Isabella, Isabella, I heard you crying through the walls
What's the matter? What's the matter?
All the neighbors hear it down the hall

And I didn't want to be the first to say
Everyone around here thinks you're crazy
And I didn't want to be the first to say you shouldn't stay,
Isabella run away

All your heroes are your records,
You play 'em loud but I don't mind the noise.
Why ya hiding? Why you staying?
Maybe you don't think you have a choice.

And I didn't want to tell you face to face
That your mom and dad are straight up crazy
It's really hard for me to say that you shouldn't stay,
Isabella run away

Don't you be afraid
It's never too late
You're a sleeping tiger, come awake
Isabella run away.

Out the window of your bedroom, climb on down the fire escape.
I left some money and a ticket.
For the first time in your life don't be afraid

And baby I will be the first to say
You are stronger than you know, you'll find your way.
Isabella run away.

Don't you be afraid
It's never too late
You're a sleeping tiger, come awake
Isabella run away.

Isabella, Isabella
Isabella, Isabella

Don't you be afraid
It's never too late
You're a sleeping tiger, come awake
Isabella run away.
