"...and like a moth that tries to enter the bright eye...
I go shuffling out of life, just to hide in death awhile"

Just running scared, each place we go Corro sempre spaventato ovunque vada
So afraid, that he might show Spaventato che si possa mostrare
Yeah, running scared, what would I do Sì spaventato, cosa farei
If he came back and wanted you? Se tornasse e ti volesse?
Just running scared, feeling low Corro spaventato, mi sento giù
Running scared that you love him so Spaventato che tu lo ami così tanto
Just running scared, afraid to lose Spaventato di perdere
If he came back, which one would you choose? Se tornasse, chi sceglieresti?
And then all at once, he was standing there E tutt'a un tratto era lì,
So sure of himself, his head in the air Così sicuro di se, la testa in aria
While my heart was breaking, Mentre il mio cuore si spezzava,
which one would it be? chi sarebbe stato?
Then you turned round and walked right out on me Poi ti sei girata e hai camminato verso di me
