I'm running away
I've got to get home
I'm lost in a crowd
But I'm still on my own
I'm looking ahead
So I'm staying behind
I'm not being cruel
I'm just being kind

I close my eyes
It's no surprise
I'm always there
Can't count the times
I've tried to hide
And found nowhere

I'm trying to lay low
But I keep getting high
My feet on the ground
Got my head in the sky
My eye on the future
That's stuck in the past
I find I can't lose
When I aim to come last

I realise
It's no surprise
That nothing's clear
That black is white
That day is night
And there is here

I'm right on the ball
But I'm missing the mark
I burn in the sun
I'm scared of the dark
Got an ivory tower
With a bird's eye view
Got plenty of time
But nothing to do

The best disguise
It's no surprise
Is disappear
Can't count the times
I've tried to hide
And found nowhere

I'm running away
I've got to get home
I'm lost in a crowd
But I'm still on my own
I'm looking ahead
So I'm staying behind
I'm not being cruel
I'm just being kind

I realise
It's no surprise
That nothing's clear
That black is white
That day is night
And there is here

The best disguise
It's no surprise
Is disappear
Can't count the times
I've tried to hide
And found nowhere

I close my eyes
It's no surprise
I'm always there
Can't count the times
I've tried to hide
And found nowhere

I realise
It's no surprise
That nothing's clear
That black is white
That day is night
And there is here

The best disguise
It's no surprise
Is disappear
Can't count the times
I've tried to hide
And found nowhere
