I knew as everyone did
We tried to keep it from you
(I think that you knew too)

How could I wait for something
too sad to think of?
To wait did feel wrong

I cried my heart out for you
I thought you’d always be here

What can that be like? What can that be like?
Knowing you can’t, knowing you can’t
Knowing you can’t run away

From the day I was born
To the day that you died
You were part of my life

I cried my heart out for you
I thought you’d always be here

What can that be like? What can that be like?
Knowing you can’t, knowing you can’t
Knowing you can’t run away

(**NOTE: this track appears on the “Skywriting + Singles” 2-disc set as “I Thought Wrong”, and also under the title “Runaway” on the rare “Demos & Sessions 2” cassette, with the only difference being the 3rd line is changed to “Still, I think you caught on”)
