I Don't Know Why She Ran Away

Lyrics

I don’t know why she ran away
Just when it seemed we were getting
A little bit closer
As each night fades to day
She seemed to fade in her own way

Hold me
Don’t hold me
Just hold me
You think you know who I am?
You don’t know me
I’m sorry
I’m not sorry
I’m sorry
I gotta figure this out

I don’t know why she ran away
Just when it seemed we were getting
A little bit closer
As my hair turns to grey
She seemed to turn in her own way

I miss you
I don’t miss you
I miss you
I only wanted to talk
Maybe kiss you
I need space
To digest
What we’ve been through
I gotta figure this out
Don’t stay
Baby please stay
You can’t stay
Every night of my life
Ends the same way
I want to
And don’t want to
It’s both true
Why can’t I figure this out?

I don’t know why she ran away
Just when it seemed
We were getting
A little bit closer
As a beast follows prey
She seemed to follow her own way

I don’t know why she ran away
Just when it seemed
We were getting
A little bit closer
As her sentence was stayed
She’ll always be in her own way
A little bit closer
