Where did you go, where did you go when you
ran away, when you ran away
You said you never looked back, you said you
never looked back that day

How could you throw, how could you throw this
all away, this all away
You said you wanted this back
but you couldn't come back that way

Sometimes we need some help when life gets hard to do and
I know I got caught up but I've been pulling through
And I know I might have slipped when I told you I didn't need you
Well you never know what you have until it leaves you, until it leaves you

How did it go, how did it go
that song you made, that song you made
You said you couldn't remember
but you didn't like it anyway

How did you know, how did you know that it'd
be this way, that it'd be this way
you said you couldn't go down
you just couldn't go down that way

Sometimes we need some help when life gets hard to do and
I know I got caught up but I've been pulling through
And I know I might have slipped when I told you I didn't need you
Well you never know what you have until it leaves you, no you never know what you have until it leaves you

You know, you know you took my breath away
Well it wasn't that hard to do,
Cause you know, you know I needed you
To tear me apart, and make me new, oh tear me apart
and make me new
make me new

Sometimes we need some help when life gets hard to do, and
I know I got caught up but I've been pulling through
and I know I might have slipped when I told you I didn't need you
Well, you never know what you have until it leaves you
no, you never know what you have until it leaves you

and I'm sorry

that you had to go so soon
you said you couldn't stay, more than you had to, and
you swore you knew it from the start
that some day we'd fall apart, and you wouldn't know what to do
well heaven knows you did more than you had to
heaven knows you did more than you had to
oh and I hope you know you did more than you had to

when you ran away
