Verse 1

You have a child like simple mind.

In this day and age, it's hard to find.

But you don't have to drag it on and

Be a scared little boy, I don't understand.

Pre-chorus

I take a step forward, you take two steps back.

If I can't reach you, how will I fix the cracks?

Could it be because you're afraid

That my words would get into your head

And I'd make you fall in love with me all over again?

Chorus

Did I scare you today?

Did you run far away?

Like a scared little boy!

Are you scared to ride?

Are you trying to hide?

Like a scared little boy!

You're a scared little boy.

Verse 2

You're so naïve, you've been hurt.

But I can't start again from the start.

It's high time you open up to me and

Let me into your heart, I don't understand.

Pre-chorus

I take a step forward, you take two steps back.

If I can't reach you, how will I fix the cracks?

Could it be because you're afraid

That my words would get into your head

And I'd make you fall in love with me all over again?

Chorus

Did I scare you today?

Did you run far away?

Like a scared little boy!

Are you scared to ride?

Are you trying to hide?

Like a scared little boy!

You're a scared little boy.

Bridge

You're hiding under your bed

Hugging your toy,

Like a scared little boy!

Should be here with me instead,

Don't act so coy,

Like a scared little boy!

Pre-chorus

I take a step forward, you take two steps back.

If I can't reach you, how will I fix the cracks?

Could it be because you're afraid

That my words would get into your head

And I'd make you fall in love with me all over again?

Chorus

Did I scare you today?

Did you run far away?

Like a scared little boy!

Are you scared to ride?

Are you trying to hide?

Like a scared little boy!

You're a scared little boy.

Chorus

Did I scare you today?

Did you run far away?

Like a scared little boy!

Are you scared to ride?

Are you trying to hide?

Like a scared little boy!

You're a scared little boy.

Don't be a scared little boy!
