Runaways

If you see me falling out this window know I'm never really far from home
Daddy’s says he’s tired and Mama doesn’t like my tone
Somewhere we got tangled up in what we couldn’t say or do
And now everything I want, I want it just for you

Now when I start to drift, Daddy says, son, just sit tight
Mama shakes her head, says maybe next time you’ll get it right
But nothing that they want for me is ever going to make it true
And everything I dream, I dream it all for you

It’s only the way I feel
That makes me believe it’s real
They tell me I’ve been a fool
‘Cause all that I want's for you

Don't go on about the weather while I’m wishing that I understood
I'd take a hit of something but it never seems to do much good
‘Cause yesterday’s a shadow tomorrow’s light just can’t cut through
And everything I suffer, I suffer just for you

I know it’s only the way I feel
That makes me it believe it’s real
Don’t tell me I’ve been a fool
When all that I want is you

If you see me falling out this window know I'm never really far from home
Daddy’s says he’s tired, mama doesn’t like my tone
