"Runaway" as written by and Chad Smith John Anthony Frusciante....
Walkin' around
All over town
Walkin' it out, when you want to
Soldiering my stylus, smiling
Turn it into whatever I choose and
Take me now to the water

Chorus:
Don't be late I hear it's
Gonna be so very great and
Out the door I'm walkin' like a runaway
All the reasons that I count up you can't
Haul away and
More and More I'm wanderin' like a runawy

Kick it around
Stare at the ground
Breakin' it down, when you want to
Soldering my days are chosen
Dance around do whatever I want to
Take me now, it's the water

Chorus

I think I know
Everything you're gonna say
I think you know
Why I wanna runaway

Chorus X3

    General CommentTo me, it means that he maintains his composure and doesnt show his love towards her, but he starts to runaways from his composure and starts showing his love for her, running from his responsibilities and showing his love no matter what. or so that might be

    General CommentThis is a breakup song. He's laying down the process of a girl breaking up with him. Listen to the lyrics from the bridge and he's explaining that he's afraid to hear the words that he knows are coming. The words being, "it's over".
    He's been in denial about his relationship even though his intuition is telling him that the girl does not love him and wants it to end.
