I'm so good at running away
You'd think I'd grown up on a train
And you're so good at leading them on
Who am I to bring you down?
I wonder why I'm still hanging around
Was it the sound?

'Cause I've known for years that we'd get here
And I can't make believe that we're not seeing the same thing
And I've known for years that we'd get here
And it'd be a shame to make believe, it's better to leave

And it's so cruel, the way I recall
I ran out of lies to take it all
My questions tell whether I am just afraid
But who are they to stand in my way?
I wonder if I just soldier the crown
Was it the sound?

'Cause I've known for years that we'd get here
And I can't make believe that we're not seeing the same thing
'Cause I've known for years that we'd get here
And it'd be a shame to make believe...

It'd be a shame to make believe it's better to leave
It'd be a shame to make believe it's better to leave
It'd be a shame to make believe its better, better, better, better to leave

'Cause I've known for years that we'd get here
And I can't make believe that we're not seeing the same thing
'Cause I've known for years that we'd get here

And it'd be a shame
It'd be a shame, shame
It'd be a shame to make believe
It'd be a shame to make believe
Oh it's better to leave
