"Stand Up and Run" as written by Ian D'sa, Ben Kowalewicz, Jon Gallant and Aaron Solowoniuk....
Oh I had a feeling
Buried inside
Covered beneath your
Blanket of pride
Oh I couldn't tell you
how numb I felt inside
In so little time

Stand up and run
Stand up and run
Stand up and run
Stand up and run
Into my arms

Chasing the bright lights
This city got old
You walked out of my life
and into the cold
It's hard to imagine that you'd
never come home
Forever alone

Stand up and run
Stand up and run
Stand up and run
Stand up and run
Into my arms

Stand up and run
Stand up and run
Stand up and run
Stand up and run
Into my heart

Can't you see there is not logic to love?
And we're lost just like the stars up above
If I'd only known how you'd make me feel
I would kiss the ground that touches your heel
After all these years of being apart
Don't let reason try to tear us apart
If the compass strikes then follow your heart
And I hope it leads your right back into my arms

(Stand up and run)
And the time has past
(Stand up and run)
We'll still make it last
(Stand up and run)
And I hope this leads you right back into my arms
Oh into my arms

Oh I had a feeling
Buried inside

    My InterpretationI think some of these lyrics might be wrong...I'll use the lyrics that I think are right in my explanation.

    On the surface, it seems like it might be about a person that he had a falling out with and their reconciliation.

    But I think it might go deeper too. He might be talking about his relationship with "God", for lack of a better word.

    The song seems to switch back and forth between him and a personification of "God".

    [Him talking to "God"]
    Oh I had a feeling
    Buried inside
    Covered beneath a
    Blanket of pride
    Oh I couldn't tell you
    How my heart felt inside
    In so little time
    [/Him talking to "God"]

    ["God" talking to him]
    Stand up and run
    Stand up and run
    Stand up and run
    Stand up and run
    Into my arms

    Chasing the bright lights
    This city got old
    You walked out of my life
    And into the cold
    It's hard to imagine that you'd
    Never come home
    Forever alone

    Stand up and run
    Stand up and run
    Stand up and run
    Stand up and run
    Into my arms
    [/"God" talking to him]

    [Him talking to "God"]
    Stand up and run
    Stand up and run
    Stand up and run
    Stand up and run
    Into my heart

    Can't you see there is not logic to love?
    And we're lost just like the stars up above
    If I'd only known how you'd make me feel
    I would kiss the ground that touches your heel
    [/Him talking to "God"]

    ["God" talking to him]
    After all these years of being apart
    Don't let reason try to tear us apart
    If the compass breaks then follow your heart
    And I hope it leads your right back into my arms
    [/"God" talking to him]

    [Could either one of them talking, except for the "Stand up and run", which is "God"]
    (Stand up and run)
    And the time has past
    (Stand up and run)
    We'll still make it last
    (Stand up and run)
    [/Could either one of them talking, except for the "Stand up and run", which is "God"]

    ["God" talking to him]
    And I hope this leads you right back into my arms
    Oh into my arms
    [/"God" talking to him]

    [Could be either one of them talking. Either he's just repeating it, or maybe it's "God" saying he had a feeling that he'd be back.]
    Oh I had a feeling
    Buried inside
    [/Could be either one of them talking. Either he's just repeating it, or maybe it's "God" saying he had a feeling that he'd be back.]

    Like a lot of people, he probably went through a stage in his life where reason and logic were of the utmost importance. While crucial, there's something missing from that. Usually it's something logic and reason can't effectively explain. You can only really put your finger on it once you've felt it.

    Eventually, if you're paying attention, you might discover what it is to you and have a chance for reconciliation.
