Hey, hey you
I know it's been a long time coming
A long time coming
And it's me and you
I know I've been a long time running
A long time running

The way you smile
The way you never stop believing me
I've got you living in a fairy tale it's killing me

I know we're heading for disaster
But I keep running faster and faster

And I don't wanna wake you up
Cause I don't wanna let you down
I'm scared I'll never be enough
To keep you around
And there's a part of me that knows
I'm everything you need
But I'm afraid to let you in
Afraid of what you'll see
And now you're falling even harder
For a boy you'll never know

Hey, hey you
I know it's been a long time coming
A long time coming
It's me, and you
I know we've been a long time kissing with something missing and

It's in your eyes, you are as happy as you'll ever be
I've got you out of breath and loving girl, it's killing me

I know we're heading for disaster
But I keep running faster and faster

And I don't wanna wake you up
Cause I don't wanna let you down
I'm scared I'll never be enough
To keep you around
And there's a part of me that knows
I'm everything you need
But I'm afraid to let you in
Afraid of what you'll see
And now you're falling even harder
For a boy you'll never know

And you think this boy is never letting you go
But there's so much in this heart you'll never know

I know we're heading for disaster
But I keep running faster and faster
I know we're heading for disaster
But I keep running faster, faster, and faster

And I don't wanna wake you up
Cause I don't wanna let you down
I'm scared I'll never be enough
To keep you around
And there's a part of me that knows
I'm everything you need
But I'm afraid to let you in
Afraid of what you'll see
And now you're falling even harder
For a boy you'll never know
Cause I'm afraid of what you'll see
Faster, faster, faster
Afraid of what you'll see
Faster, faster, faster
I'm afraid of what you'll see

    General Commentthis is a really amazing song that should have been on the album! Im not sure how close I am but to me this song is about a guy who really loves a girl but is afraid to let her see who he really is because he doesn't think hes good enough for her. he really wants to show her who he is but he's so afraid he cant even begin to. Just my thoughts.

    General CommentI LOVE this song, and I hope they play it at their toronto concert on april 5th, im thinkinng its about a boy who is in love with a girl, but the girl doesnt know him. He made up this persona for her, cuz he doesnt think he would be good enough :(

    So sad.

    General CommentThis song is about someone trying to be someone they're not to keep the girl he loves. But he knows it will end because all the lies will come crashing down around him. <3 this song
