From the recording Life Speeds Up

Lyrics


You don’t have to runaway
And you, you don’t have to stay

We’ve been staring at these walls for affection
Back to back we face the wrong direction

I thought I knew you so well
You say you don’t recognize me
Love or hate I can’t tell
I suppose that you despise me

You don’t have to runaway
And you, you don’t have to stay

These broken chains that hold us together
Against the tides of stormy weather

Love so safe no taking chances
You don’t dare to live without it
I’m not one for great romances
I don’t care to care about it

We’ve been staring at these walls for affection
Face to face still the wrong direction

I thought I knew you so well
You say you don’t recognize me
Love or hate I can’t tell
I suppose that you despise me

You don’t have to runaway
And you, you don’t have to stay
Yeah you, you don’t have to runaway
Yeah you, and you don’t have to stay
