I run away cause I'm
Scared that you might leave
There's nothing wrong
But that's not what I believe
Just tell me it's alright
And tell me I'm okay
And tell me that you're
Staying here tonight

I feel stupid saying
Words you've heard before
The way I feel today
Is all I know for sure
And if I scare you
I'm only scaring me
I've got so much to say
Why won't you speak with me
I need to know

What you're feeling
Do you feel like I do
Let's talk about everything
I want to share my life with you
And tell me that you feel
The way I feel with you
And tell me that
You love me like I do

You're in my life
Well I want to be sure
I'm not wasting time
I've been through this before

    This is definitely one od my fave songs from "hang ups" It's just about feeling insecure in a relationship because everything you say is essentially a re-run even though you wish there was a way to say it so you know they'll believe you.
    It's just a nice love song w/ some funky fresh ska undertones.

    this song, along with My Head, makes me think of my girlfriend and i because i always feel that i care more about her than she cares about me. Great song, like every one on this album!
