?

Then all at once
he was standing there
so sure of himself his head in the air
my heart was breaking which one would it be
(???) here turn around and walk away with me.

Luego, todos a la vez
él estaba allí de pie
tan seguro de sí mismo con la cabeza en el aire
mi corazón se rompía cuál sería
(???) Aquí la vuelta y camina lejos de mí.


'Running Scared' is a 1961 American pop song written by Roy Orbison and Joe Melson and sung by Orbison. An operatic rock ballad, the song was released as a 45rpm single by Monument Records in March 1961 and went to number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

'Running Scared' also appears on Orbison's 1962 album titled 'Roy Orbison's Greatest Hits' and (in a live version) on his 1989 posthumous album 'A Black & White Night Live' from the 1988 HBO television special.

Noted for being a song written without a chorus, the verse builds to a climax that, without vibrato, demonstrates the power of Orbison's clear, full voice. It is written in the bolero style; Orbison is credited with bringing this to the rock genre.

While 'Running Scared' was an international hit, the B-side 'Love Hurts' also picked up significant airplay in Australia. Consequently, chart figures for Australia show 'Running Scared'/'Love Hurts' as a double A-Side, both sides peaking at #5. This makes Orbison's recording of 'Love Hurts' the first version to be a hit. 'Love Hurts' would later become better known in a version by rock band Nazareth, who had an international hit with it in 1975.
