"Water Runs" as written by Andrew Mcfarland, Graham Ulicny, Ryan Engelberger and William Kennedy....
Water Runs
Through my veins
Looking out from the car

You rest your head
Upon my arm
Pretend to sleep
And there we are

Nothing would prepare me for the thing we have become
What have I done?
My darling
What have I done?

But if you see me running down the street
Say I wanna be your friend

It's a phrase I don't say often enough
Don't want to scare or to offend

Yeah if my body's a holy temple
And my mind is the web I spin

There's a feeling inside my insides
But it just won't let me in

I step out through
The bathroom door
Water running down my arms

Zachary, you hold me close
My body trembles
In your arms

I became a lifeless shadow, lashing out in pain
I'll never go there again
Don't wanna go there again
I'll never go there again

But if you run into me on the street
Say I wanna be your friend

It's a phrase I don't say often enough
Don't want to scare or to offend

Yeah if my body's a holy temple
And my mind is the web I spin

There's a feeling inside my insides
But it just won't let me in

    General CommentSurprised no one else has commented on this song.

    My take is that it's about the end of a relationship where you know it's ending, so you look out the car window, and pretend to sleep, to hide what you are thinking. You try and sort out the thoughts in your mind but it's a tangled web, and you can't quite sort out your feelings.
