"Runaway" as written by Tai Jason, Simone Cogo, Jacopo Battaglia and Greta Svabo Bech....
I am more than you know, street lights and open roads
I am more than a face, stuck living in one place
So call me California
Call me what you will
'Cause I am bigger than this place
And so far from alone

I don't believe in your hate, 'cause these scars are gonna fade
So pour me out like water, and soak me up like rain

[Chorus: ]
Like a runaway
Spend these nights counting stars
Like a runaway
And maybe I could call this home tonight
Like a runaway

I whisper all these secrets, to a blank page on a line
I said we don't speak like lovers, and my words are dripping with wine
So call me California
Call me what you will
'Cause I am bigger than this place
And so far from alone

[Chorus: ]

When burning bridges won't come down
Like symphonies without a sound
I spend these nights counting stars
And wonder if there's hope for me out there, out there

[Chorus: Repeat 2X]

    General CommentI absolutely love this song. It's beautifully written, and I think the meaning behind it is to dream big. No matter what other people say about you, your dreams are yours to live.

    If you haven't heard this song yet, go to thrivingivory.com. It's the 3rd song on their sample playlist.

    General CommentThis is not only my favorite song by Thriving Ivory, but my favorite song over all. All of their songs are written beautifully! I like that you have to think about the lyrics, they don’t just come right out and say it. I definitely think this song is about a dream that seems impossible and others mock. It should be an anthem to all dreamers! It's about him breaking out and showing the people who didn’t think he could do anything what he CAN do! Amazing song
    I hold this song close to me because I too have a dream people mock and it seems imposible sometimes, I listen to this song as well as Alien on repeat! The part that really helps me is when he says "I'll Spend These Nights Counting Stars And Wonder If There's Hope For Me Out There!" This song means the world to me!
