Caution: You are now annotating this song as

You run away
You could turn and stay
But you run away from me

I tried to be your brother
You cried and ran for cover
I made a mess, who doesn’t
I did my best but it wasn’t enough

[Chorus]
You run away
You could turn and stay
But you run away from me

I’ll give you something can cry about
One thing you should try it out
Hold a mirror shoulder high
When you’re older look you in the eye
When you’re older look you in the eye

I tried but you tried harder
I lied but you lied smarter
You made me guess who was it
I did my best but it wasn't enough

[Chorus]

[Chorus 2]
You run away
I tried to be your brother
You could turn and stay
You cried and ran for cover
But you run away from me
I made a mess, who doesn't?
I did my best but it wasn't enough

But that’s not something to cry about
It’s not something to lie about

[Chorus 2]
