In the middle of the road

In the darkness of the night

You were like a frightened animal

In my headlight

You were cought within the glare

You were taken by surprise

It was like a shiny ray of truth

Shown in your eyes

Why do you run?

Why do you lie?


Were you sure that you were safe?

That no one would ever find

You could just resign yourself

To leave your love behind

In the quiet far away

You had built a place to hide

Living all alone with just

Your thoughts of suicide

Why do you run?

Why do you lie?


Well, I can't believe anyone could pretend

She wanted her world to come to an end

And she won't even hear the words of an angel

The words of a friend


I can't believe there's so much to fear

She wants to drown out all that she hears

So she ignores the words of an angel

That scream in her ears


The words of an angel


I'm beginning to believe

I begin to comprehend

You've built up the walls that block

The messages we send

So we've done all we can do

And we know this may not end

But someone is waiting here

To love you once again

Why do you run?

Why do you lie?
