I've been home for days, but I refuse to call you
I've been home for days, I've been using my mind to spy on you
I hide and lock away the signs that I loved you
I crashed my car and buried every key that would allow someone to get to you

And what I run away from is why I'm not away when you're around.
When you see me standing back from the pictures in your bedroom leaning back
I'm surprised that I'm awake with my head floating off the ground

And I've been pissed for days, beating my head against the wall
Listen to the soundtrack of your mind that goes, "I don't know, I just don't know"
Get up and walk away, so happy that I feel so small

I'll be alone forever if I could but I'd never tell, no I'd never tell

And what I run away from is why I'm not away when you're around.
When you see me standing back from the pictures in your bedroom leaning back
I'm surprised that I'm awake with my head floating off the ground

And when our war is through I'll drink to me cause I'm alive (when our war is through)
I'll drink to me cause I'm alive

And what I run away from is why I'm not away when you're around.
When you see me standing back from the pictures in your bedroom leaning back
I'm surprised that I'm awake with my head floating off the ground

(when you're around)
With my head floating off the ground

When You're Around Lyrics

Down To Earth Approach – When You're Around Lyrics

I've been home for days, but I refuse to call you
I've been home for days, I've been using my mind to spy on you
I hide and lock away the signs that I loved you
I crashed my car and buried every key that would allow someone to get to you

And what I run away from is why I'm not away when you're around.
When you see me standing back from the pictures in your bedroom leaning back
I'm surprised that I'm awake with my head floating off the ground

And I've been pissed for days, beating my head against the wall
Listen to the soundtrack of your mind that goes, "I don't know, I just don't know"
Get up and walk away, so happy that I feel so small

I'll be alone forever if I could but I'd never tell, no I'd never tell

And what I run away from is why I'm not away when you're around.
When you see me standing back from the pictures in your bedroom leaning back
I'm surprised that I'm awake with my head floating off the ground

And when our war is through I'll drink to me cause I'm alive (when our war is through)
I'll drink to me cause I'm alive

And what I run away from is why I'm not away when you're around.
When you see me standing back from the pictures in your bedroom leaning back
I'm surprised that I'm awake with my head floating off the ground

(when you're around)
With my head floating off the ground
