"Runaway" as written by and Smith/bell/larsen....
Take a ride to the other side
Cause it feels so nice just to drive and drive and drive.
I'd make amends for the other night
If you'd be here with me holding me tight.
Is this the chance when we fly away?
Cause I need to know if I'm coming back,
I push and pull just to get what I want.
In the end I should know that you bring it all to me.

Reach out, you can go overboard if you want to.
In and out, don't lose control, don't lose control.
Just don't take it back.

And I get so close, but I runaway, I runaway.
Things I fear the most, keep me here to stay, but anyway

Can we try for right now, free of doubt.
If you give the chance I could try and figure out.
I'm kind of scared because I don't know how.
But I'm watching the close calls and catching my breath now.
There could be time when I'd fly away.
But you need to know that I'm coming back.
Don't want to push and pull anymore,
Just to get what I want, when you bring it all to me.

You said you always wanted someone to tell you it's OK.
Well, I guess it's my chance to tell everyone everything.

Can we talk about this?
Give me the chance and we'll fly away.
Can we walk around this?
Give me the chance and we'll fly away.

    General Commenti interpret this with relationships..one with your God, boyfriend/girlfriend..or just a friend.

    with Christ you may try really hard to solve everything on your own.."i push and pull just to get what i want" but you can't do it all on your own and you shouldn't try to..we weren't made to.

    sometimes in your faith you fall in and out in your relationship with God..but after you've accepted him he's always there. even if he's hidden. you just have to realize that he's there..goin with the chorus..and you always have the fear brought by the Lord.."the things i fear the most keep me here to stay"

    but also in boyfriend/girlfriend situations..you want them to tell the truth and you want a serious kind of love..but your afraid of hurt and dont want them to say anything they wont mean."Reach out- you can go overboard if you want to
    In and out- don't lose control, don't lose control
    Just don't take it back "
