"We Can Run Away Now, They're All Dead And Gone" as written by Gary Lightbody, Mark Pete Mcclelland and Jonathan Graham Quinn....
One step too far
Is not far enough away from here

Stay close to me
Don’t relax your grip on my right hand

But you are all I really want in this life
You could be the summer rain on my face
You push a little tear into my eye lid
Don’t torture yourself thinking that it must sting

Don’t turn your head
Pretend they’re all dead and gone by now

Can you feel that?
Feels like breath on the back of my neck

But you are all I really want in this life
You could be the summer rain on my face
You push a little tear into my eye lid
Don’t torture yourself thinking that it must sting

    General Commentthis is a great song, except, its only on the pre-release album.

    It never made it to retail, which is a shame.

    You all should download it!

    General CommentHello? It's on the album.

    13: We can run away now they're all dead and gone.

    Or it's on mine and everyone I knows copies.

    Anyway... (I know you're all gonna hate me) least good on the album. I don't mean to say it's bad. It's just not as good as the rest.

    General CommentThis track is a 'bonus' track on the UK special edition, if anyone could actually be bothered to buy it.
    I think this is about a couple who want to run away together to a better life, that's just my opinion lol

    General CommentWe Can Run Away Now They're All Dead And Gone

    They are maybe the demons that have haunted their relationship. Remember that Lightbody came out of his Dark Days after this Album. This could be when he finally breathed fresh air. Huh? Anyone?

    BEAUTIFUL! i love it, its a brilliant song, about sticking together I think, and trusting each other instead of listening to what other people have to say about your relationship.

    Also i am positive it is right hand not right hip
