She can't hide no matter how hard she tries
Her secret disguise behind her lies
And at night she cries away her pride
With eyes shut tight, staring at her inside
All her friends know why she can't sleep at night
All her family asking if she's all right
All she wants to do is get rid of this hell
But all she's gotta do is stop kidding herself

She can only fool herself for so long (3x)
She can only fool herself

I'm too weak to face me
I never know just why you run
So far away, far away from me
I never know just why you run
So far away, far away from me

When it comes to how to live his life
He can't be told
Says he's got it all under control
Thinks he knows it's not a problem he's stuck with
But in reality, it'd be a problem to just quit
An addict and he can't hold the reigns
The pain is worse 'cause his friends have it the same
Tries to slow down the problem he's got
But can't get off the carousel
Until he makes it stop

He can only fool himself for so long (3x)
He can only fool himself

I'm too weak to face me
I never know just why you run
So far away, far away from me
I never know just why you run
So far away, far away from me

I never know just why you run
So far away, far away from me
I never know just why you run
So far away, far away from me

Fly with me under the wings I gave you,
Try to be closer to me and I'll save you

Fly with me under the wings I gave you,
Try to be closer to me and I'll save you
