Her question so simple, desire so pure
The answer much bolder and blatant for sure
But whom could she ask oh, and where could she find
Excuses and riddles that make up her mind

So she stays and waits with baited breath
And makes it through the year
Til death, or life runs its course and she
Makes her way out of here

She sits still in silence and buries her head
In her hands that still tremble from words that he'd said
So calloused and ruined and stupid and sad
And broken and full of the hopes that they'd had

But she stays the course and sits aboard
The train bound south and west
And plays over again the words shed said
Forgetting most but recalling the best

She said Tag you're it
Its your turn to chase me I'm running too fast while you stand set in stone
So I'll slow my pace, I need you to catch me
This isn't a race if I run it alone
So please don't quit
Cause you, you're all that I have
You're it

She unpacks her bags to her new dresser drawers
And makes a home of a ceiling four walls and a floor
But she notices life still goes on as it does
And the grass is the same shade of green as it was

And the nights still cold and the days still long
And she cant find a friend
So she desperately writes the boy once more
This time in a more subtle pen

She says, "Tag, you're it
It's your turn to chase me I'm running too fast while you stand set in stone
So I'll slow my pace, I need you to catch me
This isn't a race if I run it alone
So please don't quit
Cause you, you're all that I have
You're it."

But he's carried the burden too long
In the wake of the wreckage she left was he wrong to
Stand his ground, and settle down
And stop chasing the dream of tomorrow and living today
He's chased her too long now she's got to find her own way


So he says, "Tag, you're it
It's your turn to chase me you're running too fast while I stand set in stone
And though you've slowed your pace, you're still running from me
Stop running your race and try coming back home
But I wont quit
Cause you, you're all that I have
You're it."
