I'm so good at running away
You'd think I grew up on a stage
And you're so good at being alone
Who am I to bring you down?

Wonder why I'm still hangin around.
Was it the song?
I've known for years that we'd get here.
I can't make believe that we're not singing the same thing.
I've known for years that we'd get here
It'd be a shame to make believe
It's better to leave

It's so cruel the way I recall

And I question still whether I am just afraid
Who are you to stand in my way?
I wonder if I just sold you the crown
Was it the sound?

I've known for years that we'd get here.
I can't make believe that we're singing the same thing
I've known for years that we'd get here.
It'd be a shame to make believe

It'd be a shame to make believe, better to leave. (x3)

I've known for years that we'd get here.
I can't make believe that we're seeing the same thing
I've known for years that we'd get here.
It'd be a shame, it'd be a shame.

It'd be a shame to make believe.
It'd be a shame to make believe.
Better to leave.
