lyrics

you’ve worked your magic
on more than one of my friends
i should have seen
how this was going to end
why did i think it would be different?
i’m just another helpless man
i used to wonder why you do the things you do
now i know, you just do them cause you can

i try to play fair, but every time i do
you take everything you want and do anything you want to
i’ve heard you say the words, but girl, if this is love
well, it isn’t worth the trouble, i swear i’ve had enough
run away—it’s what i’ve gotta do
run away—it’s what i’ve gotta do
run away—babe, i’ve thought it through

you taught me more
than i ever wanted to learn
i try to forget
but your lessons always return
i didn’t think you had it in you
when we started you were warmer than the sun
but somewhere along the line
you turned so cold, now i find myself alone
how could you leave me so undone?

i try to play fair, but every time i do
you take everything you want and do anything you want to
i’ve heard you say the words, but girl, if this is love
well, it isn’t worth the trouble, i swear i’ve had enough
run away—it’s what i’ve gotta do
run away—it’s what i’ve gotta do
run away—babe, i’ve thought it through

the secrets that i keep for you
the lies you believe for me
i don’t know what it means to be free
but i know it’s not this

i try to play fair, but every time i do
you take everything you want and do anything you want to
i’ve heard you say the words, but girl, if this is love
well, it isn’t worth the trouble, i swear i’ve had enough
run away—it’s what i’ve gotta do
run away—it’s what i’ve gotta do
run away—babe, i’ve thought it through
