"Run Away" as written by Edward Joel Kowalczyk, Chad David Taylor, Patrick Dahlheimer and Chad Alan Gracey....
"Looks like I've lost my will to carry on, my friend" she said
And you can hear it in my whispered cries for love
I need your blissful touch to carry me away again
So can we roll tonight, roll through your desert, can we start over and just

Run away, run away tonight
It ain't no victory, but I don't care, I don't care if its wrong or right
We can just run away, run away tonight
It ain't no victory but I don't care, I don't care if its wrong or right

"Looks like I've lost my will to carry on, my friend" she said
I'm like a posse that's been ridin' for days
I've got the scars to prove that love has had its day and it's way with me
So can we roll tonight, roll through your desert, can we start over and just

Run away, run away tonight
It ain't no victory but I don't care, I don't care if its wrong or right
We can just run away, run away tonight
It ain't no victory but I don't care, I don't care if its wrong or right

This ain't no night to be on your own
You've got to know where you're coming from
To know just where you're goin', lord
You've got to know where you're coming from
This ain't no night to be on your own

Run away, run away tonight
It ain't no victory but I don't care, I don't care if its wrong or right
We can just run away, run away tonight
It ain't no victory but I don't care
I don't care I don't care I don't care I don't care
Run away
Run away
Run away

    General CommentThis song is about those nights when you feel like "love has had its day and it's way" with you. You don't give a damn about anything, but you also know there's no victory in the pain you feel. In the "desert" of relationships, the nights are always cold. In the darkness, you hope you can lose yourself such that it might be possible to start over. But then comes the bridge of the song; Ed proposes that the only real way to get through these situations is to center yourself (spiritually). You've got to consider how every painful memory from the past arises into the present moment and then falls into the future. No matter how much you say you "don't care," meditation on this simple theme of the dependent origination of all moments can guide you through the "desert" -- whatever that may be.
