"Don't Hide Away" as written by Justin Rice and Christian Rudder....
On the night in question
you took from the records from your record collection
and smashed them into pieces, pieces on the ground.
And you didn't even try to deny it.
You said that you needed it quiet.
They were playing, they were playing, and you had to get away from the sound.

Don't hide away too high or low.
I'd really like to see you, don't you know?
Don't hide away. Please keep in close.
Cause if I can't seem to find you, then you'll stay alone.

By your own admission, there is nothing left to eat in the kitchen, and the garbage and the clutter is piling up out in the hall. Well you know I'm gonna write you a letter, every day like you were a debtor, so you might as well pick up the phone and give me a call.

Don't hide away too high or low.
I'd really like to see you, don't you know?
Don't hide away. Please keep in close.
Cause if I can't seem to find you, then you'll stay alone.

Don't hide away too high or low.
I'd really like to see you, don't you know?
Don't hide away. Please keep in close.
Cause if I can't seem to find you, then you'll stay alone.

    My InterpretationIt appears to be a monologue from a person who recently went through a break-up and is now expressing his/her remorse over loosing his/her partner. The artist begins by running through the break-up but thens begin to ask the person to return even threatening at the end of the song with the last line.
