I couldn't stay, the walls were creeping in on me
I can't explain the reason for it
I've worn so many faces it's hard to find which one is mine now,
run from so many places I don't know where I can go this time.

can't keep running away from myself.

Every day I feel you creeping in on me
I can't explain the reason for it....
well could this be love?

oh, I've run from so many places I don't know where I can go this time

can't keep running away from myself.

    General CommentThis song is about the way people try to run away from their true selves, "[wearing] so many faces" to escape, and how being in love can bring you back to your self. It acknowledges about how futile trying to run away is, because in the end you only end back up at your self. It's a song of acceptance to who you really are, particularly in the face of love.

    It's an absolutely breathtakingly beautiful track, and my favourite from The Dusk Sessions.
