"You Can Keep Me Runnin' Around" as written by Brian Aiken, Brian Paneccasio, Austin Fisher and Quinn Walker....
You can keep me runnin' around,
Faster than the speed of a sound.
Beat you then you're heat to the ground.
Kick you when you're already down.

And all the other kids are wondering why they kick it out.
And all the other kids are shouting that it's figured out.
Then you turn around, you turn around, I can't be found.
Then you wonder why, you wonder why I can't be found.

You can stop me runnin' around.
Shed some sorrow off of a pound.
Pull some laughter out of your frown.
You know I think you're fit for a crown.

And then you wonder why, you wonder why I care so much.
Then we're out of touch, we're out of touch, we're out of touch.
And all the other kids are up in arms we hang so much.
But we're both magnets to each others charms and other stuff.

Yeah yeah, oh yeah.

You can keep me runnin' around.
Especially since we're in the same town.
Just loosen up those old chains that bound
you from this precious life that we've found.

And I adore when we lay where you always lay.
We play like children play when we play like children play.
Then I go away for several days. I go away.
But your electricity is with me everyday.

Yeah yeah, oh yeah.

    General CommentSeems to me like a story of a relationship that started when they were young and paused but grew when they were older. Now it's a sort of long distance relationship but the space doesn't stop the love.
