Run Away

You would think,
Running from your troubles is the clue,
Then you blink,
And all the troubles come back to you.

Mr. Romantic has a girlfriend.
And your boyfriend isn't romantic at all.
You would think you could go to your best friend,
But your best friend wouldn't answer your call.

The lights keep brightening,
And my nerves keep tightening,
And I feel like I'm about to lose my head!
You choose her instead.
So I run away from you.
To a place you could never go.
I'm not gonna give you a clue.
Because you always think too slow...

I just keep dreaming of you.
I just thought we could be in love too.
But I was wrong.
To you, we are where we all belong.

Duck face,
Silly trace,
You're killing me all over the place.
But I guess to you that's not the case.

The lights keep brightening,
And my nerves keep tightening,
And I feel like I'm about to lose my head!
You choose her instead.
So I run away from you.
To a place you could never go.
I'm not gonna give you a clue.
Because you always think too slow...

I can't think.
I can't breathe.
So I drink and drink and drink.
Till I can't breathe anymore.
I need some help.
I need a life.
But seeing her with you,
Added a knife.

The lights keep brightening,
And my nerves keep tightening,
And I feel like I'm about to lose my head!
You choose her instead.
So I run away from you.
To a place you could never go.
I'm not gonna give you a clue.
Because you always think too slow...

Will you ever see me again?
I don't know.
Will I ever love again.
I will never know...
