When you get to the top in the small town
Then you find you got friends you never knew about
It's five AM but I keep on walkin'
I can't go home for success has locked me out

You see my luck went to his head
He could have kept quiet but instead
Now everyone knows

Chorus:

I'm running away from you
I'm running away from you
I'm running away from you
And your heart

It started off just a small time scandal
The people talk and they smile to win your confidence
Mistaken trust that you took as friendship
Has let you down when you needed to be up

Well all the money in the world
Can't buy the silence of this girl
So now everyone knows

Chorus

And you know that we will always stay
Lovers in a small town kind of way
But the high life called you
I should have known but instead

Chorus

Thinking back to when I first met you
So shy and young as an innocent
You were number one
No real desires I just want to be near you

You took my love, my emotion, then off you ran
My reputation as your flag
You held it high I bet you're glad
That everyone knows

Repeat chorus to end
