Hook

Why won't you run away?

Why would you choose to stay

Verse 1

In the middle of the battle field?

Holding a tattered shield

That can't protect you from anything.

Can't you see you're bleeding?

But you're numb, you can't feel the pain.

You swore you'll never love again.

But this had started way before,

And somehow you still wait for me.

Hook

Why won't you run away?

Why would you choose to stay

Verse 2

And see the end of a losing fight?

You're hurting, it's not right.

But pain has now become your best friend.

So you stand there and lend

A shoulder, an ear, what he needs.

Your eyes smile but your soul bleeds.

You swear it's the last time you're here.

And is that what you really fear?

Bridge

Is that why you won't run away?

Is that why you would choose to stay?

And let him tell you how much he loves her?

Why won't you try to heal your scar?

Hook

Why won't you run away?

Why would you choose to stay?

Hook

Why won't you run away?

Why would you choose to stay?
