(A wise woman said, "I wish..")

What if I was wrong and jumped to conclusions?
Cause the chance of losing you was all too dangerous.
So I just assume that you're doing things before you get the chance,
So I can leave and feel like I've got the upper hand.

Guilty yeah, maybe I'm just scared to go all in,
Never was much for the life of gambling.
But you can't win if you don't play, If you don't play there's no shame in us.
Let's call a spade a spade!

I said I wouldn't let you down,
But it's like we both have changed somehow.
You've made a disease of this town,
And you act like you don't care, but you left.

Your tears on the runway, you think you're running away,
And you're leaving all your troubles behind,
But I'm not going with you this time.
I don't wanna try to pretend I'm somebody else, take me as I am or be left alone.
Tears on the runway (runaway),
You know that you love the chase.

Oh yeah, baby love,
With your tears on the runway.

This thing with us is flying south, if you know what I mean,
But I'm trying my best to keep you right here in my city.
A wise woman said, "I wish people weren't afraid of love."
Then she packed her shit and she ran, like a coward when the thunder struck.

Things aren't always picture perfect,
But picture us on top cause we're worth it.
Or go and get your ticket, and grab your sweater,
I used to live for the chase, but now I know better.

Your tears on the runway, you think you're running away,
And you're leaving all your troubles behind,
But I'm not going with you this time.
I don't wanna try to pretend I'm somebody else, take me as I am or be left alone.
Tears on the runway (runaway),
You know that you love the chase.

I love the chase, you know that I love the chase.
