You life is like a crack in the mirror
Seven years of bad luck, it ain't getting better now
And after all is said and done
Your reflection in the window is the same old face
Background, small town, every way you look around
Tell me what you're running from

Flip a coin and let it land in your hand
Head, you are gonna stay
But it's tail so you can

Move to another town
Hide where you're sure you won't be found
But it's still just you on the inside
You can pretend it'll be alright
Sell it to yourself, but you know it's just a lie
'Cause it's still just you on the inside
Still you on the inside

Nothing faster than the speed of your leaving
A hundred miles an hour and there ain't no slowing down
But you can't outrun yourself
Hey, you can say you fit in like a joker in the deck
But now you are skipping like a broken record going 'round
And you are the last to ask for help

Flip a coin and let it land in your hand
Head, you are gonna stay
But it's tail so you can

Move to another town
Hide where you're sure you won't be found
But it's still just you on the inside
You can pretend it'll be alright
Sell it to yourself but you know it's just a lie
'Cause it's still just you on the inside
Still you on the inside

There's never really been the question of how far
The beginning of every destination, there you are

You can move to another town
Hide where you're sure won't be found
But it's still just you on the inside
Oh you can pretend it'll be alright
No matter how you sell it
When you tell it it's a lie
'Cause it's still just you on the inside
Still you on the inside

(You can go and change your name, to me you'll always be the same)
Still you on the inside
(You can try to run and hide, you'll always be the same inside)
Still you on the inside
(You can go and change your name, to me you'll always be the same)
Still you on the inside
(You can try to run and hide, you'll always be the same inside)

Still love you on the inside

    General CommentMy view on this song is about a person who feels they don't and will never belong. So they try running away, and only to realise that running will never work for them because of the life they've had.
