lyrics

The school bell rings at 8AM
He pulls up in his truck like a small town king
wearing worn blue jeans
Bumping shoulders with his buddies on the football team
Locking hands with a girl she's the home coming queen
A pretty blonde little thing

He'll flash that perfect smile
As he's walking down the hall
But they don't know at all

That he's always running
From the truth that's left untold
He's always hurting
Cut by fine lines clear and loud
Written on the high school walls and holly halls
Around this small town
Always running, always running
Running him down

He lives his life in silent fear
Emotions on mute with everything to lose
Over what he couldn't choose
But he can't get him off his mind
That pretty band geek with the rose colored cheeks
And eyes like a day dream

But he thinks about the gym teacher
They ran him out of town when they all found out

So he's always running
From the truth that's left untold
He's always hurting
Cut by fine lines clear and loud
Written on the high school walls and holly halls
Around this small town
Always running, always running
Running him down

His crown's the fragile kind
But they'll get their pitchforks out
When he can't live this lie

So he keeps on running
From the truth that's left untold
He's always hurting
Cut by fine lines clear and loud
Written on the high school walls and holly halls
Around this small town
Always running, always running
Running him down

But he's still running
