Songtekst

Take the children and yourself and hide out in the cellar.
By now the fighting will be close at hand.
Don't believe the church and state and everything they tell you.
Believe in me, I'm with the high command.

Can you hear me?
Can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running,
can you hear me calling you?
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running,
can you hear me calling you?

There's a gun and ammunition just inside the doorway.
Use it only in emergency.
Better you should pray to God, the father,
and the spirit will guide you and protect you from up here.

Can you hear me?
Can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running,
can you hear me calling you?
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running,
can you hear me calling you?

Swear allegiance to the flag. Whatever flag they offer.
Never hint at what you really feel.
Teach the children quietly for someday sons and daughters,
will rise and fight while we stood still.

Can you hear me?
Can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running,
can you hear me calling you?
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running,
can you hear me calling you?

Can you hear me?
Can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running,
can you hear me calling you?

Can you hear me running?
(can you hear me calling you?)
(can you hear me)
Hear me calling you.
(Can you hear me running?)

Hear me running back
(Can you hear me running?)
Hear me running
Calling you, calling you.

Trivia

Mike and the Mechanics is een Britse pop/rockband. In eerste instantie was het een hobbyband van de (bas-)gitarist van Genesis Mike Rutherford.
Voor de zang maakt hij afwisselend gebruik van Paul Carrack (ex- Ace en Squeeze) en Paul Young (niet de zanger die solo veel hits scoorde in de Top 40 maar de zanger van de groep Sad Café). Paul Young overleed in 2000.
