You say you’re an island
I think that you just might be
Cause your missing out on so much
It’s like you’re lost at sea

You say you don’t need no one
Don’t want no one needing you
It’s all just a waste of your time
But it’s just an excuse

Only love can break a heart and only love can make it better
When you think your gonna fall apart
It’s the only thing that keeps you together
You can try and go and live without it
Dodge your way around it But while your running
Your gonna fall right in so what are you running from

You say you don’t need no one
Don’t want no one needing you
It’s all just a waste of your time
But it’s just an excuse oh you know it’s not true

Only love can break a heart and only love can make it better
When you think your gonna fall apart
It’s the only thing that keeps you together
You can try and go and live without it
Dodge your way around it But while your running
Your gonna fall right in so what are you running from

It could be just around the corner
Or she could be staring you right in the face yeah

You try to go and live without it
Dodge your way around it
But while you’re running
You’re gonna fall right in
So what are you running from

What are you running from
