"Run Right Back In" as written by Ben Jorgensen, Peter James Decicco, Anthony Diionno and Nash Breen....
I've got soul working for me half the time
Only when I'm half alive
Thinking of someone else
I saw you praying just to pray for me
I felt something happening
I was just falling asleep

But thanks for your help
Thanks for your help
Pulling me from the flames
(Won't stop the fire)
I'll just wait till you leave
Then run right back in
I'll run right back in
I'll run right back in
I'll run right back in

I've got plans mostly just to hang around
Hoping for a hand-me-down
Staring at my bright future
I drive around waving like a sad parade
At the kids all out to play
I'm good
Go have fun on your own

But thanks for your help
Thanks for your help
Pulling me from the flames
(Won't stop the fire)
I'll just wait till you leave
Then run right back in
I'll run right back in
I'll run right back in
I'll run right back in

Can you see my room from there, burning, burning? (x4)

Pulling me from the flames
(Can try to pull me out)
Pulling me from the flames
(Can try to pull me out)
I'll run right back in
I'll run right back in
I'll run right back in

Pulling me from the flames
Pulling me from the flames
Pulling me from the flames

I'll run right back in (x5)

    General CommentFavorite off the new album! I think it has to do with drugs, which I believe many of the songs on this album touch on. not 100% though.

    General Commenti think it could be about anything destructive really

    it seems like someone is helping him to stop but he can only manage it when that person is around and knows that as soon as they leave, he's just going to go right back to doing whatever it was

    i don't know, that's just what it seems like to me

    General Commenti think it's "Won't stop the fire," not " "And stop the fire."

    to me, this song is about faith. ("I saw you praying just to pray for me/I felt something happening"). The fire could represent hell, or sin. ("Pulling me from the flames/won't stop the fire") The person in the song witnesses faith, and his or her friend is 'pulling' them from the fire, but once they leave they go back to the way they were and, "run right back in."

    General CommentI don't think they wrote it about drugs but i can see how it totally fits with that. i'm going through that and my boyfriend is about to leave for a month and i really appreciate him "pulling me from the fray" but in all honestly i'm just waiting till he leave to "run right back in"

    General CommentI think it could be about drugs or faith.
    But it could also be about a boring life the boy in song is living
    'I drive around waving like a sad parade
    At the kids all out to play
    I'm good
    Go have fun on your own'
    I probably am wrong
    But that's the way I see it
