I put my heart on the back burner
Didn't wanna face my own misery
Smiled as hard as I could
That felt so much better to me
But sometimes I couldn't sleep at night
And food and shoes couldn't curve my appetite
I couldn't think and I couldn't pray
That's what really done it do me, I was running

[Chorus]
Running away, I was running [x3]

I, I, I tried to hide inside a beautiful place
I held on to my joy, but it felt so second place
More than anything I felt afraid
Afraid to feel the pain that I myself had made
Didn't like what I had done
But I realized I was on a run

[Chorus]
Running away, I was just running [x3]

I was just running
From shadow side of the pool
It wasn't me, just a caricature
Sometimes the pain came and I ran away
Didn't wanna see
That life can be hard and ugly sometimes
That's just the way it is
But I realized I couldn't keep running
From this no, no, that's the way life goes
Everything I'm supposed to feel,
Sometimes I'm supposed to cry
Sometimes I'm supposed to be confused
Sometimes we have to ask the question
Why? why?
That's the way it's supposed to be
Nothing in life is easy
Can't keep running, running, running, running
Can't keep running, running, running, running
I can't keep running

I put my heart on the back burner
Didn't wanna face my own misery
Smiled as hard as I could
That felt so much better to me
But sometimes I couldn't sleep at night
And food and shoes couldn't curve my appetite
I couldn't think and I couldn't pray
And that's what really done it do me,
I was running
I was running, running, running
I was running, running
I was running, running, running...
