"Running Out" as written by Kori Gardner Hammel and Jason Edward Hammel....
You have the upper hand,
To open up the door
Running out,
Running out.
Running out
Shouldn't give youth back.

I have a hardened chain
Connected to my arms.
Running out,
Running out.
Running out
Shouldn't pull apart.

Let's trade this tired home,
For all it's worth in paper.
Running out,
Running out.
Running out,
You react.

Tired of singing.
(You're tied up, never) tired of singing.
(You're tied up, never) tired of singing.
(You're tied up, never) tired of singing.
(With time we're getting) tired of singing.

Revolutionary mind,
Never know to draw the line.
Running out,
Running out.
Running out
Like a fire so sweet.

Tired of singing.
(You're tied up, never) tired of singing.
(You're tied up, never) tired of singing.
(You're tied up, never) tired of singing.
(You're tied up, never) tired of singing.

This will bring you closer.
You want it, you want it.
This will bring you closer.
You want it, you want it.
You want it, you want it.

Imitating Bransby imitating them.
Imitating Bransby imitating them. (You want it, you want it)

This will bring out closer.
Never have to say it.
This will bring out closer. (You want it, you want it)
Never have to say it.

(You're tied up, never) tired of singing.

    General CommentTo me this song is about lost hope, and feeling as if you cant stay the way you are and be happy. "Running Out" to me...means the we're Running Out of Reasons to live. I still love this song.

    General CommentI think it may be Running Out like bustin' out without caring (like a fire so sweet)... And also compares to Running out ... of Time.. like getting tired, getting older.. I really really don't think it's Running out of Reasons to live at all, as the first comment suggests. ...

    I would LOVE to know what "Imitating Bransby" means...

    General CommentI agree with mandapop. Not relly the running out of time, but jsut running out and away from their old and mundane lives (...lets trade this tired home for all it's worth in paper...) like they're going to start fresh and be spontaneous and adventurous

    General CommentBeautiful song, i love her voice.
    "Let's trade this tired home,
    for all it's worth in paper."
    Would pretty obviously mean selling your home, paper being money, i think its just about two activists or rebels who are on the run but are eventually getting tired of running
