lyrics

She pushed him away
After he'd struggled to explain
She couldn't bear his touch again

She couldn't relate
Her memory of his embrace
To this creature in his place

She thought she might pray

But asking for answers
With none to be found
Her pleas tumbled down to the ground
She can't be saved
As he kicks all the props away

Like a sleeper who's broken cover
There's a man who would be his lover
Strange how love can change
But what can she say
As he walks away

She cradles her rage
Learns to stand it
Tries to face
All the questions in his wake
As day follows day

And item by item
She goes through their lives
And wonders when he touched her
Was it real or just a lie?
Was her love just a place to hide?

Like a sleeper who's broken cover
There's a man who would be his lover
Strange how love can change
But what can she say?

He woke up and it dragged her under
She can stand it or let it drown her
Strange
Her choice is made
She won't run away

Though her world's falling down
She won't run away
Though there's fear all around
She'll face it 'til it fades away
She won't run away

Though her world's falling down
She won't run away
Though there's fear all around
She's gonna face it 'til it's faded away
One day
She won't run away
She won't run away
