From the recording The Deep End
You can run but you can’t hide there forever. (Ooh ooh ohh)
That’s what she said right before she fled wherever. (Ooh ooh ooh)
And yet she keeps coming back.
Still shackled up in our past.
I’m not the man that I used to be.
Now I can finally see that I don’t wanna be
No, I don’t wanna be her everything.
But she doesn’t take no for an answer. (Ooh ooh ooh)
She’ll always come and go at her leisure. (Ooh ooh ooh)
I just can’t find the words to say.
And so I end up becoming her prey.
She won’t leave so easily.
But somehow I gotta make her see that I don’t wanna be
I’ll dial that third nine if need be.
If it’s the only way she’ll see
That there’s more to her life than me
And I’ll be become nothing but a distant memory for don’t wanna be
No, no, no I didn’t wanna be
I gotta make her see there’s more to her life than me.
No, I don’t wanna be
