I lay sideways in your backseat
While the traffic lights silently judge me
And you kept giving me attitude

If you know me now then you knew me then
I haven't made any new friends
I'm still the same lucky boy who got away

I ran away, I ran away
It was too dangerous to stay
I couldn't keep you in one piece for more than a moment

I ran away, I ran away
I was too afraid to stay
You couldn't keep me happy for more than a moment

And the sounds started cutting out
And I could hear the strange thoughts you were keeping
And I stopped accepting that excuse

If you don't want me now then you never did
You can curse my name but I'll still live
So just walk away

I ran away, I ran away
It was too dangerous to stay
I couldn't keep you in one piece for more than a moment

I ran away, I ran away
I was too afraid to stay
You couldn't keep me happy for more than a moment

I'll see you around
In the underground
The caverns of my nightmares

My dreams keep pushing you away

Feet on the ground
Doesn't mean a thing
If you want to be moving

I'm watching you waste away in place

I ran away, I ran away
It was too dangerous to stay
I couldn't keep you in one piece for more than a moment

I ran away, I ran away
I was too afraid to stay
You couldn't keep me happy for more than a moment

I ran away, I ran away

I ran away, I ran away
