Outside the lines of baltimore
There's a cemetary sleeping
I stopped to watch you yelling at your dog
The effect was rather creepy
In front of strangers long since gone
I watched you hammer home your hate
Someday you'll look back at what you've become
A ghost behind a gate

Chorus
Oh ohh oh
I wish I could run to save you
I wish I could run
I wish I could run to save you
I can't be the one

You could blame it on the way he would hit you
The taste of blood mingled with shame
And there's a feeling that lies deep within you
But you cannot give it a name
No one can understand me you say
No one knows your pain
You shake your fists and raise your voice
Here comes the madness again

Chorus
Oh ohh oh
I wish I could run to save you
I wish I could run
I wish I could run to save you
I can't be the one
No I can't be the one

You wish you were more like me but I'm not
Who you make me out to be
You wish you were more like me but
I'm not who you make me out to be
No one can understand me you say
No one knows your pain
You shake your fists and raise your voice
Here comes the madness again

Chorus
Oh ohh oh
I wish I could run to save you
I wish I could run
I wish I could run to save you
I can't be that
I wish I could run to save you
Ohh I wish I could run
I wish I could run to save you
I can't be the one


No I can't be the one
No I can't be the one
