she runs away 
lyrics and music by duncan sheik

You may not see the end of it
But luckily she comes around
It isnít what she talks about
Itís just the way she is

(...and she says)
Ooh darliní donít you know
The darkness comes and the darkness goes
Ooh babe why donít 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
Till 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 darliní donít you know
The darkness comes and the darkness goes
Ooh babe why donít 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 darliní donít you know
The darkness comes and the darkness goes
Ooh babe why donít you let it go?
Happiness is never how you think should be so
But she runs away
She runs away...
She runs away...
She runs away...
