She can't hide no matter how hard she tries
Her secret disguise behind her lies
And at night she cries away her pride
With eyes shut tight, staring at her inside
All her friends know why she can't sleep at night
All her family asking if she’s all right
All she wants to do is get rid of this hell
Well all she's gotta do is stop kidding herself

She can only fool herself for so long x3

Chorus
I'm too weak to face me
I never know just why you run
So far away, far away from me
I never know just why you run
So far away, far away from me

When it comes to how to live his life
He can't be told
Says he's got it all under control
Thinks he knows it's not a problem he’s stuck with
But in reality, it'd be a problem to just quit
An addict and he can't hold the reigns
The pain is worse cause his friends have it the same
Tries to slow down the problem he's got
But can't get off the carousel
Until he makes it stop

He can only fool himself for so long x3

Chorus

Fly with me with the wings I gave you
Try to be closer to me I’ll save you
Fly with me with the wings I gave you
Try to be closer to me I’ll save you
Just follow me
I never know just why you run
And I’ll show you what you wanna see
Just follow me
So fall away away from me
And I’ll show you what you wanna see

    General CommentI love this version of the song. It's way better than the original. A lot of the demos that LP made are better than the originals, yet the never made it onto Hybrid Theory or the EP. Guess that's just what happens sometimes...
