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 CommentI got this song as a bonus track on iTunes.
    He's saying that someone has a really bad life and how they want to run away from everything and everybody in the world. But comes to find out, it's just himself "On the Inside"
    You can't run away from yourself.
    Inspiring song ♥

    General CommentThis song is about someone going through a really hard time. Not for a short amount of time but for a significant amount of years. They're tired of seeing their life crumble in front of their eyes. They figure that if they move, then things will become better with their life. They can move to another town and not tell anyone where they are going in hopes that their problems won't follow. You can zoom out of there as fast as possible, you can move, change your name...but you're problems are only going to follow. You can't run away from your feelings.
