Waterdeep – You Can't Hide lyrics

I talked to a girl I know the other day
About her married life,
It started just two months ago
She was sayin it was hard
She don't know if they'll make it through,
I'm thinkin, "Baby, it ain't even begun to snow."
Darlin', You can't hide

A brother of mine and I went out for a walk
On the moon
As the sun began to set
I ran home. I know how cold it gets out there at night
But, Mama, he ain't come home yet
I been tryin' to tell him, You can't hide

I'm gonna tell you now that you just can't hide
Whoever told you you could, Babe, they just lied

Just today I fell down while I was
Carryin' my cross
You lifted it off my back
I closed my eyes. I thought, "it's over now,"
Everything went black
But I heard you say, You can't hide

They may've thrown you out in the wrecking yard
When you were only two,
But are you gonna get through
You may have swallowed down a poison pill,
Maybe it bowed you to the ground or broke your will
But I tell you Oh, no, You can't hide

I'm gonna tell you now that you just can't hide
And if they told you could, babe, they just lied
I'm gonna tell you now that you just can't hide
You can't run away from what you got inside
