"Hideaway" as written by and Michael Angelakos....
Who could love you in the way that you love you?
You're alone darling and there's nothing to argue
If your life evolves into ruin
Everyone's watching all that you're doing
Say your head's turning, maybe you should start running

Hideaway, hideaway
Where they'll never say you cannot stay
Come and play oh, my hideaway
Someday everything will be okay

You're not strong so you, you can hurt so badly
You don't mean to, hurting her is too maddening
When you do it's a war in your head
What you mean to say isn't always worth saying
Take a deep breath as soon as you let go

Hideaway, hideaway
Where they'll never say you cannot stay
Come and play oh, my hideaway
Someday everything will be okay

What's the point to this, feeling happiness in life?
As we fade off all the lines
Oh well, as we play into its lines, oh honey

Hideaway, hideaway
Where they'll never say you cannot stay
Come and play oh, my hideaway
Someday everything will be okay

    General CommentThis song is based on a conversation Michael Angelakos had with a nurse when he was in the hospital. He said how she said that being in the business, no one would really care about you ("You're alone darling and there's nothing to argue")

    He talked about it in an interview, I believe.

    General CommentThe actual lyrics are

    Who could love you in the way that you love you?
    You're alone darling and there's nothing to argue
    If your life evolves into ruin
    Everyone's watching all that you're doing
    Say your head's done in, maybe you should start running

    Hideaway, hideaway
    Where they'll never say you cannot stay
    Come and play oh, my hideaway
    Someday everything will be okay

    You're not strong so you, you can hurt so badly
    You don't mean to, hurting her is too maddening
    When you do it's a war in your head
    What you mean to say isn't always what's said
    Take a deep breath as soon as you let them

    Hideaway, hideaway
    Where they'll never say you cannot stay
    Come and play oh, my hideaway
    Someday everything will be okay

    What's the point of this, fleeting happiness in life?
    As we fight off our demise
    Or love, as we play into its lies

    Hideaway, hideaway
    Where they'll never say you cannot stay
    Come and play oh, my hideaway
    Someday everything will be okay
