"Running Alone" as written by and John/perry Bettis....
Looking down I watch the night
Running from the sun
Orphan stars and city lights
Fading one by one
Oh sweet memories
I call on you now
Two too many hearts been broke
Along this lonely road
Steel grey eyes can shine the lies
Until they look like gold
Cold city sidewalks can turn your heart to stone
The street won't defeat me
Cause I've got the will I'll survive
I don't mind runnin' alone
I believe that every soul
Has a song to sing
The spirit's locked in every man
Waiting for a wing
Oh so much is wasted
And oh so little used
The trick of the dreamer
Is keeping yourself from the blues
And I don't mind runnin'
Everyone's a hero
If you want to be
Everyone's a prisoner
Holding their own key
Every step I take
Every move I make
Always one step closer
I don't mind runnin' alone
Laughing children echo down
The concrete alleyways
Oh their voices
Calling, calling, calling yesterday
Oh sweet memories
Returning to me now
When young eyes saw clearly
Everyone's a hero
It you want to be
Everyone's a prisoner
Holding their own key
Every step I take
Every move I make
Always one step closer
I don't mind runnin' alone

    My InterpretationHe's broken up with his girl, for whatever reason. He's ok though. He understands that happiness lies with him not someone else, hence he doesn't mind being alone. He can recall the happiness of youth and the possibilities that lie waiting.

    This is such a great song and I'm sad no one has commented on this yet.
