I've been thinking
About you and me
Maybe I was just
Seeing what I wanted to see

You can call me crazy
But you know this time I swore
That I wouldn't run
But I can't do that anymore

I can't find a way to stay
And I can't see my way to go
And I can't give up without a fight

I can pack myself up in a matter of minutes
Leave you all far behind
All of my old world and all the things in it are hard to find
If they ever were mine

You've been trying
And I know it's been hard
And I'm afraid of
All this blood in my heart

If there's one thing certain
It's there ain't nothing for sure no
And I want to run
But I can't do that anymore

'Cause I can't meet you half way
And I can't have it my way
And I can't give up without a fight

I can pack myself up in a matter of minutes
Leave you all far behind
And all of my old world and all the things in it are hard to find
All of my old world and all the things in it are hard to find
Like they ever were mine

I could count the good
Times we had on one hand
Now all the rest was
A sort of means to the end

Well not it's done
And I can never go back
To where I was before
And then I wanna run

Get myself clean in a matter of minutes
Get it wrong everytime
And all of my whole world and all the things in it are hard to
Hard to find

Everything change in a matter of minutes
Nothing was saved in time
All of my old world, all the things in it are hard to find
But they never, never, never were mine
