When I say I miss her
She don’t look surprised
She’s been having fun and
Hanging out with other guys
But what the hell
You know it’s worth a try

When I try and kiss her
She looks so surprised
I know she still wants it
I can see it in her eyes
And it takes me back
And takes me by surprise, yeah!

Don’t run away from me
Baby, baby run away from me
Yeah you’re the one I want
The only girl I will ever need
So run away from me
Baby, baby run away from me
Yeah you and I just never meant to be

Finally I kiss her
It makes me feel alright
And now she’s looking at me
Like she’s wanted it all night
And I take her back
And she turns out the light, yeah!

Now she’s in focus
Everything’s a dream
But the world around her
Isn’t what it seems
Now I see the message
Written in disguise
But I don’t think I need a good reply
