1...2...3...4
Lost my step, fell back down
Lost my breath chasing you around
Easy said, hard to do
My pride's halfway dead
Am I halfway to you?

And I never thought I'd be the one
Who would have to come back down
Now I'm running away
Running away back on the ground
And every time I lost my way
You were there to break my fall
Now I'm running away
Running away to leave it all

Wait for me, I fell behind
Honestly, this is my best try
It's not enough and it will never be
If it's good enough for you
Then that's good enough for me

And I never thought I'd be the one
Who would have to come back down
Now I'm running away
Running away back on the ground
And every time I lost my way
You were there to break my fall
Now I'm running away
Running away to leave it all

I wanna see
The world that's standing right in front of me
The only peace that I can find
The only home that you can be

I never thought I'd be the one
Who would have to come back down
Now I'm running away
Running away back on the ground
And every time I lost my way
You were there to break my fall
Now I'm running away
Running away to leave it all
Now I'm running away
Running away to leave it all
I'm running away
Running away to leave it all

    General CommentI think it's a song about giving things up for the other person, and leaving everything behind in order to get them back. Here's my play-by-play of the song:

    "Lost my step, fell back down/ Lost my breath/ chasing you around/ Easy said, hard to do/ My pride's halfway dead/ Am I halfway to you?"

    He screwed up, and now she's gone. He realized his mistake and now he's trying to find her again. His pride is crushed by all that he's done and doing, but all he wants to know is if he's any closer to getting her back.

    "And I never thought I'd be the one/ Who would have to come back down/ Now I'm running away/ Running away back on the ground/ And every time I lost my way/ You were there to break my fall/Now I'm running away/Running away to leave it all"

    He never thought he'd mess up like he has, and would have to go to such depths to get her back, but now he has, and he's ready to drop everything in order to get her back. She was always there for him and helped in, and now, all he wants is to have her back, so he'll "run away" from anything that's stopping them (be it a career, people's judgements, etc)

    "Wait for me, I fell behind/ Honestly, this is my best try/ It's not enough and it will never be/ If it's good enough for you/ Then that's good enough for me"

    He's asking her to take him back. He's doing all that he can, and he feels like all that he's done is never going to be enough to make up for what he did, but if she can find all that he's doing enough to take him back, then he'll accept that it was good enough.

    "I wanna see/The world that's standing right in front of me/ The only peace that I can find/ The only home that you can be"

    I'm not quite sure about this part. I think it's like relating to how he will "run away from it all" and when you run away, you see the world, so it's like he wants to see everything, as a person who is still with this girl. She brings him peace, and no mater where they are, it's like home, because all he needs is her.

    Anyway, that's my take on it.
