You don’t have to run away

I was never just a toy

Why don’t you look me in the eyes, and see the news

You were never there the day

Fate and I we knocked on you door

Why don’t you read between the lines and tell the truth

What’s your man do when you’re alone

You’ll never know

Your were always in the way

When I crawled up across your floor

Always the notion to get by, I know it’s you

You will never have to say

That you ever had the bore

Wish you’d uncross those evil lies and let me through

What’s your man do when you’re alone

You’ll never know

What’s your stand

Now you’re on your own

You’ll never know

Who were you to blame

Now that it’s for more

And you thinks that there’s a light inside of me

You were just the same

Just the same before

Now you want to see a light inside of me

Inside of me

(my leg is sore)

You don’t have to runaway

I will never be a boy

Why don’t you look me in the eyes and see the news

Your boyfriend hates me

You won’t ever have to say

That you ever had a choure

I wish you’d read between the lines and let me through

(2X) What’s your man do when you’re alone

You’ll never know

What’s your stand

Now you’re on your own

You’ll never know

    General Commentthis song sems to be about a guy who was trying to get with a girl and she turned him down. Now the girl is with another guy who is cheating on her. Now the person in the song is trying to get her to see that her b/f is not a good guy, while at the same time explaining that he is not just doing it to try and get with her.

    General Commenthaha, i like how so many people (not necissarily you guys) take reggie seriously. i see them as almost a parody of cheesy progrock (i think that's the term i'm looking for). that's not to say i don't like them, i love them. i just don't take them seriouisly cuz it's all so cheesy and cliche, but they meant it to be so it's ok :)

    General CommentThey are sort of a mockery of prog rock, but it stands alone....This song, Relive the Magic, etc, are just good songs. It's obviously a joke band, but they make some catchy songs.

    General CommentThey do have good songs.
    And the advantage of them just screwing aronud is that
    they have no set genre.
    i actualy like this song because (even though its before my time) im starting to really like the cure but they didnt bother getting into full prog-mode.
    omg "prog-mode", i like it!

    General CommentReggie and the Full Effect was put together by a member of the Get Up Kids as a side project. Side project or not they still make great music. I like this song because I have felt this way for a long time. People often do not see what they do not want to see.

    General Commentyes Chaos is correct. it is a side project. i saw them play. it was somewhat of a joke, i mean he got up on stage in a chicken costume and sang the chicken song. but then they did this song, Thanx for Staying, Girl, why did you run away, etc. simply amazing.

    General Commenti think that this stuff of being a joke band is more like a valve to scape the bad feeling of being a loser, acting as an asshole "joking" with the feelings that you feel.

    nah maybe not.
