"You Run" as written by and Dave Davies....
Heavy thoughts seem to slip away
When you are here on my darkest days
I trust in you
Many debts I cannot repay

Too many clouds in my sky today
I trust in you
As if it really matters
You run, you hide

When I reach out for a hand to
Pull me through the storm
Pull me through the storm
I reach for you

Broken glass as evening fades
Take another drink as it fades away
I trust in you
Stealing rays from the sun so bright

Join a million people in the church tonight
I trust in you
As if it really matters
You run, you hide

When I reach out for a hand to
Pull me through the storm
Pull me through the storm
I reach for you

In... my... mind I reach for you
Spread inside
My mind
You'll find

That you really matter
What's right
In this life
We must try
As if it really matters

When I reach out for a hand to
Pull me through the storm
Pull me through the storm
I reach for you

    General CommentSup people. This song I think is pretty clear what it means. If I'm wrong please correct me, but it seems this song is about God. "Stealing rays from the sun so bright
    Join a million people in the church tonight
    I trust in you"
    That hand he is referring to in the song is God. Very touching and spiritual song.

    My OpinionI've always thought this song was meant to be for a significant other who had died.

    "When I reach out for a hand to
    Pull me through the storm
    Pull me through the norm
    I reach for you"
    -Always hoping the person who died helps him from afar through his daily life

    "Join a million people in the church tonight"
    -He's attending a funeral, or attending a mass on the anniversary of that person's death

    There's parts of the song that don't quite fit with this meaning (As if it really matters, You Run), but still, it's my two cents on the topic.

    General CommentI love this song, it's just so meaningful unlike the crap we get today like Britney Spears etc. Now I don't want to sound all moody and stuff but why don't bands like this get more recognition god dammit!

    General CommentHoly shit no kidding, I agree totally with daggerscream...Britney sucks, she can't sing...and there's all these bands out there who can sing, and lyrics have meaning unlike rap crap. As for meaning I'm not really sure if its supposed to be spiritual, if it is it'd be cool. I think part of it has to do with asking if anything we do on earth really matters -"we must try as if it really matters".

    General CommentI think this song is about one of two things:

    A.) God

    or

    B.) A woman he is expressing himself to.

    Either would fit the lyrics quite well.

    General CommentI doubt it's about God, because of verse that starts out like:
    Spread inside my mind you'll find that you really matter...
    God wouldn't need to be reassured like that, lol.

    So it must be about another human, and in the lyrics about joining a million people in the church, he's probably just finding his mind wandering off to that other person while he's there, it happens.
