Turn around
You can't face up to me
I stand my ground
I'm just what I seem to be
Why in the world
Would you give me a second look
Except I'm up here
And you're down there
But you'll never know what it took
You don't care what it took


The look in your eyes
As I turned on the light
The look in your eyes
A look of surprise


Sneakin' around
In this one trick town
And you can't face up to me
I know your crowd
And they're not that proud
At least not from what I've seen
Flies in the ink leave
Footprints across the sea
Trace them back to where it all gets had
You find the cuts never run too deep
The cuts never run too deep


How many times have I tried
Just to get away from you
And you reel me back
How many times have I lied
That there's nothing that I can do
No, no


And how many times have I tried
Just to get away from you
And you reel me back
How many times have I lied
That there's nothing that I can do


I stand my ground
I'm just what I seem to be
You'd run me down
For so long, for so long
The weight that I carry
Knowing what they've done to us
How many names does it take to lay blame
On the people you always should trust
The people you always should trust


The look in your eyes
As I turned on the light
The look in your eyes
The look of surprise


How many times have I tried
Just to get away from you
And you reel me back
How many times have I lied
That there's nothing that I can do
No, no


And how many times have I tried
Just to get away from you
And you reel me back
How many times have I lied
That there's nothing that I can do


'Cause I can't face up to you
