Back to You Run Away lyrics

You Run Away

You run away
You could turn and stay
But you run away
From me

I tried to be your brother
You cried and ran for cover

I made a mess, who doesn't?
I did my best but it wasn't enough

You run away
You could turn and stay
But you run away
From me

You run away
You could turn and stay
But you run away
From me

I'll give you something you can cry about
One thing you should try it out
Hold a mirror shoulder high
When you're older look you in the eye

When you're older look you in the eye

I tried but you tried harder
I lied but you lied smarter
You made me guess, who was it?
I did my best but it wasn't enough

You run away
You could turn and stay
But you run away
From me

You run away
(I tried to be your brother)
You could turn and stay
(You cried and ran for cover)
But you run away
(I made a mess, who doesn't?)
From me
(I did my best)

That's not something to cry about
It's not something to lie about, ooh

You run away
(I tried to be your brother)
You could turn and stay
(You cried and ran for cover)
But you run away
(I made a mess, who doesn't?)
From me
(I did my best but it wasn't enough)
