The Lyrics

If the man runs inside or outside
Like the teenager in the man said they would
Then I guess I'll just begin again
You say, "can we still be running? "

If I was scared... I would
And if I was bored... you know I would
And if I was yours... but I'm not

All the teenagers have always known
That the boys and girls wears your clothes
But they bow down to him anyway
'Cause it's better than being alone

If I was scared... I would
And if I was bored... you know I would
And if I was yours... but I'm not

Now you're knocking at outside
Saying please come out with us tonight
But I would rather be alone
Than pretend I feel alright

If the man runs inside or outside
Like the teenager in the man said they would
Then I guess I'll just begin again
You say, "can we still be running? "

If I was scared... I would
And if I was bored... you know I would
And if I was yours... but I'm not

Now I'm running it up

If I was scared... I would
And if I was pure... you know I would
And if I was yours... but I'm not

Now I'm running it up

Now I'm running it up
I would rather be wrong
Than live in the outside of your shadows
My mind is open running
And now I'm running it up

Now I'm running it up
My mind is going to do
And now I'm running it up
You're not sure
You can go faster
And step out into the light

Now I'm running
