"Runaway" as written by Greg Bergdorf, Justin Mauriello, Ali Tabatabaee, Edwin Udhus and Ben Osmundson....
She wakes up in the morning
In the same room that she's been in her whole life
And everything still looks the same
But the feeling of the room has changed in spite

She said
"You don't know what it's like to be stuck in my mind"
She said
"You don't know what it's like to be stuck in my mind all the time"

Bruised lips and the make-up
Tattooed hips and pierced
For the sake of letting everybody know
She don't belong here
Old tricks that she made up

Attitude
I don't give a fuck
For the sake of letting everybody know
She says I won't belong So long
It's not a lost cause
She's just a runaway

Is there nothing left for you to say?
And if she comes home
Do you think she'll want to stay?
Is there anything for her?
She's a runaway
Turn your back on yesterday
She calls at seven thirty

And wants to talk about her boyfriend one last time
Mom and Dad are fighting in the background,
Shattered glass cuts through red wine
I said,
"I don't know that I'm right but I know that you're wrong"

[Chorus]

Blacked out
Passed out at a party
In another town
With the same old Bacardi
Nothing ever changes what's inside me
Someone find me, someone find me
My heart showed me the way out

Don't stop
Don't give up on me now
Two beats, two streets
Too many repeats to blow my only other way out

[Chorus]

    General Commenti think it's not so much she doesn't care as she whats someone to care about her like 'Someone find me, someone find me' makes me think she wants someone to be there and 'Don't stop Don't give up on me now' makes me think that she's thinking people are losing faith in her and moving away from here when she needs support... maybe? i dunno

    General Commenti dont know but is the bacardi a link to the other song where a young girl gets raped. Like watch out what you do this than could happen to you? While the song just goes on without going that way.

    General CommentOk its about a girl who is tring to escape the violence of her home life by going to parties and having self destructive behavoir hince the "Bruised lips and the make-up

    For the sake of letting everybody know
    She don't belong here
    Old tricks that she made up"

    General CommentTo me this song means that there's a girl who is obviously undergoing a lot of pressure, and she's trying to survive the only way she knows how, and she's wreckless in doing so, and feels all alone at the same time, the singer is portraying himself as maybe a friend, boyfriend or person that knows of this person, and is basically saying she's just about ready to leave home because she can't stand it anymore, but I could be wrong ;)

    General CommentI agree that she seems to be self-destructing.
    Not sure who singer is as he seems to be tellig her friends not to give up on her "It's not a lost cause..."
    and he can tell that she wants someone to be there for her.

    I adore this song, am using many of it's lyrics for a piece of art form my exams.
