You run away, you could turn and stay
But you run away from me

I tried to be your brother
You cried and ran for cover
I made a mess, who doesn’t?
I did my best, but it wasn’t enough

You run away, you could turn and stay
But you run away from me
You run away, you could turn and stay
But you run away from me

I’ll give you something you can cry about
One thing you should try it out
Hold a mirror shoulder high
When you’re older, look you in the eye
When you’re older, look you in the eye

I tried, but you tried harder
I lied, but you lied smarter
You made me guess, who was it?
I did my best, but it wasn’t enough

You run away, you could turn and stay
But you run away from me
You run away, you could turn and stay
But you run away from me

It’s not something to cry about
It’s not something to lie about

You run away, you could turn and stay
But you run away from me
