lyrics

did your conversations kill
was it the world that called you a creep
did it leave you searching
for a piece of bliss beyond your reach
did you sign that autograph
the one that meant you sold your soul
took that southern train
because the limelight never lasts, the limelight never lasts

Sour boy, sour boy
why’d you run away
Sour boy, sour boy
why’d you run away, why’d you run away

constantly falling to pieces
in the end what still remains
your blue friend, he ran the show
a momentary cure for all the pain
when the dogs finally found you
did they lead you down to the depths
fire flicker burns a paper heart
did you sell your soul for the moment

Sour boy, sour boy
why’d you run away
Sour boy, sour boy
why’d you run away, why’d you run away
