"All in Your Hands" as written by and Jonathan Luke/nixon Mcduffee....
The guts it's taken you
Just to say what you mean.
Let's do this right tonight.
Cause there's no in between.

The self deprecation of
What you put your faith in
Has brought you to your knees.
You're waiting at the starting line,
What if the gun is empty?

[Chorus]
Run
Leave it all alone.
Just run.
It's all in your hands, all in your hands.
It's all in your hands, all in your hands.

The questions never asked,
You'll never find the answer.
Waiting for the truth,
Could become your cancer.
That could form in ways in this tragic way,
Have this stage set for a great ending.
We're miles from the finish line.
Is your heart worth defending?

[Chorus]

We've taken this, for way too long.
We're taking this tonight.

Leave it all alone.
It's all in your hands, all in your hands. [Repeat: x3]

We're taking this alive.
We're taking this alive.
You're standing at the finish line.
We're taking this alive.
We're taking this alive.

Leave it all and run

    Song MeaningCan someone explain the meaning behind these lyrics? I have an idea, but want to know if I'm correct or not. I have tendancy to interpert songs to mean things that align with what's going on in my life, when that might not be the original intent of the writer of the song. Thanks for your help!

    General CommentHere what I think it means(:

    "The guts it's taken you, Just to say what you mean. Let's do this right tonight. Cause there's no in between."
    She told him she loved him and wanted to run away.

    "The self deprecation of What you put your faith in. Has brought you to your knees. You're waiting at the starting line, What if the gun is empty?"
    She doesn't believe in what she did before, and now she wants to go, but where?

    "Run, leave it all alone, just run, its all in your hands"
    He's telling her to leave it all behind, and go if she really wants to.

    "The questions never asked, You'll never find the answer. Waiting for the truth, Could become your cancer. That could form in ways in this tragic way, Have this stage set for a great ending. We're miles from the finish line. Is your heart worth defending?"
    She's waiting for the right time to leave, but it could never be the right time. She's ready to leave, but he doesn't know if she know this might not end well, and if someone comes after her, is she worth defending?

    "Were taking this alive, you're standing at the finish line."
    The leave and start a new life together.

    Not the best interpretation, and it's probably not even correct, but this is mine. So, hope you take this into consideration(:
