Laura Branigan Lyrics. Gloria, you're always on the run now Running after somebody, you gotta get him somehow I think you've got to slow down before you start to blow it I think you're headed for a breakdown. So, be careful not to show it You really don't remember, was it something that he said? Are the voices in your head calling, Gloria? Gloria, don't you think you're falling? If everybody wants you, why isn't anybody calling? You don't have to answer Leave them hangin' on the line Oh-oh-oh, calling Gloria Gloria Gloria , I think they got your number Gloria I think they got the alias Gloria that you've been living under Gloria But you really don't remember, was it something that they said? A-ha-ha, a-ha-ha, Gloria, how's it gonna go down? Will you meet him on the main line, or will you catch him on the rebound?
