This is the reason for letting go
Of the happy tears
'Cause it's worth the trouble of saying no
It's worth the outcome of learning to let go

I can't even stand you
There's too much I've seen that you don't know
I've buried alive inside of me
And I let it keep living even while it's killing
The only thing I think of in disdain
Is the one thing that's leading me
To late nights and no lights in front of the same screen
I can't say, I can't say no

This is the reason, oh, this is the reason for
'Cause it's worth the trouble of saying no
It's worth the outcome
This is the reason, oh, this is the reason for
'Cause it's worth the trouble of saying no
It's worth the outcome of learning to let go

I don't want to be here, I don't want to be here anymore
But I can't seem to lift these fingertips from
Keys that lead me through these same doors
The only thing I need to continually say is
"Get up, get up and run like hell"
And bury these keys but not down inside of me
I can't say, I can't say no

This is the reason, oh, this is the reason for
'Cause it's worth the trouble of saying no
It's worth the outcome
This is the reason, oh, this is the reason for
'Cause it's worth the trouble of saying no
It's worth the outcome of learning to let go

This is the last time, I know I said this last time
Oh oh oh oh
This is the last time, I know I said this last time
If I could take this chance I know I would
Just to take this divide away
If I could take this chance
If I could take this chance, oh

This is the reason, oh, this is the reason for
'Cause it's worth the trouble of saying no
It's worth the outcome
This is the reason, oh, this is the reason for
'Cause it's worth the trouble of saying no
It's worth the outcome of learning to let go

    General CommentThis song, its an amazing song, these boys are talented writers and I cant wait to hear more from them.. I havn't got their CD yet, as i live overseas from USA so it takes donkeys years for them to get it to here, but thats beside the point..

    Run is great.. To me its about running from your problems and how hard it is to stop running from them

    General CommentFrom what I can tell this song is about a someone with an addiction to porn. If you listen to it from that point of view it makes sense especially these two lines:

    The only thing I think of in disdain
    Is the one thing that's leading me
    To late nights and no lights in front of the same screen

    But I can't seem to lift these fingertips from
    Keys that lead me through these same door

    He wants to say know and knows it is worth the outcome, but it is so difficult because it's an addiction.
