I've heard all the talk
Yeah this road's no good for you
A line of bleeding hearts behind her throne
And she flaunts them like she's claimed them as her own
She's built her castle through the sky
But there's a part of me she won't defy
I've built my guard up just as high

[chorus]
And she's breaking through this
The wall's on fire
Here's my heart for you
Have you been rendered breathless
Will you fall off or will you follow
And invade my runaway world

I must be honest
It hasn't been this way in years
And I never thought I'd let this come
They're telling me your love is faithless
But this is the way out
I'm finally feeling somewhat free and I'm afraid
Free and I'm afraid that... [chorus]

We can catch this by the tail in time
As the ship sets sail we're all in flight
And we'll barrel past these starts tonight
And they're slowing down they're slowing down
I can barely see the flames
As we're slowing down can you ask this world to wait around
Just one more round

Yeah she's... [chorus]

Let this carry on just get me through these nights and days
Of this world
Oh will you follow and invade my runaway world
Would you watch me fade away or be my getaway
In this runaway world.

    General CommentTo me, this is about someone who's been scared to fall for someone before for fear of heartbreak, or maybe she's just been hurt before.
    And then someone comes along nd just breaks down all her defences.
    Story of my life tbh.

    General Commentthis song is beyond amazing
    i agree with the two above me

    the line "i've built my guard up just as high" is just..so right. when someone puts their guard up you don't want to let yourself feel vulnerable.

    and the "here's my heart for you" is just so bittersweet.

    ah, just love this song.

    General Commentthis song is about a girl who could never find commitment, who ran awaya from everything that ever loved her. and everyone tells this guy that shes "faithless" and that there is no hope in her. but he can't help but fall for her, and gives her his heart. and basically he is asking the girl, "would you watch me fade away, or be my get away?" bsaically asking if she'll stay true to him.

    General Commentwow making april is actually really good. This song is really pretty and deep, and the melody just flows so well. As for meaning, i agree with what everyone before me said. He loves a girl, but she's scared to let him in. Basically, he wants her to just let go and figuratively escape with him to his runaway world. Btw i downloaded this whole cd for free at purevolume.com everyone should so check it out!
