"Run, Don't Walk" as written by Cassadee Pope, David Katz and Sam Hollander....
I am restless and I keep trembling
Everyone watch me as I descend
Into a feeling that's overwhelming me
I've finally stopped, stopped making sense

I can't stop talking to myself
I'm a desperate cry for help

Run, don't walk
The sky is falling through
Don't talk tonight, so confused
I'm lost, I'm lost with you

I don't care where we are or
Where we're heading to
But I know I'm lost
I'm lost with you, with you

You're mouth keeps moving but I've lost focus now
Clock keeps ticking, time's running out
Where we're headed, there is no heading back
Trip ain't ugly, I'm losing ground

I can't stop talking to myself
A desperate cry for help

Run, don't walk
The sky is falling through
Don't talk tonight, so confused
I'm lost, I'm lost with you

I don't care where we are or
Where we're heading to
But I know I'm lost
I'm lost with you, with you

For the record, when I'm with you
Things are looking better for once
Everything is brighter
Than the darkness before you

Run, don't walk
The sky is falling through
Don't talk tonight, so confused
I'm lost, I'm lost with you

Run, don't walk
The sky is falling through
Don't talk tonight, so confused
I'm lost, I'm lost with you

I don't care where we are or
Where we're heading to
But I know I'm lost
I'm lost with you

    General CommentShes lost and doesn't know what to do. Shes confused about so many things, but shes glad to be going through this with him. Only he can get her out of this mess.

    I love this song.<3

    (you say they are the new paramore, you obviously have a hard time understanding music.)

    General CommentSeventeen magazine described them as "having the sound of Paramore." Maybe it's just me, but they sound almost entirely different from Paramore, no? They're still decent, though.

    General CommentDanaTheGoldfish, I completely agree. Just because they're a band fronted by a female singer, in the same kind of genre, it means they're like Paramore? I don't get it myself.
    xAlternativex, I think you got it spot on.

    General Commentin my personal opinion, i can see where people get there musical similarities with paramore, myself i think there more like youmeatsix or all time low? just fronted by a girl, you know catchy verses powerful louder catchier chorus?
    anyone agree with that
    All time low?
    youmeatsix?
    maybe even Cute is what we aim for, slightly, very slightly.

    I think its definitly about falling for someone, that speaks for itself. she's unsure about what makes sense anymore, maybe liking him doesnt make sense to her?
    She loves being with him, and she doesnt care what happens aslong as she is
    But she still knows he clouds her better judgement, but she doesnt care
    yeahh All Time Low ish
    i love all those 3 bands
    and these guys
    I'M SEEING THEM SOON YAYYY! (:
    Amazing song, fantastic band.
    Does anyone know if/when there second album will be out?

    General CommentI think they are classified with Paramore becuase they are both Alternative bands with girl singers and the rest of their bands are boys. Making them similar but I believe they are not the same. Even though I love them both.

    But I think this song is about Cassadee Pope (the lead singer if you didn't know) wanting to escape everything that's going on in her life. Like faster than walker. Hence "Run, Don't Walk". lol
