"We Could Run Away" as written by and Nathaniel Rinehart William Rinehart....
Everything stops as we look towards the clock
It feels like we're moving backwards
It's easy to find potential in before
But we look the same in the afters

Could we wait long enough to bide my time
Could we stay and say enough to change my mind

We could run away
Maybe we could change
Get back on our feet and then
Maybe make it home again
We could run away
Be on our own again
Maybe in the twilight
We can break out
Buy ourselves a Cadillac
Never turn around
We could run away
Be on our own again

We could stay here where things became unclear
Fighting what's left of the right way
But everyone hates the chances that we waste
Under the light of the new day

Could we wait long enough to bide my time
Could we stay and say enough to change my mind

We could run away
Maybe we could change
Get back on our feet and then
Maybe make it home again
We could run away
Be on our own again
Maybe in the twilight
We can break out
Buy ourselves a Cadillac
Never turn around
We could run away
Be on our own again

    General Commentgreat song, probably my favourite by them - love the lead singers voice so much. the meaning's pretty straightforward i think, wanting to get away from the things bad things in your life and never looking back.

    My InterpretationLooking back, we could try to figure out what exactly went wrong and sift through the mess, but what good would it do? What good is sifting through the sand and trying to figure out which one was the problem do? Is measuring our life by mistakes or succeeding worth at all? The answer lies in getting away from the problem even when your in it. The answer lies in going to place where you can be safe and secure (listen to their song, "A place only you can go") even in the midst of the chaos and figure out who you are and the world. I heard a saying once, "Running away doesn't always mean escaping your troubles, but rather coming back home".
