I've been worried about you.
Maybe I hide it all too well.
You are somewhere else, you are.

Something's troubling you.
It's not difficult to see. Y
ou were someone else, you were.

You were strong a while,
you learned to fake a smile.
You run somewhere else,
you run far enough to shout.

One chose to stay, the other flew away. One chose to stray, the promises they made.
Hold on, just hold on.
You can make it, but you just can't make it...

I've been learning about you.
I've been figuring you out.
You are someone else, you are.
Stop light, you'll never make it.
Stop right before you break it.
You run somewhere else, you run far enough to shout.

One chose to stay the other flew away. On chose to stray, the promises they made.
Hold on, just hold on.
You can make it, but you just can't make it...
We will try to hide. We'll never make it on our own.

    General CommentOne chose to stay, the other flew away. One chose to stray, the promises they made.

    Oh my word, this scared me when I read it.
    I can really relate to this song well, but this line especially...it's eerie.
    The line reminds me of my parents.
    One chose to stay = My mom
    The other flew away = My dad (He's always flying away to places. He doesn't live with us.)
    One chose to stray = My stepdad (We have no idea where he went or what he's doing.)
    The promises they made = Everything they said would happen, but didn't.

    This just applies to me, of course.
