Various Artists – Hoobastank - Running Away lyrics

I don't want you to give it all up
And leave your own life collecting dust
And I don't want you to feel sorry for me
You never gave us a chance to be
And I don't need you to be by my side
To tell me that everythings alright
I just wanted you to tell me the truth
You know Id do that for you
Why are you running away?
Why are you running away?
Cause I did enough to show you that I
Was willing to give and sacrifice
And I was the one who was lifting you up
When you thought your life had had enough
And when I get close, you turn away
Theres nothing that I can do or say
So now I need you to tell me the truth
You know Id do that for you
So why are you running away?
Why are you running away?
Is it me, is it you
Nothing that I can do
To make you change your mind
Is it me, is it you
Nothing that I can do
Is it a waste of time?
Is it me, is it you
Nothing that I can do
To make you change your mind
So why are you running away?
Why are you running away?
... What is it I've got to say...
So why are you running away?
... To make you admit youre afraid...
Why are you running away?

    My take: Another song about a person being lead on. She won't tell him why she is running away, she just can't admit the reason, which causes him immense frustration and pain because he has done everything he can and he loves her. He just want's her to just come out and say it already! What's the deal? The way she treats him leads to feelings of doubts and insecurities about himself.
