I am looking for the group that does a song that I think is called Runaway. It's from around 1982-1984, could be new-wave, with a male and female singing in it and some of the lyrics are:

You're just a runaway, running away
You're just a runaway, running away

(Male singing)
When I met you, you were just 16
All alone, you were on the streets
Your father was a drunk, your family was poor
I promised you that I would even the score
I took you in, I gave you a home
I gave you confidence, I gave you hope
And now, you wanna leave me, is that a threat?
Tell me, is this the thanks I get?

You think you're running away (so run away)
I'm gonna make you say you're

You're just a runaway, running away
You're just a runaway, running away

(Female singing)
I want to thank you for all that you've done
We had memories, we had such fun, but
I never promised you anything
Not even back when I was 16
The way I feel is plain to see
You'll always be so special

Has this one been solved yet? It's by One-Two-Three - "Runaway" from Baby records (1983).

Has anyone located this song on Kazaa or any other place. I'd like to down it.
Let me know.

I thought it was a song Ricky Dean and Dante sang on the Dianah Shore show around the eighties. Richard Dean Anderson of McGyver fame sang it with Dante his band member.
