"Runaway" as written by Will Young and Jonathan Sloan....
I can't give you the moment, the chance to be right
I won't save this for tonight
I can't give you the reason, the truth, or the light
But I will keep you in my sight

I can't say that I'm scared as this pain sets me free
I have lived without love, without all that I need
See the marks that I bare, and the shame that runs deep
You have made every moment so worthless to me and
I can't understand this at all

Runaway from this life
Is so far from the things that I know (Won't let go)
Get away from this fight, I don't want to give in or let go
I won't let go

I can't say that I'm proud, as this pain spreads through me
I have said my last words, I have thrown out the keys
I get back to despair, as my eyes fall asleep
Now our dreams come to ends, I am so incomplete and
I can't comprehend this at all

Runaway from this life
Is so far from the things that I know (That I know)
Get away from this fight, I don't want to give in or let go
I won't let go

I can't give you the reason, the truth, or the light
But I will keep you in my sight

Runaway from this life
Is so far from the things that I know
Get away from this fight, I don't want to give in or let go

Runaway from this life
Is so far from the things that I know (Won't let go)
Get away from this fight, I don't want to give in or let go
I won't let go

    General CommentIt's like someone who wants to run away, the other person loves that person and doesnt want them to.

    I can’t give you the reason, the truth, or the light
    But I will keep you in my sight

    They cant give the person the reason for the problems of life, the truth on this or the good side, good outcome, which is of course the light at the end of the tunnel.
