"On The Run" as written by Martin Peter Harrington, Ash Howes, Natalie Jane Imbruglia and Kara E. Dioguardi....
I'm looking for a way
To calm these voices in my head
With all this mad confusion
I don't want to leave this bed

I'm on the run
I'm on the run again

And I don't know which way is left
And there's no point in not being right
So I'll hold my breath 'till I see the light
I'm on the run
I'm on the run again
From me

I'm drowning in these feelings
And it's scaring me to death
Staring at the ceiling
So many things I could have said

I'm on the run
I'm on the run again

And I don't know which way is left
And there's no point in not being right
So I'll hold my breath 'till the morning
'Til I see the light

So, so many times
So many signs
You're out there waiting
I should have known you're out there waiting ooh

And I don't know which way is left
And there's no point in not being right
So I'll hold my breath 'till the morning
'Til I see the light
I'm on the run
I'm on the run again
From me

    General CommentOne of my all time favorite songs. Everything is working on this song. From the dramatic piano to the near crystal clear projection of Natalie's voice to the powerful lyrics. The singer seems to be lost or interpreting the story of one who is lost. There seems to be regret in an action when she says, "So many things I could have said." She's scared, confused, a theme common in her music. She's running from something, which she reveals is herself. She's done something and doesn't want to face the consequence. Something that I am sure many people do as a form of coping or dealing with a less than perfect situation.
