Can’t Face Up

Turn around
You can’t face up to me
I stand my ground
I’m just what I seem to be

And why the world
Would give me a second look

Except I’m up here
And you’re down there
But you’ll never know what it took
You don’t care what it took

The look in your eyes
As I turned on the light
The look in your eyes
A look of surprise

Sneakin’ around
In this one trick town
And you can’t face up to me

I know your crowd
And they’re not that proud
At least not from what I’ve seen

Flies in the ink leave
Footprints across the sea

Trace them back to where it all gets had
You find the cuts never run too deep
The cuts never run too deep

How many times have I tried
Just to get away from you
And you reel me back
How many times have I lied
That there’s nothing that I can do
No, no

And how many times have I tried
Just to get away from you
And you reel me back
How many times have I lied
That there’s nothing that I can do

I stand my ground
I’m just what I seem to be
It’s run me down
For so long, for so long

The weight that I carry
Knowing what they’ve done to us

How many names does it take to lay blame
On the people you always should trust
The people you always should trust

The look in your eyes
As I turned on the light
The look in your eyes
The look of surprise

How many times have I tried
Just to get away from you
And you reel me back
How many times have I lied
That there’s nothing that I can do
No, no

And how many times have I tried
Just to get away from you
And you reel me back
How many times have I lied
That there’s nothing that I can do

‘Cause I can’t face up to you
