I've Been Running away for far too long
Afraid of what
Afraid of what I know is soon to come
I may not be much of an example right now
But I can give you all of my knowledge on how
to get along in this place
right now all I can say

Is that I will do the best that I can
to be a good example of man
I know one day that You'll understand
you deserve the best that I am
you deserve the best that I am

It's So hard
so hard to think about when I was child
so angry at life
I blamed the world for such a long long time
But Things happened so quickly
some people just go
I needed answers to heal me
I wanted to know how to get by
and now its my turn to say


This is all for you
everything in this world
everything in my world
everything in your world
things won't always go right in this life
there's always changes
we'll make it

    General Commentthis is one of those songs that i can totally relate to and i feel as though, if i were as talented as flaw is at expressing themselves in words, i would have written this song. it talks about a guy, who was deeply hurt when he was younger, and now wants to show the world, and the girl who he loves, that he is capable of being an amazing person, and that he doesn't want anyone to feel sorry for him, and that he'll let go of the past and love the present and be the best he knows he is.
