Why So Afraid Tom? - Lyrics

You remind me of some people
Who don't want their pictures taken
‘Cause they're afraid you might take their soul
Won't let anyone come near you
You always keep a distance
Don't show your feelings, only your presence, if at all

I only want to know you, but if I come any closer
You build up the walls that surround you
Why go away, are you afraid I might get to know you
Don't you have anyone that you trust

Why so afraid, Tom, why go away, Tom
Why so afraid, Tom, why go away, Tom

I heard you had a love, Who went off with your best friend
I know it wasn't too long ago
Have you lost the trust you once had
‘Cause your lover found another
You hide the pain, ‘cause you don't want it to show

I often see you standing at the far end of the bar
With a smile I have never understood
When you go out, do you wonder
If the friends you make and mix with
Really like you for yourself, or what you do

Why so afraid, Tom. Why go away, Tom
Why so afraid, Tom. Why go away, Tom

I hope you understand what I am trying to convey
I only want to be your friend
But this distance that you're keeping
Doesn't make it very easy
It's your life, so who am I to condemn

Why so afraid, Tom, why go away, Tom
Why so afraid, Tom, why go away, Tom
