She Runs Away, Duncan Sheik

December 22, 2008

You may not see the end of it
But luckily she comes around
It isn’t what she talks about
It’s just the way she is

(…and she says)
Ooh darlin’ don’t you know
The darkness comes and the darkness goes
Ooh babe why don’t you let it go?
Happiness is never how you think it should be so

I mystified the simple life
I covered up with consciousness
I saw myself and broke it down
‘Til nothing more was left
She saw the symptoms right away
And spoke to me in poetry
“Sometimes the more you wonder why
The worse it seems to get”

(…and she says)
Ooh darlin’ don’t you know
The darkness comes and the darkness goes
Ooh babe why don’t you let it go?
Happiness is never how you think it should be so
But she runs away
She runs away…

And then you know comes a time
You need her more than anything
You may believe yours are the wounds
That only she can heal
Then everything will turn around
And she becomes so serious
What she chose to offer you
Was all that you could have

(…and she says)
Ooh darlin’ don’t you know
The darkness comes and the darkness goes
Ooh babe why don’t you let it go?
Happiness is never how you think it should be so
But she runs away
She runs away…

Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth.

Karma police, arrest this man, he talks in maths
He buzzes like a fridge, hes like a detuned radio
Karma police, arrest this girl, her hitler hairdo, is making me feel ill
And we have crashed her party
This is what you get, this is what you get
This is what you get, when you mess with us

Karma police, Ive given all I can, its not enough
Ive given all I can, but were still on the payroll
This is what you get, this is what you get
This is what you get, when you mess with us
And for a minute there, I lost myself, I lost myself
And for a minute there, I lost myself, I lost myself

For a minute there, I lost myself, I lost myself
