I walk around your needs and tiptoe through your shallow thoughts.
What I found in between buried worries was beautiful compliments.
Things I'd never heard and only dreamt of being true in my world.
So I ran and it all scattered up.
The compliments became fears and the beauty became dark.
My world got proven right and i gave it all up.
My footsteps shook the depths of your crumbling mind,
All the compliments just kept getting harder and harder to find.
I ran faster and the beauty fell deeper,
I cried harder and the love got further.
I didn't understand I had ran to death,
When safety was wanted but left in your hands.
My love was the same, your love seemed to change. My pain was deep to keep yours from ever surfacing.
Say sorry to yourself cause you don't owe me an apology.
I'm not the girl you saw and I'll never be the girl you see.
I'm the girl who stayed and she's the one running.
