This one's pretty self-explanatory. From early 2009...on one of those headache mornings.
Sometimes it happens/I don't remember what I said/Too much of anything is a bad idea/There's someone else in here/but he's always gone the next day/And I'm left alone to pick up all this glass/And it's always me that's explaining away/All the things he did that I wouldn't have done...or not in that way/Caught a glimpse of him in the hallway mirror/He looked a lot like me/But I couldn't quite see him/As he was running away/Yeah, he was running away/And so I looked upon this ocean that I'd found/But I couldn't feel its waves/And I knew right there that you'd never be mine in exactly the same way/'Cause I could never feel what I couldn't hold/Neither sunlight or the rain/And I'm always after the very things I never will attain/And it makes you feel like you're the only one/I am a native son/And I won't be outdone/I am a native son/And I don't want to come undone/So no more running away/No more running...
